Anyone knows who is Atlas Air leasing B763s to? Noticed an ATLAS B763 passenger version at a gate in Miami for 2 nights in a row. I heard ATLAS was flying B763s passenger charters from IAH to Angola. Interesting venture, any specfics about ATLAS passenger services?

The IAD-LAD flights are operated by 744's. The 763's have done a few charter flights between the US and Europe so far, don't know what the future plans for the 763's are.

There has been an Atlas 763 here at IAH recently though. Its not uncommon to see 3-4 Atlas birds at IAH. Typically 2 gold schemed Houston Express 744s for the IAH-LAD and then typical painted 744s - and the 763.

According to an Argentinian forum a couple of last weeks' AeroSur VVI-MIA rotations have been operated by an Atlas 763. So I guess they had some issues with their own 762.

I would think, of course, Atlas has their own pilots, but do they have their own flt. attendants?

No, they contract them out from a crew agency. I guess you can call it agency.

Thanks for the interesting facts! B763 looks quite attractive on ATLAS livery.

Spotted an Atlas Air 767 @ VVI on Nov. 24th around 09:15 on parking position off gate 6, and a friend of mine indicated that it was serving MIA for 5L as their "Sharko" went tec.

Atlas took over from World on the Sonagol "Houston Express" flights. World had the scheduled charter contract for years before Atlas.
I know with World you could earn United FF miles, not sure if you still can with Atlas.
The IAH-LAD route is for the Oil/Energy industry. Houston's big airport code should be OIL  Wink

You still can earn UA FF miles. There were five Atlas 744s at IAH at the same time this past Sunday.

When I was flying with KLM Cityhopper FRA>AMS on my way to ABZ in August, a complete Atlas crew was flying on the same flight, dead-heading back to Houston via Amsterdam. They were a very lively bunch! From what they were saying, I understood that they had flown into Germany the day before on a troop charter to the AFB at Ramstein where another crew had picked up the aircarft and continued to Middle East.
