Indy To Upgrade IAD-BOS?

Wed Dec 29, 2004 5:14 am


I was just reviewing the most recent time table for Independence Air. I noticed that they upgraded thier IAD-BOS RON.

It's shows the following upgrade:

Flt 30 21:40 23:19 IAD-BOS A319
Eff Dec 21

Flt 31 06:30 08:09 BOS-IAD A319
Eff Dec 22

Does anyone know if they upgraded this flt to the A319? It should have started a week or more ago, but there has been nothing on here about it.

Thanks for any info...

It is a A319, one flight a day, it is the RON flight into BOS. They are now also up to 5 flights a day to MCO.

Check http://www.flytecomm.com/cgi-bin/trackflight and select Boston on the menu, and all flights into Boston, including Indy flights. That will give you all the info you need.

Thanks,

Looks like DH is going from "the little airline that could" to "the little airline that can!"

Hope it works out for DH, sure would be nice to see the A319 on some other short haul routes!

I took them last month PIT-IAD-MCO, and it was a wonderful experience. I was impressed how everything seemed to flow so smoothly when I traveld with them, even though I was running late!

Keep up the good work DH!

I'd hate to be the crew that has to fly that plane in but yeah, it's in Apollo, one flight a day. I'd like to see two or three flights a day.

Could they possibly be planning to use this RON to perhaps fly a Florida flight down the road?

Either way, good for them. As a shareholder, I'm confident that Indy just bit off more than it could chew to start, and has fixed the problems.

Just curious,

Anyone think they might drop the A319 on the IAD-ORD run and go head to head with UA? I'm guessing there are a few people who have left UA and would be happy to see a bigger aircraft on that run...

Wouldn't mind seeing them use the A319 on more short haul routes, maybe IAD-ATL or IAD-JFK?

I'm sure there are a number of routes that they could add the A319 on but might be holding off until United makes a decision on the RFP. Of course I hope we keep the contract.

I could see Indy putting A319 service on flights to BOS, BDL, ATL, ORD, PWM during the high season.

They do need to back off of the RJ's, not a lot of people are willing to fly on an airline that is almost all RJ's. Look at JI, almost the same fleet make up, not a lot of passengers like the CRJ.
