Re: Boeing to close 777x and 787 order before month-end

I am hearing that EVA Airways is set to take on the three B777Fs that were originally destined for Volga Dnepr/AirBridge and now part of the dispute between Boeing and Volga. The court sided with Boeing, clearing the way for Boeing to resell the planes to EVA, which seems to be negotiating a package...

Re: What are KLM 737 replacement options?

You are taking that way too literally. Besides, the E-jets regularly replace the 737s when demand isn't there or fluctuates. To me it looks more like the E195E2s will replace the 737-700s, while more mainline narrowbodies (737MAX or A320) will eventually be added, meaning no mainline positions will...

They are doing this for the whole Group (AF, KLM and Transavia). The reason that the Group went ahead with the A220 for AF is due to a more ur...
