Air Tickets to Be Gifts in Palmdale
No More Desert Drive Scenic Builds Market for Vegas Flights
I also want to apologize for posting the entire article in the original thread.

Back in the mid-80's, while I was working for the L.A. County Aviation Division (we owned and operated Fox Field in Lancaster, among others), we had service at Fox from Desert Sun Airlines, who served the airport with Navajo's and Beech 99's. During that period, TWExpress was operating out of PMD with Twin Otters. Ahh, the good old days.

A WN business model with $49 one way fares would attract a whole lot more passengers, including those outside the Palmdale area (but still in LA County).
|Quoting Latinplane (Reply 5):|
The best thing for Palmdale to do is to actually spend the money to advertise the flights on billboards, buses, newspapers. It's costly, but effective and can actually save the flights from disappearing. Otherwise, don't bet any other feeder carrier for a mainline to come around knocking o on your door for the next five years.
I'm actually very temped to fly out of PMD. Interestingly enough, I live about 15 mins away from Downtown L.A. I have never flown on a prop and I'm interested in flying on a Beech 1900D. I asked my friend and he said he was up to it. He doesn't care about Aviation, but he likes Vegas. So, I just might support the service. If only they flew on Saturdays... Darn it!
