Default Alligiant ending all Orlando Service?

I was just on the Orlando International website and It had a note about Alligiant air ending all service on Feb.1. They currently have ten destinations out of MCO. Not enough Pax to fill their planes to the small cities that they service?

That explains why their planes are usually parked at the North Ramp recently. Surprising to me, as I thought they were always at Sanford, and from what I notice, even now always have been. Was thinking they had some exclusive charter contract or had a maintenance contractor at KMCO to do some work on them.

Anyways, I think it may also have more to do with maybe the fees being higher at KMCO than KSFB (not too knowledgable too on that, so I can't fill you in here). Allegiant's model I think focuses on these smaller airports because they are typically cheaper to land at than a larger airport. It's fairly similar to the Ryanair model in that aspect if you ask me.

Yeah, same like Ryanair, focusing on smaller airports :P
