    On its last day of operation, Skybus provided service to 17 destinations throughout the United States. Skybus began its inaugural flight on May 22, 2007, when the airline began flights from their Port Columbus hub. The first service that does not include its Columbus hub began December 17, 2007, when Skybus began flights between Portsmouth and St. Augustine as well as Punta Gorda, Florida.

    On October 16, 2007, Skybus announced it was eliminating service to San Diego, Bellingham, and cut one flight a day to Burbank. The cuts were made for rising fuel costs as it was more cost effective to use their current fleet on shorter and more profitable runs. Service to San Diego was expected to resume once the airline obtained more aircraft. At the same time, Skybus said it would add a second daily flight to Greensboro, North Carolina, now their 2nd focus city, and a third daily flight to Punta Gorda, Florida. Announced on February 6, 2008, Skybus was to be ending service to Oakland on May 31, 2008.

    On October 22, 2007, Skybus announced the opening of a new focus city at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina. On March 8, 2008, Skybus landed its first flight at New Castle Airport, south of Wilmington, Delaware. Many travelers in the Philadelphia area preferred the smaller airport without the congestion issues of PHL. Skybus announced on March 19, 2008 that "previously announced service between Columbus and Nagara Falls, NY, [before it even started], as well as a previously announced second daily flight between Columbus and Milwaukee, will not begin." Also announced was all service to/from Chattanooga, TN would end on April 14, 2008, along with a cut from two to one daily flight from Greensboro, NC and Wilmington, DE, and elimation of the Greensboro, NC and Gulfport-Biloxi, MS flight. On April 4, 2008 Skybus announced the cessation of all flights effective with the last scheduled departure of the day. Service was set to begin on June 1, 2008 between New York (Stewart International Airport / Newburgh, NY) and Boston (Portsmouth, NH), Hartford (Chicopee, MA) and Punta Gorda, FL, Hartford and St. Augustine, FL, and Richmond, VA and St. Augustine.

    Die wollten noch billiger als RyanAir sein - wahrscheinlich haben die Stehplätze nicht durchsetzen können. :mrgreen:

    Übrigens dürfte Airbus begeistert sein - skybus hatte 65 A319 geordert, erste Auslieferung in 2008.
