Anyone Know The Latest On Cameroon Airlines?

Sun Oct 02, 2005 11:44 pm

At one point UY was really a good carrier, and then I heard word that things were going very bad and aircraft were being recalled.

Just recently I think I saw that UY was banned from French airspace.

Is there any future for Cameroon? They used to have good links in West Africa. I don't know if they still have these flights.

Their 767 sat for over one whole week here in GVA, as Mr Pual Biya wasn't allowed to fly into French airspace with that aircraft. He reportedly took a smaller jet to complete his journey to the French capital.

Paris is still operated using leased aircraft.

What happened to their 757?

Ouch! I would have cancelled the trip to make a point if I were him... assuming he is the Prez.

Dunno about the crj, but if I recall, they had wetleased a couple of Embraer 145s from KLMExcel a few years ago

I heard some consultants were sniffing around. Are they restructuring or something?
