just wanted to let you know as a native Long Islander, the town is pronounced EYE-slip, not ISS-lip...don’t feel bad though, virtually every town on Long Island is some form of Native American language. it IS pretty damn funny to watch visitors/tourists who have never been here before try to pronounce town names like Ronkonkoma 😂

Baltia had their 747 parked at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, MI for years. It was only about a year ago the plane was flown out to who know where.

Filling a 747 on that route is not difficult but it would need to be a split of passengers and cargo.

We have no revenue, but we are going public.
The only thing flying is your money into a black hole... and our management fees.
I wonder how much they took in from government funding.

Having been born in Trenton an currently living in the same county, I'm hurt that the only time an airline other than frontier wanted to fly to Trenton only did it because of the T in their name.

Most ridiculous example of selling planes cheap when no one wants to buy them in an era where super jumbo jets like the a380 and 747 simply arent profitable is when a chinese seller who couldnt afford to upkeep the jet sold a 747 for 10 usd. not ten million, not ten thousand, just ten. ten bucks. one-zero. The company that the chinese airline sold to broke the plane down and sold the engines for 7 million each. ludicrous.

This is the least important comment ever: I live on Long Island near Islip, and it's pronounced Eye-slip, not Iz-lip. Again, this is not important. Nobody should care about Long Island

Meanwhile I start a legitimate business and can’t find a dollar and have to close it down. Give me money. I dont even need that much. Just a third of what a used 747 costs.

I don't know if this is still true or not. I remember years ago hearing about a shipping company that transferred packages from one airport to another for air shipping. But because of rules at the time they had to register as a airline like UPS and FedEx to be able to carry the cargo. Even though they never had any airplanes themselves.

I actually sent my Resume to this company several years ago to be an Aircraft Dispatcher in their Flight Operation Center which was going to be located in Ypsilanti, Mi (Willow Run Airport KYIP) (of course there was no response) The 747's they leased was painted and stored up at Kalitta Air's main maintenance base in Oscoda, MI (KOSC). They have since been broken up and sold for scrap metal.

"Half As Airworthy" is an airline I would fly on. As long as they meet FAA minimums, it would still be pretty safe, and the tongue in cheek factor is epic. 🤣

Reminds me of The Lord's Airline, a Christian/ Observant Jewish charter service that would have flown from Miami to Israel. By 1987 their only plane was an engineless hulk in a forgotten corner of MIA.
