    Ed Wegel can kill another airline after somehow managing to ‘convince’ investors to part with millions again. The man has 9-lives.

    I’m feeling skeptical. Yes, the North America – Latin America market is ripe for a well funded LCC to stir things up. Today I find it’s often cheaper to fly to Asia than to Central or South America. But the key word is “well funded”. This project looks like it involves people who have tried and failed before in the LCC space, and may find it very difficult to generate the needed backing to operate during the time frame before profitability can even be a hope, and in an environment where established players will not concede market share easily.
