The last I have heard about Festival Airlines was the following:
Start-up Festival Airlines will begin flights to Pensacola this fall. CEO Carl George says the airline will begin flying to eight cities out of Chicago... In October. Other initial destinations are Orlando, Fort Myers, St. Petersburg.....Las Vegas, San Juan, Phoenix, And San Diego. George anticipates one or two flights per week to each city..... As part of 3- or 4-day vacation packages. Pensacola will also serve as Festival's base of operations for training and light maintenance. George expects to have those operations in place by December.

I will keep an eye out for any un-usual activity at PNS.

And they are talking Williams/Gateway in Mesa, AZ rather than PHX. This might work for a leisure airline, with the number of transplants from the Chicago, Wisconsin area and then in spring with Cubs baseball.
