Howdy Wendover Productions! I enjoy watching your videos. I am also an admirer. However, many of the assumptions are not entirely accurate. That is because I have many years as a pilot, formal training, and practical experience starting a commuter airline; and working for national and foreign carriers. I had excellent connections with the great legendary airlines and their leadership. I am in the R&D stages to launch another one. It would be great to establish a friendship with you? Take care!

What you’ve missed about ‘Crisis’ stress testing and levelling the playing field is that governments have stepped in. And different governments with different amounts mean the international nature means no levelling has occurred or will occur.

Greater Bay Airlines (headed by Cathay Pacific's former CEO) is probably trying to do a Virgin Australia now by applying to take over the 100+ routes of the now defunct Cathay Dragon (formerly DragonAir)

I think the biggest problem to airlines is state owned airlines who don't need and often don't make profits and reglementation designed around such a state company that doesn't need to make profit

In 2005 Indigo airlines was born and in 2006 commenced its operation. Biggest airline of India with a fleet size of close to 300. So your research around no airline came in existence in last decade was little off. Thanks

Jetblue did a pretty good job starting from scratch and competing straight away with a better product and better price, unlike some other carriers which start with a compromised product and a price to match the lower quality.

If you are starting a new Airline you want a name for yourself, not any investor would do this. Perfect example is Kingfisher Airlines. What I am waiting for is an Airline with a fleet of Supersonic Aircraft's like the Concorde. No matter what Airline it is now everyone is using the tube and wing design. Time to push the envelope out instead of seeing who can fly the longest route. It was getting ridiculous with 17 hour non stop flights etc. Now a worthy start up would be to Start a Cargo Carrier, Amazon has been buying up old AA 767's and adding to their fleet. During the pandemic their fleet size increased by almost 50% !!. Another major beauty of a Part 121 carrier is that most of their out of scope/manual repairs and things can be accomplished by their own Engineering group instead of going back to the OE for everything.

*Ansett was the only major full service carrier, other than Qantas the market leader. Virgin Australia collapsed because they had a ex-Qantas CEO who want to go head to head, rather then a more budget slim downed option. Also leasing all your plant and equipment is always a great idea....

Here's the easy way: lead a revolution, overthrow the state, seize and nationalize all airlines. Now you have an airline, and without corporate greed running the show, those plane tickets will be cheap, so you can dominate the international market as well.

i must say in this video he's talking lot of rubbish (as usual) thinking that airlines cannot be funded: there are so many developing countries and setting up an airline there can be easier. moreover, there are not so man startups in the cargo aviation which, in my opinion, can be profitable too. he just wants to make it sound like starting an airline is impossible and in the end he launches his sponsor that has no connection with the whole video.

I just hope we would live in a world where all necessary information is democratized such as these manuals that these consultants are making a fortune of. I work in an advisory form and i notice for a legal firm for corporate law its mostly really the thousands of templates they have for a contract or agreement. I just hope someone would make an app where you just input all your basic details in a contract and thenselect a type of contract and it will recommend all provisions with explanation on what does that provision ensures or protects. We are in the age of information and these things should be shared freely
