They don't get smaller or taste different...we all just get older and have higher expectations! Walkers crisps on the other hand...!!!

JR

I quote you !!!
Yo are perfectly right, many of them are Off topic or the do not think before writing.
I think Jet rep have solid basis and will have a bright future as competitor of net jet.
Maybe I am wrong but I do not think so.

I believe it when I see it. Warren Buffet type of backup, do they have that?

How long did NJE take to make a tiny profit, compared to losses?

Ill take my money to the state lottery, better chances of winning me thinks.

Id love them to be succesful, since thar means jobs, but...

Wooooooooooooooooooooow, you sound like fun to be around would love to go flying with you fella! It was a little bit of humour to relax the tension!

1) existing companies have made huge investments and are only barely making a profit.

2) only one type of aircraft limits customers.

3) long landing distance of selected type limits available runways.

4) terrible time to raise the large amounts of money required.

5) demand for private jets is dropping with the economy.

If NetJets is having a rough go of it, what makes these guys likely to do it better?

Unfortunately Fischmeister, idiots with glib tongues and slick business plans and fancy Powerpoint presentations who convince bankers ( need I say more) to finance a project, regarded by those in the business as a complete non starter, do fundamental lasting damge to legitimate start ups when they can't raise funding!

TRSS,

Id recon the idiot side more likely with the bankers and others.

It amazes me, with which regulor reoccurence companies do start that make everything better than the old ones. Smile on owners/clients faces, smiles on company executive faces.

Lasts usually a year or two, then most owners do make a summary and surprise, surprise, no perpetuum mobile invented, just regular ordenary business.

I sure hope JR can start and create GOOD jobs, but then I have thought DCA would not lay off people, or Vista would not struggle etcetc. (just examples, nothing personal meant)

Jet Espresso

  • Netjets saw off Flexjet years ago in Europe and now have a monopoly on frax over here.
  • Netjets are now stronger than ever (ok slight recession but they have pots of cash and availability)
  • JR think they can take NJE on head to head in a frax sales situation when Flexjet could not?
  • Surely Netjets will pee all over JR...........big time
  • Or I eat my hat, with ketchup, no espresso....
I dont work for NJE by the way....

Grecian.

I seriously doubt that even JB is planning to tackle Netjets head on. As any insider of NJE will tell you however they (NJE) have chinks in their armour.

JR employs a number of people who held key positions within NJE and therefore have intimate knowledge of their operation, clientbase and the like. No doubt they'll be avoiding the mistakes NJE have made because they saw them happen first time around. I'd also bet they'll be vastly more efficient on the operations side although in some areas that wouldn't be terribly difficult. Training and retaining staff rather than just giving them a desk and phone under the eye of a despot and constantly renewing their 'temporary' contract would be a good start. Remember also that by the time Jet Republic get going any 'anti-conflict' or confidentiality clauses in the ex-NJE staff's contracts that prevented them from exploiting their time there will have expired.

From the sidelines it's going to be interesting to see how this one goes.

anybody out there?

It seems to be very silent on the other side of the fence. No article in March Flight International. No jobs either. Since I'm still interesting in working for them (at least curious) I sent them an email if they are still looking for captains. Nothing heard from them since...

Talking

it has "received a record 200 CVs from some of Europe's leading pilots from commercial airlines and air forces".
Just the leading commercial airlines pilots and ex militaries? The executive lowlifes....arent under consideration?

Chief executive Jonathan Breeze says: "We are seeing unprecedented levels of applications from some of Europe's top pilots and are enormously excited that we are able to attract individuals of their calibre to join the company. Indeed, applications have reached such a point that we have had to appoint additional staff to cope with the interest. The experience of these individuals will be a considerable asset to the company as we continue to grow the business over the coming months and years."
Some of europs top pilots. From the european top gun Lear 60 school or what?

I guess Ill apply as well, just to give them an idea how bad it could be...

Good to see we have the right metrics in place then....6 months after launch and we're issuing PR that says how many pilot CV's we've got. Obviously nothing to boast about yet on the number of coffees sold, or any revenue generated.
