Hey Creazypilot, you got a formal notice from them for the employment? Congratulation!

Do you mind sharing with me what kind of the notice they sent you? I just got 3 attachments~~

From their website: "Please note: AAA previously operated as Asia Pacific Airlines Thailand." I think they either unwittingly gave the airline a name that was already taken.. or perhaps they got a bit mixed up between the Atlantic and the Pacific. As their proposed routes are all around the Pacific, it seems a bit of an odd choice of name.

Also from their website: "our goal is to become the world’s number one charter airline" - not aiming low then! Time will tell. What is it about Thailand and start-up charter outfits using 767s? They seem to come and go every year or two - SkyStar, JetAsia, Asia Pacific/Atlantic Airlines, Business Air.

A lot of these Thai airlines have a few things in common - a poorly thought out name, very amateurish websites with lots of spelling mistakes and deeply incompetent management: Crystal Thai Airways, City Airways with their slogan "Go Every City by City Airways", Happy Air, Kan Air, Orient Thai, P.C. Air "I believe it's my way", Sunny Airways "Sunny Airways always smile", U Airlines, R Airlines...

Would love a job out there but apart from needing to be type-rated, it seems to be quite a risk to take a job with most of these outfits.

It's not like they will have sterling competition. If they are marginally competent that will be better than anyone else. If they pay the correct amount on time they will be the only ones. If they operate with a degree of reliability it would be the only Thai charter to do so.

Anyone have any updates about this outfit? Recently saw them in BKK and NRT so they do still exist.

trouble at Asia Atlantic Airlines

I am currently in KAL.

I was recently hired at AAA three months ago.

We are under Audit

I seems there are some management problems, in training.

My sources tell me,their former colleague at RBA, and FTM, is acting strangely on training flights.

A Thai cadet alleged to me he is FUI.

No safety report, no check, because this dude, has total control of everything at the airline. Everyone one is afraid.

He needs to go... What about the Thai Pilots who refuse to work under this maniac. What about the Thai pilots that quit because of his abuse, in class, and the simulator?

What about the Purser's who's careers were in his hand because he had a say, in their promotion?

When Captain's allege he has a drug problem, I begin to wonder?

May be it's the parade past his hotel room that has him all messed up.

it is time to pull the pin.

It's a long rode to Shirley and Back. Its harder when sycophants rule the world.

When the boss disrespects Thai FO's we have a problem......... When the boss disparage the "Lazy Thai people", they have a problem

When a boss acts in an overbearing way, to hides true weakness, we have a problem.

When, the boss has control over EVERYTHING, in the company, we have a problem...

England is looking rosy

AAA

Guys:

I have worked for AAA for several years. At present only 1 767 is flying with only 1 city being served. In addition about a week ago or so they terminated about 120 employees contract. It does not look good for this airline.

Making accusations of drug addiction or drug use against anyone in a public forum like you just did against the FTM of AAA is a very very nasty thing to do.Do you have any evidence to support this statement against Mr KB? If not I suggest you retract this now, before you find yourself in court.Pete.

Oh put a sock in it Pirate Pete, "making accusations like you just did" ah ok Like He just did in september 2017 ah ok and were does it say accusation it states Others alleged it.
As for being taken to court, excuse me while I clear up my spilt coffee. As you like to always blow off with the last word I aint going to reply to your Hot Air so enjoy. No I never worked for AAA but Yes I do know the Company and had friends there (Local). No I dont know this Guy your complaining about but yes I know you.

Don’t worry, they’ll soon be back under another name. Same aircraft, different logo, same business model. Fresh start with previous history and debts written off. Start a few routes and sell tickets, string the creditors along while raking in the money and disappear before the wheels come off.

The unsuspecting zero sum vacationing public is safe again. What a horror show.

Can airframes be broken up at VTBS? I doubt they can fly them out.
