I like the idea of giving planes women's names so I would name them after women I've slept with - being the arrogant jerk that I am. Unfortunately I have dealt with 3 Jennifers, 2 Ashleys and 2 Nadias. So that really cuts down the potential size of my fleet to 18 planes. I suppose I could follow the EK model and go for size over frequency and get a nice fleet of 380s going. Alternatively I could always use this as an excuse to sleep around a little more

Well for years I have always toyed around on paper if I owned an airline. I had hubs listed, where I would fly annd what aircraft I would have and it would be based in RNO. I would have call centers in small cities instead of larger cities. I wanted to name it Blue Yonder, but then Jetblue appeared in the industry I would have to name it something else.
Maybe everyone here on A.net can pitch in money and we can start our own airline...

I like the idea of naming them after women. Back in the early 70's the old National Airlines named their planes after flight attendants (supposedly) and their TV commercials would show a nice looking flight attendant who would say, "I'm 'Jennifer' (or Barbara, or Cindy, etc.); fly me to Miami."
