Folks,
My first post on Anet after lurking around for years. Looks like TexDravid's prayers will finally be answered. Check http://www.everestairways.com/ for a start up airline to server MAA/BLR/HYD/COK. If you ask me this looks more like a charter company than a real airline. Hope the efforts bear fruition and I will be able to fly NYC-VIE-COK.

The website gives me motion sickness, and lags my computer.
I dont trust airlines with poor websites like.
Just my 2 cents here anyway.



The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only

Is this airline for real? I have to agree with FlyKev that the website doesn't project the image of a serious airline. It looks like something that some kid cooked up for a high school class.

Shoddy website usually = shoddy airline. Damn cheeky of the Indians to use Everest in the name of an airline, considering it's in Nepal - you know that little patch of mountains that never surrendered to the Brits...

12A whenever possible.

This must be a joke right? A child can design a better website. The site doesn't mention any info on their service and operation. Just says we are going to fly to these cities with so we can make some money off the rising wealthy middle class in India. Need some more info on the website. I'ts O.K to copy other airline websites once in a while. Try Virgin America or something.

....to be fair to them, nowhere does it say that they plan to stop at LHR, could be LGW, MAN or BHM. Also VIE is mentioned. Equipment A330-300.

Reading from the newpaper article, they plan once weekly service on:
ORD-VIE-COK-MAA-ORD
ORD-VIE-BLR-MAA-ORD
ORD-VIE-HYD-MAA-ORD
...................................starting in May 2006

sorry no website for the regional paper published out of Philadelphia.
As far as the website is concerned, you have to start some where.

Equipment A330-300

The introduction shows a tristar, followed by a view from an A340 cabin (at least an artist impression of it).

Seems these folks don't know the difference between a tristar, an A340 and an A330.

Some airline this..



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

These jokers need to learn their IATA codes before they expect anyone to take them seriously.

Actually they do ... right in their main page - it says

Stopover at Heathrow/Vienna. Of course they probably wouldnt know LHR if it bit them in the ankle, but I think they got lucky with VIE  Smile

LOL. ....or they might be knowing more than any of us!!! May be they have inside knowledge that the EU-US open skies will be signed, sealed and delivered by mid year....

However, I concur, my vote is with the earlier supposition. On their route planning page they have "LON" for London, so other airports are possible.

The website starts off with what looks like a Lockheed Tristar, and then an A340... so what do they plan on flying. And according to their organization page, they've been around for 2.5 years... looks like a paper airline to me.

I was looking at it and thought, "That plane is BA....they don't have permission for this, do they?"

The map is also not an original graphic. I have seen that map with those colors in that regional breakdown someplace before...

Yep here it is... Found a bunch more.

The side images are stock photos and not original.

Wow....looks like a couple Copyright laws have been broken here.

Three founding members. Did a little research to see if this is real. All Indian, one is in Christian Charity, the second a converner of NORKA (Non-Resident Keralites Affairs)..what's that, and the third one was hard to put a finger on. Too many Koshy Georges. But the one that fits is Karela Graduate, Co-founder and President of Indus Systems in Toronto.

Crap website anyway.



Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

Well, they'll need o get FAA approval and DoT permission to fly, and that isn't the easiest thing to do. I personally think that this is as hair-brained an idea as the Kerala Government's start-up airline (so what is the state is bankrupt, we must have an airline which gives 40kg allowances!). And why would anyone fly this carrier if they can fly LH, AF, KL, BA which will give far better service unless it was like supa'-dupa' cheap.
I mean just read this gem...
The Business model is to blend the successful economic model of airlines such as Southwest and Jet Blue in the US and the high quality customer service model of Jet Airways in India to produce an highly successful and profitable airline.
Wait and watch!

This is definitely a fake. The website gives it away. No professional company would have a website like this. The site says nothing about the airlines operation, just where they are going. Even then I would doubt any investor in their right mind would help finance this startup. The only way this could be true is that those "Founders", with no credentials, have a lot of cash in their pockets.

Sorry your statement is utter rubbish. Bermuda2 is a treaty between the UK & US governments, IT DOES NOT APPLY TO AIRLINES OF OTHER COUNTRIES!!! only to UK & US airlines.

Indian airlines already have traffic rights UK-US. They are currently allocated to AI. To determin if there is scope for another Indian carrier you would have to consult the UK/India bilateral treaty AND the India/US treaty NOT BII, its irrelevant, in this case.

I have no comment on the reality or otherwise of the new carrier.

Oh my. Who on earth designed that thing? They have got to stop letting people loose with design software.

The main part of the website says 'our targeted airports'. What does that mean? Do they drop the pax off on a low-level chute run?

...and I've never heard of Heathrow/Vienna before either!  Wink

....because AI (and KU) were flying between the UK and US long before B2 came into the picture...other airline's aren't permitted to do the same.
