Don't waste your time. They're a long-running internet-based fraud, formerly known as Oneida.

I would agree. The fact that they have such details as a corporate giving program (which in a start-up comes much later) shows they don't have their priorities straight. I also question SYR as a medium-range hub (I know, I know, Piedmont, Empire, etc.) and the fact that an RJ is too expensive for the intra-state service they propose.

Doug_or: That was Legend airlines, operating DC9s with 56 seats to the coasts from Love Field.

I spotted a help wanted ad in an aviation help wanted section for Legacy on 7/21. Looking for flight crews for DC-9s. Both pilots and flight attendants.

If you check out the website, it's a total ripoff of DELTA.COM...

Legend wasn't shut down for antenaas. They simply ran out of capital. AA was killing them with the competing service at Love Field.

It was too bad. They went bust and the terminal is empty.
