"The European Union has recently issued a blacklist banning 92 airlines from operating in the region, saying they fail to meet international standards."(BBC)
I was surprised to see one Bangladeshi Airlines on that list, i.e Air Bangladesh. I have never heard or read about it before. Here are some pictures (a,b) of the sole aircraft of the carrier. The aged Boeing 747 has a lousy paint job, with no airline info in its body and it is currently 'stored' somewhere.

I was just wondering who is the owner of this airline and who gave the operating license? Biman may consider themselves lucky for not being listed taking into account its recent troubles.
