The weather here is usually very nice. We usually can go for about two eeks straight without bad weather, and when it comes it doesn;t last more than 2 or 3 days. As for the planes, I talked to my parents after I read your response last night, and here was their description:
"We called them the Flying Bananas. I think it was back in the 70s when they came here. They were really big planes, and they were noisy, too. They didn't last long. They were gone by the 80's, I remember they had a yellow-blue paint scheme. That's why we called them the Bananas. No, I don't think any airline will ever come here again."
That is waht my father said. I asked "How many engines did the planes have?"
"I don't remember."
That was the end of the conversation. My dad isn't big on planes and gets tire of talking about them. Anyway, you probably didn't need to know the whole conversation, but you get my drift.
Our population: 52,000+
Jobs: Well, let's say our city counsil is a bunch of idiots. They deny everything that tries to come here, heaven knows why, and all that SHOULD HAVE been here, goes to Idaho Falls.
My airline, UTW? No, I don't think I'll ever have the funds to make my own airline, I want to pilot an airline, not rip my hair out trying to manage one and keep from getting bought, grounded, or bankrupt! But, if it were easy, I know exactly what I'd do:
60 757-200s-------------Major Cities
40 767-300ERs--------Major Cities, Hawaii
10 757-300s-------------Major Cities, Hawaii
13 MD-11s---------------Major Cities, Hawaii
14 MD-88s---------------Major Cities, Mainland only
10 717-200s-------------Medium/Large mainland
20 CRJ-400s------------Small Utah cities only
23 737-500s-------------Small-Large cities/mainland
I would fly to all capable western cities. For medium-sized airports, such as PIH or SNA, the 737 would serve them. Even smaller airports would have the CRJ service. Also, being based in Utah, I would fly even to those small, insignificant airports with the CRJ in those tiny tows such as Delta, Utah, and Logan. I'd fly to every Utah town that had even a hint of an airport, just to give those small communities a taste of the airline industry, and possibly help their city grow. Pocatello would be a major hub, using the MD-11 and 767ER to fly to places like Honolulu. It sounds grea to me, and would be a major boost for many cities, like Pocatello, that don't know what it is like to have a taste of a major airline, and, SLC would be my base. Too bad things aren't that easy, and UTW will never happen :(
If you want to see my livery for UTW, please e-mail me. I am the only one (so far) that has seen this. I want opinions!
Fly 757-200! (Note the name change)
