. Tom Grant dug this up for us -

To Operate B747SP ? A new British company is looking to operate an
executive-configured B747-SP from a base in Dubai. According to
reports, the airline has entered into negotiations with UNITED and
other B747-SP  operators for the purchase or lease of a single
aircraft. The aircraft will be upgraded to Royal Flight standards
with amenities to include conference room, lounges, bars, a cinema
and a library. Chess Intl will offer the B747-SP for charter flights
or leasing arrangements from November 1997.
The operation is aimed at business in the US and Japan. Lease rates
for the aircraft will be in the region of US$ 15,000 to US$ 20,000
per hour.
Senior officials from Dubai, which the airline sees as the ideal
location for it's operation, have reportedly been approached with
the concept and their interest and enthusiasm was said to be
encouraging.
Cheers, Tom
