Fortune magazine just ranked Allegiant at #25 on its 2010 list of the 100 Fastest-growing companies. The ranking methodology looks at revenue growth rate, EPS growth rate, and three-year annualized total return for the period ended June 30, 2010.

This new ranking follows on Allegiant being ranked # 1 among low-cost carriers in Aviation Week's 2010 Top Performing Airline study

Unlike other carriers...their bread and butter business model hasn't matured yet...
They can still do a lot more

I just wished G4 would serve more destinations to compete with Southwest. Of course, not competing with Southwest (and serving smaller markets) got them this far in the first place, so I doubt that will ever happen.

They do compete with WN, by bringing pax that used to fly WN out of the large airports back to the small/midsize airports.

I'm surprised WN hasn't realized this yet.

Realizing it and being able to do something about it are two different things.

Very true. The one thing I keep wondering is if/when other carriers might decide to follow G4's lead with these really small/underserved markets in the future.

Don't tell AirTran. They're already doing it.

I thought they were pulling back from some of these, or is it just the spat with DL over MLI?

Just MLI. Even then, MCO will remain from MLI, and RSW will be added.

Both Southwest and Allegiant continue to tinker with with schedule as markets shift. Allegiant pulls a city when it does not develope and bets on another. WN increases and reduces flights depending on the demand and season. Unlike the trunk airlines that want to serve everywhere despite lack of profits, both WN and G4 go for the gold.

I wouldn't say WN is doing it any differently than every other airline in the US, they seem to have the same mentality of needing service to as many cities as possible. It's a completely different business model than G4, and yes while it works for them it's not as if WN holds some magical advantage over other carriers.
