At least it is not a red white scheme. Nice to see different coloured livery to grace our skies!

I'm with Paul.

Another U.S. investment firm bringing a European LCC model to Australia (which doesn't have population and infrastructure spread countrywide) is asking for trouble.

MAX8s seem too big for regional population numbers. (A220s more suitable perhaps?)

Might be better to name it "Buckleys".

I have to agree with those who suggest a smaller aircraft may stop them becoming Air Bankrupt quite so quickly. One review has an interesting typo.
https://onemileatatime.com/news/bonza-a ... australia/
Realistically speaking, how much demand is there in the undeserved point-to-point markets that Bonza plans to operate in? And is a 186-seat Boeing 737 MAX 8 really the plane with which to do something like this, rather than a smaller Embraer E195 or Airbus A220?

Indeed those little towns don't deserve a MAX-8!

Timeframe (from even not getting off the ground) will be the only thing you’ll get odds for.
