Start-Up Airline Delays LAX-Dallas Service

March 05, 2000

Start-up Legend Airlines, which had begun selling tickets for flights that were supposed to begin last week from Dallas' Love Field to Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., announced a week before the starting date that its planes weren't ready. Kimberly Plaskett, an airline spokeswoman, said "we had some unique custom items," such as steam ovens in the galleys, that the airline needed to finish installing in its four leased DC-9s and get certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. She said she didn't know when the work would be finished. A new start date is to be announced this week for the airline, which was scheduled to begin Dallas-Las Vegas service later this month.

She said about 3,000 tickets had been booked and that the airline began calling passengers Feb. 22 to tell them about the cancellations. "Bumped" passengers can choose between being re-booked on Delta Airlines flights out of the Dallas-Fort Worth airport or getting full refunds, she added. Free companion tickets are also offered. Telephone (877) FLY-LEGEND.
