Crystal Airways?

Crystal Airways website is pretty impressive, but some say its a hoax. Is it? If so, why would someone go to such trouble?

I Dunno

I logged on to their website, and I thought it looked pretty fishy. It looks to generic to be an actual airline. On the other hand, Legend Airlines (Airways) actually looks real and professional! Only time will tell us!

Legend Airlines IS an actual airline in the making. The Crystal Airways website looks unprofessional, therefore I'd say it is just a paper airline in somebody's mind. Another kicker is that Crystal says they will start with 757's, where Legend is realistic and will be starting with DC-9's. Look for Legend very soon.

I'm skeptical for one reason: No one uses the term "Airways" anymore.

In addition, there is no telephone number. And...come on, the ability to contact all of those officers and what not...It's just some very determined and intelligent kids out for a good hoax.

Some body here called them as I remember it with Airbus Boy. And they guys son picked up the phone and said 'daddy who is it?' That is the way we run real company's.

Oh...their 90-seat 757-200's that they will fly with RECLINERS to/from the TAMPA region? That sentence is a DEAD giveaway of a hoax!


I LOVE the term "Airways" for an airline. It makes them sound so much more established! (w/ the exception of Crystal!)
