This may be a huge rumor, so I apologize if it is. But I heard GYY was in serious talks with another carrier. G4 maybe to LAS and SFB? Unless, is Hooters Air ever going to restart service to LAS especially now that they have their casino open. Any other ideas what the carrier could be? Good for GYY though if so. I'm surprised this so called Festival Airlines ( if it ever happens) didn't choose GYY over RFD only because it is based in Chicago and has some investment from Chicago companies. WIth GYY being closer to Chicago and on the lake, would have figured that would have been a good fit for them. GYY definitely can alteast support vacation destinations, I'm not sure about business passengers though.

Just a rumor pal. United was in series talks with the airport but, UAL wouldn't put any mainline service into the airport so GYY and UAL went seperate ways. G4 WILL NOT fly to GYY until the runway is extended. This has been a serious battle between their dispatch and airport ops. The G4 folks seem to think they will never be able to go NOn stop to anywhere with a full load.
