Skybus goes live

Recommended Posts

Well, this is an interesting airline that I've read a little about before, seems they start service tomorrow, for $10 a ticket (not all tickets are this low) they could cramp me into the most uncomfortable seat they could imagine. Looks like they're using an Airbus 319 from the picture on this article.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18785438/Edit to say, from looking at their route map, I'm shocked they don't offer service to my hometwon, Las Vegas, that would be at least a third of their ticket sales even among all the other destinations. Edit again to say, that I just realized how much even a single gate at KLAS would cost them, and though LA is offered, I don't see them getting any ramp space at KLAX, must be Ontario, Burbank, Long Beach, or even John Wayne, all of those are kind of far, Long Beach being the closest from what I remember.Jeff

lolyou already have every flight in the US (and beyond) going into Las Vegas - I cant believe the price breaks LAS has.I am your friend, believe me. I grew up in Vegas and go back twice a year from Portland OR. What kills me you can get a ticket from Buffalo NY to vegas for $102$, For me at less than half that distance it is $205.Here is the kicker, my folks fly up from Vegas for $89 bucks, same route just a different origin (PDX vs LAS)You guys have it made (like ATL, Newark, ect all the big hubs)all above said in jest with a smile on my face, dont get mad.

It's true, I used to get tickets on Allegiant for $49 to and from Oklahoma City, that is until Allegiant stopped service to OKC, I had it made.Jeff

I fly down to the Pasco airport just so I can take Allegiant flights. In the end it only costs me $40 to fly down there myself and thats what it would cost me in gas and parking. Everyone asks me if I work for the airline when I bring my flight bag on board
