Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

DL currently has 56 767-300ERs in the fleet, and only has 25 (now 35?) 339s on order. I'm guessing they're still hoping the 797 will be a viable option for them to replace the remainder of the 763s, along with many of the 752s and possibly the 753s. There are current 763/764 routes that could probab...

I think the business and leisure traffic to Italy should be more compare to Netherland. But I don't know why UA serves more flights to AMS rather than MXP and FCO


Why do you think that? I'd venture to guess that UA knows what they're doing in these markets, having the demand and revenue data...

Does anyone know how many destinations IAH has?


I believe somewhere between 170 and 180 nonstop.

Re: Aeromexico axes MEX-BOS/PDX/IAD + MTY-LAS + GDL-SJC

IAD-MEX surprises me (and to some extent BOS-MEX), but the others don't. Plenty of competition in SJC-GDL and LAS-MTY, and PDX-MEX seemed a bit out of left field to me when it was announced.
