No surprise here. Skybus founder John Weikle is returning money already received for his Jet America start-up to Charleston-area investors. He was nearly done collecting $3M in seed money.


Thank goodness this is happening. Charleston was in for a bad investment.

I read that he is supposedly re-doubling his efforts to revive Skybus instead.

How dumb can one person be to try and start-up an airline in America during this current time?

The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

I remember a thread a few months ago on some family oriented airline that was going to fly people around in old 747s, they had the worst website and the most dubious pre-launch video. I guess this will never take off either. Too bad they were promising upgrades for $50...

Why don't these people just light piles of money on fire with Jet A, it serves about the same purpose.

Thank God, if it wasn't obvious enough that SkyBus was about to sink that this guy jumped ship and thought somebody would throw him a life vest, and with that, lots of money to start another airline, this whole plan was ridiculous. Skybus' failure should have been obvious to anybody in the industry when a CEO bails out that quickly on a startup airline.

I'm more glad that they didn't get to disrespect the name Jet America from days past and long ago when this airline did fly. Trying to find and haven't yet, were they just planning on using the name Jet America, or did they successfully buy rights to the name or legally attain it somehow? I hope not, it seems as though there are certain airline names in the U.S that are just doomed and equal failure, and others that have been left alone to rest respectfully since lost, almost like it seems that any airline recently published in Airways/Airliners has been doomed to succeed.
