    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.

    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.
