Premium services

What is the market size for premium services and which of them are viable?

Maxjet - recently bankrupt, shut down except for charters.

Eos - bankrupt, shut down.

Silverjet - still flying. Are they profitable?

LŽAvion - still flying. Are they profitable?

Eurofly - what are they doing?

Privatair - flying. They shut down some lines, like Houston, only to open others, like Poona. Their 767-300ER, however, is for charter rather than scheduled services.

Singapore Airways A340-500 - flying. Planning to refit as all business this month.

BA Open Skies - is the plan still going ahead?

BA A318 - is that plan still going ahead?

Any other serious projects?

Silverjet has just done a refinancing deal of some kind; enough to pull the shares up to 16p from under 10p. There has been talk of LH buying it to add to its business class only operation.

No, you're quite right about BA and L'Avion. The regulatory application is here.

Talking TransAtlantic only ...

Silverjet ... New York
L'Avion ... New York
EOS ... New York
MaxJet ... New York, Washington + LAX, LAS.

Perversely, I want to go to Washington DC, not bloody Newark.
I don't want to then have to drive for hours down the East Coast, I don't want to get an internal connection, I want to go to Dulles [stamps foot for extra effect ]

I want to travel Premium, I'm spending my own money, and I stuck with MaxJet until it fell over. Now I have to go Virgin or BA.

What is it with New York? What's wrong with Washington?
I can tell you which is the better holiday destination, for a start
