Re: AirFrance/KLM buys a significant stake in Virgin Atlantic

AF-KL Group having DL and MU as minority shareholders does not (or should not) change its status as an entity controlled by European Union investors. In this sen...

Re: AA may swap 359 for 338, HA could go 787 or 359 (Leeham)

Given the size of the backlog, converting a few A350s to A330s would be a good move to balance the production lines. But replacing 767s by A330-800s would be a first; even DL ordered A330-900s for that job. Delta has way more 767-300ERs than they do orders for A339s. IMHO some route can't manage th...

Well, Delta didn't do any favors to SLC's TPAC and TATL aspirations when it cancelled the 787-8 order. A332s have been range limited for TPAC ops. With the elevation and occasional hot days, some scheduled TATL non-stops have had tech stops, too, although I don't recall if those were A33x or 767s.
