All First Class 757!

Just found this photo today of the interior of one of Air 2000's all-First Class 757s!

Although in the Summer all Air 2000's 757s seat 233 in high density layout, in the Winter G-OOOU and G-OOOX are converted into this layout, with 80 First Class seats and 12 economy seats, but the economy seats are not sold and are used for staff, as most flights with these aircraft are "heavy" crewed with 3 pilots, 8 cabin crew, a chef and a mechanic, plus tour guides etc.

Quite a transformation from their normal role!

The planes are used on around the world flights for luxury tour companies like TCS Expeditions. For these flights they often have the titles of the chartering firm applied to their side.

This type of aircraft will become even more common in the UK later this year as new airline, Newlines begin twice daily operations from London-Standsted to New York-JFK using an 80 seat 757 with a similar configuration. I only hope this venture proves a success unlike some other similar airlines.

How about linkups with Legend and Midwest Express 
Do they fly into JFK to connect?

Are there any similar aircraft out there, where they are used in both normal airline layout and all First Class at different times?

Two questions:

1) Were both of those pics taken off of the Air2000 website?

2) Do you have any more information on "Newlines"? They sound exactly like my idea!

Thanks much!

1) No, the bigger photo was strangely enough taken off the website of Hugh Mackay, a famous carpet manufacturer in the UK who make the carpets for Air 2000 and many other companies plus the Royal Family etc! Thinking about it, it's the strangest place I've ever found an aircraft photo!
The smaller photo is taken from the Air 2000 website, on the Special Charters section, accessed via the Useful Links page

2)Newlines adertised for management staff earlier this year. They have a website at;
However it only features their logo and an email link at the moment.
Startup is expected in November, with a fleet of 2 B757-200s seating 80 passengers in an all Business Class layout, flying twice daily STN-JFK.
Air 2000 have been approached to operate the aircraft on behalf of the company as they are the natural choice, being experienced with this type of operation, (flight and cabin crews have extra training etc) they are also the only airline in a position to provide a back-up aircraft to cover for maintenance - most companies don't have this type of aircraft lying around!
The airline will be based in the UK, but has American backers - who else did you tell about your idea?
That's all I know - the venture is being kept very hush-hush until closer to the launch!
