I feel your pain, WDWMaw. We flew AT out of LEX the last two WDW trips. We live in Louisville and loved having the MUCH cheaper non-stop option other than SW out of SDF (last two trips on AT I paid $600-$700 RT for 4). DSisIL lives in Lex not far from the airport so parking at her house was free and she just took us and picked us up. Was so sad when they pulled AT out of the LEX market. That put us back into SW being the only close non stop option.

Have you checked Cinci (CVG)? We have flown out of Cinci a couple of times. Its not cheap but they have more non stops--all Delta I believe.

I am leery to book Allegiant because we have school aged children and can't really reschedule a day if the flight is cancelled. A friend used Allegiant last year out of LEX to Ft Myers/Tampa area. They were on time the way down but her flight home got cancelled so they had to wait an extra day in FL (OH THE HORROR!). Allegiant did give them a hotel voucher for a cheap room. But what a pain if you are at the airport ready to come home and then are scrambling to find a room, etc. I wouldn't want to do that especially with kids.

My uncle who lives in FL flew Allegiant over Thanksgiving to come visit us. He flew out of Tampa into LEX and had no problems either direction. He said he'd definitely use them again.

Myself, I'll be scouring the SW website like a hawk trying to find a good deal. I've not been seeing the deals for the time frame already open though so I'm not too hopeful for our October trip.

Well, after reading this thread I'm not sure if I want to go with Allegiant or not.

We've booked our stay and now I need to find flights in August. We're in the Harrisburg area and would *prefer* a non-stop flight. It is my understanding that Allegiant is the only airline that provides that in this area.

Mostly, I don't want to drive to BWI or Philly (or anywhere that's more than an hour or so). The non-stop isn't as much of an issue to me, but DH feels differently.

My big question for you folks is on the Allegiant site right now you can book flights through 8/13 - of course my dates are 8/23 and 9/1. Anyone know when they will extend their booking window?
