What's in there is what's in there. I'll dig around tonight and see if I can find some old cargo flightplans. I found a few disks with lots of retro plans on them. I'll let you know what I find, cargo wise.
Thanks Jason. Btw, do you or anyone here have some NWA paints circa '03, both NC and OC with the KLM logos? I'm already aware of Mikey's 747s as well as your DC-10s and have those, but I'm missing other planes with the proper NW/KLM alliance logos, all of the ones I have either don't have any or just skyteam.
Another folder from my old MRAI backup. Its just called third party. I guess they were not official sanctioned by MRAI but they hosted them. It looks like I might have miss filed a few MRAI files in there, but left them just in case.
For many of these airlines, I have added variations and special liveries to the flightplans, changed airports to reflect 2003\2004 as needed, merged the plans when practical to better represent 2002\2003 without duplicate flights(as in Mesa DHC-8s replaced Air Wisconsin Do328s for United Express in DEN, I split them and kept both while plans only had one or the other), and in some cases, added charters such as with ATA.
Note that I will only be uploading files that I edited to this folder, airlines without special variations or additions are not included and have to be downloaded from Jason's links. These are the files as they appear on my computer, so if you see I plugged in a paint, it exists somewhere(though it may not be publicly released yet in a few cases), and if you see "//" next to an aircraft, that is a missing variations. A few don't have airport files, you'll have to just use the Ttools airports to compile or something, this is because I got them from the 2003 master OAG in those cases rather than from MRAI. Full credit goes to those at MRAI for making these in the first place.
I hope this saves you all some time! I will add them periodically as I dig my way through these flightplans over the next few months for installation. Check back for updates.
chasensfo: Yes the regionals will be included, and yes the whole 1999 fleet is done (they joined Star Alliance in 1999 and that fleet has the logo lol)

chasensfo: People usually reach out to me when they paint late 90s fleets and ask about flightplans

FSX Retro Flyer: The special livery of the 747-100 of Japan Asia has been painted by Michael Pearson some time ago. The repaint can be found on AVSIM here: faib_747-100_jaa.zip

FSX Retro Flyer: Satisfying to see Iberia package being released with all their repaints available! Also, can't wait for SAS and Aerolíneas Argentinas in a near future!

chasensfo: SAS yes but Aerolineas not sure, maybe some other Argentine carriers. Mostly European and US carriers for now unless others make surprises

chasensfo: China too of course

theflyingmobian: I think at this point the Qantas VH-OJC Formula 1 747 is the only remaining 747 yet to be painted in AI, but I don't think it has plans yet as that was active in 2000 to 2002.

jetstar: G-AWNA was painted up in incorrect BOAC colours when it was WFU, It was broken up in those colours in 1999. If you look closely, you can see the overpainted white where the BA titles were, and the tail is showing the speed stripe underneath the.. see part2

jetstar: Thin paint on the tail. They never did anything with the lower blue though. It was just homage to BOAC's original 747-136 when it was retired. Its a pity is was not preserved. Then again, BA would not pay to upkeep the 707 at Cosford, which was scrapped.

jetstar: Should have said Landor, Doh!
