Now Airlines - Any News

Thu Mar 04, 2004 10:09 pm

Does anyone know what is happening with Now Airlines, the new LCC based at Luton which had planned to offer fixed fares. Air Pictorial said that an old Easyjet/GO aircraft arrived at Bournemouth in December for fitting out for Now. I thought it was G-IGOF but that appears to be have been reregistered to Indonesia on 22nd December.

They should rename "Now" to "Not Yet" as they have been promising services for what seems like forever and continue to push back the start date.

Still haven't heard any confirmed date yet and I still don't think you can make bookings on their website either, which suggests it could be a couple of months off at the very least.

Their website doesn't appear to have been updated for several months. I would be very surprised if they actually launch.

As Mr O'Leary the boss man of FR said on the day they announced their launch plans last June.

They should be called Never and he was right!

They did apply to the CAA for a Licence some while ago, don't know what happened at the CAA though.
