Re: Could the A350 do the 789's ULH?

First of all -DL has the 275t not the 268t. Seems DL's aircraft are still 268T aircraft. They're easily capable of being 275T (or actually, 277T) but the airline wasn't operating them at that at the beginning of this year, and I'm unable to find any external evidence that they've uprated them.

MAS problems go way beyond any A380s. It's a state owned airline that has a history of being managed as a political tool rather than a legitimate business. A proof of that is the purchase of the A380s. No, they didn't need such airliner for their poor profit/revenue, but how would you convince a gov...

QR downgrades Krabi from A330/B787 to A319 That is a huge downgrade! If it were to be downgraded then I would've guessed to an A321, maybe an A320. and from 4 weekly to 3 weekly flights according to the link, it going daily from 1 dec ?! https://www.qatarairways.com/en/press-releases/2017/Aug/qatar...
