Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - March 2021

I did a big a deletion run last night in this thread. Why? Cause majority of the discussion was based on the lockdowns and Australian/New Zealand government and had NOTHING to do with aviation.

Re: Kenya Airways to end JV ops with AF/KLM

Is it just me or does this sound more likely one airline didn't want the JV anymore and covid19 is simply being used as an excuse to cancel it?
