Family Airlines
Flight Crew Application
Thank you for your interest in joining Family Airlines flight crew. Family Airlines has been receiving approximately 500 resumes per week from pilots all over the world requesting an opportunity to join its flight crew.
In order to cover the cost of reviewing these resumes, we have decided to charge a fee of $50 to submit a formal application and obtain a priority number. This fee will not only help Family Airlines cover its cost, but separate those who are truly interested in obtaining a flight crew position.
Please understand by submitting this fee along with the formal application that will follow, is by no means a promise of employment.


What a fu#$king joke

What a great idea. Next time I am bored out of my ass on a layover, I will joking fill out applications to random airlines. How funny.

I downloaded their application. The CEO is a chiroprator.

Quick summary: they're planning on 100% load factor, 50% of revenue from advertising and two B747s flying opposite directions on MIA-JFK-LAX.

It's just goofy.

They had to include the CEO's resume in the DOT filing and on the second page (below "custom house builder") you'll see that he was also CEO of Family Airlines in 1992, which was voted "best" of something by Consumer Reports.

Goofy as well, since it never flew.

I give them 12-24 months before they close the door. Why anyone would want to start/operate an airline these days is beyond me. I wonder if they know what the failure rate for startup discount airlines is over the last 20 years................

They don't even have planes yet. And yes...when they close the doors before they start up, they will keep the application fees. Kind of an ornate "Get Rich Quick" scheme

I'm not sure but I think Family Airlines was the name of the outfit Frank Lorenzo tried to start in the early 90's. ALPA took him to court and he was banned from starting or running any airline in the U.S. Anyone recall that?

If the CEO of this Family Airlines was the CEO of the old one, then this place needs to die a quick and painful death quick.
