Is the service to MCO a way of keeping Allegiant out of the market? MDT seems like the size of market Allegiant would try and make a go of with MDT-SFB service. So FL opens the door in MDT with a daily leisure run and then when the time is right at a future date, do we see ATL flights start?

Especially great news when all the airlines are cutting back. We may have lost PIT service, as well as all AE service to ORD and DFW, but then pick up 3x daily to EWR and 1x daily to MCO. Excellent news for MDT. Hopefully we have ATL service in the near future so we can connect to the rest of the FL network.

I read the article in the paper today (Patriot News). I find it funny that the boscov's travel agent didn't seem very confident about this new service. Why not? We can easily support a daily flight, especially if HIA markets this well, and the fares are good. The paper did say that web fare was $208 r/t out of MDT and BWI on WN was $266. Ever since TMA went bankrupt the only service offered direct was Boscov's WN charter(hmmmm...) and Saturday US service which ended a few years ago. I might just have to go to Orlando for my honeymoon

I just purchased two roundtrip tickets for my honeymoon!!! I did a little investigating and BWI and PHL had more expensive flights (tried WN,US, FL) direct, and only a few dollars cheaper with a connection. Way to go FL and MDT! Can't wait to fly the inaugural flight on the 20th.
