Both ships were aimed squarely at military business, although the A332 was rumoured to be not wanted by the military for international troop movements. Don't know why. Don't know if it's true. What was true, however, is that since it started operating, it really wasn't doing overseas military work, just a fair number of domestic military movements and commercial incentive-charter-type stuff, including one resulting in a great shot going into SXM. That all changed when the Afghanistan evacuations started, and suddenly 819CA was crossing the pond with some frequency. I don't know if that will cause it to pick up more CAMBER flights or not, but it's nice to see it getting more and more utilization. It's a nice-looking plane, inside and out. On the 757 side, I feel like for some reason National is holding it at one. It seems like that's their number, despite the thing flying an insane amount of segments, mostly domestic military, virtually every day. They had the opportunity to go to two ships several times over the past few years, and they just stuck with the one. Certainly I would love to see them get more business, as I would Omni.
