What would your airline name be? What aircraft would you use? Boeing, airbus or both? Would you be a low-fare airline? What would be your hub(s)? Would you offer international flights? Where to?

My airline:

Golden Air
I would most likely use Boeing aircraft.
My hubs would be in California. LAX, SFO & SAN.
It would be nice to be a low-fare airline!
I would mainly offer West Coast service, but I would like to offer international service to the most profitable cities from the West Coast. i.e. LHR, CDG, MEX, YVR, YYZ, NRT etc.
