Random stuff[edit]

ACA does not operate Bae 146's. We operate the CRJ 200 and Jetstream 41's as well as the Dornier 328 Jet.

The page says "very low airfares: as little as $29 one-way to Florida" -- from where?
-- From Washington DC IAD.

How can the airline have 85 aircraft and fewer destinations?? I think it might be 8 or 5 aircraft.

We had more than "8 or 5" aircraft as United express. We also had more than "8 or 5" aircraft as Independence Air. CL6500 and Airbus 319's.

What's with this? "Billoinare Spencer Laubach bought the airlines name and will revamp the airline with a fleet of crj-200, M80, A320's, 737's, 757, 767's. The regional airline will be called IA Airways although the continental airline will still be called Independence Air."

Split talk pages?[edit]

Why is there a redirect from the Atlantic Coast Airlines talk page to the Independence Air talk page but the article pages don't redirect? --Daysleeper47 14:04, 10 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

In 2004, someone moved the ACA article here. About a year later, someone else started a new article for ACA, but never removed the redirect on the talk page. I just did so. Hawaiian717 22:08, 9 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

chicken or the egg, which came first?[edit]

The article implies that UA withdrew the contract. Didn't the airline plan to fly flights under its own name causing UA to withdraw (instead of helping the competition)?Archtrain 21:09, 29 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I was working for ACA/Independence at the time of the switch, we were told that UA and ACA were unable to reach an agreement on the contract for regional flying. Basically UA wasn't willing to pay ACA what they needed to operate. There were rumors around the company when I started in 2002 that we were going to start our own independent service, so I think it was always on the back burner as a just-in-case thing. 20:24, 30 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

February 2008 Re-Write[edit]

I just blew up the article! It was almost entirely sourced through external links without inline citations and references to FLYi's own site, which is no longer online. Inline sourcing was easy because this was all over the news. I removed some of the information on destinations and fleets because it wasn't sourced, but I am awaiting information on consensus re: destinations and defunct airlines. If it comes back, I think it should go on another page, like is done without the other airlines since a list of blue in the middle of an article is not easy to read. It needs some more work, but I need to go offline so I tagged it under-construction. As always, I appreciate any help as I'm not familiar with the airline -- I actually only learnt of its existence when working on HPN and when I found the article, I decided to clean it up.

Redundant Articles[edit]

Please see and comment on a discussion here about the possible redundancy in this article TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 15:28, 19 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

As noted on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Airlines#Independence Air and redundancy, the above article isn't really needed as a standalone piece, content not already on this article ought to be merged into this one. -- Hawaiian717 (talk) 15:29, 19 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

I'll put the merge tags on, see if the creator wants to comment -- otherwise just do it TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 15:34, 19 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
