Doe anybody know about corporate shuttle flights like the Daimler Chrysler DTW-STR flight? It would be interesting to see where and how these operate.
I used to fly on a LAT charter TU134 between VIE-PRN operated by the OSCE. I have also heard Chevron operate between Atyrau and Budapest.

DaimlerChrysler's Shuttle is called the "Transatlantic Star". It's an A319CJ with extra fuel tanks to make the STR-PTK trip. It's registered D-ADNA (S/N 1053). The aircraft is based in Stuttgart, Germany. It makes 4 roundtrips weekly. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, & Sunday. It arrives @ PTK between 12:45pm-1:30pm with departure back to Germany around 3:30pm. It uses the callsign "Twinstar" and the flight numbers are DCS100 (STR-PTK) & DSC101 (PTK-STR). In addition to their weekly flights to Pontiac/Detroit, D-ADNA shuttles execs between STR-VIT Vitoria, Spain. I believe this is done 2-3 times per week.
Here is a pic of this wonderful aircraft:

Nothing spectacular, but since it operates out of my home airport, I find it worth mentioning:
Cirrus Aviation (a subsidiary of Team Lufthansa member Cirrus Airlines) operates a Mannheim Kiel service for Heideldruck or Heidelzement, don´t remember. The a/c is an 8 seater King Air, and since a short time, the flight is open to book for everyone. I guess the economic downturn affected the corporation´s travel needs, so why not sell the open seats on the free market.

ICI Chemicals used to have an up to 5 times daily MAN-MME service using Air Kilroe Be200s, which later upgraded to J31s. That service was then converted into a normal scheduled service and was withdrawn in the mid-1990s.

OLT operates a weekday shuttle for EADS/Airbus between Bremen and Toulouse with a Dornier 328-110.
WDL operates a weekday shuttle for EADS/Airbus between Hamburg and Toulouse with a BAe 146.
Similar flight used to be operated by JEA/British European with a BAe 146-100 between Filton and Toulouse.
BAe Systems operates a number of corporate shuttles with their BAe 146, ATP and HS125, one of them used to be between Warton and Munich. Another was between Farnborough and Woodford, if I am not mistaken.
CSA operates a corporate shuttle for Volkswagen/Skoda from Prague to Braunschweig with an ATR42.

I worked at the Dayton Airport (Actually in Vandalia, Ohio) near the general aviation terminal for about 5 months in 1998, at that time General Motors had SAAB 2000 that arrived in the morning and late afternoon on a corporate shuttle operation. I didn't know the routing and schedule, I would think in the wake of 9/11 that might be considered sensitive information.
