I for one would welcome more 321's in the fleet. I am doing DEN or IAH to ANC weekly and they are about to flex down out of the summer schedule. The aging 737-8's are tired and sad even when booking and F class seat. The FA's hate the galley's. I like the Boeing planes and I know the pilots do, but...Jump to post
No it isn’t, 694 -400s across all models (-400/F/ER/ERF/M/D) were built. You are correct—I made a math error so 276 out of 694 are still active Wikipedia makes it 376 in use in July 2018, 216 freighters leave 163 passenger frames. If we look at all frames flying or having flown passengers: 442 747-...Jump to post
It's the same as BA and others. Some very long flights with just the middle seat blocked. I guess if it made sense they would but if people pay for it then there is no reason to change. It also gives a lot more flexibility as the business configuration can change to match demand on the route which ...Jump to post

I’ve only ever have my bag damaged twice, and that was of course in the US. The airline involved didn’t give shit and told me to go pound sand.

BA will pay a hefty fine in India. They will get EU261 claim and in Indian courts.

Pay fine and move on. BTW, B...Jump to post

let's not get carried away. Perhaps you should take your own advice.

I really like the new AA livery, it’s a bold change from the stale, old one that belongs in the 1960s.
