No it wouldn't - WT don't have ETOPs certification!  Insane

And of course there most likely will be one of two outcomes in a few years.

1. Fall behind on lease payments (or stop paying entirely) and the lessor repossesses the aircraft.

2. Run aircraft into the ground and park it on the tarmac somewhere at LOS to rot.

Oh come on people... Isn't Nigeria supposed to be on the forward section of its one step forward/two steps back march into the future? What's wrong with them flying a nice aircraft until it's repossessed?

Any news on whether or not the country will disintegrate into ethnic violence?

This summer they flew with South African Airways on flights from LOS to JFK, and I remember those flights as being pretty packed.

Nigeria (the country) could have been a world power by now. At independence, it had the same PCI as South Korea. Even with $B of petroleum, it remains a backward barbaric crime-ridden hell hole. The airline of course has faired no better.

I agree of course with all of the above commentary. Nothing cynical about predicting the future operations of NA based on experience. I agree.....possibly some late model 742s or 743, maybe a couple of A340's.....reinauguration of LHR/CDG/FRA/JFK etc with much fanfare....then extremely poor on-time performance, losses, repossession etc.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
