NO - we looked at those planes when we got the six DC10s from Northwest and did not want them - we got NWAs best - we might be looking at other DC10s

What's the typical timeline for getting hired at Omni? Does anyone know when the next round of interviews will be? Thanks!

seeing what is the market to "wet lease" the aircraft - not sell- still stay with OMNI and operated by them for someone else - trying to get business other then just having to rely on the DOD business

Looks to me that they are simply looking for business-not giving up airplanes.

Unless the definition has changed, a wet lease is includes the crew. Isn't that the line of work Omni and others do? If so, good for them.

"wet lease" and ACMI are the same thing. They included the crew.
