How about this fantasy airline:

Low fare airline (like Jetblue) based at Dayton, Ohio. This has several advantages. Dayton has free gates, and is very close to two major Ohio cities (Cincinnati and Columbus). so it could use the Southwest effect to draw from them. Fly using 737-700s to Chicago Midway, Detroit, and Newark (New York). Add some more cities like Tampa, Indianapolis, Seattle etc. and build up some customer loyalty. How does that sound?

What's in Dayton? Dayton has an airport?

Yes-Dayton has an airport  Big grin . Dayton is the headquarters of quite a few US companies. I have a feeling you do not live in the Good Ol' USA.

Airbusluver,

On the contrary, my username should reveal where I'm from. I'm just giving you a hard time about Dayton. What's the airscene like in Dayton? I imagine a lot of Comair planes and NW DC-9s.
Actually, I currently live in a place that is only served by US Airways Express Dash 8s. Pretty pathetic.

I have my doubts that a Dayton-hubbed airline would work. Don't Delta & Continental & America West have Ohio sown up?

Piedmont used to have a hub at Dayton-and did extremely well at it. It was shut down by US Airways at the merger because it was to close geographically to their then-hub at Indianapolis.

US Airways killed PSA as well, which was headquartered in San Diego. And later US Airways abandoned California in-state service, and sold off a lot of the fleet. Bloody waste.

America West is far from having Ohio sewn up. It'd have to be CO and DL that have Ohio.

Here's mine:

A low fare, all business-class airline based out of Washington, D.C., called Capital Airways. They operate 737-800s from Dulles to major cities like Boston, New York, Detroit, Chicago, Dallas and Houston, Atlanta, New Orleans, Denver, San Fran., L.A., Seattle, San Diego. My airline would have hubs in IAD, DFW, SFO, and SEA.

This would be a *special* business airline, which flies for business travelers only;could be leased by corporations; and have an all business-class interior, as I have mentioned before.

We would also operate a few 744s and 777s for international operations.  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

I'm not from Dayton (I've only been there once) and I don't even really like Dayton, but they do have quite an impressive aviation heritage. For starters, Orville and Wilbur Wright were born in Dayton and their old bicycle shop is now part of a historical park. Wright-Patterson Air Force base is located there as well as a giant USAF museum. Also located in Dayton: The National Aviation Hall of Fame. In addition, they have large Air Show every year in Dayton, which attracts a lot of interest.

Dayton International Airport is serviced by 12 airlines: Air Canada, AirTran, American, ATA, ComAir, Continental Express, Delta, Northwest, Midwest Express, TWA, United and US Airways.

Finally, Emery Worldwide calls Dayton their home. Believe me, every night, in the wee hours of the morning, their ramp is a flurry of activity. During my lone visit (via a big ugly freighter), I chose not to wander too far from the aircraft, lest I get run down by deceptively speedy forklift carrying a large pallet of cargo.



Patrick Bateman is my hero.

How about an all Yak42 carrier based in Decatur, IL? We could have nonstop service to Carbondale and Champaign.

Also, I dream about a Shreveport, LA based airline operating only concorde to Keflavik, with a few EMB-110 Banderiante's to Monroe, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles.

I think your kind of missing the point of Dayton. The fares would be low enough that it could act as an airport for Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus. It is close to all of those cities.
