Re: The Future of EK

EK will be fine, but in the future I expect they will have lower yields. High-yield traffic prefers direct flights. Connecting traffic in general will always be lower yield. EK, as a superconnector, will basically be put into a situation where they serve two markets... 1. the premium traffic from an...

Re: Turkish Airlines to purchase up to 25 A350s

I had thought the same thing, a few ULR's would allow them to start SYD and MEL Indeed. And that would make 777-8s unnecessary for TK. And honestly, I don't see TK as p...

Re: Aerolineas Argentinas mulls A340 replacement

787-9 seems the most obvious choice given how close it is to the A340-300's size. And its certainly closer to the A330-200's size than the A350-900 is. Alternatively the A330neo might be a possibility. Its cheaper at least in capital costs (higher running costs though), lower in switching/retraining...
