RE: What The Hell Is JAT Thinking!

RE: JAT Yugoslav Starting Again

I am glad that JAT is not forgotten among enthusiasts.

The first A319 will arrive in June 2001.
I believe JAT should buy some A330 but it is just too early to talk about it.

RE: What Happened To Jat?

Since the crisis began in ex-Yugoslavia, JAT has problems to find "jobs" for their planes. I believe it`s true that JAT uses only 737-300 and ATR-72 on its international routes due to noise regulation in EU countries. On the other hand, they use all they can on flights to Tivat during high season(fr...

I think it has something to do with fuel consumption. Those planes were not as good as factory was promising. That is why some airlines, like Singapore Airlines, decided not to buy them although they had placed firm orders for MD-11
