They would be the ones to ask if you'd like to charter the Mriya.
Btw, what about the second bird? It was some time ago that I read in "AirCargoNews" that it was supposed to be finished by 2007. Any updates on that?
There is definitely a market for these birds, so I'd sure appreciate to see another Mriya dominating the skies...
