I see that Bluefox are still saying they are planning on offering 767-300 luxury from STN to JFK, LAX, IAD and SFO. Their website is:

http://www.bluefoxairlines.com.

They claim they will offer 2-2-2 seating on their 763's at 50 inch and given that they are still making noises, does anyone think that that they will get off the ground (even if they have got that old facist Lord Tebbit as chairman!).

The websites been up for YEARS now, is it still a current proposition ?

Depending on the fares they have in mind, a good transatlantic connection into STN could be a gold mine, especially if the timings allow for connections to enough of the LCC flights on to the continong. There won't be proper interlining with the LCC's, but it might be in BlueFox's interest to assist with baggage transfer and the provision of a transfers desk if it meant that it could get more pax.

P.S. he IS a ghastly old fascist - nicely put.

I doubt whether Bluefox would want to be associated with what they, no doubt, would see as "the scum" of LCC's at STN.

If they are offering premium services from the US to STN then I doubt whether they would want to connect with LCC's such as FR/U2, even if it did increase custom.

JGPH1A, glad you agreed with my view on Lord Tebbit. I would avoid the airline purely on the fact that he is chairman and his ultra right-wing views!

Intersting domain ownership info considering they're appearing to be UK-based.

That was my first thought too, but it would be a shame to miss out on flying what would appear at first glance to be a a superior service, simply because one disagreed with the views of someone who actually takes no active part in the running of the airline. After all, if we disagreed with the politics of the owners of an airline, would any of us fly on CAAC or Libyan Arab, or Saudia ?

(He's still ghastly though).

... this one appears to be right up there with Crystal Airways and the new TransCaribbean

It's a nonstarter.

The website is probably a throwback to before Sept 11th (which really put an end to plans)

If Lord Tebbit was Chair, at least they'd have one with some experience of operating aircraft from the pointy end...

Diesel is correct -- this website has been there since long before 9/11. It won't see the light of day.
