Santa Barbara's 2nd 767 Livery (LOT-Hybrid)

Mon Dec 18, 2006 4:27 pm

Guys check out Santa Barbara's latest addition to its fleet... a former LOT plane. Somebody knows if this bird is wet or dry leased?

I like the fact that the engines have SB's logo like the 752 and the now retired Dc10s.

Leased out for the winter. LOT does this every year due to very seasonal demand on their transatlantic routes.

Hmm, It's ok. I prefer the livery without the stripe.

Glad that S3 finally got their promissed second 763. Hope they can use it as expected.

Cheers.

I'm not a fan of their livery but I'm glad they're using another 763 as they previously announced.

A bit off-topic...Luis, do you have further information about the Lufthansa/Aeropostal rumor?

More interesting than the white boring one leased from Icelandair...

Is there a possibility this bird will be seen at MIA?


The titles would have looked better under the stripe. I love hybrids but I have to say it looks better in full LOT c/s.

Are you sure or just speculating? I doubt that S3 would spend so much money on painting a 767 to only fly it for a couple of weeks. Dry or wet lease?

No, sorry. I'm in Mexico right now. My VH contact is a person that I occasionally meet at the gym in Caracas.

Most likely these are just stickers. Note that LOT livery was not removed (you can actually see LOT under white). Lease out for winter (previous year with Air Italy) as well as SP-LOB with Royal Brunei and SP-LPF with Aerosvit.

Wow, very nice. I think the stripe makes the liveyr even better! Amazing how the livery of another airline can improve the livery of another airline. Nice combined livery of LOT/Santa Barbara!!

There is a chance. Islas Airways has had it's eye on running a weekly CCS-MIA-TFN flights for a while. Now that Venezuelan-regiestered planes can fly to the United States, Santa Barbara can fly the route with an Islas codeshare, pending being granted traffic rights by Spain (the US will grant MIA-TFN rights easily).

Now, if this happens or not is totally up in the air, but Islas Airways has not been secret about their desire to connect Florida and the Canary Islands. More importantly than providing a non-stop link for the Canary Island community in South Florida, it opens up an important new tourist route.

Interesting, they're a small airline in the Canary Islands.

Yes, but they 100% owned by Santa Barbara Airlines.
