such a shame it was killed off....as are most who try to take on the incumbent carrier
I think NZ´s "small size" population base (one needs consistently high loadings to make a frill-free services work) had a lot to do with it too after KIWI opted to become a SKED carrier .... especially operating out of our provincial rather than principle centres, but, "YES" .... it was a great idea and I, too, was one of those whom was saddened by KIWI´s demise.
Sadly also .... I never got the chance to fly with them
.... althogh I did know, and have some drealings with, Ewan WILSON at HLZ.
Had he/Ewan stuck to charter flights concept (per KIWI INTERNATIOBAL TRAVEL AIRLINES .... which KIWI international was founded as) then "maybe" he might have lasted .... or at least lasted longer.
So wish there was a P3D compatible Classic 737, there's only so much fun you can have we a freebie 2D panel
"IF" .... you have an FS2004 base (or even an FSX one), then try ours (HJG´s) out.
We spent almost a years fine tuning the FDE´s "prior to" releasing our B737-300/400/500 flightline last December .... supported also by Benoit´s highly aurthentic CFM56 soundpacks (sepatate versions for FS2004 and FSX) as well .... in ordre to try´n give everyone the very best B733/4/5 experience we could offer.
Unfortunately we/HJG can´t offer FSX users a panel option .... but as I mentioned above .... there are non-HJG offered panel options available at FS.COM and which are based on the very same panel we opted to use .... just search "Targan UNUTMAZ"
Here in Oz, there were many attempts to become the third domestic carrier
Don´t forget COMPASS .... and COMPASS 2 as well
