Name: Cloud Nine Airways
It would be based out of Washington Dulles Airport
since its centrally located relative to the major north eastern cities, BOS
, NYC, PHL
The fleet would consist of a mixed Boeing and Regional jet service...
Long Haul: 777-300 for long, dense routes. 777-200LR, 767-300.
Medium Haul: All 757-200
Short-Haul: All 737NGs
Ultra-short / Commuter: ERJ-135/145's.
Other Hubs would be in San Fransisco, Orlando and San Juan
MAJOR focus would be on European destinations, like London, Paris, and Madrid, but with more emphasis even on 'secondary' markets, like Milan, Athens, Prague, Stockholm, and Brussels.
Also, services to the caribbean, with the ERJ's serving inter-island routes, as well as hub and spoke to the islands from SJU
Domestic service would be less, since the major carriers make it tough to break into those markets, but I would hope to fly IAD
-Western major cities, even some in Asia like HKG
The real beauty would be the in-flight services. No more pretzels and soda. Fresh Fruit, Cheese, wool blankets, and more legroom would be just the beginning. Long Haul flights would of course have PTV's in coach, along with all the inflight entertainment. Satellite TV
similar to JetBlue would be available. Leather and Cloth seats, in Navy blue with light grey (almost white)trim would be the colors. No cheesy patterns on the chairs, simple solid blocks of color. Curved lines, to ease the eye. Mini- Xenon lighting systems for reading, and a small cooler under the seat to store one or two small mini-cans of soda or food. Seats could be ventillated or heated, to the persons choice... (often too hot or cold for pax). Aluminum trim for a modern look.
Exterior colors would be a Dark Blue Belly, with a grey "ribbon" stripe that straps around the nose, (doesnt end at the nose), and around the fuselage two times, up onto the rudder forming the "9". White top, and Large, Dark Blue Letters that fade as they go down the fuselage. The dot on the I would be a small light grey cloud. Engines would be Grey fading to white, with a "c9" written on the sides. Winglets would have a small cloud on them also.
Nobody Better Steal my Idea!! lol ....
