V Bird website has now opened at http://www.vbird.com offering information about the airline and its routes and timetables. Great to see V Bird in Helsinki!

just visited their website...still quite ugly but I think they will optimize their webpages soon. They offer some great fares and their destinations are quite OK.

hi,

i´ve been trying their website for the last weeks and lst night finaly i got acces.

It´s your typical LCC site with easy booking system.

What i do like about them is that the quoted prices are INCLUDING ALL TAXES

so what you see is what you get!

The destinations aren´t all that exciting:

From Niederrhein to:

Nice
Munich
Berlin
Vienna
Helsinki
Maastricht

I hope more destinations will follow, I'll try them out for sure!

Taxes aren't included.

It's like Ryanair booking system, it's powered by Navitaire.

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.

That said I do anyways want to give them a try.

I just noticed that V Bird will offer MUC-HEL (via NRN) and also NRN-Maastrich-NCE so they will try to have NRN work as a hub from the start. I guess that is the best they can do.

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 ...
