Re: AF / KLM announce 1st Quarter 2018 Results

This is nothing new..These issues at Air France are ongoing for years and years.KLM is making money and Air France is throwing it out.

It's credited with opening up secondary US cities to international traffic, opening up secondary Chinese cities; it did SIN - SFO first, and still has the LAX route to itself, now this P...

QF 9 on route again...VH-ZNC..the first flight was a real happening..Now it.s just an ordinary flight.Picking up pace.Was thinking maybe this is a new route for KLM here in Holland..Amsterdam-Perth..It.s a while ago that KLM was flying to AUS.

Re: The 787-10s role in Singapore Airlines

They are betting heavily on the efficiency of the 787-10 ..Word goes that SQ wants to grow at least 20% in the Asian Pacific region..I guess that.s why they placed a big order for the dash 10..It will be a challenge to fill all those seats..First destination is Osaka.

Re: Rumor: Qantas to convert remaining A380 order to A350-900ULR

Let.s see what happens..both Boeing and Airbus are still working on the Qantas case.They will order a plane that will fit best..Both planes are cutting edge technology but the 777-8 is bigger than the A350 ULR. Next month Qantas starts with Perth-London with the 787-9..The performance of the 787 on ...

Re: Boeing may consider restarting 767 pax model production

Boeing thinks about producing the 767-300ER again because they can sell 50 or 60 to probably UA..For a good price and with low fuel prices a good deal..In basic the 767-300ER is a very good plane..There is no time for a new wing and new engines..And to expensive if they only talk about 50 or 60 fram...
