How Close Did ATA Come To Getting Boeing 747?

Sun Apr 09, 2006 2:43 am

Last year there was some of posts about ATA replacing it's L1011 fleet with Boeing 747-200. I was wondering how close did they come to having a Boeing 747 fleet. Since 1994 I always wanted to see a B 747 classic in ATA colors. I just wanted to know was ATA really planing to buy 747-200 to replace there Tristar fleet or was it a rumour?

Even if they did - you'll never see one in classic TZ colors.  cry

Not very ... someone probably threw a ball, ran the numbers - and quickly forgot about it.

I know it was discussed as an option, and correctly so. All options need to be reviewed by a company in a crisis.
