LOL Tristar500 i wasnt trying to discredit you mate - i dont doubt that LH
's A300 fleet is running massive cycles per airframe numbers - the route portfolio they fly means it cant be any other way - i merely meant to infer that the A300 is a fantastic ac for the type of operation LH
have. Im sure the A300s are getting tired beyond their years, and if you say some of the airframes are maxed out, well i can imagine that may well be the case.
I didnt really disagree with anything you said, just that IMHO the A300 is the best type of aircraft in existance for the specific ops that LH
are running, domestically, RPSK, and to European hubs like LHR
. I'd be interested to see how their numbers for fuel burn, MX
costs, turnaround time, reliability etc compares against the A332 (hypothetically) on the same route network and schedules - i bet the A332 is not as far ahead as people may think.
The A300 is a fantastic aircraft for what LH
use it for - thats all im saying. No offence meant mate.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???
