Does anybody have any info or even any links with response to Allegiant's huge southeast buildup and the PIE buildup and how loads are looking per market? How do the newer flights out west look as well, PSP-BLI is one that comes to mind?

The initial Kinston (ISO) flight was 100 out of 150 passengers.. of course, they were riding on $39 fares.. .

I hope ILM gets them. We almost had Delta conx service there once. Maybe Airtran will offer MCO service if we get them.

I doubt it. I don't see Allegiant doing much more Eastern NORTH Carolina expansion. They already have ISO and FAY. The only other option I could see is if they were to do Hickory or Winston-Salem.

I could see them doing some SOUTH Carolina expansion though.. Columbia and Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach...

Just my opinion, though..

I wonder why they chose such a small city like ISO? I lived there my 1st 2yrs of college. Back then CCAir could barely fill a J31. FAY has a good population like ILM but like i said. np The community continues to vote on airtran.com

I dont see Hilton Head. They would have to fly into Savannah. The strip at Hilton Head is just too small, and the NIMBY's would be all over it.

That seems bad for Allegiants standards. If you cant fill a plane to Orlando with $39 fares...... Well hopefully that'll pick up.
