Room For A Premium Start-Up Airline?

Wed Sep 05, 2012 6:08 am

Hi All-
This is My first post here on A.Net, although I Visit A.Net numerous times a day, that is when work allows.
I Have No previous Experience in Aviation, although I fly GA planes for fun, and I travel Often for Work.

Aside from the Massive Capital required just to Procure Aircraft, Overcome Regulatory Issues, and Insurance, is there room in the Market (U.S) for an Airline that offers a Premium, Exclusive Product to the public, and even Large Companies ?
I Hear of Start-Ups coming about all the time, But 9 out of 10 times they are shutdown, even before they have a chance to Fail!

The Only Airline that has started from Nothing (And please correct me if I am wrong) is jetBlue, who built up a Massive Credit Line, with Various Large Financial Firms. They Were able to have enough Capitol to acquire New airplanes, hire very qualified staff, and had reserve for them to build a presence in the U.S.
Have Any of you ever Dreamed of one day starting an Airline?

Thought's Please.
