LH/PrivatAir Shuttle

Wed Nov 05, 2003 3:43 am

I just saw the JustPlanes PrivatAir DVD on their all business class operation from MUC/DUS to EWR and DUS to ORD. The service looked to be quite impressive.

My only question is why an airline, start-up or existing, hasn't started a similar operation between New York and London or other high-density business routes? From a US perspective, the operation could almost certainly not be out-sourced similar to the LH arrangement given scope clauses.

Alternatively, BlueFox has been planning for several years to do an all business operation with 767s, where the smaller BBJ or ACJ would certainly be more prudent from a cost and load factor perspective.

Just some discussion points...
