I am planning on starting an airline in about 15-20 years. I was wanting to know what aircraft you think I should operate. Not what you like, but what would save money. I would really like to operate one type so that maintenance would be focused on one aircraft. Of course this will be a low-fare airline. The Airline is still in the Stage 1 Planning Phase. But can someone tell me what aircraft I should use. The 717 is already on my list. But I may get a second type for short haul routes... No Regional Jets Please. My Friend will be the COO with his broad range of Operational Knowledge. Can anyone help me out.

A380....LOL!!!!! Allow me to reiterate.. This will be a LOW-FARE Airline... We could not possibly afford an A380. I think we will stick with the 717. DC9s will be totally gone by then (We might pick up some Ex-NWA DC9s)

My point was this........why in the heck are we even talking about this subject when you won't even, if ever, begin service 15 to 20 years down
the road. Heck, we all might not even be here by then.
Bush could invade Iraq and start a nuclear war and wipe the whole
I just don't think this is a valuable and worthy discussion at this time.
For all we know, they (Airbus/Boeing) might be bankrupt, or they
could develop new planes that use water for fuel by separating
the hydrogen atoms to power the plane.......15 to 20 years is
too far off to plan an airline........

I second what B747-437B said.
This is a pointless thread. Nobody knows what the state of the airline industry will even be tomorrow, much less 15-20 years down the road (hell, Sept 10th I was behind security at JAX looking out the windows at AF1... who knew what would happen to the airline industry 16 hours later?).

Maybe you should worry about making the cash first, before deciding how to spend it. Also, figure out how you will single-handedly beat all other airlines in the future for passenger revenue dollars. If you succeed here, you deserve to be making decisions on what planes to buy : )
Otherwise, dream on. Shouldn't you be doing your homework?

Ummmmm... I by no means know anything about aviation, buisness, aviation buisness or anything like that... but;
Shouldn't you not be thinking about this right now? 20 years is a LONG time, especially in aviation. 20 years ago Airbus only had the A300 and A310, 20 years ago there were only 2-3 versions of the 737, 20 years ago the largest passenger aircraft beside the 747 was the DC10 and L1011.
You shouldn't be planning which aircraft you are going to operate, because the whole face of aviation could easily change... You just can't plan so far ahead for that sort of thing, almost nothing can be planned so far in advance. Cointyro is correct, you should just concentrate on funding for the next 15 years...

I do not need Criticism YET!!!... Criticise me when I first start flying like all of you AirTran Bashers like to do. Yeah, You know what I am talking about. Anyway, First I need HELP, Then I can use the criticism.. Don't give me criticism before the help. Look at Neeleman, He RAISED the Cash to start an airline.

Let's see here....
Here's some help:
1.) Clean up your act.
2.) Finish high school.
3.) Go to college. Graduate.
4.) Make a name for yourself in the business world.
5.) Come up with a sound business plan that is apropo to the society and economy of that time.
6.) Secure funding.
7.) Probably go bankrupt or get bought out.

I agree with BR715 and Seiple !!
You need to grow up first !!
You are only a kid.......
Then, you need to have "Balls of Steel" to make it
in the airline industry. Obviously, since you can't
handle all the criticism you are already facing here
for this RIDICULOUS post/subject, I don't think you'll
be able to develop those balls !!
Get over it, stupid subject..........
Maybe you can use the Concorde since BA and AF will probably
have removed them from their fleet by then. I bet you could
buy them very cheap out in Mojave !!
25 Matthc49: Mojave... Where my poor AA 727 sits that I could have bought for only $600,000... Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Get Airline Tycoon and see how you can run one,
