TK talks big but never delivers. I mean SYD has been "planned" for a decade and always gets brought up around annual investor meetings. Now they want to order 'up to 600'? Not to get political, but this kind of 'big' news does come up when something is just around the corner...Jump to post

Emirates and Etihad have entered into a kind of 'interline agreement' in efforts to boost tourism to the UAE.

2 issues. It's almost impossible to get an A380 into HND due to regulations. 5th freedom isn't permitted at HND, meaning HND-SYD can't make money on its own.Jump to post
