    Can the co-pilot do double-duty as a fourth FA? Or maybe they’ll load a mechanic who, as Matt suggested, also loaded the bags.

    If you want to start an airline, why would you start out with acquiring the name of a dead carrier?

    its hard to compete with the Ryan Air model in this country b/c Ryan can sell all that duty free, and fraudulent lotto tickets as most of their flights are international short hops. Also, ever seen a good Ryan Air landing, their FT are like barely 20 yo Eastern Europeans and their pilots barely 30! But they run a tight ship and make more $$$ than any other airline.

    I wonder if payment options will be the same as the old days… I used to fly PE and get on the plane, then write a CHECK for the fare and give it to FA. after take off.
