If I was to start an airline I'd use 757's mostly.... that way if I ever needed a larger plane I could get a few 767 and still salvage fleet compatability.

Superfly, with those choices, I suppose you've found a secret for super-cheap fuel.

I'd use ERJ-145's for Interisland Flights And 777-200ER's for Long-range domestic and international flights.

BlueJet: I like your thinking! Sounds suspiciously like what we have at Hawaiian.  Smile

Je89_w: I hope you have a LOT of money to throw away on the interisland. There's no way you'd make any $ with a 737-800 fleet. Aloha tried with a 737-300 and almost went bankrupt. We're barely breaking even in the best of months with the 717. They are losing money with the 737-200, and the -800 is a h*** of a lot more expensive to run. Repeat after me - there's no money in interisland, there's no money in interisland.....

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Interisland: 717
USA-Hawaii: L-1011-500
USA Domestic: 757
USA International: Concordes and L-1011-500's
USA-Asia: 744/777

Ok, so that's for fun.... for a good business plan (sorry Boeing) even though I am not an Airbus lover, I'm going to have to say:

Inter island: 717 (or, if we need a prop instead, the Dash-8)
USA-Hawaii: A330
USA Domestic: A320 family, some A330-200
USA International: A330-200 some A340-300
USA-Asia: A340-500/600
