I would imagine not all aircraft need maintnence every Tuesday, so they changed that a little while back. They currently fly to MSO and PSC on Tuesdays.

I think they started Tuesday flights this summer on some routes where they added extra flihts on a seasonal basis. Im sure FATFlyer or ATCRick can confirm. There is only so many planes they can maintain at once on a Tuesday!!!

The only way to increase frequency and add service at the moment is to fly on Tuesdays. Not that long ago Allegiant didn't fly on Saturdays. Now Saturdays have 40+ flights. This trend will continue. Goodbye no fly Tuesdays.

Good for Peoria. I've flown Allegiant twice from Peoria to Las Vegas and love the convenience of the airport, flight times, etc. I've heard that the airline does hella business from there. People have driven from all over Illinois to fly the Allegiant service...and there's me coming up from St. Louis.

Does anyone know how much advertising they do in the Peoria area and the surrounding areas?

If you travel from Peoria...make sure you tell Nancy that Gav in STL says hi.

I hope you don't drive from STL to PIA just to fly Allegiant?? You do know they fly out of BLV right??

Who groundhandles G4 out of PIA?....I groundhandle flts for G4 in GRB and i've heard one advertisement on the radio for them, and we've been groundhandling for almost a year now. But loads are always heavy.

Seems like G4 is growing pretty nicely. Anybody have any insight as to when they might update the fleet with an order for 737's or 320's?

Would also be nice to see them do some point-to-point also.

Probably 2 or 3 years out, after the stock IPO. In the meantime they will probably do another 8 to 10 MD-80 series aircraft in the next 12 months.

The business plan calls for them to stay focused on leisure destinations. They will add additional vacation spots in the US/Mexico/etc and continue to grow via leisure travel.

They fly out of Belleville twice a week. I took them from Belleville once and I was pleased with the service but I'll drive up to Peoria because I can go out in the morning of day 1 and return in the evening of day 2, or the next day. Often times I can get $79 one way out of Peoria long after the cheap fares or available seats are gone from St. Louis.

I took Allegiant the first time from Peoria for the A.Net meet in Las Vegas in March.

I always see their ads in the local newspaper's Sunday edition. This past Sunday's paper contained an ad for part-time employees as well. PIA is one of the top G4 destinations. I just wish we could get SFB back!

I wish they would bring back PIA-SFB. I guess they didn't get decent bookings with FL so close in BMI. But the route map looks weird as PIA is surrounded by cities with service to SFB.

PIA-SFB might come back but it won't be for a year or two. Fuel costs are a big factor as is current aircraft availability. Hopefully marketing will be a little smarter about scheduling it to arrive at the same time as the LAS-PIA flight like its currently being done in RFD.

FL's BMI-MCO service definitely hurt and the competing, daily and seasonal service currently offered by DL keeps fares so low in that market that one will have to blink before, IMHO, G4 ever considers PIA-SFB again.

If we can't get G4 to do it, maybe we could get DL to run PIA-MCO in May to September 2007? I bet the GPAA has talked to them about it.
