New Airlines?

Thu Oct 25, 2001 12:51 am

Would now be a good time to start a low cost airline? Aircraft are plentiful, pilots and FAs are available. Even management is available.

I presume you mean in the USA. You would have just about all you would need, except for passengers, and the winter slow period is just around the corner.

Even then, if you could find a way to compete with Southwest, keep passenger loads up, get good deals on fuel, keep expenses down to the bare minimums, and have an awful lot of good luck, you might could make a go of it. But the odds would be against you.
