Re: N772SW Heading to VCV

Perhaps due to ongoing litigation from passengers, they figured it might be good to park the plane (temporarily?) in case it becomes an issue in court.

Re: Why were the 757 and 767 such dead-end designs?

Boeing is in the business of making money by selling planes, the 757 wasn’t selling that’s why it was shut down.

It’s about business, not some Anetter’s desire about liking a certain plane design.

But hey you all know better than the people running Boeing.

Also if they don’t use an ETOPS plane if it’s possible they have to hug coastlines, so the route is longer requiring the use of more fuel, which increases costs.
