From the Herald:
http://www.smh.com.au/text/articles/2006/01/02/1136050394483.html

"ONE former Ansett employee has not let soaring fuel prices, OzJet's troubled start or increased airline competition dampen his dream of launching his own domestic and ultimately international airline.

Far from it. Jens Buche now plans to get his carrier, RMA Gold Airways, off the ground this year from his home office in the Melbourne suburb of Doncaster.

Mr Buche even reckons that by 2008 he could expand Gold Airways internationally with a fleet of giant Airbus A380 superjumbos and next-generation Airbus A350s. The list price for an A380 is around $US285 million ($388 million).

"Gold Airways will fly to all capital cities in Australia and some popular regional centres and eventually overseas," Mr Buche said. On its website Gold Airways has a list of destinations on its mock-booking engine, ranging from Sydney, Melbourne, Mount Isa, Gove to the remote West Australian mining town of Paraburdoo."

Gold Airways has been telling us this story for over a year now. The WayBack machine lists websites going back to 2004. Have a look at this link and you will be able to see the various incarnations of its website http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.flygold.com.au, I'm not counting on seeing these guys fly anytime soon

So? Looks OK to me.
You are not part of the Gold Airways Investor Relations team are you?

You joined AFF today and your only 2 posts to date are to a current thread on GOLD Airways and Reg Ansett Gold Airways, which was buried 2 1/2 months ago and you resurrected now, defending them on both posts. You really feel that strongly about them? On face value they do not seem to be the answer to Australia's duopoly problem.

They have nothing to do with Reg Ansett. Why do they even mention the name on the website? Is it to attract some potential sucker's attention? I don't think anyone on this site is silly enough to fall for that trick!

Yeah JohnK I have the money to make it fly :D
If I have mistaken your intentions I am really sorry. :oops:

To me it just seemed like you are defending/supporting a company that is not yet off the ground and seems to provide dodgy information on their website.

Again I am sorry if I have mis-interpreted what you said.

HMMM I would like to know who actually knows the whole story behind this new airline.
Instead of slamming them even before they are airborn how about we give them a go,everybody gave Oz Jet a go and now they are gone.
If it is taking them a little while to get going maybe they are usng their brains to get a good team of people behind them.
Fair go for all I say.

Another oldish threat reopened. :) However I notice that the link in the above quote has been killed by what apears is the website owners request. I Wonder what they want to hide.

On another note. The site now looks like it was done in publisher and uploaded. If they have no capital to design a decent website. How do they plan to fill the wing of a plane with fuel (Let alone buy the plane).

They are hoping that foolish, gullible people stumbling onto their website will click on investor relations, be impressed with the company's mission statement and then invest their hard earned money on this airline that does not even have a decent website let alone a prospectus!
