I am just informed, that the ACMI deal between British Airways Wolrd Cargo and Atlas Air is apparently not being prolongued by the British Government. Does anybody have some background?

If you don't want to post it openly, send me an e-mail. No bullshit mails please...

Why would the British Government have a say in this deal? The last I heard BA and Atlas were very happy with one another. Atlas operating a 747-400F on behalf of BA from MAN-HKG.

BA just applied to the CAA to extend the lease of the second B747-400F (N494MC) for another 12 months. T There has been no decision yet.

The procedure is that all UK airlines wishing to lease foreign registered aircraft have to apply to the CAA, then the CAA publishes the applications so interested parties can object (for example if a British airline can provide a suitable alternative aircraft -the application will be rejected etc) The decision usually takes about 4 weeks - this one should be decided within 2 weeks.

Currently awaiting decisions on the use of foreign aircraft are;
Airtours 2 A320s (Skyservice) 1 B737-400 (Air Belgium)
Air 2000 1 A320 (TransAer)
Britannia 1 A320 (TransAer) 1 B757 (Britannia AB)
British Airways 2 B747-400s (Qantas) 1 B747-400F (Atlas Air)
British Midland 1 BAe146 (Air Atlantic) 1 ERJ-145 (Skyways)
Monarch 1 L1011 (Air Atlanta)
Sabre Airways 2 L1011s (Air Atlanta)

They are usually granted as during the Summer there are few spare aircraft, especially in the size category most airlines require here.

BA is very satisfied in their deal with Atlas and ready to expand it. I believe Industry journals, for cargo carriers, will confirm this next week. Also Boeing will probaby deliver the 12th Atlas -400F, N412MC, next week. Let's see who gets that one.
