I know you're enamored with the far East Valley, but the fact is, I doubt you'll see any increased commercial service to IWA
outside of G4
. That airport is in the middle of nowhere. If Spirit and Frontier couldn't make it work, jetBlue won't take the chance. I have to go out that way (the 60/Signal Butte) once a year for a week. It's a brutal trip to my place in Central Phoenix. I can only imagine how annoyed a first time visitor would be if they flew BOS
and had to get to the Phoenician.
