Re: Emirates starts storing the A380

Re: 767 Fleet/Subfleet Activity (2018)

Does anyone know what is happening/ will happen to former Transaero Airlines (UN) B767-33A/ER EI-DFS, currently impounded at HKIA?

Re: AR EZE- PUJ 737 MAX 8 longest commercial flight

In the 60,70's & part of the 80'sseat pitch was 33-34" on most carriers in coach. So no they did not suffer or die due to narrow seats. Also the 17" wide seat was used on the BAC-111, DC-8, DC9, 707, 727, 737, 757, L1011, DC-10, 747. So everyone must have suffered horrors and still do...
