The whole startup and website looked very unprofessional. The choice of 747 seemed more like it was the CEO's favourite aircraft as opposed to making sound business sense to use.

They had announced it by itself on Facebook: click

And for me the website looks even better as e.g. the website of China Airlines... but it is a landing page

Glad I was able to the see their 744 parked at IKA.
Which turboprop aircraft is that? Neither a Q400 nor an ATR72, it reminds me of the stalled Indonesian project. On other parts of their fb page, they show the MA-60.
Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...

Must say, their Facebook page responds well to probing comments.
