I vaguely remember a small no of 747SPs routing direct to/from the FI (on a contract for an oil exploration co). I am pretty sure that the BA 747s routed via ASI.

Air Tanker only have exclusivity if they can provide the facility. Can the Merlin tank at 260 KIAS ? (Hose limit on pod) or 180 (FRU limit).

The RJ manages AAR without Air Tanker .
