Brilliant.

But for the meanwhile, the livery seems quite appealing.



Good flying

Ever hear of Laker Skytrain? or PeoplExpress? (or a hundred others) Actually - I don't see how the can be called LC with full service and IFE? Where actually do they have lower costs?

Well the lowest fare I beleive is £260 Return! So that to me is like it is a lower cost. Meanwhile, CX are charging £430 return from LHR. I think this will be a success.

Thanks

Hi Guys!

What do you think about the planned services to CGN and Berlin? Will they be profitable? I guess CGN would be more profitable than Berlin.

Your thoughts?

Regards. Tom

Ahh, gotcha!

Well in that case, they make you pay for drinks so i would assume they would be sky high and you will need a drink on such a long flight. Also the aircraft may be pretty squeezed.

Thanks

Another thought!

Will there be any codeshare agreement or partnership with 4U in CGN and SXF, and with Easyjet in SXF?

What will LH say if passenger will fly with Oasis to Berlin or Cologne and get connected to LH Low cost airline 4U who will fly them to European destinations?

I guess they never would allow it.

I believe that drinks will be included. Alcohol will not be free. As for seating, the seat pitch is fairl decent. I can't remember what it is, but it is no smaller than CX's 31inch economy pitch. Not sure about business.

Oasis will be operating out of a very expensive airport. I cannot imagine that staff costs will be much lower for their HK office staff. As for pilots, although they do not have housing, their salaries are actually not at all bad.

Low fares and full planes do not = profitable!

I've always had the thought... if there are 278 odd Y class pax, and only a little amount of business with no first... then would the overall revnue be higher on a full plane? Besides, NOT everyone is paying only £260 return.

According to their website, Oasis will charge economy for soft drinks and alcohol (complimetry in business). Also "deluxe amenity kits" are available for purchase. However, headsets are still complimentry for both classes Big grin

Besides they allow up to 23kg of baggage! That's 2 more than CX and the same as BA i think.

I'm interested in the effect of the prices on the legacy airliners flying London - Hong Kong. Will they lower their prices too? Or will they stay in superisolation and continue ripping us off?

Well that depends on what the cost is to operate these full planes. Would you really think a bunch of experienced aviation businessmen would start up an airline which they think will fail?

Guys you checked out thier retro style uniform?  boggled 


Anyways, enough of me typing... I'm flying with Oasis this December to test them Big grin Look out for my trip report.

It could be just the perception of lower costs that get the punters on the plane. Isn't that the way VS started?

Mind you, HKG-London is getting rather crowded nowadays ... and I don't think CX would take too kindly to a new competitor. Wonder how long Oasis an last if NZ, VS, CX, BA and QF all start offering ultra-cheap economy fares - these are all full-service carriers with a good service reputation.

The other thing that the above mentioned carriers can do is offer bonus miles at there normal fares and that would attract people to fill the seats.

It remains to be seen for this type of route, but by simply having a carrier plying it that is perceived as cheap to fly and offers a nonstop, may indeed increase the demand. The airlines who offer connecting service may be the ones with the most to lose (such as KE, OZ, QR, EK, GF, UL, etc.). QR is offering a return as low as HK$2770 plus tax HKG-LHR-HKG, with a connection in DOH, through the Hong Kong travel agents. A comparably-priced or even cheaper nonstop surely would grab some of that market.

We've also seen Premium Economy do quite well in that part of the world--NZ had to up the number of seats in that section right after their cabin refit to accommodate everyone, and BR does a brisk business to/from Asia with their Evergreen Deluxe class. Oasis' Business Class may very well siphon off a number of passengers who'd like some extra room, but don't want or need a flat bed, or who are unable to afford full Business class.

Can they fill up enough seats to make the venture profitable? We won't know until they take flight.

Just offering full mileage might be enough for some. The lowest fares on BA and QF offer very meager takings mileage-wise.

Excellent!

Never be fooled into believing that something will be successful just because someone is willing to throw a lot of money at it.

If this flies the Kangaroo route, it will attract those European backpackers who fill the hostels around the country here. It would also attract those English people with larger families and cannot afford the BA / QF fare to go back to the UK and visit relatives.

I do not know if that is enough to make it last.

Yes but before the demand increase benefits Oasis they might have gone out of business already ... only they know how deep are their pockets and just how low their operating costs are and whether they can sustain a discount price war with the established majors.

It's a shame Backpacker Express never got off the ground, be interesting to see how that would've gone with exactly this market.

Wow how exciting to see Oasis starting up, and the new livery. I am excited to see them here at OAK. Some people think that low fares and full planes will not work, but I think otherwise. I wish them the best, they will have excellent connections at OAK though out other destinations out west and to the East Coast out of OAK. The exciting part is that the new concessions should open at OAK soon, making this Airport look like a real airport now. I will have to fly WN to try out the T2 extension.
