They are waiting to recieve up to 3 new FD 328Jets (they have 2 now) Also Do some searches as there has been some good posts/talk about this airline in the past month.

Their COS service is a little slow, but others are doing okay. They also codeshared with Rio Grande Air out of ABQ for winter ski season destinations. I've flown them once and they are fine, great little jets too.

I can only speak about the fleet: four additional FD 328JET are due for delivery between March and June as far as I know, increasing the fleet to 6 frames. About additional destinations I´ve no ideas.

The airline has ordered 4 328JETS and Flying-Tiger is correct on the delivery dates. They will receive a mix of new and used frames, one of the used frames will be an ex-Shell Petroleum aircraft.

opps 4 then, their gate rep told me 3, but I see on their website it is four.

They continue to advertise in OKC big time, and are now sponsoring events.

THe morning donuts on the flights are outstanding  Big grin
