FL Starts Two New Short Routes

Fri Jul 07, 2006 6:06 am

I see FL has started two new short routes.

Boston to Rochester

and

Tampa to Biloxi

Going for the serious fuel savings on a flight?
Indy = Indianapolis and not Independence Air

CASM on a jet on such a short flight would be huge....
You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!

Yup, flight 1901 TPA-GPT is complete. Flight 1902 GPT-TPA is inflight as we speak/type.

I think TPA-GPT is just resuming after being suspended in the aftermath of Katrina.

Yes that is absolutely correct. The 1X daily route ran for a while before Katrina unfortunately damaged this community. Good luck to FL and GPT...this community needs some good things to happen!

Good to see them re-start Tampa-Gulfport. Fort Lauderdale-Gulfport will also be resuming in August. The flights actually do pretty well. Floridians love the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a quick vacation get away.
