RE: FAA Says No To JAT For U.S And Canada Flights.

Unfortunate news from the United States, but nonetheless, it was not unanticipated. Leasing one long-haul aircraft for the purpose of one or two weekly flights is certainly not feasible. I am afraid that it is rather late for Jat to find a codeshare partner now. Any takers? The FAA rejection to resu...
