WOW air founder Skuli Mogensen is seeking US$40 million to resurrect the defunct carrier and launch to 13 European destinations by the end of June 2019, and later to the US. The fleet would consist of seven aircraft by spring 2020 and 10 by 2021, initially operating for EU carriers on lease contracts. Skuli, et al, aim to own 51% of the venture.

If mr Mogunsen has 40M himself to invest, he should have invested that into WOW Air 1.0. Mabe it wasn't enough to save the airline, but at least he would have avoided a few Thousand stranded passengers.

I personally think he's too crazy to do so, WOW air 2.0 can be VLM Airlines 2.0, so nearly 1 year of ops and then finally second demise.
