Re: New Icelandair livery coming

I doubt it'll be a major change (even though I'd love a new livery). Maybe though they'll get rid of the blue belly and instead extend the tail colours all the way down and around the back of the plane, and maybe something else. It would be pretty nice.

Re: PAL announces A321neo routes, up to 8 hours to Australia

All the people who are complaining about the 8-hour narrowbody flights are clearly clueless in regards to how aviation works. It depends on the airline, not the aircraft.

LH has the 779 on order (but that's arguably in a different class, so maybe), CI's 77W's are brand new, and I can't see SAA buying any plane right now. I'd say IB is the most likely because of the A340-600 fleet they have no replacement planned for.

The A350 would be the ideal plane for expansion. They put those on the busiest routes thus allowing the 789 to fly to even more ...

So 20-40 787's and 20-25 A350's? We're talking anywhere in between 40 and 65 completely new widebodies. That's quite the expansion.

Also, I'm not a person who complains about Business Class (since I'm a coach guy) but the new planes would be the perfect opportunity for a new Business Class for TK.
