Re: A330 and A340 Movements/Write-off/Retirements/Scrap Thread - 2020

Rumour has it that the world's first A330 has been retired today. Cathay Dragon B-HLJ (ex-VR-HLJ, F-WWKA) has left HKG as KA2486. Is there a plan to put the aircraft in a museum? There are only 2 "preserved" A330, one as a café and one as an (underwater) diving attraction. That's not true...

Re: A350-1000 fuel burn

Cool, pretty interesting Numbers! But the 777-300ER still seats around 30 passengers more with 10 abreast in a similar configuration, which makes it a little bit better for the 777 at least. comparing the Qatar Airlines Qsuite 77W with the Qsuite A351 the difference seems to be more like 15 seats. ...

Re: 777 - 25 years in commercial service

It might not have the universal love or appeal of the 747, but I really like the 777. I've found it to be fairly pleasant to fly on (though my last trip on a 10ab 777 was when I was not fully grown!) and I love the way it sounds, the Trents and the GE90s on the 77W and 77L sound very authoritative....

I'm not surprised to be honest, but it is disappointing. Planning new terminals/capacity is a multi-year process, so when the air traffic rebounds, LAX will be bursting at the seams again, with plans of new capacity shifted into the future.

DL has A350s rolling in thick and fast. They are more than a match for 77E. 77L is a special case, one DL won't worry about for at l...
