New Longhaul British Airline To Fly US & Carib'?

Fri May 10, 2002 6:20 am

Hi,

On Pprune is a very interesting topic about the possible start-up of a new longhaul airline from London Gatwick. Apparently they are looking to start 'luxury' flights to the US and the Carribean with B767/B777 aircraft. Rumored is that this airline is being set up by ex employees of AML (the people who operated some of BA's Carribean flights?). Now that BA has discontinued some of it's Carribean routes (after the contract with the aforementioned operator ended) it's possible that these people want to restart them as 'Hart Air' (similar name to Heart Air which was rumoured to be a new BHX LCC.........)
BA dropped the LGW- Cancun, Montego Bay and Havana routes.
By 'luxury' I suppose they're implying scheduled as opposed to charter flights(?).

On aviationjobsearch.com I found the following advertisment for the cabin crew. Looks like they want to start soon....

"Aviation Company Requires
CABIN CREW REQUIRED placed on: 08/05/2002
LONDON GATWICK
SALARY ON APPLICATION

Also according to Pprune members, the PO Box number is registered to a company called 'Plannet 24'- there's a company byn that name that makes TV programmes for Channel 4 Television in the UK....

I love a good mystery!

Any comments?!

Perhaps the company is sharing offices with Plannet 24?

I wonder if their idea of luxury is 9 across in economy on a 777 as opposed to BA's current 10 across!!!

Pack 'em in........

I'd say that's anticipating the worst ...
