I saw an advertisement today for the new Irish airline Jetgreen -http://www.flyjetgreen.com - it seems to be going against the trend of European LCCs by having a first class section. Its even got a dress code!
First Class passengers, including children, are required to observe our strict dress code which is smart-casual (no jeans, shorts,
t-shirts, trainers, sandals, beach or sports-wear.)
Seems strange for a low cost airline flying primarily to leisure destinations (Malaga, Alicante, Faro) to have first class and a dress code. Anyone know of any other airlines with a dress code?
Moreover it seems to have a lot of frills for a low cost carrier (3 course meal in Economy) though technically I'm not sure it could be classified as a carrier seeing as Icelandair will operate their flights (complete with FI codes).

Ah goody another cheap European rip-off of a great American airline. First Continental Airways, now this... I think if I should require travel from Ireland to a leisure destination I'll fly Aer Lingus...

Also, when you look into "Standard class" you find the following
Complimentary seat allocation at check-in
They make it sound like they are doing you a favor and it's free! Who charges for seat allocation (excluding LCC that just don't allocate seats at check-in)? And a dress code? Do they actually WANT passengers? You won't find many business travelers on a LCC operating a leisure route.
Other than that, the lettering looks a lot like JetBlue.
