Airlines You DON'T Want To Start Service!

Tue Aug 02, 2005 10:55 pm

Following on from the thread of airlines you do want to see at your local airport, are there any airlines you wouldn't want to see?

Bit more of a trickier question, but mine would be....

At Manchester, UK

Air India. I'd much rather see Jet, Air Sahara, Kingfisher etc at MAN in future. AI are renowned for their bus route services (DEL-ATQ-BHX-YYZ), they're government owned, inefficient and seemingly always late.

Ryanair. With the exception of their 4 times daily Dublin service, they can expand at neighbouring Liverpool for me. I do use FR when I have to, but I'd rather MAN's LCCs and other airlines keep on expanding instead.

I didn't much appreciate SAA at MAN in the 1980s, but of course, that's all changed now!

More airlines at my airport means more planes and variety at my airport. I don't have a single one I wouldn't like to have flying into AUS.

Cornish,

Just wait until Aer Lingus goes public and Michael O'Leary buys all the shares Big grin

And then he gets his hands on BD. We could be looking at LHR T1 (FR)

Heaven forbid

Hooters Air has no place in GRR...and I don't think they care about us, which suits me just fine. There's something about dragging promiscuity onto an airplane that infuriates me (and don't try and tell me that Hooters doesn't promote promiscuity...with a name like Hooters, it has to be raunchy)

I had to vent...

Any LCC at PHX besides WN,HP,B6,and F9 I don't want to come to PHX. Like AirTran, Spirit, or Song because they would get blown out of here and, and I like the LCC's we have already. Especially no AirTran, ugly name, planes, and I don't want them in PHX.
