Noting that Oasis Hong Kong are now looking at a number of different routes including MAN, SYD, MEL, MXP etc, does anyone have an idea about what their fleet will look like in the coming years. Will they continue with the used 744 or get some shiny new birds?



Cheers,

Qantas83

With the use of 777s and 787s (eventually), a lot of airlines are looking the other way from the 744 and so availibility shouldn't be too much of a problem. Keeping a common fleet comes with its advantages - pilots, maintenance (although it could be outsourced anyway), FAs.. If you look around the world, most budget airlines have stuck to one particular type of plane: Easyjet, WN etc. I hope the 744 will remain a flyable plane (in a passenger's point of view) for many years to come.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Oasis Hong Kong Airlines intends to grow its fleet from five to 15 aircraft by 2009, at which point it will launch an initial public offering on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Chairman Reverend Raymond C Lee says: “Once we have 15 planes in the air, we will go to the bank and tell them we want to go public.”

Oasis is targeting further growth to between 20 and 25 aircraft by 2010-11, and while these are likely to be mainly Boeing 747s, in the longer term Oasis may also consider other types, such as the Boeing 777.

It will.

I suspect that O8 will only employ aircraft types that are in service with CX, makes it easier to poach pilots.

Ex NH is suspect.

Depends how much they pay their crews compared to CX.
