I know they are based at lck, but have they actually had any runs inside the US in the past few years?

A couple of airplanes in MIA doing FedEx runs to Mexico and Central America.

Now the question becomes, who is going to take over the runs, and are they going to be hiring.

Enough
I would say that they should turn that ramp and hangar space over to Airnet so they could put it to good use, but I wouldn't be suprised if those new owners and new CEO kill off Airnet within a year. hate to see it happen, but it wouldn't suprise me one bit.

I will echo the previous sentiment of "it's about time!" To those who will lose a job out of this (pilots/mechanics) consider this to be some good karma coming your way, because it's likely that your life has just been saved.

Flew with a guy that used to fly there. He nearly punched me in the face when i wondered what i thought it would be like to work there. Mentioned good times flying around vietnam or something in the ol convair with the buttocks clenched with fear.

I'm thinking IFL is already all over that...there's an IFL Convair doing a Miami to Guatamala City right now...never done that before.

Sooner or later they will be MAC’s runs. They just need a couple of more ATR’s.

It is not going to happen R------, Fedex wants A/C where they can load palettes. Too costly to fix the ATR for that. This is why the F27 in BQN is not replace by an ATR.

Sorry :0 , I was wishing the same as you.

ATR's can't do those runs (Panama, Guatemala) the route is too far over the water on a direct flight, MAC should be doing it by now if that was not an issue. Second is the pallette issue, you can't beefed up those ATR floor boards without $$$, it's cheaper for Fedex to get others to do it that has the equipment already, rather than getting another STC for strengthened floor boards. Don't get me wrong, I'll bid on any of those run in a heartbeat...!! :cool:

So I heard that they are LIQUIDATING to IFL? Can anyone confirm this? It's about time they went outta business. IT'S A GOOD DAY

I'll try to go over there this week and will let you all know.

I hope the victims (read line pilots) can find something soon and that scum of the cesspool operators like Air Tahoma continue to vanish...

Woohoo! I never like to see someone loose their job, but that company needed to go. Hopefully they are gone for good. Although as Cargopod said, they will probably be back.
