To survive, an airline must be tougher than Ryanair, and must beat FR
with its own weapons.
I would create a bank. Costumors can pay in money, and get 2% interests on it. They can buy tickets from this without extra charge, all other ways, credit cards, etc. 10€ fee.
Since passengers prefer saving money over everything, I expect millions of potential passengers putting hundreds of € there, so I know how to finance my planes.
I would purchase a fleet of A321-200 and market the more comfortable width compared to first generation LCC.
Third round: To have a cabin crew of 4 only, these would have exactly 200 seats, an inch more spacing than FR
, but have the same CASM.
Still I would have place for comfortable locking of on board luggage, and produce video clips with ambulances pulling passengers out of FR
planes which have been hit by heavy luggage in the overhead bins, or have to go to a marriage with a dress dirty from some soup coming from above, or....
Fifth round: Online booking only, online checking mandatory, booking of checkin luggage expensive to fully cover the costs, but allow more than 20kg for a realistic price, with videos of an FR
passenger female having to wear the same dress 3 weeks...
Simple prices, and a good price management system. No added taxes, no fuel surcharges.
Extra fees for luggage, priority boarding, extra distance seats ( I have A321, so a long cabin ) .
Drinks and food are sold on board. Larger cans than FR
, and you see my videos of people drying out and falling to ash behing increasing piles of small cans. Cabin crew actively sells drinks and food.
Looking for airfileds that are A321 capable, and have no serious commercial traffic yet. Analyse where transport needs can be generated, they don't exist usually before I enter the airport. Making use of the large migration movements and the increasing distance between working place and family home with actions like "Book 10 flights between A and B and only pay 9" I'm sure there is enough sleeping market to fill the first 100 A321 my bank can finance.
Purchase another 250 GTF
powered A321 and push FR
out off the market with them. Purchase of a number of airports, build them up for Long range traffic, mainly using tax payers money to create jobs.
Build up hubs on a few middle of nothing airports I own, where connections can be warrented from many other middle of nothing places. 20 A321 fall in, meet once or twice a day, and go out again, giving a huge number of potential connections.
Eleventh round: At each of these meeting they feed two A380 making long range connections.
Twelfth round: Wake up!
