I’ll be watching this, wonder who will it be?

The one out of ATL maybe a DL VIP 319? It’s been across the pond before.

This appears to be the 1:30 flight:

Here’s a 3:30 flight, but it’s operated by Atlas Air. I thought they were a cargo company, do they do charters as well?

Atlas has had Passenger 747’s since 2010. They currently have four of them.

They also have 3 passenger 767-300’s.
