Re: Cabo Verde Airlines new livery

I think that the livery doesn't do justice to the whole rebrand work. The website (https://caboverdeairlines.com/) shows a real new brand identity that i find really refreshing and suitable for an island like Cape Verde. But this livery is just meh, the tail looks like it have been cannibalized fro...

Re: Delta looking into accelerating MD-90 retirement

What interests me is how quietly DL went from 65 MD-90 to 40. The engine MRO costs on the V2500D5 are certainly driving the decision. I wasn't even aware they were winding down the fleet, such a shame to see these beautiful arrows go. I'm genuinely surprised, only a few years ago Delta's MD90 costs...

Ports in SE Asia etc are far better placed to carry African/Mid-East bound traffic from PER, whi...

Re: Delta 333s (Latest Batch)

Wow, a whole frame is set aside as a spare?? I'm curious how often it gets used, though clearly it must be financial advantageous for Delta to keep this bird on standby or they wouldn't be doing it!
