InterstateJet Out Of ATL

Fri Jun 13, 2003 10:43 am

Looks like good old InterstateJet is selling seats on Pace Airlines routes out of ATL to CLT, SDF, MSY, and a few others...first time I've seen this...check it out at http://www.flyijet.com.

That folks is what you called one messed up route map!

What are they trying to do that's what I wanna know....weird, weird, weird.

Well you know Pace is the parent company of Hooters Air!

ABE is another destination from ATL...they were offering super cheap fares from there...something along the lines of around $35 one way as an introductory bargain...I have no idea what they are at now...

Greg,
I saw ABE-ATL advertised for $29.99 one way on one of their commecials several weeks ago. I haven't seen any commercials though lately for them around here.

What exactly is InterstateJet trying to do? The routes out of Atlanta basically suck frequency wise so they aren't aiming to be a new lowco business pax airline...and they aren't flying to any leisure cities from ATL...whats the logic?

They are also flying ABE-LAX and ABE-SWF, which really seems like an oddball route to me...Im just as puzzled too Tony...

Just to clear up the mess with Allentown:
They planned to fly ATL-ABE with the 737-300 but quickly scrapped that route. Fares were advertised as $29 one way to start.

The ABE-SWF,ABE-LAX and ABE-LAS routes are all about a month old using Transmeridian 757s. Yesterday is was announced that ABE-LAX is being dropped because they apparently don't have enough crews for the 757s on the route. ABE-LAS will continue twice a week but will drop down to a 727. So thats the sum up of what IJet has in store for ABE.

If you go to vacationexpress.com, you'll see the exact same flights out of ATL. Must be some sort of marketing alliance type deal. Honestly, I can't say this is the smartest move really.

MSYtristar is pretty much right. Interstate jet has the rights to sell any seats that aren't used by Vacation Express.

Who is vacationing in Atlanta from Louisville? Any word on how they are doing financially? I can't imagine their operations being anything close to a cashcow...
