Good Evening to all. I have just received a phone call from a friend of mine that has been contacted by MaxJet for a position as Flight Attendant based in Las Vegas. In addition the person she spoke with at MaxJet said that her knowledge of an Asian language is very important to MaxJet's plans. The person she talked to at MaxJet said that they are looking for Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese speaking Flight Attendants.
Does anyone have any additional news about the new MaxJet Las Vegas base?
Does anyone have any additional information about expansion to Asia?

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 3): Speaking of Maxjet, its looking more and more like Miami will be destination number five in February. Keeping my fingers crossed.
That is great news for them. Miami is a high-end TATL market, and MaxJet is wise to enterprise on it. Although I wonder if Palm Beach or Ft. Lauderdale may end up being the actual gateway. The market that MaxJet is targeting has been untapped for years outside of only a few select airlines. The idea of an all premium economy style airline with Business Class amenities has really taken off. It is good to see MaxJet expanding. The value alone of MaxJet is more than enough to detract higher paying Economy Class flyers from the major airlines in the markets that MaxJet serves. The value for product is truly unmatched with other airlines Premium Economy offering.

From a Maxjet IPO shareholder document I have, their candidate US markets to be linked to STN are the Bay Area (SFO/SJC), South Florida (MIA/FLL) and Central Florida (MCO).
Factors they are looking at;
Daily O/W Pax:720
Competing airlines:BA, UA, VS
Market share required for MY:9%
MY as % of premium seats:27%
Daily O/W Pax:535
Competing airlines:AA, BA, VS
Market share required for MY:6.8%
MY as % of premium seats:33%
Daily O/W Pax:442
Competing airlines:BA, VS
Market share required for MY:8.6%
MY as % of premium seats:40%
Their direct target markets have four characteristics:
1 - Significant passenger volume paying between 500GBP and 3000GBP on competing airlines
2 - Multiple carriers to limit competitive response
3 - Availability of airport facilities not requiring capital investment
4 - Good connectivity with other lower cost carriers

Also, there is talk that SWA is opening a crew base at LAS this coming fall. That would be good since that LAS has high load factors that come thru LAS almost everyday. It would be good to have a crew base there so that crew can spend few days rest between the flights. Guess SWA make another good decision to start a crew base there along with another crew base in US.
