Hi All-
This is My first post here on A.Net, although I Visit A.Net numerous times a day, that is when work allows.
I Have No previous Experience in Aviation, although I fly GA planes for fun, and I travel Often for Work.
Aside from the Massive Capital required just to Procure Aircraft, Overcome Regulatory Issues, and Insurance, is there room in the Market (U.S) for an Airline that offers a Premium, Exclusive Product to the public, and even Large Companies
that is Owned by its Members or Employees, and Service is Exclusive to its Members (I am Just Asking out of Curiosity. No Plans to Start an Airline...Yet).
I Hear of Start-Ups cumming about all the time, But 9 out of 10 times they are shutdown, even before they have a chance to Fail!
The Only Airline that has started from Nothing (And please correct me if I am wrong) is jetBlue, who built up a Massive Credit Line, with Various Large Financial Firms. They Were able to have enough Capitol to acquire New airplanes, hire very qualified staff, and had reserve for them to build a presence in the U.S.
Have Any of you ever Dreamed of one day starting an Airline?

Thought's Please,

Regards

HIRSCH777

I guess you need to clarify what you mean by "premium, exclusive product". Do you mean an all-Premium (F/J) setup in the aircraft? Or do you mean a coach airline with a higher level of service, such as jetBlue?

Valid Point.

Yes, an F/J Setup, and a Higher Level of Service. Not Talking about Lie-Flat seats on the entire Aircraft, but a well Balanced Product of high class service, like Pan Am, and a Premium Physical Product.

Im my opinion there is no real market for a premium heavy airline in the US or internationally. Airlines today have become nothing more than a form of public transportation and value is the new reality. However, the flying public demands a high level of service at a bargin basement price.

This sounds a little bit like EOS Airlines, Silverjet, and MAXjet.. none of those did too well.

OpenSkies is still around.

From what I understand you're pushing for an airline that has the physical characteristics of those airlines (seating wise), but operates exclusively as a charter airline? Like a posh North American Airlines?

This might just be the most honest and truthful post I've ever read on A-Net.

So, you want to make a few million running such a start-up airline then ?
Better start off with a few billion, then
