A good friend took a weekend trip IAD-STN on Maxjet last weekend for a $500USD introductory fare. He said there were 35+/- people on each segment, the aircraft was comfortable, service good and dept/arr on time.

Biz r/t to UK for $500 was awfully tempting. Unfortunately I read his email inviting me to tag along the day after his return!!!

I quickly glanced at their website and think they had a $1K r/t fare for the next month or so.

I wish them luck. The industry needs alternatives to the options that are out there today. I dreamt last night that the US re-regulated. I haven't decieded yet what type of dream it was.
Sawasdee khrab!

I flew on their JFK/STN flight and given the price it was pretty good even with all the trainees on board trying to figure out what to do. It was half empty but I applaud their efforts. Had a 4 hour delay on takeoff but I didn't need any connections in UK. That's why i am inquiring anout DC flights
