What, if any, new airlines are currently being planned for launch or are speculated to be doing so in the US & Canada. Particularly interested in a new Frontier-esque Reno Air I once heard of here that had a website set up.


Just say NO to scabs.

Is it a good time to start one though. That is the Question.

It's the best time for a start-up, new planes being sold fairly cheap. I think it's stime to start my airline.
Seriously though, what airlines are in the process of starting up? will be interesting to see what their plans and fleets (plans) are.

They're trying to use the Allegiant approach and serve underutilized cities/airports in Canada. Sounds interesting.. wish them the very best

Care to share the website address? I would love to see Reno Air take back to the skies. They should have never sold out!

Depends. Will the economy rebound during your first 6-12 months of operations? It is all about timing. Catch the economy on the upswing and you'll have a cost advantage since you should have been able to negotiate the rest of your costs pretty low.

Amen. I loved flying them from OKC to LAS. Once they got AAbsorbed, the quality and atmosphere wasn't the same.

I will give it a try . Would you recommend domestic or international flying or a bit of both

It should be fine to just monitor this forum and here people complain about their local airport abandonned. With oil cheap as dirt, aircraft prizes and leases down, and many airports seeking for airlines desperately, this is the time to start planning, start operation next good season, account for two hard years and than you are there for a realistic date of economic recovery in 2012.

Don't think of any airport served by Southwest, Jetblue, Alegiant or Virgin America, these are the only airlines in the US that are well managed and could survive on a free market.
