Re: Wells Fargo sues AA for not returning leased planes on time

Sounds to me that WF needs to make up that lost revenue they are not getting by 'creating' fake accounts for current checking account customers or charging extra fee's to those who borrowed for car loans. There are very serious problems at WF and the Fed's are all over them. This 'spat' with AA wil...

Re: Why were the 757 and 767 such dead-end designs?

I wouldn't call the 767 a dead-end design because Boeing is still building it, although no new variants came out lately. Boeing is still selling the 767-300ER as carg...
