Who is looking for B742 crews in the UK?

On climb to 350 there is a listing for 747-200 crews. UK residents only. No details to be found about the operator on the listing. No clues in the email address either. Anyone know who it is?

Can only think of British Global off the top of my head but no idea if that's a good answer or not.

I found a listing for it on a website that has mainly American jobs. It mentions that it is a position outside the USA. That makes me think that maybe it is a US operator?

MIDEX is close to a new contract, UK to S. Africa, three times a week. Things change, so it may be Midex after all.

For 742 crews in UK - There is always the possibility that it is Air Atlanta Iceland.
After all, they operate from Gatwick and Manchester for their pax charters.
Further, majority of their pilots are from UK, their Flight Ops Management as well.
So, they tend to favorise the UK guys.
Besides that, they operate freighters in the Middle East and South Asia.
Then... could be Air Atlanta...?

Air Atlanta

Why would Air Atlanta look for crews with an anonymous Email address? Don't think so. Makes no sense what so ever. A large company would do their hiring through a contract agency confidentially with details released to shortlisted candidates.

Air Atlanta does not operate out of LGW or MAN anymore on PAX charters. There are no bases in either city nor any operations offices etc, your info is very old on that part.

Majority of flightcrews are certainly not from UK nor are the Flight Ops people. Hence no UK favours to be played.

My info is indeed old - I last was Air Atlanta for a few months 2005.
I had worked, again as 747 captain for them in 1993, then in Jeddah...
I lost contact since I left - Assumed it remained same, office in Crawley... etc.
Back then, the UK pilots were a large majority.

Of course it could be Midex. They're already circumventing regulations in the UAE (flight/duty, labour law and contracts, etc. etc. etc.)...why shouldn't they try to circumvent some more or do whatever they can to continue their shady operations?

And at least one post holder there has an aol.uk email address.
