On the obscure airports (the ones Allegiant use   ) that don't have a mouse-over identification on A.net, it;s helpful to spell out the airport or city name. And since topic titles don't have mouseovers, spelling out would be good, too. Just suggesting, don't mean to nag, thanks!

I'm assuming this will be a Canadian draw, Montreal to Las Vegas, as I can't imagine enough market from little old Plattsburgh. I'm also therefore assuming that the border process is worth it??

I figured if you opened the link, it would be spelled out for you. Anyway, they limit you on how many characters you can use in the subject line. Even if I abbreviated Allegiant to G4, it still would'nt let me spell out Plattsburgh.

What aircraft will G4 use for this route? Seems a bit far for an MD80.

Will be the 757. We were told at the manager's conference last week to be watching for several announcements using the 757 on additional mainland flying

Confirmed- did a mock booking and the seat map is a 757.



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Maybe we could see the resumption of routes like GSP-LAS and FWA-LAS? Naturally, I'm hoping for the latter.

What surprises me is the fact that the plane overnights in PBG. I didn't think they RON'd at outstations.

The RON is due to block time, the crew wouldnt be legal to fly the return trip. This is circumvented on the Hawaii runs by scheduling 2 captains and a FO that rotate around every couple of hours on the way there and back. Not sure why they arent doing this same thing on the PBG runs. The way Hawaii is scheduled may change when the crew base in Hawaii opens.

There was speculation a couple years ago in a thread devoted to PBG that Allegiant would eventually run PBG-LAS when it got suitable, longer-range aircraft (it only had MD80s at the time of that older thread). Well, sure enough. It's fun to see the route come to fruition.

Maybe we could see MYR-LAS with the 757s, too? I really hope that the 757s and a319s help G4 build up their longer route network, such as east coast to LAS and AZA, and hopefully let us smaller-airport spotters get some 757s to see!

It is the only scheduled RON, several charters spend the night away from home.

I don't exactly understand that, either. LAS-PBG would work very well as a red-eye. But if they're not concerned about aircraft time (i.e. the fleet has slack), hotel rooms in PBG plus per diems are probably cheaper than the extra captain.

Supposedly there is some G4 shopping going on for more 757s (and more A319s). Combined with the first A319s entering service in 2Q 2013 we will likely see more of these longer domestic flights being added.

I figured a route like this would have waited for the 319's to come online.

How many 757's does G4 have now and how many more are on order? I saw 4 757's sitting on the ground yesterday at LAS and figured there were probably 1 or 2 more somewhere else in the system.

The 4 you saw are the only ones currently in the system. There are 2 more coming by the end of the year, or beginning of next.

Great news!

Perhaps they will come back to Newburgh, NY and offer service to LAS.

That makes sense since this route starts too early for the A319 fleet. I see PBG is a former AFB with a nearly 11,758 x 200' runway. I see PBG is marketed as "Montreal's U. S. Airport."

BTV gets a lot of Montreal traffic, too. Because it has far more airlines serving it.

Burlington, VT is a bigger city too. I can remember reading about how PeoplExpress flights to Newark drew a lot of Montreal passengers.

I'm surprised G4 won't entertain a Orlando/Sanford - Las Vegas flight using a 757.

However, if you count the NY and DC airports as one the difference is not that great. Seems like PBG has what airlines want right now and BTV does not...

Maybe I'll at least get to see one of those 757's on a diversion sometime. Even an A319 would be welcome.
