FL is not offering any MDT-ATL or MDT-BWI flights? Just MDT-MCO? Interesting.

I can see them doing MDT-ATL in the future but with BWI just 100 mile down the road I don't see them adding that route. I'd take a 717 to ATL over a CRJ on DL any day.

I saw that in the thread about them coming to CMH. I think it could be a good route for them to try. Heh, it was one of the routes I suggested earlier on!  laughing 

I'd be willing to bet that eventually this service either goes twice daily, or new service to ATL is added.

I am very glad for MDT. They got two new good things with FL's arrival. Lower fares, mainline equipment, and a new destination not served non-stop in a while, if ever...

Ok, that's at least 3 things then...

US served MDT-MCO just a two or three years ago.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Heh, I don't know why I don't remember that then... My bad...

Didn't US only offer Saturday-only MDT-MCO?

If FL wants to do anything meaningful in MDT, they need to add ATL-MDT. Otherwise, as typical, they are resigning themselves to discretionary leisure - spill traffic.

Plus Delta Express served MCO-MDT until around 2000 or so, 3x daily at one point.

Don't forget TransMeridian who flew MDT-Orlando (Sanford) back in their heyday.

MDT wanted AirTran service for the longest time. Good for them for finally landing it. Maybe this will lead to bigger and better things, such as the aforementioned ATL service.

I'm sure, though, that CMH would see an additional ATL frequency or two before FL gave up valuable gate space for an MDT flight out of there...

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  Wink

We can only hope that service to ATL is in the near future. I'd like to see more than one daily flight out of MDT on FL.

It will be nice to see the 717 everyday.

Seems like a large start-up cost just for one-daily flight. (It stays in MDT for less than 30 minutes) And yet they're trying to watch there expenses...

I'd imagine all ground handling will be outsourced.....

Damn! I bet that is the cheapest air fare by far at MDT!  Wow!  eyepopping

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.
