Alert On G4 Site-More SFB Flights To MCO Soon?

I was looking at vacation packages on the G4 website. When I looked for travel packages from FWA on the booking page, there was a "Travel Advisory" that Orlando flights departing to/from FWA will depart from SFB. Similar notices popped up on SBN and TOL. In the past, such types of notices only popped up when G4 was switching a city from SFB to MCO, and I didn't see such a notice on FWA, SBN, or TOL before today.

I'm wondering if G4 is programming their computers in advance for a mass switchover to MCO, or if this is just a simple alert to avoid confusion?

I wouldn't say mass switch over, but yeah I can see a few more flights moving to MCO.

do we ever see at a point in the future when all flights will be moved to MCO? Would it be cheaper to operate from one consolidated airport instead of two? I liked the ease and convenience of SFB, but it did seem far from the attractions of Orlando.

Quoting CIDflyer (Reply 2):

I see that point in the future. G4 is now a signatory airline at MCO, and if MCO throws up aggressive-enough incentives to move their SFB ops, I think G4 would take it. For G4, it's all about maintaining their profits... hence why routes are dropped if not enough complete vacation packages are sold, and why they left several airports, including ORH.

IMO, as G4 becomes even more successful, the competition will intensify on many more previously G4-exclusive routes from the Orlando area, and competitors will decide to add new routes from both SFB and MCO. Still, G4 has shown its willingness to fight. Also, if Direct Air grows SFB, I could see G4 flights from overlapping cities switching to MCO to gain a competitive advantage.
