If that is the white 757 parked on the IAT ramp, someone said on ground last week that they were a corporate aircraft with 30 something seats onboard. Don't know any more info.

A friend of mine is in class with EOS right now. They will be doing JFK-LHR. If things go well they are looking at 40 aircraft over the next 10 years.

Are you sure it is Heathrow? I thought they'd be serving Stansted.

Cheers!

You're right, it's not Heathrow.

Gotta love this quote:

Pilots. We're looking for captains who will be leaders on our flights, mentors to our crews, and hosts to our guests. We're looking for experience and professionalism, but also for pilots who, by their very presence, instill confidence in our operation.

Wonder what they are willing to pay for Captains, who "by their very presence, instill confidence in our operation".

You gotta pay extra for that, you know.

These guys are training right now at the Pan Am sim facility (co-located with Mesaba Airlines G.O.) in Minneapolis. Talked very briefly to some guys on the hotel shuttle bus.

Saw an ad for seats on these flights. They are recliner like seats, super turbo first class operation (according to the ad anyway) and a one-way fare was $4800 I recall. (read fourty eight hundred). I also recall reading they can break even at 50% load factor? Who knows......

Good luck to them. Sounds like another Legend Air operation. We all know how that worked out!

Actually, it was a VERY brief acknowledgement. Just enough to determine that they worked for EOS and they were training in the 75. Sorry I don't have more details...
