ATA has scheduled service trans-con. LGA
has started on a limited weekly schedule. PIE
is a scheduled route and of course all of the TZ HI
flights from SFO
. Word is out on European scheduled service within the next 1 1/2 years. Barring the addition of extended range a/c, ATA will be going its limits (non-stop). The L-1011 has been a great aircraft for ATA, but will not be used to start scheduled service. It is just a matter of time before TZ
places that order for 767, 777 or I will go out on a limb and say 7E7. ATA has positioned itself better than any other U.S. LCC to get in the long haul market.
