We currently have plans to expand our fleet by 22 aircraft until 2006.
10 A320 A/C will be purchased through Airbus
7 A319 A/C will be purchased through Airbus
4-5 more will be leased and/or bought, to be decided later.
The aircraft are due for delivery next year, most likely towards the latter end of 2005. Rumor has it that we are looking for 757 A/C right now, since our 13 757's are pretty heavily utilized. With our 6-8 percent expansion for next year, I can almost assure that there will be some sort of a leasing deal struck, since we won't be able to expand with these Airbus-ordered planes only being delivered toward the latter part of '05.
As for upcoming special themes, I don't think that any new ones can be anticipated, I don't think it's a high priority right now, considering Ohio One is still painted in its colors, despite our CMH
closure in 2002. The Suns plane was also repainted when the Suns contract went to WN
