Hooters Air quitting Allentown, Scranton
  Low-cost carrier Hooters Air of Myrtle Beach, S.C., is ending service at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Lehigh Valley international airports, airport officials said. "Hooters is ceasing service pretty much everywhere," said Barry Centini, director of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. Airline president Mark Peterson said Thursday evening he was "not ready to comment." He did immediately return a phone message Friday.

   At the Lehigh Valley International Airport near Allentown, airport board members said last month that Hooters owed the airport $1 million for fuel. Hooters Air is ending service to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton by March 26 and at the Lehigh Valley airport by April 17.
