As Mr D says. Although it would be normal for someone who adopts the name of a small intelligent robot to consider an electronic bit of thingymestuff as an entity in its own right, sadly PPRuNe is not a he or a she and it cannot start an airline.

If PPRuNe was an airline, and we assume Danny was the CEO, who would fill all the other positions? What equipment would it operate? Where would it fly to? (Australia excluded of course, because it doesn't exist!)
The Cap'n (was that the nom de guerre?), formerly of this site, wanted to start an airline from here and even, if I recall correctly, invited expressions of interest in jobs at all levels. He planned to use Lockheed 1011s bought at discount rates. If anyone wishes to be in touch with him, try HM Breakwater View Hotel, Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. He was sent there a few years ago, not long, on the Queen'spressing offer of a life term of free accommodation. I suspect he is still there.
No passenger would be allowed to express an opinion unless suitably qualified
There would always be at least 3 boring passengers a week striking up conversations about speed camera related issues and at least 3 boasting about their wealth by starting such conversations as "What car do you drive?" because they own a Ferrari ( or are at least thinking of getting one)
The aircraft would never get off the ground on account of the weight of heavy robust watches on the wrists of perfectly manicured hands
The "Jetblast" section would be in the cargo hold full of straw and the Irish, with resident sage Tony Draper holding court 24 hours a day with amusing anecdotes and observations on life
The aeroplane would be flown "by committee" with disagreements resulting in personal insults in an attempt to ascertain who has the greatest knowledge.
Anyone who wanted genuinely to find out more about aircraft operations would be accused by cabin staff or management of being a jounrnalist pinko and told to sod off to Jet Blast or barred
Any one who complained about late departures or arrivals or had a difference of opinion with the management, would be barred
Every flight should have a brick sh1thouse aboard, to deal with mouthy pax. Slide up to them, with a smile on his face, hold their hand whilst gently talking to them and at the same time slowly breaking every bone in the hand.
Location: Why oh why would I wanna be anywhere else?
"This is my airline. We didn't ask you to come on board. You do as we say or you can sling yer hook. Go find another airline if that's the way you feel. You might well have paid for a seat but what I say goes and you're not having your money back. And if you dare to argue with me you're not even going to get beyond the check-in desk".
"Other than that - Welcome to PPRuNe - mi casa su casa"
I only fly PPRuNeAir because of the quality of the other passengers.
