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?
TPAnx  Yeah sure
("Styles" section of the paper had a great article on fractional jet ownership....((sighs, and goes about his life)).


I read the news today..oh boy

Zoom is pretty good but the fare that you quote seems to be on away ticket...
with all taxes from YUL you can get to CDG or LGW for about 450/525$ roud trip

I've heard that Zoom is not that bad and recently revealed plans to expand in the the UK-US market. They use 767 aircraft and have a nice web site.

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.

Finally a LCC with wideobodies. It is only a matter of time before they spread and start eating others respected airlines share
