Before anyone puts the boot into Ceilidh about this delay, and trying to say it is evidence the hwole thing is BS, remember that setting up an airline isn't as easy as snapping your fingers, and presto, you;ve got it.
My father was involved in setting up an airline. The original schedule slipped and slipped, they eventually ended up leasing and MAS 733C, and then things just went downhill from there. Fact of the matter is, when you are trying to set up an airline, there is a bunch of unanticipated beuareucratic red tape that pops up just when you least expect it, and sends the whole thing awry. I look forward to seeing Claedonian Wings (or whatever it eventually becomes, and yes, my father's interest changed its name about three times, for various reasons).
