Re: VLM Airlines bought by management

A319 and LCC? No don't think so, don't be a follower but a leader!
It's better to focus at a niche market like they did before 8-)

Main problem for VLM is cash and no investor to buy Jets in the first place.
A F50 cost almost nothing these days and they can keep expanding slowly.
Even Panda Holding is owner of VLM and Denim there just isn't enough financial backup to invest in Jets.

Aren't they planning this for a couple of years now? In my opinion they are way too late to restart production of this plane designed back in the 80's. And I am rather sure they will not be willing to invest vast amounts of money in a new (or at least upgraded) design, only to be beaten up by Embra...

Brussels airlines don't have to worry, same thing happened in AMS and see how things go now. SPL got there own low cost gates (H) where BMI Baby, Easyjet, Sky, Jet2 and others are now boarding. KLM is not having any impact on the fact that the lcc are now at SPL. They did lower their prices but beli...

A short list this year since flying with a 2 month old A318 is not that comfortable yet :)
However in November the AMS-LIM-AMS non stop with 777 from KLM, that is going to be a long ride ;)

Everybody knows Ryanair in Europe.
Some love them, some hate them.
I like them but it is low cost.
Don't think Ryanair is going to stick it's nose in low cost transatlantic flights.
