Thank you!! That's what I thought, a really impressive African network, with intra-African segments. I'm sure they had traffic rights on most of them, given France's excellent influence in its former colonies. What really surprises me, though, is Dakar-New York.... was this prior to RK (Air Afrique...Jump to post
How long do you all think the 747 will be around? secondly, are we talking passenger only? I see no cargo airlines in this trend. Cargolux operates a few 747's as does Emirates Sky Cargo, Etihad Crystal Cargo, Lufthansa Cargo, China Airlines Cargo, etc,, third, when did Asiana stop flying the 747 t...Jump to post
All right. That's the first time I've heard of seperate seats for regular and premium economy, usually they're in the same seats. In the picture below you can see both types of LH seats, economy and premium economy. They are very different in dimensions and comfort. https://www.travelbook.de/data/u...Jump to post

Iberia seems to be playing cheap with their high density A350-900, hopefully they'll still get A350-1000s or even (dare I say) A380s. I don't see how SAA is going to acquire anything anytime soon. Armchair CEO me says there's a good chance KE and AF get some. KE because they'll replace their 77Ws a...Jump to post

Bonus question: which airport had this kind of stairs? If the documentary is editied chronologically, it must be a North American airport like Montreal, Toronto or New York. Where did the first Swissair B747s fly to? As far as i know in 1972 Swissair flew the 747 only to JFK. Either non-stop from Z...Jump to post
why does LH not retrieve some 340-600's from retirement? These could be helping out free-ing up 744s for the Berlin Airlift 2.0 ;) Can imagine that the 340-600 would not be capable of serving TXL due to the sheer length of the frame. LH has already been serving TXL with A340-600 from MUC in october...Jump to post

Remember that they've had 747F and (SF) previously along their 747PAX. In the end they went for smaller aircraft. Yes, i remember very well. I flew them a lot of times as my late father was FE on the 747. I also remember that LHs 742 crews were pissed when the first MD-11 came in. They knew it was ...Jump to post
Although nothing is definitely sure, I tend to think it wouldn't be wise to have such small fleet of this large aircraft while they could simply add frequencies on routes requiring it, using current fleet or by adding same size aircraft to it. That's just my :twocents: You're probably right. I just...Jump to post
I wonder if LH Cargo one day might have use for 2 or 3 747-8F in addition to their 777.Jump to post
There’s a highly recommendable book about Lufthansa and its design history from the 60’s until today. It shows the development of the Lufthansa brand design from boarding pass design to aircraft livery and its changes over the years. After reading this it becomes pretty clear how much thought is put...Jump to post
Question: I've also noticed that German planes don't seem to have the registration printed under or over the wings (or at least one wing). Many other European aircraft from other countries seem to adopt that, except Germany. Why? But the, i've seen a pic of a SunExpress Deutschland B737-800 Sportin...Jump to post
I purchased a ticket on one of AB's cancelled long-haul flights originating in the US.

So 9K-ADE had no seat configuration at all in the rear ? I wonder why they never converted it to a standard 747 if they never used it to transport cargo and utilize its combi abilities ?

As far as i know the Kuwait Airways Combi wasn't used as such. It was the Emir's aircraft with a hospital section in the middle and the upper deck was always off limits for the public as it was the Emir's private area. As the State of Kuwait now has a 747-8 i don't know how the aircraft is used.Jump to post

There's an interesting book published by BER's Architect Meinhard von Gerkan who was fired when politicians were looking for a culprit. It describes pretty well the desaster and some of the reasons why BER is what it is right now. Unfortunately the book is only available in german.Jump to post
Perhaps Boeing could not legally transfer them to another customer until the Transaero bankruptcy court formally nullified the orders, and as I recall, that was not until 2017 - over a year after Boeing suggested them to Iran Air.

According to my understanding IR decided against the 748i and A380 because they were both too big for them. At least that's what I read in an interview with IR's CEO a while ago.

I don't know their routes or fleet size but there is a really nice documentary about their 727 ops: "Boeing 727-200F ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIE"
Despite not being Argentine i would say La Nacion is a reliable source. The main reason for considering selling the Embraer is that they are too small for Australs (Aerolineas Argentinas) needs. Anyway until now no decision has been made so they might stay with Austral for a while.Jump to post
