I just noticed a little comment in this article that raised my eyebrows.

Allegiant is planning to increase its PIE base from 2 aircraft to 4 in the spring. This would probably be accomplished by placing 2 of the 6 aircraft they already have coming for next year at PIE.

Some of the current routes will see frequency increases, particularly during peak periods.

But my guess we will see additional new routes added out of PIE.

So lets see what guesses people can come up with.

I would love to see LAN get some more frequency, especially from March-Mid-April for spring break.

With Plattsburgh starting...is there that high of a demand for all of the routes they will fly. G4 had been cutting down on stage lengths, but they seemed to be an exception.

FATFlyer, with oil making its way down, do you think G4 will resume some of the LAS routes that were cut from the midwest and maybe see if FLL and IWA can be supported from those markets?

I don't think the route planners know what they are doing at G4. The go into a city and then pull out just as fast. Whats up with that.

If the bookings aren't there, G4 doesn't stick around long. It may seem a bit irrational, but the G4 model doesn't really allow for many (if any) bum routes. Losers are dropped and they move on to hopefully greener pastures.

Because they expect a route to be profitable faster than other airlines. If it isn't its gone. You'd rather they stay for a year or more and lose a lot of money before they cancel it like other airlines??  confused 

Lots of their routes have been operated for years, but you never comment on that. Who would have thought they would keep operating at YNG or FNL or SCK or other small cities. Sounds like those were good choices.

You never have anything postive to say about Allegiant. Some of the route planners I know very well, and have been in this industry a very long time. They know what they are doing, and our profits speak to that. If a route, regardless of load factor, isn't profitable (TOL-LAS for example) we will pull it.

You keep saying how we go into cities and pull out just as fast, but you never mention the cities we have been in for years. Some examples include: BLI-LAS service started in 2004 and has since grown to include RNO, PSP, SAN, SFO, and IWA. SMX-LAS service started in 2005, and DLH-LAS service started in 2005.
