Hmm, this is really odd, or maybe I missed it but tonight JAT operated a flight from Gander, NF to New York/JFK on a 722. Is this a normal thing?

here's a link

[if that doesn't work go to the trip.com's flight tracker. Make sure the airline pull down list is on all, not major. The flight it JAT 100.

thanks

I am 99.9% sure it is NOT a scheduled flight to New York. They would use the DC-10 and it would be direct and more importantly tell people about it! My best guess is that it was probably Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica going to New York to pick up his "Statesman of the Year" award. For all those in New York, I'd love to see some pictures....

I didn't know that a 722 can make a transatlantic flight. BTW, didn't the Yugoslav government have one or two Dassault Falcon executive planes? Isn't it more appropriate/efficient then the B722 for Kostunica's flight? What did Milosevic fly when he went abroad (Dayton, OH or Paris for instance)?

They do use the Falcons but it is quite a small plane. When Milosevic went to Dayton I remember video footage of him getting of a 737-300. I think they used a 727 this time because of all the reporters that are going. Also, since the trip continues on to Washington a lot of government minister are also on board.

As far as the trip is concerned, I assume the flew from Belgrade to Shannon, Ireland and re-fuelled there. Then they flew from there to Gander, Newfoundland, Canada and re-fuelled again and then finally flew on to New York.

That's my guess... I mean, what else could it have been...

This flight was listed as JAT 200, and did arrive from Gander. I assume it was not scheduled, since a 727 cannot make it nonstop. Does anyone know when the nonstop service starts?

I hear June 15th but it's not official at all so don't quote me on that...

Nope, I live next to JFK, so it was seen from my window. The same 727 returned on 5-8 as JAT 100. Has it returned to Europe yet?

Nope, it was off to Washington. Kostunica is visting Bush and the White House. Was it fully painted or did just have "JAT" on the front and was white all over? Did you catch the Reg. by any chance?
