JU Back On BEG-JFK? Observations From BEG

Fri Feb 18, 2005 4:39 am

I was walking by one of the few JatAirways offices here in Belgrade and noticed that they are offering tickets to New York, in Business Class for 750Euros one-way, starting in September (unaware of whether 2004 or 2005, but it's 2005 I presume). Is JU code-sharing with someone, or were they finally able to lease a 763 to run to JFK?
Also, they have these stunning DC-10 models. They have a real mock-up of a cabin, and they're huge. I mean, probably 3 or 4 feet long.

No. JAT is not flying to NYC.

BEG is (was ?) an enroute stop on the way to NYC for a flight originated Kazakhstan, or Uzbekistan, or Turkmenistan... I don't remember  Sad an airline from but somewhere in this region...

UN_B732,

What you saw is a "via" fare in partnership with one of the other European carriers.

With regards to the model, I know which one you're talking about, its old but great... and shortly will be the only "DC-10" left in JAT colours  Sad

FlySSC,

JAT code-shared on Uzbekistan Airways twice weekly services from Tashkent to New York JFK (via BEG). Flights were operated by 763s.

(Un)fortunately the Serbian passengers were not happy with Uzbekistan's service and complained happily after almost every flight, even though they were full.

Eventually JAT dropped the agreement and now re-routes its passengers via CDG and AF or via FRA and LH as well as via LHR and VS.

There was plenty of talk of resumption of direct JU services from BEG but following the previous Management's sacking today and the fact that the U.S. Government no longer supports JU's return to the States, I think we are unlikely to see any non-stop service in the foreseeable future, that is unless a U.S. carrier commences flight to BEG.

Is that the huge cutaway 1/25 DC-10 with seated passengers inside? I first saw that model in 1978 and last saw it in March 2004.

That would be the 1/25 probably. It didn't have pax, but had seats. It could light up if plugged in.
By the way, what's going on with JU these days? Last I knew their MX went on strike, supposedly there's a privatisation and a bunch of financial difficulties?
Uzbekistan (rolls eyes). I saw that flight flying from JFK-BEG-TAS at Terminal 4 at JFK. They just fly wherever there is no airline flying trans-atlantically and there's demand.
KBP - Through an agreement with 6U
BEG - Through an agreement with JU
I think they run through RIX or Tallinn now in cooperation with AirBaltic.

Quoting UN_B732 (reply 4):

The flights now go via RIX.

Unfortunately the United States government is uncooperative with regards to the resumption of JAT flights between the two countries. The reasoning is based on politics rather than technical reasons. Nonetheless even if the U.S. were to revisit their policy, JAT is unlikely to resume such flights because of current instability in the company. Serious changes in management, company restructuring, and rationalization (layoffs) are on the agenda for 2005.
