Re: End of an era - quad jets at Air France

- Rossiya, some Russian airline, recently acquired 7 or 8 ex-BA 744s. Minor quibble. Rossiya does fly 747s however they did not get them from BA. The 744s have been in their fleet since 2016 (?) The story of Rossiya picking up 747s from British Airways back in September was stated as untrue from Br...

Re: REPORT: American to drop routes to "two dozen" small/medium sized cities with no new aid

SWF being dropped wouldn't surprise me in the least. It's on the wrong side of the river for New York City; those in Rockland County can just as easily get to HPN or EWR (and LGA isn't a huge hassle). Putnam County is still easier to get to HPN or really any of the NYC airports. SWF will be lucky t...

Re: REPORT: American to drop routes to "two dozen" small/medium sized cities with no new aid

SWF prior to covid was up to 4 daily to PHL. With AA pulling more and more from JFK, I would think SWF offers a bit of a catchment at a cheaper cost and hope AA doesn't pull it.
