U.S. Carriers Expanding Service
Tuesday, August 23, 2005
I like to see U.S. commercial aviation becoming more aggressive, growing and expanding -- it's good for the industry -- and of course good for all of us who are involved in it or want to be professionally involved in it. Good example: AMERICAN EAGLE just added new daily non-stop service to 11 U.S. cities: Charlotte, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Louisville, Memphis, Nashville, Norfolk, Pittsburg and Richmond. American Eagle has just added weekend jet service between Miami and Cincinnati. In case you're curious, all these flights will be operated with Embraer ERJ 140s.
INDEPENDENCE AIR just began expanded service to Charlotte from Washington Dulles, operating with Airbus A319s. Their current schedule on that route all operate with 50-seat Bombardier CRJs.
AIRTRAN AIRWAYS is also adding service -- new daily non-stop service to Richmond from Atlanta and Philadelphia and Boston. AirTran operates these routes using Boeing 717s (in case you're comparing with other regional jets, the 717 has 12 business-class seats and 105 coach seats).
Anyone interested in a really good place for professional flight training? Try Phoenix East Aviation in Daytona Beach, Florida. First class instructors, extensive program and priced less than comparable professional flight academies. It's international in scope -- many foreign students as well as U.S.
