First, it looks like Bulgarian airlines might be able to return to the US skies in a few months. A little detail here:
Has anyone heard anything about Bulgaria Air's (or other BG carriers') long haul fleets' plans? Bulgaria Air only has 8 or 9 B737's. I don't see how they'd be able to fly to the US direct with them.
One historical question. I know that Balkan Airline used to fly to New York with a fuel stop along the way. Could anyone tell me details about their flights? What did use to fly (Russian or Boeing)? Where did they stop for fuel? I found only one Balkan picture on a.net (approaching JFK). It was a B767. I didn’t know that Balkan operated B767. I would guess they did for a very short period of time.
