I changed my mind. I think I would buy 15 A380 fitted it with 853 seats in economy class (more if it can get certifications from FAA) and 10 A330-300 with 355 all economy seats (8 abreast seat with 30" seat pitch).
 
I'll start a flight from Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali) to several destinations such as: Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo Narita, Beijing, Shanghai Pudong, Hong Kong, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Jeddah, Abu Dhabi, Istanbul, London Heathrow, Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, and Moscow.
 

Taking advantages of cheap labour in Indonesia. Flight attendant would get paid around $5 to-$8 every hour instead of the industry standard of $20 or more. Food would be minimal (1 Main Course, dessert, and non-alcoholic drink). The ticket price would be 15% to 20% cheaper than competitors. IFE would be minimal as well (10 movies, 5 tv shows, and free Slow Internet). Free 2 bags with maximum weight of 20kg each.

 

Pretty nice deal to crush the Kangaroo and Bali's market. Imagine round-trip flights from Sydney to London Heathrow for AUD 1.600, -. Pretty sweet deal eh?
 
Also, I would start dometic services with 30-50 A321-100 with 220 passengers in economy class. No food, no drink, no IFE, and 1 free bag allowance for 20kg (if you bought international flight within the same booking, you get 2 free bag allowance).

It's a price for round trip flights from SYD-LHR not CGK-LHR.

 

Their ticket price are bit expensive these days, AUD 2788 for SYD-LHR.

If I could vote for two airline types, I would.
Option 1.
Operate short flights in the UK with CASA CN-235-100 for higher demand and Cessna F406 for lower demand.
Profit margins of around 30 percent possible

Option 2.
Operate European and world length flights out of Luton and Gatwick. Luton for Europe and Gatwick for long.
Fleet.
787-10,A319-100lr, a350-900r,a319neo...... And more

Philippine Airlines is no better. They both are 2* airlines, but since Cebu ticket prices are way lower, they are the better values.

Pretty true, Philippine Airlines could compare with USA airlines and still lose though, and  5J could give you better snack choices (if you pay, that is) and the prices are very cheap compared to other US airlines

Nope, Cathay and Qatar offer roundtrip ticket for AUD 1700 and AUD 1900 respectively for next year flights.

It's not as expensive as you tought it would be. Malaysian airlines is one of the most expensive one while middle eastern airlines tend to be the cheapest.

Philippine airlines is 3star I think. So are Cebu. Lion Air is 2 star, and so are Ryanair. That's what you're talking for 2 star. CEBU IS DEFINETELY 3 star.

So I've been doing some further research into setting up my own airline and the prices are looking very reasonable ^_^ . If someone would please lease me an ATR 72-500 I'd love you forever.

Why not leased A321 or A330? I know a market segment in certain places you might be interested in real life.

I personally wouldn't like to go beefin' over turf. If I got a 72-500 I could act as a middle finger to Ryanair because they can't land in some Irish airports. Alternatively I could start Ireland's first year round link to Moscow and St. Petersburg.

I don't think ATR 72 have enough range for those flights. You should bought CASA CN-235M instead.

No it wouldn't, the ATR is for flights to the UK. I'd look at an A318/9/20 for Russian flights.
