Skybus’ founder and CEO Bill Diffenderffer has stepped down amid strategy changes at the carrier, leaving the airline’s CFO to run the show. Diffenderffer raised the capital to start Skybus and launched the airline last year. But, as we’ve discussed here more than was really necessary, the initial strategy was flawed from the beginning. That said, the airline has made a number of changes (primarily point-to-point flying that no longer focuses on Columbus quite so much) that I think will put them back on course. The linked article notes these service changes:
It has canceled a CMH-Niagara Falls service and a second daily CMH-Milwaukee flight scheduled to begin April 1. On April 15 it will discontinue service from CMH to Chattanooga and halve twice-daily service to New York Stewart and Chicopee, Mass. From Greensboro it will discontinue flights to Gulfport/Biloxi and reduce service to Gary, Wilmington, Del., Punta Gorda and Stewart.
