Probably Hanworth (where I live).
Also I would dedicate the a/c to a famous person or event that should be remebered (e.g. Diana, Concorde..)

I came. I saw. I conquered

I think he means naming schemes, like KLM's city of etc, or PanAm's Clipper of....

I would think it depends on what kind of airline I'm starting, but if I get to pick, I might name it after famous authors. It's neutral enough and there are plenty of them to go around!

Hmmm...'Maiden Crawley'... not really much of a ring to that Big grin

I'd name them after the area they were based... 'Lady Solent...'

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  Wink

New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

I'd name them after my destination cities & if I flew anywhere international, do the city's name in that country's language (like "Ciudad de Mexico" for MEX)

City of Chicago, Springfield, Rochester, Duluth, Fargo, New York, Washington, Denver...maybe a Spirit of something...

At RochestAir, all fares are one way, all travel is ticketless, and a Saturday night stay is never required. Connecting flights match non-stop flights, redefining the way small town travelers travel. RochestAir was founded in 2004 and flies the Boeing 737-600 aircraft as well as the Bombardier CRJ-700.

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."

Ah, those were the days!

My other home is a Piper Cherokee 180C
