My Mother told me she heard SFB-IWA on the Orlando news last night. Can anyone confirm this? I believe the 83 and 87 could make that, but not the 82. Is that correct?

Hmmm that would be interesting to see IWA-SFB, but looking at it, I bet that would be a great route. I never thought I'd see a flight from Hub to Hub, but we may see that this fall.

Agreed. I'll guess and say Bellingham & Allentown will be two of the first routes announced tomorrow.

Nice to see ABE getting some more attention. With Allegiant's service, and US' mainline service to CLT, it seems like the Lehigh is coming closer (albeit very, very slowly) to being a relief airport for PHL. Now if only the prices would go down somewhat.

Any word on timetables for the ABE flight? There are currently three flights a day to ABE (from SFB and St. Petersburg) that come in at all different times.

I would think that if they get the service, you might see the 2x weekly on something like Tues/Fri

But there is no guarantee until they start announcing.

According to their 2nd quarter financials
"Allegiant also leased two additional MD-80 aircraft during the second quarter, one of which was placed in service by quarter end. The other leased MD-80 was placed into service in July, along with an owned MD-80, bringing our current operating fleet to 29 MD-80 aircraft..... We also have committed to purchase a total of eight MD-80 aircraft for delivery to us through the first quarter of 2008. Of these eight aircraft, six would come with seller-financing."

The most recent aircraft added seems to have come from storage and previously was at AeroMexico. I wonder if the upcoming aircraft have the same source.

It could be PIE. Just because they say new Florida service, that doesn't mean it will be the new base.

A quick thought has just come to mind. Could Allegiant seasonal route adjustments free up aircraft for some or all of these new routes?

I believe some of these adjustments are just starting to kick in now. YNG for example has lost their only Allegiant flights for 90 days. Here are some adjustments at RFD:

"Allegiant Air is adding a weekly Wednesday flight each way between Chicago/Rockford International Airport and Orlando-Sanford, Fla., from Oct. 10 to Nov. 8.

The route drops from four flights a week to two in September, but will be back up to three with the additional Wednesday flights.

From November on, the route returns to four flights a week. The changes are due to seasonal changes in demand — last fall, Allegiant also reduced service on the route."

FatFlyer would know more about other seasonal adjustments I am sure.

I know I posted this earlier, but does anyone else think Lansing, MI is a good candidate for both destinations? The flights are well supported and they seem very comfortable with Lansing being a launch destination. We were one of the first for SFB and PIE if I remember.

Also, a lot of people in Michigan love to go out to Arizona during the winter.

Thoughts welcome

I totally agree with those routes. Does that bring any other airports up to five destinations with Allegiant besides Des Moines.

Just Read This. Allegiant announced Wednesday, Tuesday, and Saturday service to Sioux Falls. Thats up to 6x week for this winter I think. Is this a sign that FSD is great contender for FLL and IWA?

What about the starting of service to EVV? I understand the proximity to Mid-America, but IMHO EVV could definitely work for Allegiant.

Somewhere I read or heard that the cities will be announced at a home baseball game , in PIA, of the minor league team there. I also thought that the announcement was going to be made Aug. 25.

If my memory is indeed correct that I think it would be safe to assume that both FLL and IWA. I cant imagine they would make an announcement in PIA and PIA is not one of the cities for the new flights.

RFD will probably have all 5 as well, as Id expect to see them get FLL and IWA. Maybe Peoria as well
