Re: Etihad Airways To Retire A340 Fleet Late October

For every A359 Lufthansa gets, that's one A340 booted from the fleet. I think we have one getting delivered this month, and I believe 2 next month. I noticed Lufthansa seems to be holding on their A343s for some reason.

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2018

I don't see what's wrong with keeping a few 767-300ERs in the fleet until the 787-9 are delivered (Dispite the small numbers), quite a few of them are around 13 years of age. So they are still useful. How early can AA get more 789 delivery slots? Can they use some of the 24x 75Ls to fill in for 763...

Re: Rumor: LH might introduce a new/revised livery in 2018

Whenever I think of a new revised livery for Lufthansa, It needs to have the exact same concept as the original livery they had for a while, but it has more of a KLM look to it. The curves on the side of the fuselage, maybe a metallic finish to the paint, and a belly logo.

I don't think they will be retiring them that early unless it is a change of plans. They haven't released their 2018 FI just yet, so no one even knows how many 763ERs, or even the older A320s they are supposed to be removing from service this year.

Seems like there was a recent 763ER retirement we forgot about. N388AA was retired on 12/30/17 and flew from MIA to some airport in Alabama. It was 23 years of age, most likely to be converted like all the other 763ER. 23 remain.
