Would It Survive?

Fri Feb 23, 2001 10:28 pm

Yesterday we had a topic about nw US airlines, and who you think will survive and die.
So I'm wondring if you think my startup airline (just in my mind ofcourse) would have survived in todays aviation "wars"

The name would have been: Globe Air Norway, and they would hav opperated out of OSL with One 743 (pax), one 743M (combi) and 2-4 Dc9-30/40/or50 (could also bee 717 or 732's)

The main routs will be OSL-NYC-SFO-SYD-BKK-OSL (flied in bothe directions: OSL-NYC... and OSL-BKK...)
And maybe some other flights to popular destinations.

The DC9's would hav been used on feeder flights from MAin cities in Europe, and they would fly the pax to and from the OSL hub.

Pax could fly all kind of leg's like SFO-BKK or just OSL-NYC etc, and the price on the feeder flights would dcrease when the lenght on the main leg increased (hope you understand whtaI mean)

It would bee two or three calsses with good leromm and service (maybe only mainscreen entertainment in coach)
The seating in the 743 coach would hopefully have been 3-4-2 (but 3-4-3 is also possible)

I would like to hear your comments on this idea (as said before it is only an idea in my head)

An airline-ceo told me once: if you want to make a million $ profit in the airline business, you have to start with a billion $ !!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It'll be hard on the OSL-NYC route. SAS flies that and with a 763. Do you really think you kan fill a 743?

I don't know about the other 743 flight but I also think the flights from Europe to OSL will be hard to fill because of SAS (and perhaps Braathens).

But I like your thoughts. I really like SAS and the norwegians and the danish but I would also like that Sweden had its "own" airline.

Sorry, but no chance to survive a single month. The reasons:

743 is far too big
no traffic rights between BKK and SFO (which airlines does successfully offer it ?)
DC9 / 732 too high in fuel consumption and noise
F - class is something only for well established airlines
