Quoting MFEFlyer (Reply 2): Just a question, would G4 ever aquire other aircraft aside from the MD aircraft, such as a 752 or 738?
I can only guess since they seem to surprise me more and more these days. But my feeling is that Allegiant will probably follow the example of Southwest and stay with 1 aircraft series for the near future.

Quoting B757capt (Reply 7): As far as the quietly pulling the 757 out of town. Well hey if you cant make money somewhere you need to put it somewhere you can.
I'm not denying that, but a 757 was a pretty big bird for any run from ABE. Someone needs to talk to Mr. Doughty though, as of Sunday evening there was still a sign for LAS flights on Hooters at ABE.
One stormy night, I do remember seeing that thing landing here damn near full. The poor economy parking lot shuttle driver wasn't able to drop off all the customers at their trunks like normal, because he had a few bus loads still waiting at the terminal. In general though, too many people had WN on their brain here and were driving to PHL.

Another destination for Allegiant. Absolutely great! Glad to see they will be filling in the voids left by the other carriers that used to fly these routes. I know it's too late this season, but maybe in 2007 could Allegiant open up either MIA or FLL for cruise season and open up cruise packages? I was just wondering if they were thinking of that option as long term thinking. Thanks in advance if anyone has any info

Well ABE does have LAS service via hooters but,......... Its a very very long day to get there. Only on Thursdays (outbound Sunday Return.) ABE-MYR 737-200 then 737-300 MYR-RFd-LAS. Return is the same just flipped routing.
The views written by this user are in no manner the views of my employer and should not be thought as such.
I don't know. We are about to rap up 2 weeks of flying for Funjet, who had TMA doing LAS-CLE and LAS-SAT service. Who knows whats next? Goodness knows where the next turn will take us. We are already starting SFB-PSM, SFB-SWF, SFB-ORH, LAS-TOL, and TOL-SFB service. FATFlyer, did I miss anything?????

Quoting FATFlyer (Reply 17): I lose track too. Plus I'm told there is a strong possibility of another route announcement this week. Lots of rumored cities these days so I'm not even going to speculate.
Come on. Just toss em all out there so that we allegiant fans can let our imaginations run wild.

I like both Hooters and Allegiant. Have from day 1. But if Hooters doesn't get their act together and start running their airline like an airline instead of a restaurant, Allegiant is going to eat Hooters (no pun intended).
Wait...I just thought of it....how about Hooters Girls on Allegiant as a severance? Maybe G4 can come up with their own brand of chiken wings, less greasy? Oh man....the brain cells are turnin' today!!!

Quoting MFEFlyer (Reply 22): Will G4 ever fly into larger cities (as an airline of course), such as LAX or IAH?
Not if there is any direct competition in that market. The G4 market is underserviced markets and that niche seems to work. But, again, the guys making those decisions are very good at what they do and they have all the numbers. I have to support them as they have proven time and time again that they know what they are doing. I still think FATFlyer is a consultant here or something!!!
