A couple of months ago, there was an advert running on the main page about investing in a new startup airline. It was linked to a website (http://www.nutriciussystems.co.uk/group/index_files/Page495.htm) and for £1 a share, you could invest.
I was wondering if anyone from here actually invested? I got the prospectus sent through, but was a bit dubious about it.
Is there any other news about its current development either?
I thought on reading the new information about the Alpha1 situation that it could possibly have been an investment drive on behalf of the investors investing in Alpha1. Im not sure, though they both seem to have 6 destinations.

The prospectus is very interesting; they've come up with many of the routes that I think would also work well. What I don't understand on the other hand is why fly with such a small aircraft. Why not an ATR or a DH8 instead of the J31? Don't see how average costs are going to be very low with just 19 pax.

Would "Britain Airways" be allowed under the applicable law as it sounds very familiar to "British Airways". My understanding is that you cannot use a name for a similar serivce that sounds very much like an existing brand, e.g. "Twax" instead "Twix" for a candy bar or "Tasco" for a supermarket.
