They are working quietly with the "Airline Underground", infiltrating unsuspecting major carriers, conspiring to use smaller airports, so as to put MIA,DFW, and other mega hub airport authorities into a tailspin by removing Right and Wrong amendments and building an airport on Chicago's lake front. Delivery of the super seceret Lockheed TwinStar aircraft will be the final blow to the established carriers. Available in 800 or 900 series, as well as short fat 100 and 200 series. They haven't named an engine choice yet, rumors are Briggs and Stratten. I heard this from my flight instructor who will be their chief pilot when he is through being the Chief Test Pilot on the TwinStar project. He's double RVSM rated you know !
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

While Virgin America is secretly doing its so-called Twinstar preparations.... Independence Air does its secret preparations to acquire controlling interest of PG and AK, also throwing several CRJ into Thailand and bring the A319 to AK. Mmmm make lots of profit and send the Asian profit to help aid the IAD hub.
