    Changes Coming To Flying J

    June 25, 2010 by Truckdrivernews · 2 Comments 


    As you well know back in July 2009 Flying J announced that they were merging with Pilot Travel Centers because Flying J had filed bankruptcy. Flying J filed for Chapter 11 protections on December 22nd, 2008, after a precipitous drop in oil prices and disruption in the credit markets brought to bear significant short-term pressure on the company’s liquidity position.

    Just recently (June 3rd, 2010) Flying J announced that they now accept Comdata fuel cards. “We are pleased an agreement has been made that will enable Flying J to immediately accept Comdata cards at our locations,” said Flying J President and CEO, Crystal Maggelet. “This arrangement will provide a new payment method which will enable more motor carriers and professional drivers to have access to Flying J’s fuel network and state‐of‐the‐art highway hospitality services.”

    Now today (June 25th, 2010) another announcement has been made from Flying J, it is concerning the E-Store and the merger with Pilot. Due to changing business needs and the pending Pilot merger, we are closing the Flying J E-Store, effective Thursday, July 1, 2010. You can still use unexpired loyalty points at Flying J restaurants and at Flying J delis in locations without a restaurant.

    According to the Flying J E-Store website look for details on the Flying J website,, and Loyalty Online in the coming weeks. As always, if I see or hear anything before I will announce it here as well.

      I would like to see a Flying J Truck Stop/Pilot Truck Stop located in Deming New Mexico. Deming needs a boost in it’s economy and this would be a good start. Please come and take a look at what we have to offer and get in touch with the leadership of this community to get something started. (Thankyou) John H. Wiebe
