Eastwind To Shut Down

Wed Sep 01, 1999 4:26 am

Eastwind announced today that it is ceasing service on September 7.

Apparently they couldn't find a buyer, despite some interest from other airlines when their management company put them up for sale ($10 million US) earlier this month.

They made a fool of me. I thought they would be able to pull out fo their troubles. They sure came close to success, though.

Its really too bad. They had a good idea, just had a few problems they weren't able to work out in time. Maybe the empty facilities at GSO will bring way to another startup or at least new service (TWA? JetBlue? Midway? ...)

As you might know i had a topic about AirTran. Well someone there stated AirTran could start an attractive point to point system with the 717. I think Greensboro might be a good start for one of those operations. Its conveniently located on the east coast where airtran is big and has open facilities. also it is ashame eastwind didnt make it but what can you say. yet another name to add to the deregulation knockouts :*(
Why would God make us all so different, if He wanted us to be the same?
