Does Omega Air Tanker operate passenger flights?

Wed May 13, 2020 5:15 am

From looking at this photo I noticed that Omega Air Tanker´s KDC-10s have passenger seating does. My question is what are those seats for and does Omega Air operate passenger flights?

No, they don't.
Those are the old JAL seats (this ship is ex-JAL).
Probably left them in so as to not affect W&B.

Passenger flights as in scheduled? No.

Passenger flights as in chartered ops? Yes. For instance, if Omega Air is contracted by VFA-XX to take Super Hornets from Oceana to Fallon for Airwing work-ups, they can drag the fighters whilst simultaneously carrying squadron mx personnel and some of the equipment needed for the flyaway.

In a very specific manner of speaking, that was my general thesis.

This topic and OP reinforce the attitudes I have of the Airliners.net community and why I insist on propagating them, as explained in my choice of forum signature.
