Kind of fits the Lufthansa trend....doesn't radically change the branding but reduces everything down to a 2-color scheme.

For the most part I like it... Though there seems to be something "missing" and I think I know exactly what that is..

Sun Country has announced LAS-RDM...wowza! Twice per week starting in late summer. I'm excited about this, although it does strongly suggest that any plans G4 had of entering RDM are now on hold, at best. That's a shame for me personally as I'd been coaxing them for months to give this route a seco...Jump to post
There was rumor Allegiant was looking at re-adding that route. They were, but.... I don't think we will see G4 re-enter RDM now with the addition of SY. I had sent them a few letters urging them to jump on the expanding RDM market before someone else did first. Well, someone else did first! :spin:Jump to post

Trump should be more concerned about being near hydroxilic acid. Pretty much everyone that has ever developed cancer had been in contact with it. The worst thing about it?

Don't take it as gospel but back in the early days of this forum when UPS was still flying DC-8s I heard nothing but complaints about flying them.

Here’s a whacky G4 thought. Does anyone think they would consider HIO as an entry into the Portland market? PDX can be a pain to get to from the west side, especially during high traffic times.

Of particular interest for me is how PAE will, or won't, affect anything at BLI.

G4 did look at Salem over a decade ago, but using that analysis is meaningless. Everything has changed since then i.e. economically, demographically, not to mention airline fleet.

Quick update. The heritage flight aircraft will indeed be 417. It appears yesterday's listing as 414 was indeed in error. I kind of had a feeling about this since 414 is not even slated to be ferried to Las Vegas.Jump to post
Why fly more than 1 MD-80 out to LAS for the Heritage flight? Is it just a form of redundancy in case of a maintenance issue? That would be my assumption. I wonder why the ferry flight for 414 isnt visible anywhere though. Why fly two md80s to Vegas and use neither? I wonder if it's a typo or somet...Jump to post
