    The site says they are running in conjunction with an existing commercial carrier....I wonder who. I don't think it's Air France, because even if it was, they wouldn't be to brazen since it would be illegal for a foreign owned airline to operate in the US, as we saw with all the crap Virgin America had to deal with.

    I think they just used (probably stole) an AF photo to slap their own name on it.

    Phil, you know..... I spotted that too at the bottom of the page.... I am curious about that little tid bit as well. The rumor of this is that they plan to use something in a 757/767 size catagory of airplanes..... That leaves a few options on the table though as to what carriers. Vision? Maybe.... They are extensive in Vegas.... Ryan? Maybe but I somehow doubt that because their hands are full with gov flying as of late, North American/World? I don't think they would do something like that for a few reasons..... Who would that leave? I somehow doubt any major or LCC would be getting onboard with this.... Not to mention, the breif service description lends to me thinking these airplanes would require extensive cabin mods.... I call BS on this.

    And wouldn;t the "Luxury" thing mean new cabins? Otherwise they would have to use an existing luxury airline such as Emirates? LOL

    Interesting then that they have a 777 on the front page with their scheme and througout the video.

    The site says they are running in conjunction with an existing commercial carrier....I wonder who
    Noticed in their video that the 777 taxiing looks to be a Singapore Airlines bird. That would explain the luxury airline. And I believe that if the flight orginates outside the country, stops in LV and continues to JFK then there isn't a problem with US regulations. Though they would not be able to sell seats on the LAS-JFK and JFK-LAS legs.

    LOL never. They make a hell of a lot more shuttling VIPs from Asia back to the US. Sheldon could make some money leasing out that 767 tho.

    I wonder how profitable a 777 on a domestic route will be in a luxury configuration. Just wondering
