If you were the CEO of an airline...

Iโ€™d start an airline based in the Dominican Republic called Aero Dominicano. It would have inter-Caribbean flights to places in the Caribbean, and flights to the Americas.

Hubs
Las Americas International Airport (Santo Domingo) - MDSD
Punta Cana International Airport - MDPC
John F. Kennedy International Airport (New York City) - KJFK (Focus City)
Miami International Airport - KMIA (Focus City)

Fleet:
B1900D - 19 seats - used for Inter-Caribbean flights (10 in fleet)
737-700 - 131 seats - used for Dominican Republic-Americas flights (20 in fleet)
A321-200 - 191 seats - used for popular Dominican Republic-Americas flights (6 in fleet)

Destinations

Aruba - Queen Beatrix International Airport (TNCA)
Bahamas - Lynden Pindling International Airport (MYNN)

United States - Miami International Airport (KMIA)
United States - Newark Liberty International Airport (KEWR)
United States - Orlando International Airport (KMCO)
United States - Providence International Airport (KPVD)

On all flights, fried plantains or Yaniqueques would be served as snacks. On longer flights, Dominican meals (and meals of the destination/departure country) would be offered as well. Numerous beverage options would be available.
737 and A321 aircraft would be wifi and IFE equipped. IFE use would be free, however you would pay a small amount for a movie. Wifi use would cost $7USD. One checked bag per person (under 50 LBS) would be free, as well as all carry-on bags.

If I was the CEO Iโ€™d name it Anchor Air and fly small Inter-City hops within the UK and give service to small airports located on islands around the UK such as the Isle of Man, Oban, the Shetlands and Jersey.

I would mainly operate Twotters, and Dash 8 Q400s and maybe even the E170 for longer distance travelsโ€ฆ

If I was the CEO of an airline, i would restart an airline named Ansett Australia, it would operate domestic flights within Australia but also international routes to other countries in Oceania, the Americas, Canada, Indonesia and Europe. This carrier would be not a low cost carrier but more like JetBlue or Southwest Airlines.
