That's why LCC's fail with the business traveller, but they're great for the vacation traveller
I would think that they would fail more with the vacationer and not the business traveller, mainly because the business traveller can depend on another flight going to the same place sooner. Take Southwest, they have flight going from one destination to the same place multiple times during the day. As does Westjet (Hamilton to Montreal) etc. Those cutomers taking trips have the same time contraints, only more of a headache because they are usually making connections or have to be at a certain place on time. Am i wrong? If YOUR late, take the one leaving in 30 minutes. If they are late...they miss their connection in LHR
and wait 1+ day in a hotel for the next flight to Kuala Lumpur. Now THATS an inconvenience...however.....north american LCC's dont go to Europe. I may be wrong, but ive travelled as both alot, and i mean alot, and LCC's seem dependable

It seems to me that one of the formulas for success is simplicity. A single type of plane, simple fare structures, service that matches demand and straight-forward service
And i completely agree with you, but there has to be some way for such great services to become available to those who want to go abroad.

Do you think Virgin America also will become Virgin Canada?
I think i could see it happening. Canada is an ever expanding country. Its huge and has 3 populated and economically strong urban centres. Virgin seems to see the American market as a lucritive business, so whats stopping them from coming to Canada and serving the three (very far apart) cities?
