Here's a dupe of my post from the two other recent SkyLink threads (that's it for me today, I promise -- I've got work to do!):
Let me start out by introducing myself. I am a manager at SkyLink headquarters, and several of us actively browse (and infrequently post under less obvious user names) aviation forums on the internet, especially this one.
This company was started by aviation enthusiasts, albeit with differing levels of success and at different points in their career, with the same passion for aviation you all possess. Else, why would we be here?
While you are probably skeptical of this "paper airline" right now, and maybe even question the validity of this username and post, I assure you that this doubt will be put to rest as we go forward with developing this airline, and as you continue to read my anonymous posts and see these assertions become facts over time.
First things first:
The lack of information about this airline -- seen in the low profile our management team has kept, and the rudimentary (if not downright amateur Big grin) design of our website is... deliberate.
Folks, understand that we only have once chance to make a first impression on potential customers and prospects -- including you. Our marketing plan is not half-baked. In fact, we are going to be doing a lot of surprising things to generate (as free as possible Big grin) publicity in the coming months.
Most importantly, I would like to point out that what little of us has been in the media has been, well... misinformation. BUT that's by design. Sure, the Post (and other earlier newspaper) articles have the STN
part right, but by no means are any other details correct.
We don't have our certificate yet. There are still proving runs and other backend work to accomplish. So, technically we *are* a paper airline; however, we are *far from acting like one*. We are going full speed ahead with the development of our product that will, frankly, surprise.
Expect to see more about our plan, brand, our route(s), our aircraft, and our website as we get closer to certification.
Here's a hint:
jetBlue Airways, Inc. did not start out as such.
I look forward to keeping you all in the loop... albeit as discreetly as possible.
Don't believe everything you read.
