Vision Airlines has announced two daily flights from Atlanta to Louisville on 32-seat Dornier 328 turboprops. It will be interesting to see how this works out.

Press Release:
Suwanee, GA - (October 7, 2010) - Vision Airlines announces that it is expanding into regularly-scheduled commercial passenger service with new low-fare, nonstop flights between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Louisville International Airport (SDF) beginning December 13, 2010. Fares start as low as $99. Seats are now on sale at www.VisionAirlines.com or through the company’s toll-free telephone reservations center at 877-FLY-A-JET (877-859-2538)

I know. Not well. Why do they think they will have a snowball's chance against DL?

Well, I wish them luck. I suppose that will be a shuttle run for the CEO.. but hopefully their next flights will make a little more sense.. they should not be trying to use ATL as a hub (which hopefully, they aren't)..

I guess I will just have to wait and see what their next plan will be.. although they did hint to Florida service.. uhmm.. again, I would beg someone to change their mind and look at some of mid-tier P2P markets that are unserved.. OR conversely, look at some small tier markets that could actually use some P2P to mid and large tier markets.. a bunch of non-stop, non-connecting routes might actually work..

How about Athens, GA to JAX or CHA to STL or ILN to EWR or something similar.. there are possibilities to try..



Aiming High and going far..

The heck with markets that actually have traffic, crank up CHA-STL..

Yeah.. why start flights on markets where there will be little inroads and you will be fighting a losing battle. Sure, why don't I go up against 2 different airlines with huge amounts of daily flights while using 2 daily and turboprops.. sure.. why not just put their hat in on NYC-DCA also?

Yeah.. I would have to say that if they think they are going to be successfully on fully established routes with high frequency with larger aircraft by using their minimal frequency turboprops, they will get reality smacked in their face pretty hard. But, like Allegiant, if they go for underutlized, underserved markets and make even a tiny profit they will be doing very well.

So I take your crank up CHA-STL and salute it..

It appears this is the airline's only route, correct? Seems like a really odd choice..
