Bristol are about to get A US service with Continental. I was shocked when i heard about it, as i did not know what airline it was until yesterday.

But looks like they wont to try and break into that part of the country.

Air Southwest are helping em out by providing a feeder service from the airports they go to to BRS to get PAX to the airport in time for the diret Service
Where does the time go???

The company is MAXjet http://www.maxjet.com formerly Skylink Airways.

They recently renamed, and have been trying to get certified since early 2004. They seem to have faced one set back after another from the DOT questioning their entire business premise along with revenue/budget assumptions along with having lost many of the initial principles of the organization.

Latest plan is to offer BWI-JFK-STN service 6x per week and MCO-JFK-STN service 1x per week.

Check out the latest DOT filings.

They have received neither DOT route approvals, nor their FAA operating certificate yet, so surely they cannot legally market seats yet.

Bristol already have the US service. Daily EWR flights started 22nd May I believe
Air Southwest will offer convenient timings, but do not offer an interline service, and accept no responsibility should flights be cancelled resulting in pax missing their departure to the US from Bristol.

(Work-wise this is a major pain in the a*se for me Sad )

What will happen come the winter when airfares from LON to NYC are already very low (can easily get a return deal, including tax, for £180)? A transatlantic low-cost, no-frills airline is fine during the summer - when airfares from LON to NYC regularly exceed £400 - but during the winter it will be difficult. During the NY winter slump, it would be wise for the airline to concentrate on routes which are for tourists seeking warm weather, like to Mexico or particular parts of the Caribbean, and where the airfares are high, rather than trying to compete during the winter on NYC-LON where airfares are already very low and where there's an oversupply.
