If you have ever dreamed on having an airline, this is the right post:
Make up your own airline, including name, base airport, livery, destination on each continent, fleet, with what airline your like to codeshare, in what alliance you like to be, and describe you product in general and prices.
My airline would be called "Prague Air", blue/white/red livery with a photo of each of Prague´s attractions on the tail (sort of like F9 has with west animals). I would be based in PRG (duhhh) and fly long-hual only:
US: ORD, JFK, IAH, MIA, LAX and SFO.
Canada: YYZ, YVR
Latin America: GRU, GIG, MEX, CCS (maybe EZE as well)
Africa: CAI, JNB
Asia: HKG, ICN, PEK, NRT, BKK, SIN and KUL+continuation to SYD or MEL
My fleet would include B777-200/300s, B747-400s and possibly MD-11s and in the future, 787s
I would like to join SkyTeam and as extra, codeshare with UA, AC, TAM, MH, SQ and Qantas.
I would like to have a little (only like 5 seats) First Class with great service and superior meals (I would possibly cater from Marriot). Then a max.25 seat bussines class, with good meals great service and all what a good bussines class has. The rest would be economy, with superior services as many airlines today. The crew would be chosen by me personally to be specially good-looking and polite so passengers would feel happy. Meals would be superior as well. And AVOD would be offered in economy, as well as in bussines and First.
Example: PRG-JFK-PRG: First- starting at USD 5000
Bussines: starting at USD 1500
Economy: starting at USD 600
I hope my dream and you dream of having our own airlines will become true one day.
B 737-300/-400/-500 (soon to be phased out)
Don't know where the markts for those planes should be but in my dream they are there. All in all a high quality airline with aa high ammount of pax which were offered the world best First- Business- and Economy Class. And to fulfil my dream there will be two main airports in this country.
1. in the capital - very very big
2. in the second biggest city - very big and like Kai Tak
3. in the tourist area with Saint Maarten Style.
So, no wI'm going to bed to dream about my fictional country.

It would be high tech. Every seat would have the most advaced communications and entertainment systems.
Each seat would contain very similar functions no matter if you pay for first or economy. Economy would be all economy plus. Business would be layflat. First would consits of private cabins with a door, bed, desk, 26" TV
Join Skyteam to hit more of South America, Europe and North America
(Maybe we would have a special A389 that flies around the world like a cruise liner. It would have 24 fully loaded suite rooms (showers & Toilets) on the upper deck and rear main deck. On the main dek there would be a dinning area, entertainment lounge, classrooms/meeting rooms. Kitchen/galley would be in the lower hold.) If the 747ADV comes out... then we would go with that.

"Pan-Am" style "APPLE AIR" down the side of the plane with a big red apple on the tail
IND would serve every major U.S. airport with "express" service to smaller airports. Int'l service would be to major european destinations.
Sec. hub: BOS, SEA
These airports would serve all of the destinations in there region and Int'l service depending on what coast of the U.S. the lie on.
Would be a mix LCC/Full service, with the higher service on flights of 3.5 hours or longer, almost completely the realm of the 757s and A330s... Maybe I'm not as ambitious with mine as the others, but I'm satisfied with it...
