OPO-JFK Air Luxor

Thu Aug 18, 2005 10:14 pm

Just knew in Amadeus system that Air Luxor is operating a weekly flight from OPO to JFK with an 762ER leased from LAM (Linhas Aereas de Moçambique). C10 Y265.

But, from September 04, this airline will operate this route with a 757 in Y214.

Is Air Luxor a new buyer of this Boeing aircraft or it´s leased from another airline???

Awaiting answers,

They have been using a North American aircraft for the past month or so.

Hi,

LK is known to have leased North American 757s like this one:

so probably it will be this the one used.
I'm quite surprised about the LAM operation, though, because:
a) The codeshare LK/LAM was just broken up some days ago, and LAM is highly dissatisfied with Air Luxor;
b) LAM has no 767 at the moment, their 767 is leased to AeroMexico
c) LK is known to also have leased the 767 form North American airlines, maybe this is the one?

regards

LK has been hard to keep track of at times. They started LIS LGW and LIS MAD and dropped those routes, and I am sure there were others. Now I see OPO JFK and FAO ORY which are interesting , but I would be afraid to book with them too far in advance in cae they dump the route. They also run LIS OXB as L8. They seem to be a very successful charter airline, and I also recall seeing photos of an LK 320 in Afghanistan ferrying British troops. OPO JFK 1x a week is OK for tourists, but not business people.
Breakfast in BHX, lunch in FAO, dinner in TIP, baggage in YYC.

I wish that it would be served by the A330-300, I love Air Luxor's livery!
