Starting Your Own Airline?

Wed Dec 20, 2000 9:44 am

Hello All-
I have a question for all of you. If you could start an airline of your own and you had unlimited money, what airport would be your primary hub? What aircraft would you use (past or present)? What main routes would you have (i.e. shuttle to boston from new york)? What would make your airline stand out from the rest? All first class perhaps? I'm just curious as to what people would do if given the opportunity. I know i'd love to do it!

Thanks,
Hollywood_Man

I would have a startup from BBX, Wings Field, outside of Philadelphia, operating Tri-Islander service, and S-76 service to:

LGA
JFK
PHL (not many flights maybe once in the morning and once at night)
BWI (cheap alternative to US)
IAD
DCA
Harrisburg
ABE
ACY
EWR
Scranton

Wings has a 2,600 foot runway, with a highly disputed possible extension to 3,900 feet. I would operate a larger aircraft, except that Wings has a no jet rule (do turboprops fit under that rule?). If they ever lifted the rule, I would operate Jetstream 31's to:

YYZ
BUF
BOS (cheap alternative to US)
PIT (same).

I would like to have hubs in following airport.

SFO- Huge growth potential.
SJC- Silicon valley, can't go wrong with technology
LAX- A must, large diverse population.
JFK- A must, large diverse population.
Dallas
Pudong, Shanghai- Silicon valley of 21st century.
NRT
HKG

A330 for cross Atlantic (from U.S. to europe) and regional route.
A320/380 for inter US and China flight.
737 or A320 LR- 100-150 Pax Ultra long-range flights for long and thin routes.

A380/A300 freighter.
