Closing 4 cities and reductions to CLT too

Independence Air is again cutting its daily flights, including those between Charlotte and its Washington, D.C., hub. Starting the first week in January, the low-fare carrier will offer just two daily flights to Washington's Dulles International Airport, with a third flight on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, according to a schedule on the airline's Web site. The airline now flies the route three times a day, down from the peak of eight times a day this summer.

Hope they find a buyer soon because there is not much more to cut.

Wonder how safe my flights are -- I have a IAD-BOS flight booked (from long ago) for 12/28 returning 1/2. I'm guessing IAD-BOS is going to be one of the last routes they cut... (fingers crossed)

Safety wise you're fine. FLYi runs a first class maintenance operation.

I'm fairly certain that ScottinHooville was not discussing the safety of Flyi or their maintenance standards; I took the post as a question about whether Flyi will still be flying IAD-BOS in two weeks.
