Any word on the status of Allegiant's 757's and the planned cities to be served with their new Hawaii service?

Allegiant does not expect to start operating them until eraly 2011. I'm hoping more info is provided in the earnings conference call later this month, 3 months ago the guidance was they awee still in the process of getting government approval to operate the type. Their planned schedule then was an OK from the FAA on manuals for 757s in late Q3/early Q4 followed by employee training and proving runs

In terms of cities, they still say no existing competition on planned routes, that same statement is in the most recent presentations they have given to investors last month. So it appears the plan is still to operate from secondary mainland airports.

Allegiant currently says 2 of the 757s will enter service in 2011, 2 in 2012, and 2 in 2013. So I expect the first year will likely start with something like 3 to 6 cities to Hawaii.

I am going to make a prediction. The 757s will enter service in 2011, but they won't fly to Hawaii initially - as ETOPs will take them longer to obtain than currently planned (reference America West and Alaska). Hawaii no earlier than Summer 2011.

- They have yet to be delivered so not really possible at this stage.

I'm not sure we have found the source of the birds yet, I wonder, could they be former Finnair machines? - the time line works as they come off lease.........

Allegiant did not disclose the operator they are buying from other that to say it was a European airline (all from the same source).

But they did disclose the following:
**RB211-535E4 engines (I think that eliminates Finnair)
**Average age of the 6 aircraft is 17 years old
**Average number of cycles is 19,000 as of June 2009

A little more 757 info G4 recently revealed in presentations:
**Allegiant will reconfigure them to 215 seats
**Expect an average in-service cost of $14 million per 757 (the MDs are currently a $4 million in-service cost)

They also are reporting the current G4 customer base demographics as:
**Mean income over $104,000/year
**Mean age of 49
**84% of passengers own their home
**73% of passengers are married
**53% of passengers are professional/managerial/clerical job holders

Those look like favorable demographics for Allegiant to base Hawaii packages around.

I believe to earn ETOPS you have to demonstrate compliance for upwards of 6 months, if not longer. So yes, Allegiant has mentioned that these -57's will be doing some non-Hawaii runs out of the box. But they should also be flying trial runs well before the schedule service begins.

Is there any indication as yet whether G4 will operate to HNL only, to another airport (KOA, OGG etc.?) only, or to a variety based on the demand from the mainland? Also, any possibility that there could be ANC during the summer?

Second on that!!

Perhaps the first 2 birds might be in service in time for the holiday football bowl charters?

What would be the range (westbound) on these birds?

I'd suggest some former hubs might see this hawaii service..such as STL, MCI...as well as cities like DSM, and others that have those type of demographics.

You can piggy back off some else's authorized ETOPS program. That is what Hawaiian did with its 767 fleet from day 1.

Once G4 start flying to Hawaii, Australians might fly them more often. Eg. Australians may have enough frequent flyer points/miles to get from Australia to HNL but not enough to mainland.

(am aware of quite a few Australians who fly Allegiant especially to ports in Colorado in winter from LAX & LAS)

Same could also apply to US citizens wanting to go to Australia, but who might like a stop in Hawaii.

All of 57's are currently scheduled to touch LAS before going into Hawaii service. They are to run service upgrades when passenger counts warrant it. We are expecting the first ones next month.

I'd be interested to hear how that went...because my friends at NW and AS didn't have it nearly that easy. It probably helped that HA previously flew islands-mainland even though they were 3-holers? AS had to run months on end of proving with the 738 to get ETOPS.

They partnered with Delta for that.

The Airbus are one step further ... they are on the Delta Maintenance program.

Yes when HA went from the DC-10 to the 767, it was based on Delta's ETOPS program and experience to allow them to fly to the mainland from day one. HA had also pursued a deal with AA (HA had close dealing with AA as DC-10 fleet was mostly ex AA birds with AA still providing support, plus lots of IT stuff(Sabre)), but at the end they made a deal with DL instead.

As 7673Mech states for the A330 is indeed even one step forward with the HA birds being incorporated into the Delta maintenance program as if they were DL birds.

So this would be COS/LAS/Hawaii ?

Omni Air Int used to do or still does regular HNL/LAS charters using DC10's or 757's.

Would the HNL/LAS be taking over this possibly from Omni perhaps ?
