I tried to reply to the last thread for African Aviation, but it would not let me. So I have started the next one. It seems that ET will be using Liège (LGG) as its cargo hub in Europe:

Big news that Virgin Nigeria will be losing the "Virgin" brand, as posted elsewhere.

How is KQ doing? The reported horrible financials from hedging is bad news, but have they started LBV or BZV or SSG?

That is quite strange. Could this be related to EK's increased cargo load in the belly of their 2nd daily flight to Lagos?

It seems demand for air cargo to Nigeria has been hit hard by the global financial crisis.

Has this aircraft been deployed yet? Where is it going?

Korean Air routing Cairo as Seoul-Tashkent-Cairo with A333 from 2 July, this will end the nonstop A332 service. Uzbekistan Airways used to fly Tashkent-Athens-Cairo with A310 or 757 in 2007.
