A couple of years ago a new start up called Crystal Airways was looking to start 757 luxury service called "Crystal Class" based out of Tampa. This was all after 9/11. Anybody know anything about this other than the fact that it has never officially gotten off the ground? I see they still have a webpage http://crystalairways.com

This venture has seemed to have died, with good reason. Luxury air travel is gone for the moment and maybe even the furture.


Sad....I would have loved for Tampa to be a hub for once  Sad



Looking forward to the new AA

I think their c/s was designed by Lila Design.

I love that look.

This might be a good time to start service though if USAir goes under and therefore there plans with FLL. If ATA is looking to dump their 757's and Crystal is looking to aquire 757's I wonder if the timing could be right?

Crystal seems to be brought up every quarter or so, and has been for about the last 4 years or so. There were a number of other "startup" sites such as theirs. We had almost a unanimous consensus here on A.Net that they were nothing more than elaborate hoaxes, if not fancy fantasy sites built by bored but Web talented teens.

I don't take Crystal any more seriously than http://www.skyhighairlines.com.

Using the possible demise of USAirways as a reason for why airline "X" should succeed is flawed thinking. The truth is, there is still far too much capacity in the U.S..
The market needs contraction, not expansion.

The livery is unusual to me. A cross between Continental and Aeroflot. But I somehow like it.
