2007 Awards: Best Travel Newcomer
Nothing has shaken up the travel scene more this year than Skybus. The dirt cheap, if-you-don't-like-it-too-bad carrier promised to bring European-style low cost flying to the States. And, as we discovered, Skybus succeeded.
While you'll more often than not end up at out of the way airports, you won't be able to call customer service and you may find your flight axed from the schedule, the good news is the flight only cost you 10 bucks.
Like Allegiant Air before it, Skybus isn't competing with the legacy carriers or even Southwest. The airline has turned travel (and vacationing) into a commodity, as easy to buy as a new sofa--and in so doing has created an entirely new way to travel.
