The Youngstown airport is been taking pledges in an effort to acquire air service to LAS. Their goal was $5,000,000. To date they have $5,032,535 from 194 businesses/individuals. This is quite an accomplishment in this economy. It shows the determination of local fliers to get service to the city they most likely support in a recent survey.

Late last month this local report spells more about the possible service and the fact that both Frontier and Allegiant are interested in being the provider. Since this report is from late last month it has a lesser total in fund raising pledges then it is at the current time.

Other than the PBG service, YNG would be G4's longest flight from LAS. Keep in mind that PBG pulls from YUL, which tends to be expensive to LAS, or anywhere crossborder for that matter. As another poster mentioned, YNG doesn't have the same pull from CLE/PIT due to the already reasonable fares to LAS there. I am thinking it is too far for an MD80 to do it economically, and too small of a market for a 757. Maybe they will reconsider once more A319s come onboard, however.

Great news that YNG has raised $5 mil in a travel bank. However, these pledges are mostly from businesses and are going to be used for a LAS flight? To me that seems like a complete misuse of funds. If business are pledging then shouldn't they direct the funds to a network carrier that businesses will actually use?

If G4 bases some Airbuses at LAS, I think we could see significant growth to LAS from farther east, and I think that YNG would be prime for that, as it's one of G4's most successful cities.

G4 could even fill in a few other midwestern cities from LAS with the Mad Dogs, like FWA and TOL (both served in the past with no performance issues).



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

Quoting FWAERJ (Reply 3):

Agreed. We'll could very well see those longer flights that just suffered because of the economics of the Mad Dogs but not because of pax loads.
