I really hope that EU won’t ask for „exception“, like an appeal for clemency. That’s disgraceful. The EU should take immediate action without asking for anything.

He also contradicts IAG's CEO by saying LH won't take more A380s even though they are "available cheaply". I somehow think he referred to the second hand A380s.

Yes, the A338 will become a niche aircraft because airlines will only buy it if no other aircraft in the market will meet their requirements. So the A338 is for airlines that need the ultra long range or long range mid sized capacity. A niche aircraft? That sounds like a compliment. There isn’t a s...Jump to post

Don't forget though, Air Canada "adjusted" its "frosted leaf" paint scheme after a few were painted. The original blue/green was too dark and a revised lighter colour was used. It's subtle, but you'd have to see two side by side to see the difference. Sometimes, looking at drawi...Jump to post

In that transaction Boeing purchased already-delivered planes. And they did not require SQ to cancel their A340-500 order nor compel them to buy the 777-100 instead (which SQ had been looking at for ULR operations).

During one of the last air shows, CEO Fernandez made a tour through all the planes on static display while filming himself.

Did not MUC get some A380 and some A340-600 moved over to FRA? If all A350-900 go to MUC what will replace those A340 in FRA? A380-operations in MUC will start at the end of March 2018.
