I was looking through 'SpeedNews,' an online data base for commercial aircraft available for sale/lease, and also a place for professionals to post ads for aircraft need for purchase/dry- or wet-lease/etc. and I found this ad:
Posted: June 28, 2004
Commercial Aircraft Wanted: Ten (10)747/400's (1990 - 1997 vintage) wanted by Las Vegas based "121" domestic airline startup, now in the certification process. Must be suitable for high density seating. FAMILY AIRLINES INCORPORATED
Tel: 702 214-4232
Fax: 702 548-5608
That sounds very ambitious. Has anyone else heard of this "proposed" startup. Here's the link for anyone interested. Scroll down the page a little bit and you'll see it.
This one looks like it could be the same people behind it again judging by their website, it even uses 10 year old photos of the above aircraft.
Their concept? - low fares, using 747-400s on domestic routes within the USA, don't see this attempt getting much further than the first!
SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION V. MYRON BARRY MICHAELS AND
HOLLY S. MICHAELS
Civil Action No. CV 95-2499 LGB (BQRx)
The Securities and Exchange Commission ("Commission")
announced that the United States District Court for the Central
District of California ordered a permanent injunction,
disgorgement of $363,306.44 and civil penalties against Myron
Barry Michaels (aka Barry Michaels) and Holly S. Michaels on June
19, 1996. The order issued by Judge Lourdes G. Baird found that
the husband and wife couple, residents in Las Vegas, Nevada,
participated in the fraudulent offering of $5 million of
unregistered stock of a discount start-up airline, Family
Airlines, Inc. ("Family") in 1992 and 1993, before they were
ousted from the airline by a group of Family investors.

SegmentKing, that is VERY interesting stuff you got there. Then what in the world (or how in the world) is he able to attempt this again, or would this lead you to believe it's an internet hoax? I'm definately confused but a little bit intrigued now.
