Omni Air International 772 At PHX

Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:59 am

Saw a OAE 772 land and taxi over to T2 gate 5 where UA is handling it... Any word why this bird was in PHX and it looks like Bermuda is the next stop..

Looks like she's heading to Nashville after Bermuda. Spotters beware

What kind of an incentive trip is PHX in July? That is like sending top producers in Phoenix to Alaska in January. Although I will say that you can get a top tier resort and a round of golf at an extremely good rate in the summer time.

That's the incentive, going to Bermuda.

We had an Omni 763 at Port Columbus (CMH) do a Bermuda trip this past week. Came in from ATL and went to Bermuda last Sunday then today came back from Bermuda and went to BWI. I didn't mind, biggest aircraft I've seen in a long time here haha I was just wondering why.

The 777 came back to BNA this afternoon, and headed back out to BWI. Was wondering who they were carrying.

Feel sad for World. They did these in various summers of previous years, and State Farm had been very happy with them...

Feel bad for the employees of World Airways. Too many of them have lost their jobs due to the poor management of the company. More crew were released today.

How many more now? I don't think poor management is the proper term for it.

According to flightaware she came DFW to PHX and then to TXKF. From TXKF to BNA.

I would hope the incentive trips would be longer than one day, but I do not know....

The trips tend to be a week with all expenses paid by State Farm. They fly the various agents and their guest to a certain city, that's where they catch their flight on the charter to their destination. State Farm has taken their people to Rome, London, and Vienna in the past, along with many other great places.

This year the program is not quite what it used to be. Less of everything- you would be surprised.
