Re: First WAMOS 744 commercial flight for LATAM

LATAM only request to Wamos Air painting their logos gray for avoiding confusion with Sky Airline aircraft.

Couldn't those come back from the desert if needed or were they scrapped?


No, those aircraft can't return to service. 3 of them (CC-CQA , C and F) were scrapped in SFB. And CC-CQE is stored in Marana, and it's stripped for parts.

Re: LATAM fleet mismanagement

The worst LA mismanagement was early retirement to desert for 4 owned A340 fleet. 5th arrived used and it was a leased aircraft. Never trust important routes only with a new technology model and engine. Examples are BA, JL and NH having another equal models to make substitutions (77E and 763W also i...

Re: DL's final 744 in its final resting place today

Delta never really had " a real love" for the 747 - Only 5 "real Delta " 747-100 aircraft were operated between 1970-1977 - All other 747's (2x 747-200B, 8x -200F and 19x 747-400) were obtained by the merger with NWA in October 2008. A little correction... NW had 16 747-400 , no...

Re: Why were A318s unpopular?

Former LAN Airlines had 15 A318s in their fleet. PW didn't met performance and fuel consumption for A318, so LAN was the only customer to had PW-powered "babybus". Another reason was the business model change. A318 arrived directly for 737-200Adv. replacement. When LA implemented LASER hyb...

So, except for SPECIAL liveries, the entire fleet is in new colors?......except of course the MD-80s Was @ MIA for 2 days last week, didn't see any old livery. There is a 757 still floating around in the old livery along with some Eagle planes in both LAA and LUS colors. No 757 in service wore LAA ...

Re: BA 747 3 engine ferry PHX-LHR

No GE 744 have V-Pods because the engine fan are too big to be fitted in a pod for ferry. I don't know if any PW 744 operator ordered V-Pod feature.

RR : 86in , PW 94in , GE 106in.

Re: Replacing 747's with 777/350/330/787

These differences from a few random airlines aren't huge: - British Airways 777-300s in 4-cabin configuration have 299 seats. The 4-cabin 747-400s have 335. There's no BA 77W in 3-class cabin configuration, so "4-cabin configuration" is redundant. BA 77W have 297 seats , and Mid J 744 hav...

No, MEX is a hot and high airport. 789 have a bit longer range than 788, but transpacific operations beyond NRT won't be unrestricted. AM used MTY stopover in the past when 767 were us...

AC has the oldest 763ER in service, a former ex-CP aircraft : C-FCAB. AA retired all of their 763s built in 1980s, last year.
