It would be great if they did start this service, but I highly doubt it. Has FlyBosnia, started any sevice within europe?

How can one offer "unrivalled flexibility" with two flights a week?
Next flight.... who knows.

Unless it's heavily subsidized it'll fail. I can't see a huge market between the US and Sarajevo. Maybe this airline should start small fly a few routes in Europe first. Let those routes gel then add a few more in about 5 years. After 7 years then add trans atlantic routes. Perhaps this airline will be Paddy Ashdowns little pet project.

Hmmm.... got that dubious feeling on this one - no mention of where in US they would fly to - any areas with a high Bosnian population?

Also, where does it state the flights are to be operated by 737?

And... yes I know there is a picture of one on the website, but that's not the same as actually using one...

Another point - is Fly Bosnia a Bosnian company? All the contact details point to towards London.
I don't like signatures...

St. Louis has a large and ever growing Bosnian population in what is known as the Bevo Mill area south of downtown.

Considering that there may be no service right now offered to the area, two weekly flights would be unrivaled. Considering that they only have 737s, I bet they will be codesharing with a larger airline or as stated are a spinoff service from another airline.
