I have a question for all of you. If you could start an airline of your own and you had unlimited money, what airport would be your primary hub? What aircraft would you use (past or present)? What main routes would you have (i.e. shuttle to boston from new york)? What would make your airline stand out from the rest? All first class perhaps? I'm just curious as to what people would do if given the opportunity. I know i'd love to do it!

I would have a startup from BBX, Wings Field, outside of Philadelphia, operating Tri-Islander service, and S-76 service to:
PHL (not many flights maybe once in the morning and once at night)
BWI (cheap alternative to US)
Wings has a 2,600 foot runway, with a highly disputed possible extension to 3,900 feet. I would operate a larger aircraft, except that Wings has a no jet rule (do turboprops fit under that rule?). If they ever lifted the rule, I would operate Jetstream 31's to:
BOS (cheap alternative to US)
