Airline Industry Award (And Nominees Are:)

Wed Dec 15, 2004 9:07 am

Airline Industry Award (And nominees areļ)

Hallow ladies and gentleman. The year is almost over. And what a great year it was!!!!
Lunch of 7E7 and 350, competition of the 380, usual A vs. B wars over A.net, bankruptcy of USAir and ATA, Comeback of Air Canada, 340-600 underperformance rumors and 777-300 over performance data and we could go on.

Now instead of having another ultra long A vs B wars, I am proposing we start a fantasy award for the civil aviation industry. To get things stared, I am going to start the nomination my self:


1. Best Aircraft salesman of the year:

a)The Guy who sold Abu-Dhabi Startup Etihad four Airbus 380.
b)The guy who sold Jet Blue 100 Emb-190, thus changing single fleet rule for the LCC.



So feel free to add your own category or add nominees to existing category. Have fun

Aviasian-

I was under the impression that we were limiting ourselves to things from 2004. The new Aeroflot livery (as beautiful as it is) was introduced in 2003.

A.net members who see only the photos hate it. Those who see it in person love it. How many times have we read "it really does look better in person..."?
