I was on TK1 yesterday, IST-JFK ...Few notes: -This alone 40ish Turkish woman in front of me in Y kept ordering French red wine and the FAs kept serving her.

This crazy (IMO) idea of ANA operating these planes specifically to HNL will be interesting to watch. I'm curious as to the schedules and how the plane will affect HNL and the other carriers. They do look pretty nice though. One plane can do HND - HNL - HND well within 24 hrs. So they could scedule...Jump to post

Did nobody notice, that the left picture (new livery) is overexposed compared with the right picture? Have a look at the dark holes of the windows.

There is/was very realistic alternative. BTS. Why it doesn't work the way it could, is a question for Viennese.

There's a flight OE320 (VIE - VIE) announced for tomorrow morning on the website of Vienna Airport.

A fair amount of dislike for the new livery comes IMHO from the way we look at aircraft. Ever so often we watch and photograph them beeing in the air - in front of a blue or white sky. The total absence of other colours supports the disappointing, uninteresting, boring, etc. impression. That beeing ...Jump to post
