I know it's been brushed past on here previously, but I was wondering if anyone has info on "FlyBlu", who are apparently planning to start B767 services between Birmingham International and 3 Florida destinations. Personally I think it's just someone mucking about- any ideas?
Also, was just wondering about the following two, which I heard about earlier this year:
-Dreamcatcher Airways: Read on Pprune was planned to be a B747 operation from LGW serving VFR markets (just the name sounds dodgy to me!)
-Asia Express: B767 from BHX to India (beleive it had something to do with one of the already established Khazakstan airlines).
At flyBlu we have reviewed every aspect of the scheduled flying experience to develop a truly remarkable product at an affordable price. Bookable January and launching in April 04, flyBlu will serve Birmingham to Sanford, FortLauderdale and Clearwater/St.Petersburg.

Can't recollect seeing them in the CAA Official Record series as having applied for a license to either become an airline or for actual route licences (both of which I would have thought be quite important for a British airline!).
Besides, just to remind everyone Freshaer actually attended an IATA slot conference in Vancouver...so I wouldn't read too much into them being at an exhibition.
