    David Neeleman, founder of JetBlue and 3 other airlines, is starting up another airline. Per CF, Southwest should be concerned. New airline, named Moxy, will concentrate on secondary airports and will fly the CS-300.

    Configuration of CS-300 to be a lot more attractive than WN's 737 (6 across all rows). While CS-300 will have approximately the same capacity as the 737-700 (between 125 and 145 passengers) they will be arranged in 4 separate configurations--including lie flat beds in one configuration!!!

    Before you naysay such a wacky concept, Cranky Flyer says that he learned a long time ago to NEVER bet against Neeleman. This should be interesting. Oh, and I agree with CF. Airline name needs to be changed. Moxy is kind of an outdated term.

    It's a bit of a stretch to say Neeleman founded Morris. He came into an existing family run company and spruced it up for sale to Southwest.

    Azul... they're in a market where they couldn't help but be successful with weaker competition.

    Jetblue is his one true claim to fame.

    It's definitely a bit outdated, but at the same time I kind of...like it? Maybe just a little.
