By the way LVI is in
Livingstone, Zambie, South Africa.
ABE is that Rinky-Dink,teeny-weeny, Micky Mouse airstrip along airport road near Rt-22.
Saying ABE is LVI won't make it true.
you tag your bag "LVI", it's going to Africa.
You tag your bag "ABE" ,It'll go to Allentown.

Next to landing Southwest Airlines, this is as good as it gets. The Lehigh Valley is the envy of many cities around the U.S.today who would give anything to land any type of new service, especially low .service like AirTran in these tough economic times. Hats off to the person or persons at LNAA who were able to make this happen.

From your list I think the best bets would be; Montreal, Las Vegas, Houston & Minneapolis.
The last two being hubs for Delta/Northwest & Continental with more access to Mid West and Far West regionals.
I would love to see flights to LA & SF, but not sure of the size requirements for such a long flight works for ABE.
Have they ever explored offering direct flights to San Juan, PR? Obviously there is a strong population base in the area, not to mention that you can connect to any other number of Carribean destinations from there.

This is actually very good news. Air Tran is solid. I share Comment's enthusiasm. If we can finally get this airport up to par, it will help further define this area. In this new global community, we will require differentiation to compete. I do NOT want to be NYC bedroom community. An airport that serves the greater eastern PA REGION is a start. The next step is to attract 21st century PRODUCTIVE jobs. No offense to LVH (they are great), but it pains me that a hospital system is the largest employer in the area.
