Interesting.. I'm curious if they could perhaps start this under FAR 135 instead of 121? That might make it cheaper?

Based on all of the horror stories recently, you would think they are teeed up perfectly right now to succeed. They must have learned a few things from the last time.

Every media outlet out there will cover their launch, its huge free PR. I hope they get off the ground.

Maybe start smaller this time like only out west:
Denver-
Salt Lake-
So Cal/ Bay Area/Seattle

once a week to the different spokes. Go shorter distance lots of hipsters and dog lovers out west and those are shorter hops. I think they should start out West with a spoke setup, then go cross country.

With the massive increase in passengers flying with their pets for free as emotional support or service animals on commercial carriers - doesn’t this make for a bad time to try and restart this business?

Since airlines are beginning to crack down on the use of emotional support animals, and the negative publicity surrounding the incidents on UA and DL, it would be a perfect time. Long-term, its future is uncertain.

So I'm guessing that this will be a cargo airline that only transports pets?

Excellent. Maybe they can crate and ship all these ridiculous “emotional pet owners” along with their pets as well.

There was another thread on this just after the company's February blog was posted. Not sure that no news is good news.

For those that don't recall, Pet Airways chartered cargo airplanes (Beech 1900, Shorts 360) to transport animals. It ran multi-stop flights from LA (Hawthorne) to New York (Farmingdale), and then to Florida a few times each week.

Instead of domestic flights, maybe they should consider something like 1x monthly LAX-NRT-GUM-SIN, 1x monthly NYC-LON-DXB, 1x monthly LAX-HNL-SYD, and 1x monthly MIA-SJU-GRU on a 737-700ER instead, which are routes that cannot be done by driving.

I wonder if did they did, or plan to, transport cats and dogs going to cat and dog shows.

Absolute madness, we plough through billions of chickens cows pigs etc for food, complex and emotional creatures all, meanwhile an airline to transport dogs between spa treatments and manicures. Fall of Rome.
