Re: Delta MCO-GRU ending?

This makes it evident why that PMNW 787 order was so much more important than the A333, a direct replacement for the 767 is needed and is not 739 and certainly NOT the A321LREXPZPDQ....... it is a twin aisle 210-250pax airplane they DO NOT HAVE IN THE INVENTORY...... How about a quick Boeing order ...

Re: Delta MCO-GRU ending?

Makes more sense to connect everyone through ATL or with G3. Ironically enough I'm currently interviewing for a Portuguese FA position, but I assume that's more for LIS and JFK/GRU, ATL-GRU/GIG Good luck! Come to New York, it's the best base! We also have JFK-PDL. If I got to choose I def would!

Re: Qatar Airways operating A350-900 in LATAM's livery for more than 1 year

Right now LA only uses the A359 to JFK, CDG and BCN from what I can see. Seems like with the 77W sticking around longer they don't need the capacity they thought they needed. Wonder what they'll do with the A35K

Re: Kuwait Airways signs agreement to purchase 8 A330-800neo's

Eight aircraft delivered over a 7-year period? This is only slightly less ridiculous than Amedeo's order for twenty A380s. Let me be the first to speculate here that Kuwait Airways will never take delivery of all eight 338s in this order. After struggling to secure airline lessees since making the ...

Re: Kuwait Airways signs agreement to purchase 8 A330-800neo's

With so many relatively new A332s flying around I see no reason to see the A338 as a failure, despite not having more orders. For airlines that do not want the hassle of introducing a brand new type the A338 and A339 if they want the capacity increase is still very much in the cards going forward.
