    "Little Airlines, Big IDeas"

    http://time.com/3583132/little-airlines-big-ideas/

    Little airlines, big ideas. I was reading the following article in Time magazine earlier this morning. It goes on to talk about the new start ups such as Iceland's WOW airlines. But we've been down this road before.

    EOS
    L'Avion
    MaxJet
    SilverJet.

    Just to name a few. But these were, as far as I understand low cost BUSINESS carriers.

    Here comes the newly created La Compagnie, flying all biz class 757s w 74 seats. Charges about $2000 round trip NY-Paris.

    I looked up Eos, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eos_Airlines Can't find their price point but isn't this quite similar to whats already been done?

    Is it me or does it seem we are just trying to reinvent the wheel?
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    At least L'Avion survived long enough to be absorbed into BA. There's another one of these - Odyssey, or something like that, who want to use Bombardier C-series to serve long-haul all-F service out of London-City.
