Like all of you, I'm not on the hook financially for this business venture, so for pure entertainment I sure hope this is not a hoax. (Which it probably is)
But assuming it's not... I'm surprised anyone would want to give the Air Florida brand a rebirth. The name does not hold much nostalgia, like Eastern for instance. And if memory serves me correctly, Air Florida did not exactly leave a glorious legacy... What next, a new Valujet rebirth five years from now?
That said, if they want to operate domestic MD11 pax flights I say have at it!

Hey, if it means there will be a PAX MD-11 flying in the USA I'm all for it.
Exactly! Funny to see so many argue otherwise on an enthusiast site.
If this non-conventional business plan were to fail in 18 months, who cares? I'll be sure to find a way on a few LAX
legs in the meantime.

Sorry, what reaction did you expect when they propose MD-11 service between Los Angeles and Clearwater?
For a self described "AVgeek" of 16-20 age range, I would expect hopeful optimism as your reaction. You missed out on the domestic DC10/L1011 era, didn't you?
Make it stop? Why? Are you the prospective CFO for this reincarnation? Billionaire investor funding the operation? Okay then... So if nothing else, enjoy it for comedic purposes. (Assuming this were ever to become a reality)
