What Ever Happened To Las Vegas Air?

Thu Feb 23, 2012 2:27 pm

I'm sure most of you have heard about las Vegas air, or LVair, as they go by. Their website still says the first flight is in 2011, but if I'm not mistaken, I think we are in 2012! Also, it shows the CEO next to a 777/767, but I highly doubt that is one of their aircraft. What do you guys think? Anybody know anything new about this airline?
Here's the website- http://flylvairnow.com

Thanks for any info!

1) The CEO was last seen at the black jack table gambling for the starting capital

2.) They left their business plan in the fire fighters training centre (that's the place with the poles at the tables)

3.) The Las Vegas Air is contaminated

4.) LVAir goes the same way Smintair of DUS went, up in smoke

It says the airline will bring the spirit of Las Vegas to the sky.

Does this mean:

1. They'll allow smoking?
2. It will always be extremely hot?
3. Will they have a brothel in First?
4. Instead of selling scratch cards, like FR, will they have a roulette wheel they bring to your seat?

I don't think that airline will ever take off (no pun intended). Last May, the CEO of the airline was exposed by the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

LV Air is looking like promoter's latest fly-by-night plan

Here's a thread I posted about it last year when this came to light:

It looked like a joke from the start. The PR video under the "About" section first featured a QR cabin, showed footage of an SQ 777, and then proceeded to show BA's first class cabin.

Honestly, it looked like the personification of one the airlines I dream up during school.
