Truely an aviation pioneer. It's also a fact that nobody has yet attempted to emulate Laker's SkyTrain, i.e. longhaul low cost carrier. All said and done VS is a full fares, full service carrier, whereas SkyTrain really was about paying cheapest fares, even offering cheap tickets on the day of flight.

But, I believe that Laker Airways went bankrupt around 1980. Is that correct?
