More Pan Am / BMAC Growth

As was predicted here, BMAC wants to enter the DC market. They want to fly there from Hanscom. They also want to add Hanscom-Pittsburgh. We are guessing that the FAA approval mentioned in the article is just a decision on the standard ops specs of the route and has nothing to do with the ongoing DOT investigation on the company's fitness to operate or the IG's investigation.

Don't get me wrong I wanted PAN AM to succeed in YNG, but when they left us stranded..... I was pissed off with them.

I now see they are growing again and I wish them luck, but to go to PITTSBURGH instead of Youngstown is kind of cruel IMHO. They put YNG Airport in a major HATE Campaign by local news and politicians.....

They owe us a favor..

And Shuttle America did *so* well at Hanscomb. No one wants to fly out of Hanscomb when then can go to Logan. It's like when Pease tried to market itself as an alternative to Logan. Didn't work. Williams Gateway in Arizona keeps trying to market itself as an alternative to Sky Harbor. And don't *even* get me started on BMAC...talk about the guests that wouldn't leave!

Jeff,
We like Bedford and we absolutely love Trenton (though TTN's destiny could be much bigger and better than just J31s)...so it's not all bad news in our eyes for BMAC. They have a big hurdle in front of them, however, with the IG and DOT. Once/if that is cleared, then they continue as they were. The problem with that of course is if they continue as they were, does that mean they will go back to losing $30mm a year?
