OT: Jet Vision Airways

Another "I'll believe it when I see it" airline claims it's about to launch service from NZ to LAX and SFO but as yet has no official website (only twitter and facebook) and a Vodafone mobile as contact telephone number...

Well, considering that jetvision.com is owned by "BWE BELL + HOWELL", and flyjetvision.com was unregistered, I submit that this isn't likely to be real...

Yep, the "founder" is younger than I am! Of course, age makes no difference in such things, it's about ability. However, the Western world doesn't see it that way and sadly I doubt he'll succeed with his ambitious dream!

I got the impression it was a school business project also, having to come up with a company and market it.

Wasn't there a kid in the South Island wanting to launch a domestic airline a couple of years ago? Wonder if it's the same guy.

Was that the airline named kiwijet? Or something similair? They were planning on launching like 4 years ago but pacific blue and jetstar have stopped them and now they're run out of money. They were planning on doing flights chc-akl from as "low" as $139, however that included beer and wine... they did have some interesting concepts however

Kiwijet was an American guy.

The one I was thinking of was Kiwi Pacific Airline which was "run" by a different guy to Jet Vision. When media turned up at his (parents) house asking questions things started to unravel.
