Today on Facebook G4 posted "We've got some big news coming next week, stay tuned..." on their wall.

Any speculations on what this "big news" is gonna be, Hawaii?

Maybe they are gonna take some MD-80s off AA's hands  . to me that would be big news but I don't know if they would tell everyone else that it is "big news"

Anyone have any speculations?

Either Hawaii, new mainland 757 routes, or something to do with AZA because of NK starting up service there soon. That is my guess

Last friday a Thomson 752 G-BYAO was ferried from back from Norwich to Gatwick in the Allegiant colours, it's new reg is N905NV. And on sunday (also that day G-BYAO done some test flights) another ex Thomson 752 G-BYAP was ferried from Abu Dhabi to Norwich to be painted up in to Allegiant coulours, this bird will become N906NV.

So im guessing these aircraft will be used for the Hawaii route. That's all I see for now, any more info and i'll make sure it posted.

Interesting so they are getting ex Thomson and American 757's. Will they be getting any ones from any other airlines?

Maybe AA is having a 'buy one - get one free' sale; Buy a 757, get an MD80 free!

How many would this make in total? Could this mean that they would be building bigger routes to Hawai'i? I know that they continue to grow IWA.

Dot they have two are three 757 in G4 colors right now? Sorry, I cannot remember right now.

If they did anything like that I could see them try LGW. Sun Country does well with the 738 coming all the way here from MSP. Could also see them going to ORY, I hope G4 does go to Europe sometime in the future.

Sounds like Hawaii to me. The only question is, what routes will they go for? I'm sure they'll link Hawaii with BLI, EUG, FAT, perhaps also MRY, SCK, MFR, PSC and SMX. Maybe they'll even do stuff like BIL, MSO, and COS.

I'm wondering if they'll link Hawaii with LAS and AZA, as apparently both those markets are a bit too far from Hawaii for the WN and AS 738s. But given strong competition from US, HA, and various one-stop options they probably won't. For those reasons, I'd say LAX, OAK, and SAN are completely out of the question.

I'm also wondering which airports in Hawaii they will serve. HNL would be a given, but I think they could pull off service to the outer islands too.

In any case, this will be exciting to watch!

Right now I know for sure 100% that at least 2 757's are in Allegiant colours N905NV (ex G-BYAO) and N906NV (G-BYAP) which are both in the UK at the moment.

I didn't catch the tail number but there is at least one that AAY is actually operating out of LAS. I saw it depart LAS in the early evening 2 weeks ago.

Just had a quick check and yes they are only using 1 757 at the moment, the reg is N902NV which is another ex Thomson bird (G-BYAE). So yep you saw N902NV 2 weeks ago.

I wouldn't be so sure of G4 leaving DSM. WN and G4 coexist peacefully at GSP.

LAX sounds like a given, but I wouldn't be surprised if the other one is MYR.

Both Thomson and AA use Rolls-Royce engines on their wingletted 752s, so I would suspect that any additional 752s in the G4 fleet would have winglets and RR engines.

Either Hawaii, new mainland 757 routes, or something to do with AZA because of NK starting up service there soon. That is my guess

I'm willing to bet on a bunch of new mainland routes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think G4 can sell tickets for Hawaii until they get ETOPS approval.



I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.

Would love to see additional 757 domestic service to expand their LAS out east, like towards YNG!

Anyways I anticipate service to Hawaii... Not sure Allegiant has ever touted a "major announcement" on their Facebook like this.
