The question might be typical for “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”: “How many baggage allowances of 20 kilos per passenger would it take to fill a Boeing 747-200F cargo plane?”

Believe it or not the Icelandic company’s Air Atlanta jumbo, with a 58-tonne capacity, is available for hire by anyone who can afford it from Oslo Gardermoen airport, according to E24.no

No-show?

The paper asked Sundt Air’s general manager – the Norwegian rental agents – Tor Bratli, who he thinks would be likely candidates for hiring it.

“We are in close contact with the fish production companies in Norway, as well as other Scandinavian exporters of industrial goods, where quick delivery to the markets is essential” he informs them.

Although Bratli says nobody has actually booked anything yet.

“Come fly with me”?

And just in case you were wondering, a return trip to Sri Lanka will set you back by approximately 300,000 Dollars, and the plane is available for hire for the next three months.
