Main problem was the planes were so bashed up by tens of thousands of flights that they were all flying bananas and the interiors proved to not be interchangeable, so come Friday night and time for trips to the beach, the customised interiors were not necessarily in the same city as “their” planes. In the end it wasn’t worth the hassle.

Go on, tell us more about said business model.
You know, since they bought Whole Foods.
And become a television/movie production house.
And bought a home security company.
And started Prime Air.
And started producing its own electronic devices.
Amazon's goal is to be *THE* go-to for consumer spending. Travel is consumer spending.
Don't put the idea out to pasture.
