Re: Alabama Aviation Thread - 2022

It seems that with WN pulling BHM-LAS, it would be a good time for Allegiant to enter the BHM market. Flights to LAS, PHX, BOS, and FLL should all do well. Could also add AUS, MSY, JAX, LAX, and OAK into the mix, though I'd think those would be longer shots at adds.
