Now if AVL can get more flights to other locations besides hotlanta... cheaply... that would be perfect!

Now if Jetblue or Southwest came to Asheville that would make for some really hot competition which would equal lower ticket prices. See how the free market system works... if allowed.

As much tourist stuff as there is around Orlando, I'm really surprised they weren't doing this already.

oh woopdie doo, you were born here, well most people were not, and if it wasn't for all the incoming, then the airport would probably not even operate. Yeah, some Floridians are idiots, but there are plenty of idiots here too. Plus complaining about them is not going to stop them, or anyone else from any other state to move here. There are no fences, anyone is free to move where ever and when ever, so accept it or keep up the bad attitude which makes you look like the idiot!

Isn't Florida the same state that couldn't figure out a butterfly ballot? Wait, I better bite my tongue, I'm from Sanford.

...be interesting to see how Allegiant out of Greenville reacts... Oh... and by the way... Native Born, Slick Rick and Here to Stay... you win today's Pure Buffoonery award for turning even the simplest of news into a mindless me vs. you piece of junk. Valid points Here to Stay. Just like your Momma (should have) taught you when you were little, just ignore the idiots and they won't matter.

OK, smart a**, put yourself in our place, and say you saw your home towns being over-run by a herd of unappreciative idiots from elsewhere who had absolutely no respect for local folks or our native mountain heritage and history.
People that all thought we were a bunch of inbred hillbillies and weren't able to run our own communities and wanted to tell us all how to run our communities.
Suddenly all these import fools have discovered what we've appreciated for many generations! How would you like this happening to where you were born and raised? It sickens us.

One can only imagine what the Native Americans thought when your people got here. It happens all over, get over it!

Love NC and the people. Most of the natives are very open minded and considerate to others.

LOL.....I'm a native Floridian. You've got to be kidding?? How would we feel?? You mean how did we feel when a lot of the Cubans, Haitians and snowbirds (northerners) did the same thing to us??? I didn't like it either however, I didn't group everyone together!!
There are good and bad in all people. I don't care what color, religion, sex, age, nationality or state you are from!!
I am so SICK of the Floridiot term!!! I came here to find a better place to raise my family. I am not one that tells people what to do. I am active in my kids schools, my community and my church. I think myself and alot of others from Florida do contribute a lot!! You are the North Carolidiot!!
