With fares that low, their load factors will need to be incredibly high for them to stay in business, but I'm not sure their model is sustainable. I mean, even RedCoach USA has adopted a dynamic pricing model.

They never even had a chance. Florida Express Jet was grounded before ever carrying a single passenger or operating a single flight. The website has reverted to a "coming soon" state and they've informed TLH that the service will not be starting as previously announced. Oops.

They unable to find a gate number. They didn't have one yet. They did not have an agreement from BCAD. Right now, they will have try to find a gate number. Hopefully sometime in a few month or so. They will have secure the gates.
