You may be seeing more of that in the future. There's word that new hire flight crews have been told to expect a Sanford base in the coming months.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Allegiant had an MD-80 doing RNO-CMH-MDW yesterday.

I've heard rumors of DSM-SFB.

It never ceases to amaze me how a simple stop at a different airport causes a thread to be started. Let me give you the skinny.

Last week, we went empty to Punta Cana because they were having some kind of malaria scare. So we just brought people out. This week, after the scare, we took 150 people down there but of course, there was nobody to bring out. Since the aircraft was eventually going to come back to LAS, I decided to stop it in SFB so the crew could clear customs, and then repo back to LAS.

Port Columbus,
That was a charter for Harrahs in Reno.

Falcon,
I don't know where you heard that but you are correct.

Akjetblue,

Probably start with SFB-PIA, SFB-DSM, and maybe even SFB-CID.

One other thing guys. That flight information in the first post is inaccurate. The flight came out of Punta Cana(MDPC) not Puerto Plata(MDPP).

I think Allegiant would do great on those routes. I believe the Orlando area is towards the top O&D from those cities.

Iowaman,

My only question is will the market support those flights on a year round basis? LAS is a year round destination but Orlando? Just curious.

I think those markets will support year round flights. Allegiant has succeeded because they don't opperate their routes every day. Years back, Airtran flew DSM-MCO, but was unsuccessful. I don't remember how much frequency was offered, but I'm sure they flew it everyday and they weren't able to fill the planes. Allegiant of course is successful in vaction/leisure (for Iowans, anywhere warm is a vacation destination) markets, namely LAS, where people are looking for cheaper tickets instead of greater frequency, that way they are able to fly medium sized cities only on the peak days with reduced capacity and has been hugely successful for them. Granted Orlando is no Las Vegas, but it does have Disney World...  Big grin
(My name is not iowaman, but i wanted to respond to this one...sorry)

Dbo861,

Okay,

Thanks for the input. Hopefully, people will fly on Allegiant to SFB instead of going to MCO just for the difference in fares.
