"We're going to be announcing another new small city
tomorrow! We can't spill the beans just yet, but we'd love to hear where you think it will be!"

My guess is Minot, ND

Minot just got 4 new flights 2 to DEN and 2 to SLC. Would be a huge increase if Allegiant entered also, maybe too much too soon

I was going to offer CKV on the TN-KY state-line, a FAR 139 regional airport adjacent to the world's third largest Army base and fifty or so miles from BNA. I believe a new terminal is being built.

I can tell you that I know they are announcing a new route to Vegas this week, so consider the aircraft range.

Maybe LAF or HUF? Both currently lack commercial air service, and G4 would be a good way to relaunch service.

Start with SFB or MCO and go from there.

But I don't think G4 would want to be responsible for costs relating to being only carrier there serving a particular airport.

But then again, SCK is one they do. If they incur any costs there IDK. San Joaquin County probably absorbs a lot of it.

I'll guess (and hope!) St. Cloud, MN to SFB or LAS. After the terminal renovation they did they deserve some airline service!

Huh? LRU has a part 139 certificate...and has maintained it since Mesa Airlines left in 2000   They even upgraded Runway 12/30 (the ILS runway) to support higher axle loads recently. There is a passenger terminal...

And who would pay for the TSA, air conditioning, power,etc. I bet they don't keep the terminal in full operation when nothing is going on. Hack,they can't even get NMSU to use their airport, correct? Of course, NMSU may as well stay home and forfeit the football games anyway.  

With ELP right nearby, I doubt LRU will regain any sched service ever.

Is the terminal home to anything else, such as airport offices,etc? Or is it a stand alone building?

So given their current strategy, that pretty much rules out anything east of the Mississippi River. FAT, do you at least know the time zone of the new city?

There was a meeting today at TOL, perhaps our Port Authority leadership actually made something happen here? Since it's an airline that doesn't pay the landing fees or usage charges as the legacy airlines here, anything is possible....

Central Time Zone.

Wow! We're really getting some great guesses on what new small city you think we're going to announce tomorrow! Here's a clue: The city we're going to announce is located somewhere in the Central Time Zone.3 hours ago

Saying they can't wait to spill the beans, I'd say it's in a large bean producing state. By doing some research, the largest bean areas in central time zone are western iowa, southwest minnesota, eastern nebraska, and most of Illinois.

My guess based off of this is Sioux City. The middle of the most dense bean producing area in the US.

Pierre is not in a bean producing area.

Well then I stand by my original guess: Minot, ND If not Minot, then either Sioux City or Waterloo


25 BMI727 : Do you think Allegiant would try that even with the amount of service WN has on OMA-LAS?
26 CBPhoto : Mankato MN?? Has a small University their, might be enough for a Vegas flight a few times a week!
27 Post contains images FATFlyer : There are many different types of beans and a number of cities that claim to be a bean capital. I can think of a couple in the Central Time Zone.
28 Airport : There's Lewiston, ID; the lentil bean capital of the world, lol, but I don't know what the market's like between LWS-LAS. Cheers, Anthony/Airport
29 FATFlyer : Central Time Zone, remember?
30 Post contains links and images KELPkid : Yep, the terminal at LRU also houses the airport offices...Here's a photo of it (right behind the "pole guard" F-100 Super Sabre!) View Large View Me
31 Airport : Whoops! Missed that one, my apologies. Cheers, Anthony/Airport
32 lv : I second that idea... as I mentioned when they added MLI Did I miss something?
33 jamake1 : I am thinking that perhaps it's a destination in Texas.
34 mccarranmgr : LAS-TOL is to be one of the temporay proving run routes for the 757s, until they move to Hawaii service in may of next year.
35 Post contains links jetMARC : Press release on Allegiant's site says Minot... Minot Press Release
36 qcflyer : I seriously doubt that it's ALO. They already have service to Vegas from CID, and MLI. I guess to venture that ALO would only cannibalize CID even mor
37 Post contains links joeljack : http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Allegi...op-prnews-1348485612.html?x=0&.v=1 It's Minot. They should have said spill the wheat or spill the oil inste

39 mtnwest1979 : LOL, I wasn't very clear typing, I meant the NMSU football team. They go from ELP, right? In that case, it wouldn't be much of a cost then to utilize
40 ANITIX87 : Or you just read into it wayyyyy too much. Minot doesn't seem like the best most promising destination to announce with the recent attention it's got
41 FATFlyer : Allegiant does not offer or sell connections. And flights are less than daily (Minot is only going to be Monday/Friday) so connections are pretty imp
42 flyinryan99 : 1st - I'll believe it when I see it. 2nd - Keyword is temporary! I would assume something like December through spring?
43 FWAERJ : Is FWA one of the others?
44 CYQL : Allegiant is targeting Canadian's from southern Saskatchewan and south western Manitoba. Minot is a major destination for cross border shopping. It is
45 rampart : Especially with the recent US(HP) pull out, COS does very well for Allegiant, recently adding Phoenix/Mesa and Long Beach to the original LAS destina
46 93Sierra : Does that mean that after G4 sees the numbers at Minot, will they probably add AZA/IWA ( Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport)? Good luck
