Still waiting for those Q4 2018 numbers... Can't imagine it takes 3 months to do the accounting for an organization with no material operation.

Not sure why you're calling them "Jetballs" though.

Jim do you work for an airline? I can tell you don’t. Right before Christmas is perfect timing. If they start ticket sales mid end of summer. Depending on first route it will do very well. Holiday travel starts end of November-January 2/3rd.

Jetballs has no credibility. They've been thrashing around in the market since at least 4Q 2013 and have accomplished nothing. Not a single ASM generated.

Launching an airline from a standing start in the northern half of the northern hemisphere a week before Xmas is patently absurd.

Lets just say there are a few more things to consider when launching an airline than selling tickets.

As long as their first few routes are all YVR-south, then weather-related they should be fine....but we all know that's not gonna happen. They'd be better off waiting until the start of winter break season or a couple of weeks before Easter 2020 and keep raising equity in the meantime...especially Canadian equity as they still need that 51% of the equation before launching.

Now Jetballs though, seriously? Was WestJet referred to as WorstJet during their startup? I think not.

Having said all this, I'd hazard a guess that Jimbo's ex-WestJet buddies at Enerjet will get off the ground with ULCC scheduled ops before Jetlines does.

The difference is WS started raising capital in May 1995 and was flying less than 10 months later.

JetBalls has been making grand pronouncements for 6 years + and still have nothing to show for it.

I'd tend to agree with your last paragraph, which is a further nail in Jetball's coffin.

That being said, they face a dramatically different competitive world than the one faced by WS in 1996.

There's no chance any new entrant will be able to come close to the unit cost differential WS had compared to all the incumbents than mattered in 1996, nor will they be able to exploit countless safe harbors WS had back in the day.

And Swoop is no slouch, either.

Almost 50% of WS's launch routes were non-stop exclusive routes with a 120 seat jet. No one is going to be able to achieve that advantage in Canada 2019-2020, esp running 189 seats.

WS was able to skate between the legs of the incumbents. CP was a basket case and AC wasn't anywhere near as strong as it was today in the west. WS could pick it's battles, rarely having to suffer the onslaught of both AC and CP at the same time. That won't be the case for any new entrant, esp if they decide to venture into core markets, of which there are precious few compared to what's top be found in Europe, the US and elsewhere.

Other than Flair, the incumbents are, financially speaking, in a whole different snack bracket than was the case domestically from '95 through CP's defacto failure in late 1999, (no money for the Dec 15th 1999 payroll), and even the subsequent mess that was AC through their at least their first banco experience in 2003.

Flair learned a valuable lesson the hard way in the winter of 2018-2019, a lesson that is unique to the Cdn market. The others are going to have to learn the same lesson or suffer the same result. I suspect that won't stop some of these operations from trying to run before they learn to walk, with typical results.

This ain't the US with 327m people, cheap taxes and much lower input costs, nor is it the EU with a population of 510m, both with a much larger passenger base that is more disposed to pay higher yielding fares that underwrite the "oh my gosh" type fares that ULCC's rely upon to stimulate traffic.

It's Canada with 35m people, with 23% of the population who culturally, and from a VFR perspective, have very little interest or propensity to fly domestically compared to the balance of the population, at ANY price.

Had WS faced the launch scenario today in 1996, I doubt WJ would have been successful.

It'll be interesting to watch it unfold.

It makes me think that either he is an 11 year old boy, (and snickering), or Jetlines really does pose a threat.

Jetballs poses the same threat to incumbents as Skybus did south of the border a few years ago.

They've duly earned the moniker.

I mean, seriously, besides everything else they've screwed up since 4Q 2013, and have yet to sell a single, solitary seat, largely because they don't have a single, solitary seat to sell after 6+ years, what could possibly go wrong operationally with this stock pumping venture by launching in Canada a week before Christmas?

In the immortal words of the Trailer Park Boys, whose collective intelligence rivals the wisdom of everything this cast of clowns has dreamed up thus far, "think Ricky, think!"

Here is jetlines response to AerCap issues

Jetlines will not have to pay any penalties for canceling the agreement with Aercap. AerCap, in its determination will provide financial accommodation up to the amount of the deposit payments with respect to future lease agreements that Jetlines enters into with AerCap prior to April 2019, subject to certain conditions.
With our launch planned for December, we wanted to realign our delivery dates for aircraft with our launch date to be as cost effective as possible. In place of our agreement with AerCap, we leveraged our existing partnership with SmartLynx and intend to lease our initial aircraft with them.

