Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2020

BA doesn’t have the A350-900, so it’s likely on the A350-1000 again. As for Norwegian, unfortunately it looks like they’ve completely removed LGW/CDG-AUS in 2021.

TWA 747 Operations

TWA operated a total of 37 Boeing 747s over the course of its existence, though not all at the same time. The fleet breakdown was as follows: 747-100 (27) 747-200 (7) 747-SP (3) The 747-200s rotated into the fleet and operated a variety of routes, but mainly those where the -131 struggled (LHR-LAX,...
