There are several points here in no order whatsoever.
1) Both EOS and Maxjet have their FAA approvals.
2) Maxjet is out of T1 EOS out of T4
3) There is an article in WSJ today about them both
has its own unique catchment, so will be preferable to some people, in fact a lot of people, over LHR
5) I think they will need to rely heavily on US-originating traffic, as opposed to UK
6) What about loyalty schemes?
7) Point to note, they are both operating expensive aircraft with high maintenance, PrivatAir uses 737/319 long range versions - about 30% cheaper to operate.
8) when you're competing against BA
Club and VS
UCS your seats had better be good. The pics of EOS in WSJ look like you'll be getting hospital bed with a plastic wrap-around - it is gross.
9) Maxjet has 60inch pitch, so yes, 102 on 767, 72 on 757, which may catch some (leisure?) premium econ pax (small market anyway) but who is going to give up their bizz lie-flat seat paid for by their company?
10) Maxjet have changed their bizz plan (from someone earlier)
11) Privat have the backing of major airlines AND
they do not sell tickets themsleves.
12) Orion, a lot of US pax travel bizz over the pond and then pick up a 99pence flight - it is totally possible people will self-interlign, just not enough for these airlines.
is a great airport, if you don't know it. Entrance to gate in 8 mins if you're quick (I've done it!). easy access for the City and Cambs and all those catchment areas, and you can avoid the lo-cost pax.
14) oh, and schedules, one flight a day? Market share on this route is determined by frequency, not number of seats on your aircraft. One flight a day - not looking good.
well, that's all, i think the bizz-only concept works, but i think these guys have got the model wrong.
