NEWS: Independence Air Gambles on Vegas

OK...alright...its a cheesy title. I couldn't resist. But at least Independence Air is trying to look to new markets as part of their desperate attempt to avoid bankruptcy. They announced that they will start regular service from Washington Dulles to Las Vegas with the shiny new Airbus A319's. Independence Air had recently cut back service in an effort to contain costs but apparently they are not content to cower in the corner hoping to just ride this out. Frankly, I hope they make it...if anything because they have a cool name and I tend to root for the underdog.
