Flair Airlines General Discussion and Updates

I wonder how good a deal it was money wise ... and whether Boeing solicited bids quietly from bigger Boeing customers and 777 Partners just pounced on it.
 
Flair strikes back with $50m lawsuit

Flair Airlines has filed a $50-million lawsuit against several plane-leasing companies over what it claims were unlawful seizures of four of its aircraft over the weekend.

Going to have a hangar, three aircraft and open some new routes from yyc to Vegas, Phoenix and PV, Mexico.

Some fighting words from the CEO here: https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/not-eve...n-canada-s-crowded-market-flair-ceo-1.1915023

'“I think there will be churn. I don’t think every airline is going to succeed and grow," said Jones in an interview."
