In the May issue of Airliner World their was an article about them. They are hoping to aquire 2 744s, or 743s. The airline is understood to have had talks with SQ
to aquire 2 of its older 744. They plan to operate twice weekly flights from MUC
, and three times weekly MAN
, and also offer onward connections to AKL
. They have chosen Melbourne as their hub. The aircrafts will be configured in an all economy class config with 473 seats, however due to the position of pillars, doors, and seat fixing points, there will be 3 comfort levels. Seats on the lower deck will have 32 inch pitch, upper deck will have 36 inch pitch in the rear section, and 40 inch in the forward section. They plan to charge more depending on where you are sitting. There will be an onboard bar, karaoke, and dance competitions and live performances and cultural demonstrations of the destination/s ahead. Passengers will also be able to rent mini dvd players to watch movies, listen to music, and watch educational programs.
As for livery, the aircraft will be all silver, with a big yellow smilling face on the tail, a small one on the nose, and 2 pictures of Backpackers. The engines will be painted to look like Victoria Bitter Beer cans.
I hope this is helps.
