History

Independence Air started life as Atlantic Coast Airlines on December 15, 1989, operating feeder services as United Express for United Airlines and Delta Connection for Delta Air Lines. After United withdrew the contract, Atlantic Coast reinvented itself as low-cost carrier Independence Air. It was announced on November 19, 2003 and operations as Independence Air began on 16 June 2004. At its inception, it was unique among low-cost carriers in that its fleet mainly consisted of 50-seat regional jets, although the airline later introduced larger Airbus A319 equipment. Atlantic Coast Airlines (IATA: DH , ICAO: BLR , and Callsign: Blue Ridge) was an airline based in the United States owned by Atlantic Coast Holdings, Inc. ...

In addition to the almost inevitable low cost tagline in its marketing, Independence Air became quickly known for the humorous touches it added to the flying experience, such as replacing the flight attendant safety announcements with prerecorded versions of the warnings by celebrities such as James Carville (addressing the left side of the plane) and Mary Matalin (addressing the right) and their promotion from within of former baggage handler Dave George to being anointed "the Flyi Guy"--the airline's resident comedian. This wisecracker's prerecorded announcements (in lieu of elevator music) spiced up even the experience of being on hold with Flyi via such lines as "I wanted to call our membership program 'The Mile I Club'-- but I was voted down."

In the Summer of 2005, the airline offered the GLiDE Summer Travel Pass for college students. Upon paying $250, the customer would be able to fly at no cost (After paying Taxes & Airport fees) from May 1-Aug 31, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Saturdays. This move was meant not to bring in revenue, but to try and fill seats that otherwise would have flown empty.


After facing financial hardships of the airline industry, Independence Air announced on January 2, 2006 that it would cease operations at 7:26pm UTC-5 on January 5, 2006.

Financial difficulties and cessation of operations

After its emergence as an independent brand name, Independence Air became known for offering very low airfares: as little as $29 one-way to Florida from Washington Dulles International Airport. However, the company never overcame a series of financial problems during its transition. In February 2005, one of its aircraft was repossessed after the company missed a lease payment. Later that year, three more aircraft were sold or repossesed. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


In the first quarter of 2005, Independence Air lost $105 million on revenue of $91 million. A J.P. Morgan analyst released a report in early May 2005 predicting that Independence Air would lose $183.2 million in 2005, and have less than $5 million cash on hand by the end of the year. The report forecast that United Airlines, AirTran Airways, US Airways, and other East Coast carriers would stand to gain the most should Independence Air cease operations. John Pierpont Morgan (April 17, 1837 – March 31, 1913), American financier and banker, was born in Hartford, Connecticut, a son of Junius Spencer Morgan (1813–1890), who was a partner of George Peabody and the founder of the house of J.

Throughout 2005, Independence Air planned to emerge from deficits through fleet changes and workforce layoffs. At its inception, Independence Air's small Canadair Regional Jets cost the company $0.22 per seat-mile to operate. Low-cost carriers with larger aircraft were able to operate at much lower costs: $0.065 for JetBlue (with Airbus A320s) and $0.075 for Southwest Airlines (with Boeing 737s). In an effort to lower its costs to a competitive level, Independence Air began taking deliveries of new Airbus A319 aircraft that were expected to reduce operating costs toward JetBlue and Southwest's levels. The airline was never able to rebound.

  • On November 7, 2005, FLYi, Inc., the parent company of Independence Air, and its subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as stated in this press release. This filing had been long predicted by many industry analysts. In the filing, the company announced it would request court approval to engage in a formal court-supervised auction process to seek outside investor(s) or purchaser(s) it needed to continue its operations. If the process had been successful, it would have been expected to be concluded within sixty days.
  • On December 15, it was announced that service from Washington Dulles to Chicago IL, Jacksonville FL, Buffalo NY, and Manchester NH would be eliminated as of January 4, 2006. If the airline had not ceased operations the following day, the move would have reduced its workforce by about 50 to 2,700 employees, down from more than 5,000 when the airline launched. It also would have reduced daily flights to 170, serving 33 cities. The previous spring, Independence served 47 cities.
  • On December 19, USA Today reported that for the second time in three years, Phoenix-based Mesa Air Group is bidding to acquire Independence Air.
  • On December 23, Jeff Rodgers, Vice President of Employee Services at Independence Air parent FLYi, Inc. sent notices to their union employees stating that the airline could possibly cease all operations and separate all employees at all locations sometime between January 7, 2006 and January 21, 2006. An image of that notice is available here.
  • The company's remaining assets were liquidated at a public auction at Dulles Airport over April 21, 22, 27, and 28, 2006. Potential bidders were allowed to stroll through the company's headquarters and examine the items up for bid. Among such items was a "CEO of the Year Award" from George Washington University still sitting on former CEO Kerry Skeen's credenza in his old office.

Airline Bulletin: Independence Air (5487 words)
Independence Air used to be a vendor, to Delta and United, but it saw the shakeout coming, and decided to be proactive and seek a new business model.
Independence Air is unlikely to restructure into a profitable carrier, and hopefully, for the sake of the industry, Independence Air will fold and the rest of the industry, the sane faction of the industry will thrive in the new world.
Independence Air uses for the most part 50-seat Canadair Regional Jets (CRJs), and the economics of CRJs is pretty lousy, but when fuel is at $67 a barrel, the economics just simply won't allow you to break even.
