Has G4 ever considered doing some limited scheduled service to Laughlin, like Sun Country and Morris Air had done in the past?

What is there in the Laughlin area apart from a casino?

I used to be an IFP based FA for G4 I believe we had a no compete clause with harrahs, we could not bring pax into IFP for hotels other than harrahs ( given allegiants model of hotel/air packages) so i am sure that is one, but, back in early 2001/2002 they did LAS-IFP flights that were sale to the FAT and COS pax, or any one else who wished to purchase them, but they were selling seats on a Repositioning flight that was back on the dc-9-31

One problem is the Harrahs contract.

Another problem is the Laughlin market itself.

Allegiant is built around the revenues from packages. Room prices at Laughlin are so low (even on weekends) that the commission would be low to Allegiant. Heck, hotel rooms at the casinos around Fresno cost more than rooms in Laughlin.  Wink

With few other revenue streams from show tickets, etc in Laughlin. I don't think it would fit the model right now.

Well, Laughlin/Bullhead City has the desert. You like the desert? Well, there it is!

But, really, if Laughlin isn't a true discretionary destination, what is? Anyone on business actually flying there? Which raises a further question, are there any truly discretionary travelers in America at this time, this the last week of January, 2009?

Wishing everyone in beautiful Davos a pleasant journey!
