So who wants to take a poll as to when the first pax gets diagnosed with DVT from their sardine like seat pitch?  

On a slightly more serious note. Can anyone find a flight info page on skybus.com? I can't. Being that they have no published phone number, what is someone to do who is going to pick skybus passengers up? I guess, go to the airport and wait, hope the flights ontime.

For an airline who is trying to save money, surprisingly, they accept Credit Cards

"You can pay for these items with cash, or with your American Express, Diners Club, Discover, MasterCard or Visa. Skybus does not accept debit cards unless they're combination debit/credit cards."

The Sales attendants, may not be doing many transactions, theres a big loophole in there no food policy.

"In most cases, Skybus offers these items for sale during your flight, so we ask that you not bring anything on board. The only exception is for passengers who will need food that we're unable to provide, for example baby formula or baby food, special food for those with a medical condition such as diabetes or severe food allergies, or those with dietary restrictions (Kosher, Muslim, etc). "


All you have to do is go to your local grocery store, find some mainstream items that are Kosher, and your all set.

Also from the skybus website
"No, drinks aren't free. Give us a break - some of you paid just $10 for your seat."

What about the people who paid $175 or $390, I hope they get a "drink pass" or something.

I think he means, if someone is going to the airport they won't have direct access to the internet, as they are driving. therefore how are they to check the status.... That said,, call a friend, people need to be creative.

Actually, by accepting Credit Cards they could save a lot of money. I know the acquirer company will charge them a fee in the range of 1 to 4% depending on sales volume, but the cash management process could be very expensive for an airline, since they will have to collect cash every night from all flights and make a deposit into their bank account the next day. Additinally, someone will have to audit all products sold and see if the number of products match the amount of cash. Therefore, I will say that by accepting Credit Cards they are trying to simplify the process and save money!!

There is a general perception that DVT is caused by seat pitch. It is not, directly, anyway. It is casued by a lack of activity and motion in the legs. Mainly because blood has to return to the heart against the flow of gravity. There are only two ways it can do this

1) Blood comming from the heart will "push" the blood through the viens.
2) The contraction and relaxation of muscles in legs etc casue the vessels to be constricted and returned to the heart.

It is point 2 which is absent when people are in flight. However, the other point is that rates of DVT are actually higher in Permium cabins than in Y. I am 6'2'' and I have to problems stretching my legs out fully under the seat in front of me in a 28" pitch cabin.

Anywya, I would like to wish SkyBus the best, and I am sure their Low Fares will attract people, and "educate" Americans how to fly!

Skybus is not "how to fly". You might say, well you sacrifice a little comfort but you get an amazing deal. For most people thats wrong. There are people who fly from Columbus to Burbank for $20 ($40 including taxes), yes, but most do not, most are going to pay close to what someone like Southwest, Spirit, Airtran, or Jetblue charges. So now I'm paying close to the same price as a full service LCC and I get drinks, decent seat pitch (34" WN/36" Jetblue), I can fly to an airport in the city I want to go not 60 miles away, I don't have to pay to check luggage, I don't have to deal with flight attendants that are underpaid and need to try to sell me stuff from their catalog to make ends meet.

I wonder it they charged each passenger extra to pay for the water cannon salute.  laughing  Maybe they also install quarter machines on the lavatory doors, and on the armrests to recline your seat. "Ladies and Gentleman, if you wish to recline your seat, please deposit 25 cents in the slot on your armrest. If you wish to use the lavatory, please deposit 50 cents into the slot on the door.
