All the fuss about the 7e7 v the 330"Coors"Lite got me thinking about something. If the forecasted efficiency of the 7e7 is met or exceeded, could this open the door for the LCC to use a widebody? If it does what about transpac and transatl routes would these become profitable for the average LCC? I know that PeoplExpress and AW
both tried intercont'l flights in the past, with miserable consequences. But this is not the 1980's. I guess the idea hinges on whether or not ATA can make their transatl service work. If ATA can, I believe that the age of the intercont'l LCC may happen, as other LCCs will see that intercont'l service works. If ATA fails, well........ I'd guess we won't see B6
widebodies in Europe or RyanAir or Easy Jet big boys in the States.
