Ain't gonna happen people, this operation is on life support already. Give it maybe 2 months and then its over. Don't want to see that but how many have tried and failed? Maybe they can get a contract with a major airline and provide service to these cities on a CPA or FFD.

And what would be the benefit of pre-check if the flights are pretty much empty?


Not having to take half of your stuff out of your carry on at the security checkpoint. And while CLD might not be that busy, SJC, SMF, RNO, LAS, and DEN are so not being able to go through the PreCheck lanes there would be an extra disincentive for someone to choose California Pacific over another airline.


SJC, SMF, RNO, LAS and DEN have precheck so I don’t see what the issue is. Besides, this airline is dead. It’s just a matter of running out of money at this point.

If California Pacific doesn't participate in PreCheck, then their passengers won't be able to use the PreCheck lines, even if the passenger has it and can use it when flying Southwest, United, Alaska, etc.

They still have about 18 months left on the EAS contracts over in Denver. Im sure this operation and their charter business is what is keeping them afloat, albeit Vallas is quite quite wealthy and is principal owner in some very exclusive golf resorts around the world. According to another article they have 2 more 145's coming on property soon, and also said they have an E170 coming on in early 2019.

Im a little surprised they didn't find a charter carrier to contract operate their EAS services for those days when they went in operable.

The pilot shortage is apparently a major problem for them, and then of course no interline agreements.

JetSuiteX tried from CLD a few years ago. I’m not even sure if flights ever even operated before they were cancelled because of the low bookings.

With only 4 seats, they have to charge a high price per seat. That limits the market quite a bit.

You're right. I checked, it didn't operate. In early 2017 it tried to make it work by tagging CRQ to the proposed SJC-SMO flights, but of course that also never got going.

More bad news

Mayors of Pierre, Watertown, tell feds California Pacific Airlines delinquent on bills, flights
https://www.capjournal.com/news/mayors- ... 60cd5.html

The mayors of Pierre and Watertown, South Dakota, have implored federal aviation officials to step in and engineer quick fixes to the recent poor performances — financially and flyingwise — by California Pacific Airlines, the communities’ newly branded air carrier. Or let them find another airline.

In a letter dated Dec. 21 and revised Dec. 27, Pierre Mayor Steve Harding and Watertown Mayor Sarah Caron told Joel Szabat, deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s office of aviation and international affairs, that CPA is not paying its bills and is missing a big slice of its flights and is late half the time with the ones that do land.

Losing the EAS flying would pretty much kill the airline imo. Its probably the only consistent revenue they earn and used to subsidize their California dreams. While they also run some charters, I doubt that is a business segment that can generate much dependable income.

Face it, California Pacific Airlines is finished: they have cancelled all their California flights for the foreseeable future, their pilots are leaving them, their planes are constantly in maintenance, they constantly had to cancel or delay flights, they cannot pay their bills, and a busy flight for them was one with over 5 people on it, and their customer reviews are terrible. Another airline dream that has fallen apart.

A bit off topic, but if they were to officially shutter, where would California Pacific rank in terms of shortest amount of time from first flight to shutting down? Have any other airlines closed up shop so quickly?

McClain and Pride Air would both came close: Each lasted about 3 1/2 months in actual service, PHX-based McClain in 1986-87 and MSY-based Pride in 1985.

That's NOT true! Regarding their official press release:
We have temporarily suspended our Carlsbad flights and ticket sales due to impact from the nationwide pilot shortage.


So it does only affect Carlsbad in the moment, but NOT the other PSO routes from Denver. So, there is no need for a restart as the airline is still active...

Saw their AM arrival at DEN 12/20, and counted near 35 pax getting off. Figured since just prior to Christmas, it should be about full. At least it was operating.
As for short time operator, was an outfit in Florida in mid 80s ( Southern Express or something) that started up and shut down after one day.

You just don't buy an airline and let it be. ADI had a lot of skeletons in the closet, and everyone was aware of them. ADI needed some TLC and cash injection to make the Cal Pac plan to work.

They should have started out like go! did, with shuttle service to some of these markets to compete with WN/UA/AS/AA for the intra-California business. You aren't going to be taken seriously (think Allegiant) by the business traveler if you don't offer something tangible. And the high frequency WN/AS flights SAN/SNA-> SJC, SMF, you just can't compete with 2 flights a day, you need 3 or 4. Even JetSuiteX knows this and offers some good frequency on the peak days.

Yes, JetSuiteX seems to be doing a much better job--from the way their planes look and are configured, to their advertising, to their website--gives a much better impression than CA Pacific right off the bat. Maybe they should start flying to Carlsbad now from SJC, OAK, etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong but i dont think JetSuiteX flies out of SJC. For the longest time they had their own private terminal at Atlantic Aviation (FBO) but I havent seen any of their planes their for months...........

They had a perfectly good airline - but they messed it up by growing too fast. That's probably the biggest mistake that airlines make (People Express II, OneJet, SkyBus)

Aren't they flying SJC-BUR?

Nope, just checked their website. I thought someone is doing SJC to the LA area.

Actually that EAS route from Watertown and Pierre have done well...they've averaged about 73% full in and out of Denver, with Watertown performing particularly well. I fear that the recent operational problems will send people back to the highways even if they stay afloat.
