How will Blackstar make money? Filling the plane with 480 seats like TOWER. I guess they are looking to follow TOWER'S type of operation or maybe an all charter airline . But with so much competition on the Las Vegas market were are they planning to fly this 747 anyways . Good Luck to Black Star they will need it .

Where can you find info on this soon to fail airline?
No way can they make money on older 747's.
Are they smoking crack? Like a previous poster said,
National can't even make it in LAS with 757's AND

I agree with other comments. Black Star is asking for problems. Do you now the vodka brand Black Death? Black Plague Airlines, how would that sound. As a European I like the name Silver Star or White Star for a US airline. By the way, what is the address of Black Star and who is the President Director? Please reply a.s.a.p. to this questions.
Thank you in advance.

I did a search on alta-vista and there are no listings for a Blackstar Airlines. There have been a couple of other threads going on in these fora about new and strange-sounding airlines that are supposedly due to start operations soon (for example, the all-business class airline flying widebodies from STN to JFK). I am beginning to wonder if some of these are just "fantasy airlines" that people have come up with and made web sites describing just for fun. I know there are a lot of web sites for Flight Sim airlines which are very professionally designed (and a lot of fun)...to the point where the airline the Flight Sim site is based on threatens legal action to close them down! I have been tempted to do a website for such a fantasy airline myself, which is why I got to wondering

The name is the big problem, not flying a 747 out of LAS. It probably is going to be charters tied in with hotel/travel companies, I doubt it will have an extensive schedule network! However I would need to see more information about it, however it do well, but it would need a name change!
