Re: KML/Air France Eyeing Delta focus cities

DL already does CVG/RDU-CDG, so not sure why that is being suggested. I’m sure AUS and BNA will be getting a DL/AF/KL TATL flight in the not too distant future, but SJC is right down the road from SFO so I doubt they’ll be seeing one. SJC being next to SFO didn’t stop LH from launching flights to t...

Re: California Pacific’s assets being sold off?

On a similar note, does anyone know where both N259JQ and N286SK are ending up? Looks like 286 was sitting in SUX since CP shut down, and last week, ferried down to Queretaro to TechOps. Airfleets says it is going to JetSuiteX, but I don't really believe that.
