Re: Air Berlin Livery

With a number of carriers changing their liveries in the last few years there's been a global shortage of painting slots, so an ex-Air Berlin aircraft isn't high on the priority if it is otherwise in fine working order. Planes going in for D checks have to have their paint stripped for a thorough h...

Yes, probably IAD-HND confirmation from UA. I think this would be the best bet. We already know they were awarded the route, so all that remains is the formality of actually announcing. The filing listed a 777-200ER, so it's just a shift from the NRT route. Agreed this is most likely, but I'll thro...

Re: Why didn’t Delta or United order the 747-8?

Pretty sure the 748 can carry more passengers than a 77W The exit limit difference is roughly 50 pax, so they're pretty close, all things considered. It's the extra two engines that don't make those 50 seats worth it, though. When I was watching Flight Sim videos of Fictional United and Delta 747-8...
