Re: DL new summer 2018 transatlantic flights

Really interesting adds. No lie, I had to look up PDL. The ! is warranted, but DL does have a recent history of being in the vanguard when it comes to niche trans-Atlantic flying. As did I. I'm fairly certain PA served PDL at some point during its existence, so it's certainly been a long time since ...

Re: Aegean evaluating A320neo and 737 MAX

I agree with those saying it's likely to be a NEO order. 737 is certainly not out of the question; after all, A3 started out flying the 737. However, those were Classics, not NGs, so I'm not sure they'd be willing to go to the expense of the bringing their pilots up to speed on the MAX.
