Can't help you with your request of a route map, but we operate once a week for QF from SYD to SGN.

Good luck!

I wasn't aware that you could jumpseat on 121 or cargo internationally. Are there some Cargo carriers that allow this?

Northwest used to take International jumpseaters (Had to be CASS and there had to be an available seat in the back). I wonder if Delta does now?

Hi!

Every carrier I know of (with maybe the exception of FedEx?) will carry jumpseaters on intntl flights, if the jumpseater's organization is allowed to go intnl. Canada was NOT intntl for NWA.

Take out ILN and insert CVG, and erase HNL and SYD. We could get you all the way to HKG after that I know some guys have bought cheap tickets to get to the Phillipines so I don't see why 'Nam would be any different.

Polar Air Cargo (http://www.polaraircargo.com/networkmap.html)

Go to the home page, click on the "contact us" tab and look for the OAL Jumpseat tab. Plug in the information and it will let you see where you want to go and you can fill in the information before committing to the jumpseat.

Most of the ACMI's will let a pilot JS internationally.

UPS won't either.

Well, it isn't that UPS "won't" but under current TSA rules we "can't." prior to 9/11 I used to take numerous off line pilots to to our international destinations.

Until the TSA changes the rules.... I'd suggest everyone contact their jumpseat coordinator for further info.

Well, if we're going to get hung up on verbiage. But if I remember correctly, it's more a matter of UPS/FedEx management choosing to NOT comply with a specific directive. Where the ACMI's do choose to comply.

So UPS/FedEx "won't" because of that.

I was considering using Atlas to get home from Europe this August and was wondering where I could get schedule information. Im guessing you guys go frequently from London? Anywhere else you guys go from often? I'm guessing there isn't really a route map... I would just be trying to get back to continental US from Western Europe.

Thanks for any info,

Used to see them in ELLX all of the time, when we were doing a Cargolux contract.

Kalitta goes from AMS to the states every once in awhile. If you can get to Leipzig Germany, we go from there to CVG 5 or 6 times a week I think.

The only regular westbound flights from Europe go from Luxembourg to Huntsville, Alabama (most transatlantic is either military or LCF on which jumpseating is not allowed, unfortunately).

Atlas goes to Stansted regularly but only eastbound from the states; the flight then goes to LUX before going back west. There are also regular AMS and FRA flights but those are almost always turns out of DXB or AUH, nothing transatlantic.

In August the LUX-HSV run is scheduled every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, in the afternoons.

We fly daily from Luxembourg to Huntsville, AL starting in the early afternoon.

Occasionally we also go Leipzig to JFK on both the classic and the Gucci jet.

I did a trip to SGN last year. The most direct routing I could make work was company to HKG then bought a ticket on UAL (though you can try jumpseating UAL but for $200 I'd bypass the hassle) there. I looked at using Polar from CVG to HKG in case I got bumped from my seats. Only SNAFU was UAL cxld my flight and sent me through SIN. Added an extra 10 hours of travel. Not fun.

You can also get a cheap ticket out of BKK or SIN
