Re: 10 Toughest Approaches in the US

Although no body flies there anymore. Telluride, CO (TEX) IS challenging even before they fixed the dip in the runway. America's Lukla.

Re: A350 short runway issue

I cannot believe SQ will only put 170 seats on the 900ULR for JFK-SIN. Surely that metal tube can do better? I was thinking 250ish.

I have guesstimated that a list price for a 5000nm, 240 (12J/228Y) pax A322 would be in the range of $185MMish. Not suré this would cannibalize/nibble at the 330s.
