I don't buy that WW is going under. I think they are doing the opposite, and what the almighty armchair CEO board of ANET always says is what carriers should do. They are reviewing their routes wisely and cutting those that aren't meeting expectations. They are adding some new endeavors , one of wh...Jump to post
But the main reason is the delay in delivery of their new ordered A330neo, first one now is scheduled to come by end of January 2019. So they need one of their existing A 333 to start their new India route, that’s the main cause in my guess why they close SFO route too during winter.Jump to post

IMO it is nothing more than a reaction of the expanding networks of WOW Air. Wow Air already introduced these two banks and as far as I heard they are successful with that. For being competitive FI had no other possibility to plan new banks. Also DUS was only served by WOW until now...so they try to...Jump to post
St. Petersburg in Russia is a City with nearly 5 Million inhabitants. So I wonder there is currently no direct flights to US or to Asian capitals, ME is only covered by Emirates.

Another aspect: which pilots are flying this bird?

Just saw flight TS 97 YUL-FRA nonstop operated by an 17 y/o A 320 - 212 (!!) C-GCKR. Is that only a defective Information of FR24 or do they really fly TATL with a "normal" A 320 yet?
In a German Aviation community was a report about the Royal Brunei Airbus 340-200 V8-001 - currently at the Lufthansa yard in Hamburg - doing its LAST flight today...
does it get retired? Or something else?
