Northern Lights Airlines is the Canadian start-up that is said to start flights to Tunisia by March 2008 !!! Up to now they have no aircraft...

What's that ? Any info about it ?

I have also read this strange "thing" this morning. I have many doubts this will go beyond the rumour stage.
We have already seen what happened with Canada Air Charter.

I thought the Tunisian government would be smarter to get the help of an established airline. I heard rumours that Royal Jordanian would start a Amman-Tunis-Montreal service. Tunisair could have shared codes on those services and transferred passengers to other services to North Africa and the Middle East. That would be wiser than count on a "ghost" charter airline.



Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

Why not Air Transat ?

Haha, they are using a cabin pic of a First Choice 763... Couldnt they get in trouble for that? I wonder if they asked for permission from the photographer if they could use it?

Yeah...but that doesn't really make it ok. Of course, if they got permission (which I somehow doubt) then thats fine.

Perhaps not something patrons of a restaurant at 38,000 would feel comfortable reading. Diction is key in any type of marketing, and even more so when safety is a common concern on the mind of the average traveller.

We'll all be very skeptical indeed, and this is very unlikely to go through, but It would be nice to have another Canadian carrier in the skies.
