Re: What’s next for Silver Airways?

Space and defense folks like Branson? That's a new one on me. BKG just got Frontier which will start DEN service in June. They had this service a while back actually. Yup, I think they had it when the airport opened. They were the second carrier to sign on after AirTran. Sun Country was the first C...

According to this article, the order is 16 42s and 4 72s. The 72s have more range. Is this the plane for the possible BKG service they hinted?

If Silver is extending their network to HSV, the concept of a 1-stop and RON somewhere other than BKG is possible. Not sure MCO-HSV-BKG would work. Perhaps a smaller destination without MCO non-stop. LIT/LEX/EVV come to mind. And while G4 flies all non-stop to SFB, I believe at least LIT/EVV are le...
