Just wondering if anybody has updates on the details on SAA's future plans for the U.S.
What I know, with my questions:
-SAA plans on serving U.S. cities with A346 (nonstop each way from JHN)(and, which cities do they serve currenly besides NYC and ATL
-Will possibly join SkyTeam (have they yet?)
-If they join SkyTeam, they'll probably switch from serving JFK
(for the connections with Continental, Delta, and NWA.
-I understand they will keep just a few 744s for years to come to serve London? This will occur, even though they claim the A346 will be their Flagship. So they will still fly 744s for years after they shed the last 737NGs around 2010 (when the 737NGs leases end). . .interesting.
-Is SAA giving the A380 even a glance?
On a side note, SAA revealed they chose the A340 series due to its better high and dry performance. They claimed it was much better than the 777's performance. That's fine. . .but it makes me wonder. . .UA
's 777 service performance numbers in/out of DIA apparently sparkles when it comes to performance levels (according to UA
). And we're definately high and
