Please do not use the word Yugoslav anymore. This country does not exist anymore, it's now Serbia Montenegro. Despite the full titles which are still on their planes just use JAT as their airline name

Interesting to see the DC-9 in their summer timetable. I thought they will take them out of service by the end of March?!

NewSwissair,

Thats what i thought too, since the intention of withdrawing the DC-9 was announced for the beginning of April. Perhaps the lobby from DC-9 flight crew and maintenance personnell prevailed for an extension in operation. Nevertheless, March 15th will be the last day JAT fly the Boeing 727 on regularly scheduled flights. I will look into this issue, and reply later.

Boeing 777/747, but it is called Yugoslav Airlines (Jugoslovenski Aerotransport, JAT). It doesn't matters how the state is called. There is also Palestinian Airlines, yet the state is for long called Israel. Nobody would forbid call an airline "Confederate Airlines" in USA or "Zaire Air" in Congo either. BTW, "Jugoslovenski" means "Southern slavic" in Serbian, thus "Jugoslovenski Aerotransport" means Southern Slavs' Airlines. Nobody would forbid using terms "Baltic Airlines", "Scandinavian Airlines", "South Indian Airlines", or other names related to geographical or ethnical position also. Both Serbs and Montenegrans and other minorities in Serbia and Montenegro are part of Southern Slavic ethnic sub-group.

Even though last time I flown JAT-Yugoslav was back in '87 (DC-10/727/737). I really do hope JAT-Yugoslav Airlines keeps its complete title. Its all about history and the airline has a long history of service.
I'm going to have to throw out technicality on this one.

AIR.

You're right Sonic though I think it is not wise of JAT to use the full explanation of JAT. They should have change their name. It doesn't do any good to the feelings ánd expectations of surrounding nations/populations.

Finally got some input from people who know a lot about the status of the DC-9s in JAT. Apparently each aircraft that is being used at this point will continue to fly until its necessary for a D check. In this case, these planes are expected to make an exit later this year.

The lobby from the DC-9 crew was very strong, and their efforts prevailed. The company heads clearly did not want to be bothered with strike uncertainty during the most profitable part of the year! On the other hand, the termination of 727-200 from the fleet is going as scheduled.
