This will make 11 daily flights between Los Angeles and London, and at least one affordable for many people. Great addition.

Does this mean San Jose is out of the loop, or does this have nothing to do with it???

Dependent on handling, but T-2 quite possible.

No surprise that MaxJet chose LAX over ONT. It's much closer to a much bigger pool of the business pax they're after. Why would they put themselves at a huge competitive disadvantage to BA, UA, and Virgin? LAX is near where people want to go. ONT isn't.

Whom is the handler you went with?

Generally cost at TBIT are higher unless if you join the airline consortium which itself can have costly upfront fees to but drive lower long terms fees. Usually this is however hard to amortize with low passenger volume which can make T-2 quite attractive.

Great for Maxjet, no surprise really LAX being the second biggest fish in the USA for inetrnational travel after JFK. Where rae the extra 767's coming from, are they ex-QF ?

Good news for MY. But isn't their in-flight product slightly inferior (is that the right word?) compared to AA / BA / VS etc? I mean seat-wise but I suppose their product is J-only... is that an advantage or do pax prefer having a flat bed? I'd certainly rather fly MY over say E0.

Eos - E0 really, really need to expand or just do something already!! Surely they must be making next to no money? I wonder who will be around (if any) in say 10 years time - Eos? l'Avion? (!) MaxJet? Silverjet? I know I'd like to see either MY or Y7, although they're probably the only likely survivors anyway!

The in-flight product is not what you would find on BA or VS, but BA and VS charge a lot more than US$699 each way from LAX to London. Compared to Y class, MaxJet is a joy to fly on for such a small premium.

Awesome, I actually will be flying MaxJet from Stansted to Vegas and then flying southwest from vegas to LAX coming up in June since I relaly wanted to try MaxJet and the price was unbeatable. Great to know that they will now be flying direct to LAX for september.

I think Eos have fociused on adding frequency rather than adding routes

Eos is not at all like MAXjet. I suppose really Maxjet is Premium Economy with Better seats, Eos is First the others are in between. The main problem I have with booking Maxjet is reliability. The delays and cancellations are higher than the other "single class upgraded" product.

I cant agree more. My partner is now a FA for Eos and knowing both products, E0 sells itself as a Business Class (almost 1st class) product where MAXjet perceives itself as, like you said, a premium economy/pseudo Business class product.

I think E0, already a 3 flights a day, is moreso on the slow and seatdy course to growth. Thoughf speculation has it that CDG/ORY, ZRH, or Sao Paulo are high on the radar. I think we'll see some growth soon. Their 4th and 5th aircraft should be online soon.

As for MAXjet, I think LAX-STN is a great next step though I would have prefered to have seen STN-BOS or STN-MIA. But that's just me.

MAXjet has (or will have) UK based Inflight Crew as well as JFK and IAD based Crews. Eos only has JFK (US) based Inflight Crews.

Hopefully. But one of San Jose's problems is the fact that it is located between two of America's main airports.

JFK is 1st, LAX 2nd, MIA 3rd, and no other airports come close. Those three airports even switch around. In the past few years, each of them has come in 1st at least once, though lately I think JFK took a commanding lead.

Also, as for the other Maxjet destination they are set to announce by year's end: supposedly, it is going to be Boston or Miami.

Wow, I am surprise MAXjet is expanding out of LA. Too many competition with other carries already operating daily service to London. Wasn’t that the reason they suspended IAD service due to lack of competition from United? Their operation is only 3x weekly and they fly into Stansted in stead of Heathrow that make business less attractive.

Interesting on how they are going to compete with other carries here at LAX:
American Airlines:
AA 136 777 LAXLHR
AA 134 777 LAXLHR

Air New Zealand:
NZ 002 777 LAXLHR

British Airways:
BA 278 744 LAXLHR
BA 282 744 LAXLHR
BA 268 744 LAXLHR

Virgin Atlantic
VS 008 744 LAXLHR
VS 024 346 LAXLHR

United Airlines:
UA 934 777 LAXLHR

When I was in San Francisco a few days ago it was on the local TV network KRON4 that San Jose was going ahead, and they had it leaked to them as an exclusive!

Obviously the TV News stations in the US are like the British tabloid papers.

Actually, since this thread is addressing the viability of Maxjet to successfully Enplane passengers at LAX, this Reference may be more appropriate (Table 17 (Jan-Aug 2006)): http://www.bts.gov/press_releases/20...54_06/html/bts054_06.html#table_16
