Anybody know much about them? I saw this plane (N69741) in SJU 2 weeks ago, and had never heard of them. How long have they been around?

Planet Airways is a charter airline from FLL, they have a fleet of 727-100's and 727-200's the exact amount they have of each I don't know. I don't know what they were doing in San Juan the day you saw them but during the summer they operate charters from San Juan to the Dominican Republic and Orlando.

Apparently they moved their headquarters from Fort Laurdale to Orlando.

I believe I justed posted on this within the past few days. I'll retype it.

Planet Airways operates a fleet of 5 727-200's and 1 727-100

N1910 727-023 09/09/66 (Former AA)
N69741 727-224 11/18/80 (Former CO)
N69742 727-224 12/09/80 (Former CO)
N79745 727-224 05/21/81 (Former CO)
N893AA 727-223 08/07/80 (Former AA)
N894AA 727-223 08/22/80 (Former AA)

The later 2, N893AA & N894AA were just recently acquired, just within the past few months. N893AA & N894AA were retired from American on November 1st, so these are new to Planet Airways.

Planet Airways is solely a charter operation. Last fall, they provided sports charter service for the Penn State football team when they traveled to away games.

On 3/2 I saw a Planet Airways 727-200 going from EWR-Nassau in the Bahamas. It was a spring break charter. Delta was the handling agent for the flight.

Yeah I'd imagine they did a lot of spring break charters along with Champion and USA3000.

They used to be at FLL, thats where their founders are from. Impressive website at:
