Canada Jetlines

Recommended Posts

So the article posted Sept 30 was not as positive as it suggested. Canada Jetlines will never be an airline. And Swoops creation to make it harder for new airlines to enter the market has worked.

Swoop gone by the new year?

I doubt it... this is exactly why it was created. To have a pre-existing threat to anyone looking to bring new $$$ to the ULCC-ish market in Canada (and to chase Flair around).

The result of a lesson learned in the mid 2000s when JetsGo wasn’t heeded until they were big enough that it took multiple years of over capacity (and everything that comes with that) before they ceased operations.

Canada Jetlines postpones launch over financing challenges, lays off staff http://dlvr.it/RH8Nmp @GlobeBusiness

That's too bad.  I was hoping they'd get up and running, last 6 months and then strand 10-15,000 passengers all around the continent before going bankrupt.  A good opportunity to educate the public, the media and the investors lost.  ? 

I guess this means the investors have already been educated.

Wow...the last link in the above post is really worth taking  the time  to read  the entire thing...............

 

 Para 42......Here, FYI ,is someone we all know...?

 

42. In June 2018 it was reported in the airline press that Neeleman had, along with others including Robert Milton, Michael Lazarus and Henri Coupron, formed a company to launch a new low-cost airline. The company is Breeze Aviation Group, a defendant herein, and the airline’s tentative working name is Moxy. Moxy was reported to have raised initial funding of $100 million USD, and to have purchased 60 new Airbus A220 aircraft for delivery beginning in 2020, to provide nonstop service to secondary airports located near major metropolitan areas, such as Providence (Rhode Island) near Boston, Stewart Airport north of New York City, and Gary (Indiana) near Chicago. In an article published in October 2018, Neeleman was quoted as claiming that the new airline will eventually fly hundreds of routes within the US and from the US to Europe and South America.

Obviously it doesn't include any statements of defense, but those are pretty damning arguments.

I have a feeling you wouldn’t play it the way Johnson did though. I’m really surprised he isn’t named in the suit.
