A few silly comments on here, it has to be said.... Bennett 123. ..correct. 10 year jail sentence would be a sobering thought. But too many liberal minded folks around to allow that.

Do TAP still do intra-European widebody flights? Pre-COVID they used to occasionally schedule A330s on routes with strong cargo demand (I remember VIE being a common one). Yes summer schedule 2019 both A340s and A330s were sent to LHR. Managed to pick up an old A330 LHR LIS shortly before she was r...Jump to post

Fuel burn isn't everything. I'd bet that "recycling" older aircraft by converting them to freighters is a damn sight more efficient than mining and transporting the materials (both horrible for the environment) needed to make a new freighter. The utilization on these isn't nearly as high ...Jump to post
296 A320 family flights (2 A318, 92 A319, 146 A320 and 56 A321)
50 B737 -3 (NZ), -4 (QF, EI), -5 (LH), -6 (SK), -7 (SK, KL), -8 (QF, SK, KL), -9 (KL)
Hence why you should always keep your seat belt on and done up at all times. You never know when the plane might encounter a little CAT.Jump to post

Yes only 1835 compared to the thousands of 737 or A320 variants.
It's got me curious now, I'll have to look through my trip photos to see if I can find one.
But reading about the guy in Hillsboro OR with the ex-Olympic 727 he's turned into a living quarter. Interesting idea.

VSMUT is right most of the current liveries might struggle to be memorable. I tend to disagree, certainly for younger people today's liveries can be quite memorable.