Many valid points. I do believe that there’s room for one or maybe two jet operator additional airlines in Canada. However, they need to be well thought out and well planned and capitalized. Enerjet is going about things quietly and having (at this point) the backing of ULCC investor juggernauts Indigo. That must mean they’re onto something without showing all their cards like Jetlines must do. I sure hope Flair sticks around, but I continue to scratch my head at their neglecting of two of the six largest metro areas in the country...especially when WestJet is so weak in both of them.

Well AerCap now has two a320CEO's sitting around in CHC waiting for someone else to lease them, so probably only fair the funds have been held back.

They are only 13years old, so likely AerCap wants/needs to get a couple more years out them.

Perhaps you might want to consider why WS is, in your words, “so weak” in 2 of the six largest markets in Canada after 23 years with close to 180 tails operating, and how a new entrant with a couple of airframes operating 12 block hours a day with an asl of 1,000 miles + is going to be able to accomplish what you perceive WS has failed to do.

I assume you include YUL in the category. Strategically, I can’t think of a better market for any of the new outfits to attempt to muscle in on.

Yes sir. Focus on a market that represents 23% of the countries population that has a fraction of the RoC’s propensity for domestic travel, at ANY price, due to the fundamental, (culturally driven), lack of VFR traffic, with precious little demand for intra Quebec air travel, (with YUL-YQB being well under 200 miles and an easy drive), with the vast majority of intra Canada travel focused on YYZ, just 300 miles away, and the highest cost airport in North America, which happens to be exceedingly well served to YUL by AC, WS and PD and is a fortress hub of the dominant player in Canada. Oh yea. There’s an airport located about an hour away across the border that has massively lower costs and does not attract close to $100 of unavoidable fees, taxes and transborder charges on every r/t fare sold to Florida and the sun.

And do this all from a secondary airport with poor access to the core market.

What could possibly go wrong?

Does anyone recall Jetsgo? Intair?

Anyone believing they are going to waltz into the Canadian market and apply what’s worked elsewhere is in for a rather rude awakening. I doubt there’s a more saturated aviation market anywhere in the western world. I would challenge anyone to come up with 3 new n/s routes in Canada that’d be viable outside peak travel periods, (arguably 100 days a year) with a 160+ seat aircraft in an environment of $60 bbl oil, without a substantial feed / flow network behind it, (and recall, network connectivity isn’t exactly the strong suit of all the various ULCC’s out there. Something to do with inflating costs......).

Launching transborder ops from the get go? See Flair for details. Their winter 2018-2019 program was a disaster. It’s already done and dusted and we haven’t even seen Easter yet. Gosh. I wonder why it failed? Doh!

Could the market be stimulated further, even with all the unavoidable, sky high taxes, fees and charges? Sure, provided the delta between new entrants costs and the incumbents is wide enough to profitably and sustainably offer low fares. Swoop is hovering around 6.4 cents casm net fuel. There’s some technicolor dreaming going on if new entrants think they’ll be meaningfully be able to get much below that.

With the same costs, which will only increase if focus is placed on Canada’s notoriously high cost airports, including YUL, YYC , YVR and of course YYZ, it’s a matter of who has the pockets to fight the war. This ain’t 1996 - 2001 when the incumbents were basket cases. They can easily withstand the fight, and with Swoop’s lower fully allocated costs, the whining to the Competition Bureau won’t get very far. I

I’ve never met an investor who is prepared to, let alone enjoys losing profuse amounts of cash fighting a battle with multiple established competitors who have economy of scale working for them, with the same cost structure in a commodity business in an already overserved market, where, unlike Europe and the US, there are no meaningful gaps / voids in the market to be exploited.

They’ll also have to coerce cheap Canadians to fork over a whole new level of ancillary fees and charges. Spirit gets well over US$50 / c$65 per trip. No one in Canada gets close to half of that amount. Canadians hate being nickel and dimed and will run to the media at the first opportunity to complain about it incessantly. Read any Cdn major news website on a slow news day to see evidence of this on a weekly basis.

