Oh please Go back and read the thread about the Bangladeshi toilet-cleaner who leased a brand-new ATR 72 with the intention of starting a Sharia-compliant airline flying domestic UK routes. He eventually received a Jetstream, but I don't think it ever got off the ground.
Rayani Air was equally mocked.

As was the case with the two above mentioned religious mis-adventures, the amount of Christians is irrelevant. Christians don't go out of the way to buy Christian cars, houses, train tickets and clothes, or even plane tickets. The only people pious enough to take such a decision, in any of the religions, tend to be so poor that they can't afford plane tickets to start with.
There is nothing in christianity that prevents adherents from flying United or Delta, or chartering a 737 from Swift Air or Miami Air. No US airline is anti-christian. When the pope comes to visit, the US3 have no problems mustering entire crews of christian believers.
