It could also be related to the huge order backlog at Airbus.

According to Air Berlin´s homepage they expect the ordered airplanes as replacement for actual leased ones plus expansion.

Strange that Air Berlin orders additional airplanes while they are lacking sufficient flightcrews to fly the actual ones in their fleet...

@ Trex8 The difference in fuel consumption between B777-300ER and A346 based on the same payload and city-pair is 7 percent if you are interested in the real number. On ETOPS-Critical Sectors which result in longer routings for the B777 this figure changes to 4-5 percent. I hope that helps a bit. Jo...

Fragmentation means existing hub-routes with big airplanes will be replaced by non-hub flights with smaller airplanes.

In german "Fragment" is the same as "Part of".

I totally agree with you guys that we will have MORE hub-to-hub-flights than today PLUS new non-hub-routes.
