Re: Airbus, Boeing, Douglas, or Embraer?

Well, if you have A32X up there. There is no reason you shouldnt have 757 aswell.

The 752 has more seating capacity at 200, whereas A320 at 180.

Its also 20mill cheaper. And has a longer range.

Re: Airbus, Boeing, Douglas, or Embraer?

I see I'm the first to vote...XD
I voted to A320 family aircrafts.
In my opinion, they are the most efficiant models, looks good and serve greatfully.

Buy the DC9 for your airline! Some are still stored in VCV and MHV

Well, I know that the A321, the A320, and 752 can operate successfully at FCA, but the biggest issue is seating. A 752 maxes out at 231 passengers, an A320 at 180, and an A321 at 220, but it's more of "Can I sell that many seats on an aircraft?" and "If I can't, can I sell enough to make a profit?" I'm trying to stay away from the 200+ passenger range for the time being simply because the route structure (FCA to Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake, Houston, and the LA area, still deciding on which of the 6 LA airports to use) really only supports aircraft ranging from 50 to 180 range. Northwest uses the A319 and A320 successfully for flights out of FCA to Minneapolis, and the ERJ's are used to fly to Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake, and Atlanta. The Boeing 737 hasn't been in FCA since Delta Express replaced their 732's with ERJ-170's and CRJ-200's.

Neutral, I'm sure my plane of choice will get me to my destination one way or the other, maybe even faster than the other.

Great! I wish you great success. Why are you bringing this up again? The original thread was locked for a reason!

I'm with united and Julian on this one, I think this thread needs to be locked. Until I see Air Northern Planes on Airliners.net, I, like most everyone here over the age of 15 will remain big skeptics on this.

The thread was locked because people decided it would be cute to test knowledge of aircraft that I was not interested in using, nor had intimate knowledge of.

The only thing that I lack right now is investment capitol and the full incorporation license.

No bs, just more intimate knowledge of FCA than other people.

They aren't heavy maintenance, plus you can still order the smaller models from the factory, something Boeing has shied away from. The only way to get the smaller and often older models, such as the 300/400 is to lease them or buy them used, since Boeing has focused on the larger and longer range 700-900 models.

Actually, I had a good thought at things. Unless you're planning to offer a service that usually doesn't overlap with the bigger guys you can afford to run you out (they did it with the likes of Skybus and Indy Air) and yet, at the same time, can actually bring in money (so you'll be looking at operating types like a Jetstreams or B1900Ds). I don't think anyone believes you, and if you're looking to lease right now, why the do you not have any capital? If I were a leasing aircraft company, I would just look at your proposal, and l would just write that I can't possibly lease you my aircraft, while trying not to laugh. It's reasons like this, and the fact that you started this and talk like you are starting an airline (when most of us here can sense through this very easily) that people, not just me are getting on you about this!

It's also not incorporation licenses that you'll need too. In the states, you'll also will need a few more documents than just that to prove that you're allowed to operate, such a Certificate of Operation.

Your site looks like one of those freewebs deals too, like, it was just a "pretend" idea. The "investment" part of it is something I find currently funny:
"Be a part of the Air Northern founding family, invest in Air Northern stocks and bonds. Bonds starting at 2.59% for 2 years. Currently, Air Northern is selling shares of its stock for $10.00 USD per share. We will be selling stock at Kalispell/Glacier Park International Airport Summer 2010. Look for our booth."

You sell stock...At a booth...at the airport. Ok, in that case, which listing you guys are on, and what is the symbol I should look out for on it? I mean, if I were to invest in this, I would like to know how the company is performing financially at least 5 times a week.

As I've said, until I actually see this thing actually working, and operating, I'm going to be as skeptical on this as I can, and if I could, voice it too. You see, it usually takes most serious airlines at least 2 years before they become commence operations, and this is considering the airline already had a good amount of capital in it.

Also, looking at your site, you are also claiming that you are going to lease 6 BAe J32s, 5 DC-9s and a 737-200. That is starting 12 flights off the bat, 20% more than the total amounts of flights that Kalispell has! Very few airlines, unless started by a rich tycoon type rarely start out with more than 2 or 3 aircraft!

You forgot one thing though. The 737-300 is 737-700 and from a quick scan of a resource shows they both ahve a seating capacity of 149 in a dense (packed config). And if you want something smaller, there is always the 737-600, which basically is what replaced the 737-500 in production (and eventually B717-200).
