Do you think it would be possible to fill an A330-200 with 100% business class seating and sell enough seats between STN and the US to make a proffit or just break even?
This is what Blue Fox hope to do.
Although it was origonally rumored that B767-300s would be used, the CEO himself (Michael Lord-Castle) has been quoted as saying that A330s will be used for their flights which are expected to commence in Jan 2001.
Apparently, Blue Fox's PR group have persuaded the company not to go ahead with a press release (which was due last week) for a while, so we don't know what US destinations or how many a/c are proposed.
But I think that the A330 would be far too big to operate a 100% J class service. How many seats would they have to sell on each flight to make the proffit greater than the operating costs?
What do those of you who know abit more about transatlantic business class loads think?
Could they fill a whole A330 from Stansted?
I'm sure they know what they're doing, but I doubt (if it gets off the ground) that Blue Fox will stay 100% business for long.
