I noticed a few guesses about G4
potential cities on other threads so I thought Rick and the rest of the Allegiant gang might enjoy a thread about our collective guesses of potential cities. Allegiant is holding an employee party tonight so they probably won't see this for a day or 2.
Allegiant will receive a new aircraft this week and another on Jan 15 so we know several new cities are coming soon.
I thought I'd use some info from Harrahs annual survey of American Gamblers. Download at:
Pages 26-27 listed the 55 cities that generate over 1 million annual trips to all gambling locations. It doesn't mean they are good destinations for LAS
, both BTR
appear on this list and they didn't turn out as good Allegiant cities. ( I guess RDD
is more of a Reno city
But there are a few other cities on this list where gambling is popular but LAS
service is lacking. So my SWAG guesses for Allegiant in 2005 are (in no particular order):
** Jackson MS
** Grand Rapids
** Traverse City
