my idea was actually the basis for a very sucessful airline ops class project.
while not revealing the name i'll tell you this. i wanted to fly business pax only. i could care less about those that want a $69 fare to KFLL. i want those pax who expect five star service from an airline. real meals, real silverware (no plastic crap), real inflight service, real seats (not seats that are 10 inches wide). i would serve the major business cities in the US, Europe and Asia. what i would prefer to fly would be B737-700/800 BBJs. they have the range that i would require while maintaining a small, private aircraft feeling. oh yea, i'd have at least a 50 or 60 inch pitch...
