Re: Report: New Airline to Become World’s First “No-Cost” airline, despite “excessive” fees

All jokes aside, I'd actually give that airline a try.... - You would have to board the plane via stairway (not sure how that would work in some facilities though). - Arrive at the gate just before boarding to avoid crowding. - Print a boarding pass (probably at home). - Sit in row 21 or further ba...

Re: Breeze - News and Discussion Thread

I think EYW might fit the Breeze business model fairly well, provided that either an A220 or E195 can land there - tickets are known to cost quite a bit, even on short hops. The airport has not had LCC service since Southwest/AirTran left several years ago.
