TPA And The Future.

Wed Oct 13, 1999 3:08 am

Sorry about being gone but I was busy spending my time with the ladies   Now back to my first love aviation. I am definately in. Just tell me what aircraft and what routes you want to start with. What is our fleet plan? It has changed several times from IL96Ms to A340s to 747s to 717s. Please catch me up!

I don't know guys. I think that operating Russian aircraft is definately going out on a limb (very high up). We don't need that kind of fall when we are just starting out. What happened to the plan of operating 757-300s and 757-400s?

CX, I'd put that under the new heading if you want it to get the exposure.

We'll TRY and start with the IL96M, but yes, there may be a few roadblocks. The alternative first type is the 777-200. But, if in any way we can buy ILs first we will. It'll save us money.
BUT, if we can't, be buy American first, and then after a few american types, add Russina to our fleet. That way our passengers won't be leery of flying the airline as they won't DEFINITELY know if they're flying a Russian plane.
Let's discuss this on the new post.
