Muse Air "might" have made it if they had stuck to their original plan which was to offer long-haul service out of HOU
. If Lamar had stuck around long enough and not let his dumb ass son Mike turn the airline into "Revenge Air" they might have made it. Also, you have to remember just as Muse Air was starting up, President Reagan fired all the PATCO air traffic controllers. Muse Air was up a creek. All it flew when it first started was DAL
. Later expanded to MAF
. Don't remember when they expanded after that.
A truly first class airline all the way. Lamar Muse WAS/IS
an airline genius.
He has a book out and it is a must read. Talks about his idea for Southwest operating 24/7 flights out of DFW
using just two gates for long-haul routes.
It makes perfect sense.
