From ABE:

PIE, FLL, MCO, and they're now listing BWI as bookable, according to www.lvia.org I do not know if the listing for LAS is current though, with the ongoing flux in their RFD ops. Many of the ABE Florida flights continue from AVP as a little stub end of the routings.

http://www.hootersair.com/destinations/route_map/ seems to be drastically out of date, still showing RFD, the GYY-ABE runs, and no AVP.

Those Florida destinations are some of their standards for other markets as well it seems.

I know Hooters has a somewhat nice sized operation in BWI as well, and PIT, LCK, and others received the MYR service. GYY it seems has lost all Hooters service though.

The A.net resident Hooters Air source/expert is b757capt, he can answer all your questions much better than I could ever even attempt to.

Yes it is. However, they are flying from Allentown Pa to PIE and to MCO. I'm not sure if they are still flying out of Rockford IL and Allentown Pa to LAS.... But, either way it does not leave a lot of money coming in for them......

Quoting DTWAGENT (Reply 5):

RFD is gone, and if there is an ABE-LAS, it has multiple stops/connections. I actually think their LAS is completely gone as well.

LAS is not gone all the RFD flights will be routed to GYY starting March (or at least that is the plan) DEN service will not resume from GYY though.


The views written by this user are in no manner the views of my employer and should not be thought as such.

Thanks B757capt.

Is Allegiant hurting you guys on your ABE routes any?

Starting and stopping destinations really alienates passengers. Hooters Air does only cater to leisure customers, but they are struggling with all these changes. This is kind of reminiscent of the latest Pan Am reincarnation. I did fly Hooters Air and really liked their service. Hopefully the airline continues to find some leisure routes. I hope they do well although I am sad that they left RFD. They finally were getting a name for themselves.

I am guessing the cessation of MYR has something to do with the fact that no one really wants to go there in the winter. It is too cold. Florida and the Caribbean seem more appealing in the dead of winter.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
