Oh come on people... Isn't Nigeria supposed to be on the forward section of its one step forward/two steps back march into the future? What's wrong with them flying a nice aircraft until it's repossessed?
Any news on whether or not the country will disintegrate into ethnic violence?

Nigeria (the country) could have been a world power by now. At independence, it had the same PCI as South Korea. Even with $B of petroleum, it remains a backward barbaric crime-ridden hell hole. The airline of course has faired no better.
I agree of course with all of the above commentary. Nothing cynical about predicting the future operations of NA based on experience. I agree.....possibly some late model 742s or 743, maybe a couple of A340's.....reinauguration of LHR/CDG/FRA/JFK etc with much fanfare....then extremely poor on-time performance, losses, repossession etc.
Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
