Boston-Maine Investigation

There is no news on this subject. We guess it takes a long time to do an investigation like this. It probably doesn't help that the Transportation IG stepped down in February. Anyway...we're keeping our eyes on it.

no im not
they have a 121 certif they can fly domestic and intl and they have aircraft that are paid for ...clean out the crappy execs put some money in them and go place people want to go ......there you have it ....trying to get a 121 certif from scratch is very very expensive just my 2 cents

I agree with Jeff's earlier comments. From what I have read, Pam Am Clipper Connection has good aircraft, certainly some name recognition, and a 121 certificate.
All are assets in today's airline industry. The management appears totally inept to say the least. Clean house with management, get some good, solid airline people in there and see what happens. I would think they could do well in the right markets and certainly could have some potential in airports like Youngstown, Worcester, Rockford, etc. I am sure the folks in Youngstown would not be anxious to have them back after being stiffed (and I dont blame them)

i dont believe youngstown was stiffed .....there inept managers promised service but i dont think money changed hands ....they also tried worcester before and didnt work maybe other cites to worcester would be good i think a rockford-dulles might just work

OK, it does have good bones, but there are too many ifs with that airline. The 121 certificate is valuable, but gas-guzzling 727s? Please. The J31s are workhorses. And I don't think the Pan Am name is as valuable as it once was.

It would take a total housecleaning to get this dog to really fly.

Well in the end, with the FAA Investigation, our management made the right decision, we will not give you any marketing money until the investigation is ended, well its still going on.

We do not want them back, its sad too, they got the 727s and sure this could be a big lie, but even said we could be a hub to the northwest!!! Damn You Pan Am!

i agree with ill feelings that yng may have ...NO on the hub thing that is crazy ...yng economy isnt that good ....im not putting down your city i graduated from high school in wooster...the pan am name is destoyed they could just market it under boston-maine ...we will see what happens i think guilford or pan am railroad or whatever they are called today doesnt want them to make money anyway until they do the misery will continue

Again, if I had a dime for every start-up I've read about...

I think that people -- for some strange reason -- are still enamoured with the perceived glamour of owning and operating an airline. Those days are long gone, but the dream dies hard for many.

And there are too many smaller cities -- like YNG -- that fall victim to the promise of air service from these fly-by-night virtual airline operators.

A strong bank account and a top-notch management team are not a guarantee of success.

There's still way too much capacity out there, although it does look like recent attempts to raise fares are finally starting to stick.

Perhaps the craziest travel sked I have been a part over the last 10 days has been the reason for the sparse posts. More to come!
