Re: Etihad submits an offer for full Alitalia takeover

That is the most rational response in recognizing AZ is a basket case. Either it is majorly restructured, or let it fold. If wound down slowly, there would be no disruption to other parts of the Italian economy. Lightsaber I don't disagree with you. I find Etihad's further adventures to be bizarre....

Re: Malaysia Airlines revises A350 operations, alters European plans once again

9+ hour meaty route? Almost impossible to achieve from the get go! They have to give up either.

Meaty? PEK, MEL, SYD, NRT .. But all around 4k nm and better upgraded with frequencies rather than equipment if needed
9+ hour? CDG, AMS .. requires patience at first
