More Skybus Info Linky
Skybus is aiming to become the Ryanair of the USA.
They will be totally no-frills, everything that can be charged for, will be charged for.
Every single Skybus flight has just 10 seats on it for $10, so don’t hesitate to buy a ticket-what do have to lose???
Their hub will be Columbus, OH.
You can fly for $10 to/from such cities as Los Angeles(Burbank, CA), Oakland CA, Seattle, and Ft. Lauderdale.
-With over $230 Million, no airline has ever launched with more startup capital, the previous record was Jetblue’s $130 Million.
-Skybus currently has 8 Airbus A319’s, and has orders for 57 more!
-Each plane has just over 150, all leather seats.
-Want to advertise? For just $500,000 a year you can plaster your name across the entire body of a Skybus plane!
-They will be flying from a lot of secondary airports:
By saying x =They really mean y:
Here are the other airports where they mean what they actually say:
-Columbus, OH has given Skybus incentives worth tens of millions of dollars for the hub.
-With a huge Columbus hub promised to be developed, Ohio will now have 3 cities with major hubs, Continental in Cleveland, Delta in Cincinnati, and Skybus in Columbus. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it is now the only state to have 3 separate cities with hub airports.
-The gist of their policies is that all you are buying is your airfare, anything else is additional.
-The first 2 checked bags are $5 each, so it’s less than what Spirit charges.
-All tickets go to Columbus, OH. so if you want to go from Burbank to Ft. Lauderdale you will have to buy 1 ticket from Burbank to Columbus, and 1 from Columbus to Ft. Lauderdale.
-All seats are first-come, first served, however for $10 per flight you can purchase priority boarding. It is recommended to buy the priority boarding when you buy your ticket as there is only a limited amount of them sold on each flight.
-To keep costs down, all communication is currently only available by email, there is no public phone number!
-Changes to flights are $40+change in fare.
-They say that food and beverages will be for sale-so you can’t bring your own, Do you guys think that they will really enforce that?
I will continue to post more information on Skybus, so keep checking back!

This should be a very usuful deal to alot of people free musuem in the month of may
unless they offer kosher food, and they enforce the no food brought on board, thats a law suit waiting to happen
Anon-If they actually enforce that rule, (And I can’t imagine that they will) I wouldn’t be surprised if someone does sue them for that!
R”L the decline of the US airline industry has arrived. The nail in the coffin will be when Virgin America starts selling tickets
PS they should just call it greyhound in the sky
is it worth buying 1 ticket to nyc-oh and then another to oh-bur
The death to Jet-Blue.
Im leaving on birthright in a month, and staying the whole summer, and I need a second 2gig SD card. If you could find me one within a week or two that’d be swell.
intersesting they’re boasting that everyting is non-stop, but it’s worse (as of now, at least) if you want to go from, say,L.A. to Ft. Lauderdale you have to check in twice (insteadof getting two boarding passes in one checkin)
