Hooters Down to One Route

Hooters Air will stop flying from Lehigh Valley International Airport, making it the fifth carrier to pull out of the airport since 9/11.The news appears to mark the end of Hooters' national ambitions. The carrier, created in 2003 and known for the scantily clad ''Hooter Girls'' on its flights, reached 15 cities last year. It will soon only have one route left, between Newark, N.J., and Myrtle Beach, N.C., where it is based, an LVIA official said.

Why would Hooters been in talks with ORH if they where going to pull out of all their cities?

Who knows maybe they were in talks before all of these troubles began.. I can bet you this much, they are not talking to ORH now. If they are, we should be very cautious offering them any deals.

It was important to bring in a sold carrier like Allegiant, not another PanAm.. Right now, Hooters can not be considered a solid second-tier airline like Allegiant and USA3000.

Yes Hooters and ORH will never happen and its going to be hard, especially for YNG, to bring in new airlines. Now we will approach the business market with the hopes Allegiant expands.
