Good Night Independence

It’s all over but the crying for Dulles-based Independence Air, as they’re closing operations on Thursday. Independence, formerly the regional and short-haul carrier for United at Dulles, closed after just 18 months of operations. While it’s tough to see the airline choices at Dulles dwindle, it does give us hope for other airlines to pick up their gate space at Dulles. Perhaps this will give Southwest an in at Dulles, or perhaps JetBlue could pick up the other gates. Either way, Independence’s assets are still up for sale, so if you’re interested in a commuter jet, or a luggage truck, I’m sure they will be glad to sell it to you.

    I’m sad to hear about this airline folding. Late last year I flew them to San Francisco non-stop from Dulles for $89 each way. The flights were 2 of the best I have ever experienced, and I *hate* flying.
