The more I think about it the more I think it wouldn't be very successful. And the reason is people don't travel across the Atlantic very often in general so when they do fly they're willing to pay more.
|Quoting Ps76 (Reply 2):|
I don't know if the change was solely because of fuel prices or because of shareholder pressure when they realised they could raise fares and get much bigger profits because they would still be the cheapest option and so would hardly lose any customers.
|Quoting Boeing74741R (Reply 10):|
From the UK at least I'd argue taxation (APD) has had a lot to do with it, as well as the cost of fuel.

I mean this was at a time when you could take a 2 hour flight on Ryanair to Eastern Europe for 2 pence!

First, can anyone create a business model that would survive/work? It didn't go too well for Oasis, and as far as my aviation knowledge goes, that was the closest to a successful attempt as we've had. The costs of operation are just too high, and offering such low fares on TATL flights makes no business sense in my head.
|Quoting tonymctigue (Reply 21):|
Not that this disaster could be blamed entirely on LCC operations across the Atlantic. There were clearly alot of other problems that lead to their demise but along with Oasis, they are the only one that seems to have at given it a go with some success if only for a limited time.
|Quoting CPDC10-30 (Reply 22):|
TS has been offering LCC transatlantic flights for 20+ years now. There have been others that have come and gone, but they seem to be the only ones who can do it profitably. With their new cabins, there will be very little differentiating TS and AC except for seat width, free alcohol and price, at least in Y.
