From the flyi site:
Looks like they accidently put CFMs on...they had announced V2500s I believe.

I am falling more and more in love with this airline and it is not even around yet. I am so waiting for them to come around. I'd work for them for sure, especially if they are coming to HVN. I like the color scheme they are adopting there. It's looks very sharp and modern. Let's see how well they do when Independence Air takes to the skies.

I'm doubting that even if they accept delivery of their first Airbus....they will liely go under in the first six months.

They have no market, no money, and no management!

Actually they have enough money to last a year without making any. So these Airbuses will fly. The current RJs will let them develop markets, for the time being, faster than JetBlue has (thats why B6 wants Emb-190s...to develop LCC markets with reduced capacity and/or greater frequency than the big boys). And their `non-existant' management saw off a hostile Mesa and UAL takeover. So you'd have to give them a better chance of survival than, say USAirways while their staff will be better motivated than, say, Mesa's!

Voodoo,

I think that 99.9% of the people that look at that picture even notice it or give a sh*t.

All they did was take a outline of the aircraft and paint it in their C/S for publicity. If its for publicity, you don't care if all detail are correct. I could point out many other technical details that they left out in that pic as well, but the people that see the pic most likely don't care...

Its only a sketch, get over it!

Now if they would deliver the aircraft with the CFMs instead of IAEs, then it would be a very big Boboo.

Fritzi, LOL nothing funnier than getting told off for airliner geekiness in an airliner geek forum. Big grin (I know what you mean tho.  Smile )
