I still have my doubts that this will actually work. Not so much because of the destinations but because of the base being Niederrhein, a low class Ryanair capable airport. And if V Bird wants to set a new standard (European JetBlue) then that airport out in the boondocks for sure will not help much.

some inside information I just heard:
A F/A applied for the job at V-Bird.
She had to go to Maastricht for the interview. In the invitationletter she received she was told to bring her own chair (...)
During interview she was told that the company really doesn't care how she would work on board. If you don't wanna smile, don't! if you don't wanna say goodbye to a pax, don't! "We don't care how you do your job, as long as you do it..."
She found the whole situation so bizarre, she decided not to want to work for such a company.

Well, I think they will make the same mistake as GOODjet. Too much capacity for specific markets. How do they want to sell some 900 daily seats between NRN and MUC? Even if they would sell all tickets for 1 EUR plus tax, I doubt planes would get full ... I think they could easily do well starting up with just one or two aircraft instead of three and operating a more intelligent schedule with less frequencies ... If they really want to operate this timetable, I'd give them 2 months ...
