I don’t know how these could guys find a banker who could arrange for them the finance for a highly potential failed project!!!3rd May 2014 at 09:26 #529336
Story started nearly a year ago
Recently the Bombardier aircraft look to be testing OK so the FT covered it.3rd May 2014 at 19:04 #529337
Well I’m sceptical but very interested should it come to pass.4th May 2014 at 08:05 #529338
I’m unsure whether LCY could accommodate such a large fleet of aircraft.6th May 2014 at 11:39 #529339
It’s the old adage about how best to create a millionaire – get a billionaire to invest in an airline.10th June 2014 at 10:32 #529340
A good analysis from CAPA (who else?) (10-6-14) about the new all-business London – New York start up airline Odyssey.
“All-business class North Atlantic airlines. Will Odyssey Airlines’ epic tale end in triumph?”
It should be noted that CAPA has also done(6-6-14) an analysis on a start up airline flying the same route from Paris.
“All-business class North Atlantic airlines: Dreamjet seeks to avoid L’Avion’s Paris-NYC nightmare”
This compares it to the failed airlines which flew from London and PrivatAir which flew for Lufthansa, Swiss and KLM.
OpenSkies from Paris is also mentioned.
While on the subject of all business aircraft CAPA(29-5-14) has also looked at the new offering from Qatar on the Doha – Heathrow route.
“Qatar Airways all-business London service. An attempt more likely to succeed than others were”
