Flying Coach wrote Skybus International: Don’t Hold Your Breath

Those hoping for $10 flights to the Bahamas and Mexico on Skybus this summer are out of luck. Skybus Airlines applied last year to fly to two cities in the Bahamas as well as to Cancun, Mexico and hasn’t given any updates on when they might launch those flights.
But Skybus CEO Bill Diffenderffer tells the Bahamian paper The Nassau Guardian this week that the airline won’t start flying to the Bahamas until at least fall 2008. He says “regulatory and logistic concerns,” not the economy, are dictating the timeline.
