Freight DogsFinally a forum for those midnight prowler types who utilise the unglamorous parts of airports that many of us never get to see. Freight Dogs is for pilots and crew who operate mostly without SLF.
Hi superspotter just little bit of clarification. you said you saw onw of their b4s in Nairobi, NBO. Cause their schedule doesnt say anything about going into Nairobi. Should be grateful for further info and/or pics. thnx
According to a mate of mine who worked for Midex it doesn't look to rosy. Their infrastructure is a bit of a mess, to say the least. Last month they were looking for an A300 TRI/TRE for two days, yes two days to run the sim for recurrent training. So far nobody took the "bait". I hope it will work out for them boys over there right now.
Gents - Am afraid commercially their whole business model doesnt stack up, Indian subcontinent feed to large plane to Europe, Worlds 5th largest integrator etc...sorry price of fuel and other Middle East carriers operating regional freighters to all the same places and guess what adequate lift nowadays direct ex sub continent. My guess is Midex is Empost 2 and they havent flown in a while now have they.? and even when they did it was ACT charters via IST. A300 B4 is not a plane you can make money with am afraid. Even the big boys EK / QR / EY with their A300-600 and A310s dont have enought work and their costs per kilo are beyond market tolerance..But would like to be proved wrong as the business is losing its entrepreneurs daily...