Had this been the environment WJ launched into in ‘96, I seriously doubt they’d have succeeded. And I was there, front and center.

We shall see.

I find it rather strange. Given the desire need for B737Max8 replacement aircraft, why didn't Smartlynx took over this Airbus (at least for the summer season) and just transfer the frame to JETLINES for the 1st Dec launch?!

18. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS (continued)
 The Company cancelled 750,000 unvested RSUs.
 The Company executed a letter of intent with a South Korean special purpose fund (the “SPV”) led and established by InHarv Partners Ltd. for a financing of up to $14,000,000 which will consist of convertible debentures (each, a “Debenture”) and 1,785.71 variable voting share purchase warrants (each, a “Warrant”) for every $1,000 of principal of the Debentures. The initial tranche provides for gross proceeds in the amount of $7,000,000. Each Warrant is exercisable into one additional variable voting share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.56 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the date of closing.
The Debentures will have a maturity date of 36 months from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and the principal amount of the Debentures, together with any accrued and unpaid interest, will be payable on the Maturity Date, unless earlier converted. The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, payable in cash annually, unless earlier converted. The principal amount of the Debentures is convertible into variable voting common shares of the Company at the option of the holders at a conversion price of $0.56 per variable voting common share. The Debentures are subject to an origination fee of 5% payable in variable voting common shares based on the market price at the time of issuance of such shares. The funds will be available to the Company once certain conditions have been satisfied. The Debentures will be secured by a charge over the assets of the Company.

So they paid about $2.7M CDN before terminating the original 2 320 leases and can apply that for a future lease. It’s evident the termination was done because they knew full well that they’d be leasing parked aircraft for months that would do nothing but drain their bank account.

With Westjet, under Onex ownership, apparently is going to focus more on the premium market, building its business class, expanding its eastern Canada and overseas markets, and become more of a direct competitor to Air Canada, perhaps this is an ideal time for LCC airlines such as Flair and Jetlines to enter the Canadian market.

I understand Boeing's in-house marketing department put that livery together back when they were planning launch with 737s. Quite ironic if so.

Didn't know their slogan is "Flying your way". What's that supposed to mean? Aren't they flying their way?

Interesting. I would have thought they would fly out of Abbotsford because if the lower costs.

Granting of slots? Since when is YVR slot-controlled?

With all the delays, one wonders if they will ever enter service. It has been many years ago since they initially said they would start service. Maybe a better slogan for them would be would be "Flying no way"

Jetlines has been at this since at least 3Q 2013 when they had many people execute long since expired NDA’s on a business plan that fundamentally hasn’t changed much over 6 years and still has yet to produce a thin dime of earned revenue, let alone an asm.

Their plan is ridden with strategic mistakes that make it obvious they have learned virtually nothing from those who have been successful before them.

There isn’t a year ‘round viable route for a 160+ seat aircraft from YVR that doesn’t already have at least 2 heavily domestic capitalized competitors already operating it, one with costs already significantly below the other.

Their start date is insane. One couldn’t pick a worse time of the year to start an airline in Canada.

On a full seasonal basis, without domestic feed and without a “Vacations” product, sun flying is a profitable venture for a couple weeks around Xmas, a week around family day, (esp now that BC family day is now consistent with the ROC), and school breaks. It’ll be a black hole the remainder of the time. See Flair for details.

They must actually believe Southwest and WestJet were actually point to point airlines in their early days.

One couldn’t pick a jurisdiction in Canada more prone to unionization than Vancouver, where “kill the rich” is mantra for most, and is now being progressively institutionalized with the NDP govt. The juniority advantage will disappear within 12 months, if they even last that long.

By being public from the get go, it’s child's play for their competitors to figure out precisely what they are doing and deal with it on a commercial basis. They are telegraphing all their passes.

I stand to be corrected but I seem to recall they have their own proprietary reservations / rms / back end systems. That’ll turn out just as well as every other airline that tried to go it on their own. Unless it was built by the same folks who developed MARS 1 and well beyond, it’ll prove to be a disaster. If it actually works, is robust and scalable, they’ll make far more money selling the system than operating an airline. But don’t hold your breath.

Who knows? Maybe they will pull off a miracle and do something correctly. It would certainly be nice to see a 3rd large airline from Canada.
