Re: LATAM Br 330 next year fleet placement expectation

I do wish JJ would go back to the A330s, I think the NEO would fit them nicely if their 763s weren't so new.

Do we have a schedule for the birds that are with QR to return?

It is politically popular in the USA to have harsh sanctions on Iran as some are still seeking revenge for the taking of and holding our diplomat-citizens and families as hostages in 1978-1980 and it is well founded that Iran was using aircraft to transport weapons to support groups that were at wa...
