With all the recent talk about howCVG's days as a Delta hub are numbered, attracting new airlines, etc... I wanted to know if CVG would be the kind of market in which a new carrier would be successful.

Does Delta care enough anymore? Would they fight it?
What terminals/planes/business model would the new carrier most likely use?
How expensive is it to operate from the airport?
Are there routes on which they could easily succeed?
Is there potential, or do we have to wait and see?

Thanks for your input in advance.

Why would anyone in their right mind invest in a startup? Look at recent history. Even in good times they can't make it work. Carriers are still very guarded about the future, though the cycle will eventually turn up. Still, has there been a successful startup since B6?

I couldn't have said it better myself if I tried. If anyone was to start a new airline, why would they want to pick a market like CVG? I know PIT was considered as a location for a startup (if anyone remembers "Victory"), and all it pretty much was was a "paper" or "pipe dream" airline. It never really got itself together. In fact, shortly after hearing about it, there really was no further info on that start up.

There was only one that I could think of tho, Virgin America, but I think it's at the very least experiencing quite a bit of turbulence...

They set up shop out of SFO, which is a big O&D pool... CVG, PIT, CLE, STL, etc, not so much. CLE does have a small CO hub, but nothing more...



Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Ahh..thank you. I was racking my brain, I knew one startup survived past a couple years but for the life of me couldn't recall Virgin.

Virgin Blue... which would probably come under the Virgin Brand
