US Airways Express will go seasonal with ACK-LGA, with service ending Feb. 10th. Flights will most likely resume at the end of April or early May. First time in recent memory that there hasn't been any NYC-ACK service.

Had no idea they even serve that in the winter. Those must be some of the emptiest flights anywhere.

Looks like it was operated with a Beech 1900. Much smaller than the B6 ERJ-190's that were on JFK-ACK for awhile.

I wonder if this means that B6 beat the competition with their Cape Air alliance.

B6 flies JFK-ACK seasonally.

Yep, they've been doing it for years. They even used to have an HPN-ACK seasonal route. Tickets could cost over $1000 for a roundtrip.

ACK has some serious seasonal service in the summer. Last year they had, in addition to regular year-round service, B6 to JFK, CO to EWR, DL to JFK, and US to PHL and DCA. I wonder if Eagle will ever come back...

It's just another casualty of Colgan reducing their Beech 1900D service.

USX will resume the LGA service in the high season with Saab 340Bs and Dash 8s, as well as the DCA and PHL service, and will again be the airport's largest carrier.

Er, US management had nothing to do with this.  Yeah sure

Colgan Air management made the decision all on their own.

I am positive that he/she means that it is seasonal on jetBlue metal, which it most certainly is.

It is of course year-round on a codeshare with KAP.

jetBlue's service on its own a/c's IS seasonal, the codeshare is year-round.

Why would Pinnacle get involved in a relatively minior decision such as this?

Dont forget Certificated Air Carrier: Air New England....they flew DC3s FH-227s into Nantucketin the 70s.... They were not a Commuter carrier but an actual certificated airline just like the big boys......I believe tho, post deregulation PBA during summer months would use DC3s or Martin 404s and later YS-11s into ACK.....

Because Colgan no longer makes decisions based on where they fly; Pinnacle does. This primarily has to do with Colgan being cut down to 4-6 B1900 for EAS routes in Maine.
