I'd start a few major domestic routes with some used 737s, say Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Inverness and Belfast. Then I'd sell out to Ryanair for a ton of $$$ and start an airline where I want!
The sky is the limit as long as you can stay there

I'd like to do something between low-cost and full service that served major airports with a mix of leisure and business destinations using aircraft other than the same old same old B73x and A319/320. Perhaps some Avro RJ100 and/or B717 aircraft would be nice.
Rest in peace Duo Airways who tried something very similar from BHX and EDI with CR2 and CR7 but didn't make it pay and folded at the end of April 2004 - always a pleasure to fly VB!
Forget A vs B - Give me E or BAe any day of the week!
