The First Pair Of Flights By Hooters Air

Mon Mar 03, 2003 11:38 pm

The first pair of flights by Hooters Air will launch March 6 when a VIP flight leaves Myrtle Beach, S.C., to pick up the first paying customers on a flight from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport back to Myrtle Beach. There'll be chicken wings, cake and plenty of tight orange sweaters for the send-off. "We aim to bring the fun back to flying," said Hooters owner Robert Brooks...

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to pick up on that. Are all their departures to leave in pairs?

Also interesting is that they only have a pair of planes.

Also interesting that they will have buffalo wings on their sendoff. I beleive I read an article yesterday in one of the airline magazines which said that buffalo wings don't do well in flight and would not be offered.


In either case, its a sad commentary on values and on how men are so easily controlled.

It's probably because buffalo wings are a sort of macho type food. It's easy to picture a bunch of guys eating them while watching a football game and scarfing brewskis. Much tougher to imagine buffalo wings at a ladies' garden club luncheon.

No way, I can totally see ladies and a garden club luncheon eating buffalo wings while arguing heatedly about different gardening techniques...finally leading into an all out no-holds-barred-brawl! Buffalo wings and tea everywhere!

Will those flights be cleared 'for' take off or cleared 'to' take off?

What buffalo wings will they have there?

The mild, hot or 3 Mile Island?

I think they should serve their wings on board. Hooters has the best wings. For furthur flights they should serve their giant burgers.

When are these guys coming to Detroit?

I wouldn't mind flying on them. For once I could get some good food and good looking flight attendants.

Don't confuse the FA's with the Hooters girls. Three FA's (male/female, young/old) and two "embassadors" (Hooters girls).

Well, I wonder what the callsign will be "Hot Ones 392 cleared for takeoff"
-Transaero Boeing 737-200

HOOTERS just doesn't makes sense. Hooters 2920 cleared to land American 23 : What?
This is pretty irrelevant, but it's sort of funny, that I was talking to an Aeroflot F/A and the only American airlines she knew of was Delta!!!  Smile)
-Transaero Boeing 737-200 What will the abbreaviation be, maybe OO will be the airline code.
What now?

Once again, I'm disappointed by the minds of those of you who think Hooters is some kind of strip club. I won't go any further than that except to say GRRRRR!!!!

Actually, if you want (and you think our values are so base), there is a company that now operates MIA-CUN charters that are--GET THIS!!!--NUDE!!!

If I get any more info on it, I'll let you know. Saw it on FNC's "O'Reilly Factor." So if you want to get a "rise" out of a "pair", you might want to think about that...

Then again, your gram'ma could be on that one!! :^P

Cheers!

UN-B732,

Hooters Air will not be using Hooters as their callsign, nor will it have its own airline code.

The flight are operated by PACE Airlines, by PACE Employees. Their callsign will be PACE.

The routes until March 20th will be only MYR-ATL-MYR. After Mar 20th, it'll be MYR-ATL-EWR-ATL-MYR. And then a direct EWR from MYR will start up on April 6th.

Hooters Air will not be using Hooters as their callsign, nor will it have its own airline code.

Maybe it will be JUGGS or TUBES or RACK or KNOCKERS

They need to do their aircraft registrations like this.

N36C
N38D
N40DD
N42E
N44EE

and on and on

HlywdCatft,

I already mentioned...the Hooters callsign will be PACE.

It will not be Juggs, Tubes, Rack or Knockers.

Personally, I feel that would be inappropriate on the radio.

The registrations by the way are

N252TR
N250TR

and rumor has it, N249TR will join the ranks soon.

I just wanted to tell everyone about the flights on Hooters Air. My wife and I flew up from Atlanta to Myrtle Beach on the first revenue flight on March 6th. There was only 6 paying passengers and a plane load of VIPs. It was our 17th wedding anniversary and they treated us like VIPs !! The flight boarded in Atlanta at concourse B gate 17 ( right in the middle of Delta land ). Hooters was serving up their famous wings, celery and carrot sticks and cake. We boarding ontime but the flight was about 5 minutes late getting away from the gate. But if you know Atlanta that is nothing ! It was really kind of cool seeing the ramp crews looking at our plane as it taxied to the active. People were taking a second look to make sure what they were looking at.
Once the aircraft tookoff everyone on board started clapping. The flight was a quick 1 hour flying time from Atlanta. The CEO of Hooters and the President of Hooters Air were seating right in front of us and they were extremely nice to my wife and I. The flight was a little bumpy, weather wise, but the flight attendants handled it like the PROS they are !!. We did have to ambassadors on board with us. They were dressed in their Hooters uniforms. The girls greeted everyone when they come aboard. They held a little trivia game for prizes during the flight.
We arrived in Myrtle Beach on schedule and as we deplaned everyone was handed a $ 5.00 gift card for use at any Hooters restaurant. Our flight back to Atlanta this morning went off without a hitch. We had 19 passengers on the flight and once everyone on was they closed the door and we departed about 5 minutes early. You just have to love a smaller airport. The flight back to Atlanta was 1 hour 3 minutes in duration. The ambassadors again held a trivia game and I won a Hooters Air t-shirt ! Guess all those years going to Hooters finally paid off  Smile/happy/getting dizzy !!!
I took some pictures with my new digital camera and I will post them as soon as I can get my computer to accept the download. Guess I am doing something wrong.. Who knows... But just as soon as I figure it out I will get them online for everyone to see.

Sorry this was a long post but I wanted everyone to know what a great time we had !!
