““[Bill Gates] has been historically one of my best supporters…One of my favorite e-mails he ever sent me…I proposed this crazy project. And he sent back this two-line response: ‘This has got to be the craziest thing you’ve ever suggested. Please proceed.’” ”
FBOs Join New Partnership
Seven FBOs have left the Million Air franchise system and switched to a new brand name, Odyssey Aviation, having joined in a marketing partnership with the Odyssey Aviation Bahamas FBO at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. Odyssey Bahamas also used to be a Million Air franchisee. The seven former Million Air FBOs are owned by Ken Allison, who joined the Million Air franchise system in 1992 with his first FBO at Louisiana's New Orleans Lakefront Airport. Allison's other newly branded Odyssey FBOs are in Asheville, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Lafayette, La.
