Hehe, they first wanted to start flights with some A319CJs... now they've switched to B757's. I guess only time will tell...

Interesting, seeing as Swiss are intending to start all bizz to Newark with Privat Air operating the service for them.

Will it ever fly? I don't think so, and even if it does, the expansion plans are very very ambitious...

A second question though - if it does fly, will it prosper and succeed? I guess the answer here is another question - what was the last airline to commence operations with a scheduled Transatlantic route and be successful ?

I can't think of any in the last 10 years, but feel free to correct me...
(Going back a bit further, Virgin Atlantic are an example, but it is nearly 20 years ago since they commenced operations)
I don't like signatures...
