Current Status Of African Star Airways?

Thu Mar 08, 2001 12:09 am

G'Day all

I wonder what the current status of startup African Star Airways is?
Lats rumour I heard is that they sold their two ex SIA B743 to Air Atlanta and intend to inaugurate operations in late summer this year with yet uncertain planes.

I really doubt they will ever do it in the air!

I dunno exactly what you mean.

Do you paid for a flight that never departed, or are you an investor?

It's an expression mate.
He means that he would place a bet/gamble that African Star will never happen.

The Feb. edition of Airliner World magazine has a blurb on them saying they're all set for a March 31st start date- so who knows?

Never heard it before, so I missunderstood it.
