Re: IB announces the retirement of A346 fleet

Not entirely surprising, given the A330/A350 fleet efficiencies compared to the A346. Sorry to see them go. Flew in them twice on two different trips, MAD-JFK and JFK to MAD, both in Business Class. There is something unique about experiencing takeoff on the A340-600 in the front of the plane. Not ...

Re: British Airways VC-10 and BAC-1-11. Did they fly to Tenerife North?

Early 1970's BEA airtours flew comets that prob would have the legs for Tenerife - then they added 707's. . Don't think BA's BAC 1'11 500 had the legs, although i'm sure Laker did it with their 300's. British Airours added Tristars and 747 during the 1980's. The 747 was mainly for long haul but may...

British Airways VC-10 and BAC-1-11. Did they fly to Tenerife North?

Hi, I'm making a recollection of all the aircraft that came to Tenerife (my native land), in the 70's and I was curious about the British Airways and British Airtours aircraft here.

Re: Boeing CEO: NMA will "start with a clean sheet of paper again"

I think the NMA has an even better case going forward. If airlines find it harder to fill a 789 and the 788, 321LR/XLR aren't as cost efficient, a 200-seater TATL/TPAC hauler starts looking fantastic. Can replace lots of 767s, 330s and even some 77As on routes with capacity downgrades. Now, whether...
