Sunday New York Times Travel section included a question about LCC on long-haul flights. Article mentioned Zoom airlines..with a 205 dollar RT fare between London and Toronto; and Oasis Hong Kong , which will offer OW
LGW-Hong Kong service from 141 dollars plus tax--on 747-400's with IFE and hot meals..("gourmet" service is extra.) Anyone know anything about either carrier, or anything similar?
("Styles" section of the paper had a great article on fractional jet ownership....((sighs, and goes about his life)).

Quoting YULYMX (Reply 3): i think they lease there 767 from both BA and AF they have 4 767 and looking to had some more
There aircraft are former AF and KLM 763s and they do indeed have 4 in their fleet. Expect this to increase though as they have just announced expansion plans for next year, mainly between the UK and US.
