Re: Airbus A380 Fleet Tracking Thread 2020

In the air: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/g-xleg When was the last time the BA A380 flew a revenue flight? This won't be a revenue flight, rather a repatriation flight as South African borders are currently closed. There is also a BA 747 en route to CPT, under flight number BA59 for r...

Shareholders probably wouldn't be too happy with that.

Selling treasury stock = more dilution = less share value.

I actually see China and CAAC as the real "king makers" in the room. Their current silence is maybe just the calm before the storm? China has zero credibility on these matters. China has not seen a single hull loss since 2012. In a crowded, fast growing market. https://www.mro-network.com...
