I propose an airline that functions on the model of Virgin Atlantic, except on the Pacific. The idea of this carrier is to have direct service from all over the East Coast to Asia. We'd use EWR as our East coast hub, linking directly to Continental for code-share and continuing flights within the USA. We'd use DEN as our West Coast hub, linking to United for other continuing flights.
Using the 777-200LR we fly all the way from DEN/EWR to our Asian hub, which I think should be Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). The US Armed Forces built a gigantic base at Tan Son Nhut, plenty big enough for the 777. There'd be no congestion. Landing fees should also be pretty low, as should the cost of living. Saigon is also sufficiently well-located that we could have NG 737 service to the rest of Asia, including Seoul and Japan AND india.
We'd have very low costs and a high level of service.
What do you guys think? It's only fifteen hours to Saigon direct from EWR. We could really cut travel time down around Asia. Plus Saigon makes for a healthy trans-Asia market as well.
