as it stands, this is only going to the first week of August. I hope they extend it or at least entertain the though of Nov and Dec service.

I hope now that they are going back to at least a hybrid model of what they were, they add some of the previous destinations served back. Since Southwest is gone, I'd hope they'd consider MCO at 3x weekly seasonally. No offense to the time share expert, that would be much better than Sanford and could attract families for booming NWA and growing Springfield.

To make it clear, at this time flights cannot be booked for dates past the first week in August.

I don't know if there is any explanation of why that is, like that they don't intend to offer the service after then, or that they just don't want to make reservations further out.

The fare shown previously is still available for Wed-to-Wed the first of August, but fares for Monday and Saturday then is $78 and $74 per leg.

From the second year of BKG's existence to just a few month's before their abrupt departure, Frontier was steadily growing in Branson. BKG was growing at a 20% clip per year when the carpet got pull out from underneath it. In Frontier's case, it truely was a change in their business model as the slashed Denver hub ops. They are now trending toward a mix of hub connections and point to point. I hope they go back to the old school milk runs and put a brief stop inBKG in between larger markets to fill up excess capacity. That is what Southwest was doing with the Chicago Houston and Dallas flights.

I saw on FB, probably the 4th post down in the comments section: "They have only posted flights thru August but they will be with us until at least November......its just not posted yet"

And also another announcement in a few weeks.

There is an op ed by The Ole Seagull in the February 11 Branson Independent where he discusses the impact of this on Branson.

I'll put 5 bucks down on Sliver Airlines. NotJBL should know of them with his Florida time. They are ditching their Saabs for brand new ATR -42-600s with 46 seats and 33 inch seat pitch. They got 20 on the way. They, themselves teased BKG/MCO. BKG is on the outer limit on that planes range but they just announced Huntsville AL. I see a them tacling on BKG to that route 3x a week, maybe more. They also want to put a base in New Orleans so there's that. This isn't a charter for hire like Elite, Orange and the others but a small, legit airline.

You know what route I'd like to see, BKG/BNA/TYS. That's Branson- Nashville-Knoxville or replace Nashville with Memphis

Was that FLYBRANSON posting that? I'd want it to Jan 1st for Christmas Travel and SDC Lights. Then I can see it dropping off till May.

I have experienced this online rate "hikery." Very infuriating.
