Hooters Air is going bust as a scheduled airline. (Doh!)
The carrier isn’t filing for bankruptcy, it’s ending scheduled air service April 17 and going charter-only.
The Chairman of Hooters learned a basic lesson about the airline industry,
- The chairman of Hooters of America … said he hoped to “have a little fun” in an industry that had always fascinated him.
- “The flying industry is in a terrible mess,” Brooks said. “I’ve got a fair amount of money, but I don’t have enough to fix this animal.”
He could have gotten that just from the old joke that the quickest way to become a millionaire… is to start off with a billion dollars and invest in an airline.
And it doesn’t take much to know not to hub in Myrtle Beach, South Caroline.
