Well, many of their 77E and A330 were close to 20 years old, so these were up for replacement. So this 787 order (20x 787-10, of which 10 leased from ALC, and 10x 787-9) makes sense.

After the early DC-10 crashes, and particularly after AA191, airlines were loathe to advertise the fact they were flying DC-10s. The 'DC-10 LuxuryLiner' moniker was, for example, sc...

Re: 4 A350-900 more to IB from Aer Lingus

I’ll be flying MAD-EZE November this year, but the A350 service on this route will revert to A346 at the end of October.. Really? Where are the bunch of A350s from IB going in November? There will be 5 of them by then... That's what I was wondering about too. A350 service to ORD will apparently end...
