Can Low-Cost Carriers Be Capable Of Longhaul?

Thu Jan 13, 2005 2:48 pm

Can they? I mean, I have heard of european carriers such as TCX and MyTravel,etc., but i've developed this crazy sounding theory that certain carriers in the US, and canada, if they've got a budget just right, could be able to fly transoceanic routes. Let's just say if jetblue were to lease some larger planes, and start a small, seasonal route network between JFK and select destinations in Europe, or if America West were to do the same and start trans-pacific routes to the polynesians, or Asia. But with the ongoing stuff like the whole airline revenue/debt payoff/worker strike type things that have been really hurting the US airline industry alot lately, I simply just believe that the idea wouldn't be able to work in the first place, well..., not here, of course. Sad

People's Express? Laker Skytrain? For those with longish memories

Whether an existing LCC would be willing/able to start longhaul services is another matter. I doubt it. Will we see Stellios on EZY0001 from LTN to JFK??
