The aircraft are on Damp Lease from European Aviation. They provide the ACMI element and some additional variables.

We have our own Cabin Crew. Global Spirit has hired 30 crew based out of Islamabad.

Our immediate term plans are to commence our Manchester - Islamabad service twice weekly and then move onto looking at Manchester - Lahore. For other parts of the world we plan flying to Bangkok, Sharjah, Los Angeles, Tehran, Jeddah, Dacca and routes which have VFR characteristics.

Our Fleet upgradation plans sees Global Spirit upgrading the current fleet of 2 B747-236B aircraft to maybe 3rd or 4th Generation 747's currently being evaluated by both our Technical and Commercial Departments.

We would invite any members of the forum to post there suggesstions and reccommendations which will be recieved favourably.

Thank you for your interest in Global Spirit.

I would suggest the 767-300ER. I am sure plenty available from the Chapte 11 US carriers.

Why operate a route with a 747 twice a week, when the you can offer your customers four weekly 767 flights?? Higher frequency would attract the business traveler who wants more flight options.

A 250 seater, would be great for competing againest the high frequency provided by Emirates.

What was the reason for naming the airline "Global Spirit"..what is the theme the company is trying to promote with this name?
