According to what has changed on the website www.baltia.com the company "expects" to launch services in 2012.
* Their aircraft (remember, a 37 years old 747-200), has been painted.
* The routemap now only shows LED-JFK (earlier, several other Eastern European fantasy destinations were included)
* No more word of anything extravagant (upper deck lounge etc.) on the aircraft, just the usual Y/C/F.
* There will be an FF program called "Golden Rooster".

So, could this be an indicator that indeed FAA approval might be granted soon?

Yes like they have for the last 15 years.... maybe they'll be ready for a winter 2012/2013 launch...that should be fantastic season for a LED/JFK route on a fuel sucking 747-200... as much as I would love to see non stop JFK Eastern Europe, I have no faith in this venture ever launching...its almost like the worlds longest practical joke...
