OpenSkies and L’Avion: Beginning of the End?

Someone over at Airliners has posted the copy of an internal memo from the head OpenSkies that sounds very, very, very much like the type of memos we used to see at Eos right when it was getting bad:  They’re not taking delivery of their 5th airplane thereby cutting out any expansion in the near future, they’re eliminating flights on slow days through the holiday season, they’re moving their headquarters to Paris, and they’ll have full codeshare on both the OpenSkies and L’Avion flights (even though the products are pretty different).

Much like Eos, it’s a great product at a fantastic price.  Unfortunately, given the cost structure and economic environment, that’s not nearly enough to succeed.
