First Legacy/Oneida and now this? First I've heard of this airline. Granted we need more options (especially low-fare) here in Central New York- most of my friends drive to ALB or ROC to get on Southwest or AirTran- I actually only know one person who's tried JetBlue out of SYR- but I doubt the market exists for 2 start-ups plus these established carriers. Also would you mind posting the link to the article? Thanks.

Critical point: as far as I´ve understood those two articles they mostly rely on the hypothesis that this new shopping center will create enough demand for them to launch operations. But as far as I see this is still in the planning phase...
Still, IF they get airborne used B712s make more sense then new ones (60+~8 mio US-$ are only good for a max of three frames). Question: who is currently big in Syracuse who could fell pi*****?

I first heard about Northern in 97 while on aroad trip to UCA. What I've been told is they are a sound group, unlike the dreamers at Legacy. Trying to find the money is nearly impossible in CNY. The economy there is terrible and has been for ever.
