I just hope they don't ask pilots to pony up $200K like Kiwi…what a scam, get your employees to fund your airline. The executives on their website is less than impressive, especially the COO.

An imminent threat to the already established charter operation known as Miami Air International, that was ironically, started by ex EAL pilots and airplanes. ?

I'm thinking they see opportunity in the Caribbean market as several companies such as Air Jamaica and Air Aruba and BWIA have gone by the wayside over the last several years... Don't think they'll be after our (Miami Air) sports teams, Incentive groups or military and UN customers... That doesn't happen overnight.
