I'm not that interested in VA:s myself, but I just want to say a few things anyway:

  • You sure have gotten all the way in for a full blown graphical profile. :D The only thing that's a bit off is that some of the text is a bit hard to read due to the low contrast, though I fully get that full white on the dark background wont work. The work by the way is, apart from that, absolutely beautiful. Also, "Yes, you are in first class!" brings a smile to my face. 8)

  • You seem to have found an area to fly in that is very suitable for a new VA to start at, in essence populating it with a bit more traffic, as well as a niche that seems like a good start.

  • You could register yourself as a pilot and start gather traffic. I think pilots will be a bit more inclined to get going if they see that there is at least some traffic. :wink:

Hey, thank you for repliing. I take your suggestion into consideration.
I just like to know where the text on the website is difficult to read, because I took care of lisibility. I probably forgot a (or multiple) page(s).
For the other points, I will register as pilot and begin the traffic as soon as I can.
I'm looking forward to see you in the airline, although you seem not be interessted.
Maybe you'll have a second though... :)

Sorry, I did forget this. It starts right at the main page. If you change the text colour from #595959 to something brighter, for example #808080, the contrast and readability will increase a lot while the text will still not be bright white.

Nice video by the way. :D Though I always wonder about sources and permissions.

Still smiles at "Yes, you are in first class!" 8) Brilliant slogan. :D

Thank you for repliing, I'm working on the site to change the color.
It seems you know a bit webs.com, so I just had a question : why the robots.txt disallows all robots ?
I heard that it disappear after 7 days of using it, but it's already 2 weeks and nothing has changed.
Thanks for your replies

--- EDIT ---
Just a thing I forgot :
Though I always wonder about sources and permissions.

I found the the parts which are filmed in real life on youtube. Just read the Terms, Article 8A :
When you upload a work on Youtube, you give the right :
- to Youtube [...] for the whole world to use, copy, broadcast and realize diverted works. [...]
(translated by me from french terms)

So the work your broadcast on Youtube isn't yours any more : the whole world can use it, and even for a commercial use. :!:
I don't think I violate any right. I hope... :roll:

Swanair now operates from a new Hub !
The American world is desserved from KJFK.
We also search a Hub Captain, to manage it. If you like to be this one, you must have 20 hours of flight with us. The most experienced pilot will be taken in case of multiple candidates. More info: swanair.tk

Cheers, and happy flying !

Hello everyone.

I would like to announce that SwanAir has a new CEO. Also,there are some changes regarding the flight schedule,flight reporting and fleet.

The aim is to make the whole system much more efficient and simple. Also,we have plans to expand and make this airline much more popular.

As before,SwanAir provides luxury,first class flights to many European ,Asian and US airports,using only the best of the currently available aircrafts.
A winner is a dreamer who never gives up...
