Meanwhile, JetAmerica was busy asserting that no, it's totally not a scheduled service but a charter, and therefore doesn't need these official landing slot doohickies. And the rest, including the resulting decision to delay the start of service from July 13 to August 14, is history. Except perhaps that JetAmerica didn't seek all the help it should have, considering that The Blade quotes a member, Jerry Chabler, of the Toledo Port Authority who says he found out about JA's troubles on July 3, the same day the public did: "We sure should have been given a heads-up," he said. "JetAmerica has to put it together, not the port authority."
Ooh, burn. Chabler continues to come down on the airline, saying "At this point, the ball is in the court of JetAmerica. Based upon what I know and based upon the information I had, I'm not that optimistic." Join the club, Chabler, join the club.
