Hey Debonair,

I think you are referring to Skylink Airways, a new trans-atlantic LCC that is based at IAD. However, the aircraft will operate out of either BWI or JFK. Their first Boeing 767-238(ER), N770WD (c/n 23306/125) , was indeed in SNN for repainting last year, but has since been ferried back to Arizona and will commence route proving shortly. The aircraft was still in the ex-Quantas colors on its way to SNN, but has since been painted in an all-white livery. The titles/markings will be applied shortly before entry into service. Here are some pics of N772WD, although at the time they were taken, it was still wearing Quantas' VH-EAL registration! Laugh out loud

Sisterships N772WD. N773WD and N774WD are probably still in MHV, but I can not confirm this. I just hope that they will operate out of BWI.....would be my dream-come-true to see scheduled 762 flights out of this place again!!  Smile

Here is the link to their website: http://www.skylinkairways.com

Its good to see the old QF B762ERs are finding new homes and will continue to fly the world skys for several more years.

Just a small question if I may? Just wondering if you had ever been on one of the QF 762s? I honestly thought they'd junk them when they got rid of them as towards the end of their service in QF they appeared to be in pretty poor condition.

Hey guys,

a thousand apologies for my very, very dumb mistake....make that one just about all the time! From now on I will try to remember to the abbreviation and hopefully I will never spell Qantas with a "u" again!! Wink/being sarcastic

Its very unlikely that the carrier will operate from BWI, it looks like a JFK operation when you look at their job openings on their web site.
