Gee, those exclusive air rights to USSR ought to have cash value. Couldn't have they sold these to, you know, an ACTUAL airline? If USSR wouldn't acknowledge the right to sell, they could have had an established airline do it as a "code share" of sorts.

just wanted to let you know as a native Long Islander, the town is pronounced EYE-slip, not ISS-lip...don’t feel bad though, virtually every town on Long Island is some form of Native American language. it IS pretty damn funny to watch visitors/tourists who have never been here before try to pronounce town names like Ronkonkoma 😂

Filling a 747 on that route is not difficult but it would need to be a split of passengers and cargo.

Most ridiculous example of selling planes cheap when no one wants to buy them in an era where super jumbo jets like the a380 and 747 simply arent profitable is when a chinese seller who couldnt afford to upkeep the jet sold a 747 for 10 usd. not ten million, not ten thousand, just ten. ten bucks. one-zero. The company that the chinese airline sold to broke the plane down and sold the engines for 7 million each. ludicrous.

This is the least important comment ever: I live on Long Island near Islip, and it's pronounced Eye-slip, not Iz-lip. Again, this is not important. Nobody should care about Long Island

Meanwhile I start a legitimate business and can’t find a dollar and have to close it down. Give me money. I dont even need that much. Just a third of what a used 747 costs.

I don't know if this is still true or not. I remember years ago hearing about a shipping company that transferred packages from one airport to another for air shipping. But because of rules at the time they had to register as a airline like UPS and FedEx to be able to carry the cargo. Even though they never had any airplanes themselves.

I actually sent my Resume to this company several years ago to be an Aircraft Dispatcher in their Flight Operation Center which was going to be located in Ypsilanti, Mi (Willow Run Airport KYIP) (of course there was no response) The 747's they leased was painted and stored up at Kalitta Air's main maintenance base in Oscoda, MI (KOSC). They have since been broken up and sold for scrap metal.
