Are We Starting an Airline?

Chris Groh
Stacy Cannon

On this episode, we try to give you an insight into the conversation that happens when people think about starting a company - specifically a regional airline company. Joining us for the conversation is Stacy Cannon, a former regional airline president who is using data and innovation to think about the future of airline travel. We talk a little bit about her experience over the past year running an airline right before and then throughout bankruptcy. But we really dive into how she would start a regional airline company and how it would operate, if she could take what she knew now and start over.

As a listener warning: we make A LOT of assumptions and some of them may be flat wrong - but this is how this kind of conversation goes. We're thinking about doing a few follow ups to this episode in the future validating some of these episodes and seeing what could shake out. Let us know what you think.

This one is going to be another experimentation episode, so let us know what you think.
