Several months ago I saw a couple pictures of Allegiant's new 757s, I'm curious what their status is? I understand the ETOPS process takes awhile to be implemented, but weren't they going to use the aircraft on routes within the lower 48 during the interim? How many does Allegiant currently have? When will we see them enter service? Any other information would be much appreciated.

Also, where are these 757s being stored while we wait for them to enter service?

Didn't they lease a few of them to other airlines because they weren't completely ready for them? I'm sure someone here could confirm that. As far as numbers, I haven't heard much. Good luck on your investigation!

As far as I am aware, two are due on short term lease at Jet2 for the UK summer season.

I was really hoping G4 would capitalize on the process and use the 757s to try out a few routes that the MD80s don't have the legs for.

In their earnings conference call, Allegiant said they expect to do proving flights in May/June and assuming no problems have one of the 757s enter mainland service in late summer. They are not saying which routes (or charters) will see the aircraft used initially.

In the meantime, they supposedly have leased out three (not just two). One can be recalled at Allegiant's option anytime after Summer 2011 while the others run thru Summer 2012.

Interestingly, Allegiant expects to earn $15 to $18 million from the 3 leases thru Summer 2012. That is about the same dollar amount as they previously stated would be the in-service cost for one of the 757s. Basically thru the leases they will recover their costs of one of the 6 aircraft being bought.

Not too far off! I'm guessing BLI-HNL and LGB-HNL will be in the first round, maybe with MRY, SCK, EUG, or even SMX in the original mix. One plane should be able to cover 3-4 cities with with 1x weekly-2x weekly service to HNL.

It said specifically: mainland service. Not mainland-Hawaii service. G4 has stated before that Hawaii won't come until ETOPS certification, targeted for 2012.

I was hoping to see SFB-LAS since there really isn't a lot of Orlando-LAS flights right now.

As mentioned G4 will not start Hawaii until 2012 now.

And what you have something against Fresno?     I think FAT-HNL will start before EUG, MRY or SMX. Just the Fresno MSA (not including the other MSAs served by the airport) currently sends more people to Hawaii than those others. I think it will be hard for Allegiant to leave it out of the early cities.

We'll see. Some of the smaller markets outside the range of the MD80 may not be profitable on a 757. If you look at small cities that G4 and others have quit in the past: FWA, CAK, ROC, FNT, GRY, PBI, SWF, ABE, GSP, etc, I'm not sure G4 would want to invest money in either setting up a new station or a new route that they would have to end soon after in order to start Hawaii flights.

LAS is the ONLY way I see for G4 to grow a station like GSP. They already serve all their Florida makets from here. I'd think a weekly or 2x/week flight could do it with proper support (advertising, community involvement, etc).
