Hi there,

could anyone out there provide me some more detailed information on the B707 owned by John Travolta:
- Who is the operator? Some contact details would be great.
- What kind of license is being used, i.e. are commercial flights allowed or just private ones?
- What kind of seat configuration is it fitted with?
- If any, which department of Qantas is responsible for the aircraft?

Thanks a lot

Sven

I think he operates it himself, when I see it at BNE back in November, im pretty sure it was himself flying it then

Seating config i think is in his own design

Thank you all.
If it had a commercial licence, it would be a great plane for a sightseeing flight... What a pity.

You know ... you take away the overhead bins, and that inside space just gets huge ... fantastic looking interior ...

Imagine the inside of a 76 or other widebody without the center and side bins ...

Hi Sven, good to see you apperently are still preparing interesting flights for us.
Don't give up too soon on John Travolta.
Last year in Basle when I flew with the Super Connie, I chatted with the owners of the Miami Legend Air DC-7 about pleasure flights on it, and Carlos Gomez was very easy on that, he said as soon as they made it airworthy, there would always be possibilities to get paying passengers on it, some juridical tricks like memberships of an organization or invited as 'friends' and so on. It might be a bit his Latino "we can fix anything" attitude but still... worth considering to try and work something out with Travolta.
Any other news, last years enquete looked promising (Ukraine Il-18 and so on).



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

What would be the difference? Instead of charging a fare, how about "chipping in for gas"?



Yay Pudding!

John Travolta is the operator and this is where you can find him http://www.jumbolair.com/

The plane is GA

Like those pictures show, it is rather luxurious. MTV's Cribs actually did a thing on the plane. It is basically like a flying 2 bedroom apartment

Other than the paint job and sharing some MX expenses, I don't think any are. I belive Travolta has his MX done at the big MX company in SAT

Actually, since he has a commercial pilot rating, John can already ask that you chip in for gas

I read in the paper today that he has offered to fly the Socceroos to the world cup in Germany in his plane!

John Travolta is a goodwill ambassador for Qantas and I also read that they do the mx of his aircraft.
When the A380 was in Oz he (and Kelly Preston his wife) got to go on a flight in it during one of the demo flights!

I was told that 99% of it is done at MIA when I talked to a couple of the crew members when I shot this.

Not unless he also has a Part 135 or Part 121 certificate. You're welcome to hire him to fly your own plane, if you happen also to have a luxury 707 you want flown around Big grin

neither one of you is entirely right. You don't have to have a commercial license to ask someone to chip in for gas. As a private pilot you can fly with passengers and ask them to chip in, as long as the costs are split evenly with the Pilot paying an equal share.
