Independence Air Keeps Shrinking

Independence Air, which is currently on the ol’ auction block, continues to shrink itself down (or as some say, "right-size" the business).  The company announced yesterday that it will discontinue service from Washington to Chicago, Jacksonville, Manchester (NH), and Buffalo.  In addition, they will reduce frequencies in most markets.

(Incidentally, and this has absolutely nothing to do with anything, the people who live above us are SCREAMING at each other right now.  At it’s 8 o’clock in the morning.  Screaming.  One of them must’ve booked tickets to Jacksonville on Independence Air or something.)

Anyway, according to the folks over at the Airliners message board, the airline told employees that it will keep flying through March.  We’ll see.


  1. Screaming you say…are you sure that might not be passion?

    Regardless, maybe I air is seeking to be even more “independent” and just get rid of those pesky customers they expect so much.
