If its a LOCO regional why not Emb175's, however i'd love to fly a MD-82, despite this being huge in comparison

Back to the original topic, shall we start debating and throwing some basic facts in the air i.e. fleet, base(s), original routes, general biz orientation. My suggestions are below and everyone can add to them and we can then pick + chose what we like and settle on a plan - it's not going to be easy, i forsee squabbling and tantrums. Fleet type: Q400 Base: London Stansted First Destinations: - Geneva Edinburgh Nice Belfast Dublin Orientation: LOCO, as originally suggested By the way, thanks for the Gill info NCLRules

Can we add Leeds/Bradford to that list. As this is my local. Also we don't have a STN link from LBA in the real world.

can't we be original? stansted is so boring! its ryanair after ryanair. its gained an image of being a loco airport, so can't you choose a half original base location?

Well, had a thought - doesn't matter if it wouldn't work in the real world so lets go for somewhere original, as mentioned above, like Bournemouth, or Exeter or maybe Manston. Anyone got any other ideas on a fleet?

I would operate between airports in the UK.
What with? By this do you mean we just fly between various citie sin the UK like Eastern Airways, theres a thought, why not use Saab 2000's and Jetstreams. Where is peoples opinions and ideas today, I was expecting more replies than this. However stupid the idea put it here. Ive warmed to the VA idea and can't wait to get started

Well aircraft will be a good idea, it is an airline. ;) Look at it this way - Eastern Airways use Saab 2000s and Jetstreams, easyJet use 737s and BA use 757s. I think you need to a find a name for the airline, work out where it will operate to, then consider the aircraft.
You make out i'm running this all, i'm just trying to get ideas on the table so we can make a start on the technical stuff. Why not an Alpha One virtual? Ironic, a va of a va :D
