1 Year, Air Lambert,1st 75 Winglet Pic And More!

Tue Jun 21, 2005 9:36 am

Hello,

I know it is unlike me to post more than the monthly press release but some recent developments are thread worthy, and it is also sentimental time as we look back after our first year of existence! Also, come Saturday, things will be manic as the first Air Lambert lifts off for its Long-Haul venture. So, some news:

Fleet Organisation 2005

B73G Departure

With G-LMEB operating its last flight for Air Lambert earlier this week, EA is due to follow by the end of the Summer. The B73G's were very 'on the moment' buys as we were given a fantastic offer by Boeing due to an Airline that we had taken over's order cancellation. They never fitted with our fleet and we are looking to rid of EA too, it is open to any VA.

For Winter 05, 3 A318's will replace the 73G at EDI.

More 757's?

Now, more than ever, with new options such as winglets, for the Boeing 757, we see the significance and potential success of this aircraft. The aircraft offers the lower capacity some routes require. It is much more economic to operate a full 75 compared to a half full 330. We are looking for possible routes that could be a hidden success.

As our 757 is long haul assigned, winglets were a sensible option. We decided to fit G-LMZA with them. They will increase the range and economic success of the aircraft:



By November 2005 our fleet will be ideal in compatability, still offering our pilots a variety of types to fly around the world:

A318-6
A319-6
A320-8
A321-6
A330-6
B757-1

New Website

Here at Air Lambert, we feel the need for a revamp of our website. This will take place over the next few weeks. Things to expect:

*More features in Pilot Log-in area
*More general site pages
*Fresher, cleaner look with lots of curves, whites and light blues

-------------------

This Saturday will mark the entry for Air Lambert into the Worldwide market, and Sunday was the day that, exactly a year ago I dreamt up this VA in my head. A big thank-you to all of you who have showed support in one form or another, without that little bit of help none of this would be possible.

I would also like to give a special thanks to both Airliners.net and ifdg.net. Without these forums, many of you would not even know of our existance.
It's funny to look at some of my very early posts and see how things have changed. Something for you to have a chuckle at, the first Air Lambert site to exist.:

An excellent plan! The 757 (as Continental have proven) is ideal for lower capacity and niche long haul routes, allowing smaller destinations to get point to point flights making connections un-necessary. I've used this plan myself with my own VA.

Very sensible, but I'm surprised you're only planning on the one 757!

What seating config will your 757s have? I've chosen something similar to United's premier 757 layout, seating just over 100 with emphasis on First and Business seats.

Glad to see Air Lambert going from strength to strength.
A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

Good Luck in the future

I am amazed at the rate that Air Lambert has grown. It seems much shorter than a year ago that this fantastic airline was started. Looking forward to flying AL long haul.

Ive spent the last 24 hours doing numerous non-pax flights with these aircraft, im very impressed, the 747 is stunning in the AL livery, I just love the winglets on the 757 too, ill be sad to see the 747 to go at the end of the summer, lets hope we can keep it AL doing other things.
