So recently Allegiant Air announced they will be flying the new to them 757 between SMX-HNL beginning in Nov.

Looking at charts, I was curious if it would be easy to predict the routing. Why? Because I am curious if they will be heading north which would take them over my neighborhood (near Oceano Airport), fingers crossed.
So typically runway 30 is in use, so departing to the NW, would they go up to MQO then out to AUDIA? That is opposite direction of the preferred direction.
The BUELT ONE, takes them SE to RZS, then they can go out to DINTY.

So, can you fly the opposite direction as the preferred single direction route, or would they still take off 30, fly the left turning BUELT ONE Dep, to RZS, make the hard right and then out over the Pacific? The take off mins. posted can get you to MQO.
