I see the Pleasanton Weekly has shifted it's content focus away from community news and towards corporate advertising. Keep it relevant Jeb Bing.

I see this as newsworthy, in that "who knew" Stockton had an airport with commercial flights. True, this article quotes a lot from the airline's press release. So maybe better if it had said, "Stockton airport now has commercial flights to someplace other than Las Vegas." Which I think is true.

I hope the flight is non-stop between the mainland and Hawaii. Not a whole lot of places to land between here and Hawaii unless you want to land on an aircraft carrier.

The deals available on Allegiant can be very attractive, if you like to travel light and no-frills. I took the Stockton to Vegas route with Allegiant. There are fees for everything, including carry-on bags. There is a fee for making a reservation online, which you can avoid by making a reservation at the airport.
But if you want to do that, make sure you show up at the airport when they are open, they have very limited hours, around the times they have departing flights.
Stockton doesn't have much in the way of transit, parking, or rental car options, so get someone to drop you off and pick you up.

Jim is correct, Allegiant has lots of fees, except when they first start operating a route. My Oakland to Bozeman MT ticket was $89. EW with no baggage fees. Now that that route has been operating for a little while, the ticket price has increased and they have added those huge baggage fees.

Allegiant's flights are not only cheap, even with all the fees, but having a direct flight to places like Billings or Bozeman Montana is amazing. Flying through Denver or Salt Lake is time consuming and often poses weather delays and canceled flights.
