    Kind of odd that in a release about United service to DEN they make a plug for Delta. LOL.

  • Ken June 6, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    Don’t forget luggage fees and seat fees! That 99 dollar fare is more like 150!

    Traded LAX for DIA. Not sure what the rational is there. It sure wasn’t an expansion of service for SGU. The only thing the new airport has done for me is turn a 5-minute drive into a 15-minute drive and magically change free parking into $5/day parking. No preference for me between the turbo-props and the regional jets. They are both safe and equally (un) comfortable. The St George metro area is just too small and too close to Las Vegas to merit service expansion. The city fathers were blowing smoke when they riled the population up with talk of expanded service. If you build it, they may not come.

    • HunnerWoof June 7, 2013 at 2:20 pm

      Bender, DEN makes a lot more sense than LAX, as it offers many more connecting opportunities. Traffic to LAX generally ended at LAX, while traffic to DEN will likely include a lot more people connecting to points east. Now if they could just coordinate the schedule better with UA in DEN, it might mean filling some seats.

      • Bender June 7, 2013 at 3:57 pm

        Yeah, I guess. SLC has been where I connect going east out of SGU in the past. DEN is clearly a better place to connect… 5th busiest US airport vs. 24th for SLC. I used the LAX route and will miss it. Wish we had flights to DEN, LAX, SLC and PHX. I’ll continue to drive to LAS and fly Southwest when I am paying and fly out of SGU when someone else is paying.

      Can’t agree more, Bender, St George is clearly just too close (technically in the Vegas market) for its own, real fuctionaling airport now and in the foreseeable future. The city government did indeed blow smoke – as is typical of them when THEY are in favor of something, not the citizens.
      As far as I’m concerned, as long as we continue to have comfortable, reliable taxi/bus service with cheap rates to McCarran, there’s just no hope for SGU.

  • Albert June 6, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    .
    most of the SGU/LAX traffic was SkyWorsts’ own people getting out of Saint George (small wonder).
    .
    You know they were flying at a discount, and the flights were thusly at a loss.
    .
    Denver?
    .
    meh
    .
    as for the new airport, it was a ripoff of taxpayer money from the getgo.

    I will continue to shuttle to Las Vegas and help the local limousine and van companies in St. George. I don’t like riding in a van for 2 hours but the shuttle service didn’t ask for millions of tax-payer dollars to help fund their agenda. When I see more than one airline at SGU I might consider flying, until then it’s a great airport for the employees of Sky-West who fill the planes.

  • Bender June 6, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Bree, the Las Vegas airport also receives federal/state/local money… SGU wasn’t funded any differently than LAS. The FAA paid over $120M and the local share was somewhere around $25M. The FAA funding comes from fees paid by the flying public. When the land the old airport is eventually sold the local cost may become quite low. The airport will certainly be a good investment for us in the long term, but short term it’s hard for me to see the benefit. I am especially annoyed by the happy talk about all of the new flying routes that would open up by local politicians who should have known better. Also, when you factor in the cost of the equipment installed to charge for parking it’s hard to see how it made any sense to install it. The city could have garnered some good will by leaving the parking free.

    • Dylan June 16, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      Exactly, that airport is far from busy enough to require parking fees anyway
