Three generations of the Sitosky family were already packing for a trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C., when an e-mail arrived from Southern Skyways Airlines that their flights were being canceled because of high gas costs....The e-mail promised and offered discount rates on flights to Myrtle Beach from Pittsburgh and Rickenbacher Airport outside of Columbus. The family's original tickets had them departing from Akron-Canton.

Early Myrtle Beach flights canceled for airplane maintenance

You cant fall if you dont really exist........ They're not really an "airline" either.


Although this does surprise me, Southern Skyways has historically been very consistent and never alters or cancels routes. (joke)

And flying old planes to MYR or ACY is always a recipe for success Wink

So much for their RFD-DEN service they had planned. LOL. Joke of an operation if anyone thought it would be anywhere near a success.

Don't forget they earlier had announced CRW-LAS-OAK as well, and folded on that before it ever took flight.

DAY-MYR was also canned.

Pretty safe assumption the whole operation will soon be canned.

I thought I read on anthother thread about this airline a few months back stating that this airline went out of business. I guess I was wrong. Never heard of or even seen them around. Do they even exist??? (joking)

Hi!

They aren't an airline. They contract with various air carriers to provide service to specific routes. They are re-working their MYR service at the present time.

Right. They do scheduled charters as they are an 'indirect air carrier' per DOT specs.

Rockford Register Star reported that Southern Skyways and RFD decided to drop RFD-DTW (no surprise there) due to low interest. But, they are going to increase RFD-DEN from 3 flights a week to four, adding one on thursdays. Also, they are considering adding a larger plane, a 131 seater, as the other 105 or 115 seater has loads of 90% right now. I can't find a link but search it in the news, it's there. No mention of canceling myrtle beach service though.

Does anyone have any pictures of the aircraft they use or interior?

Thanks.

I'm curious, are they using CXP and if so, what MD-82 are they using on these flights?
