I think my major concerns lies with the fact that we know nothing about their financing.

I don't think there is anything extrordinary about the destinations selection, but if they have a decent business plan, it could all work. The survey sure feels like a nice easy way to hold the wolves at bay while they secure their financing. Cheap advertising if nothing else.

Interesting it will be. Hopefully we hear more about the money side of things in the weeks to come.

Are you sure that this list is Festival's? I'm pretty apprehensive about this upstart myself...It's basically a Sunship1 with different MGMT and a bigger potential destination list, and Midway instead of O'hare. But here is the list that I got...

It's the one we got. So yes, I'm sure about that.

Any other info from these guys? It seems they are pretty low key to say the least.

Any comment from Ryan about a possible connection?
