I was in Lagos recently parked between 2 World MD11's, 1 ex Gemini (343WA), both doing ex-Gemini routes. Don't know if there were ex-Gemini pilots flying them.

May have been as WOA hired 75+/- guys from Gemini. A few did not stay for various reasons but I think the count is still close to the 75 I think. I have met a few and most seem like good guys. I hope it works out for the others.

Since World hired a bunch of Gemini refugees, yes, there's a moderate chance that former Gemini pilots were flying on one or both planes. However, as unfortunate as Gemini's demise was, there is no distinction between ex-Gemini birds, ex- Gemini routes, ex-Gemini pilots and monthly bidding for trips/schedules. It goes strictly by seniority.

dunno
I've been curious where most of you guys ended up. I'm glad to hear a bunch of you guys did find work. As much as I hated working the African routes, I do have some pretty fond memories of working my butt off in the old DC-10 down there.
It just makes me sick to think about what happened over there.

I am trying to jumpseat to SCL (santiago, chile) in Feb. Any Centurion guys have the Feb. schedule? The website only has a Nov. schedule. Do you take CASS approved jumpseaters international?

Thanks

Look to see if a WOA 747 is still doing that route in Feb. We are still going down there this month. It departs from MIA....duh.

"centurion won't be hiring for a long time. "

so says the chief pilot, and I believe her.

CWC does take int'l CASS jumpseaters, and would hope to have the favor returned by the jumpseaters' carrier..
