I always like the Landmark Airlines from Microsoft Flightsim 2004. It is a global airline and keeps the livery the same but changes the image on the tail to things like Mt.Rushmore or the Coliseum etc. It could theoretically fly anywhere with different tail schemes representing the different regions it flew to. It is of course fictional because you couldn't have one airline flying througout the whole World.

First: I would build an airline that has proper Y and C cabins on intra-European flights, just like in the rest of the world: regular economy-seats in Y and proper big reclining seats in C, even if that means a fixed number of seats in both classes.
Second: Like in Thailand, Malaysia and other parts of S.E Asia, I would use Wide-body equipment on high density routes. There's a whole lot of flying going on in Europe and if one can fill a number of A330's in S.E. Asia, so can one in Europe. If that means less daily flights it even serves the environment.
Third, there must be a fare-structure that can support this, but if low-cost airlines can survive on the fares they are using now I'm sure a similar system can also be applied on an airline operating -say- B77-200's in a 2-class configuration.
Of course it's all just a thought but it would be nice to travel in a Europe with an airline like this.
