Breaking News!

I have just recieved information from a Serbian information agency, INET. It was confirmed today at Golubovci Airport in Podgorica (TGD), that Adria Airways will resume direct lines LJU-TGD-LJU, after an eleven-year pause. The first flight will take place on May 30th. This is in conjuction with Yugo...

RE: Aeroflot "Could Have Been"

Out of the modern-day Russian civilian aircraft, I am amazed at the beauty of the TU204 and IL96-300. Does anyone know the price range of each (or any) of these aircraft?

What ever happened to the TU214, is it in production?

RE: JAT: Future Of B727 And DC9

Dcy, nice to see you in these discussions! Certainly you would be more knowledgeable about the BEG-LJU route, since I dont reside in Belgrade. With a code-share between JAT and Adria, there are four flights per week. My big question is: is there a strong demand for this route? What plane is Adria us...

RE: JAT: Future Of B727 And DC9

With regards to the DC9 at Ljubljana, its possible that it was from some charter company. Its too bad you didnt see the registration on the aircraft, however even that wouldnt mean too much, because lots of YU planes are leased out. Ej Alex, I gotta say that the YUAKI looks just like new.

It is inconceivable that LOT would be able to expand much more than it already did, especially because of Polands geographical position. LOTs target market should be most spe...

JAT Yugoslav Airlines already serves flights to Tel Aviv, however they make a stop-over in Cyprus (Lanarca). To be more precise, the fligh...

In that case, within one year, the airline is bound to fly daily. I have to admire what the CSA have accompli...
