Re: Peak Season 2020 Cargo/Express Discussion Thread

I've seen ASLs A333s doing LEJ-KEF-CVG-LEJ occasionally for the last couple of weeks. I wonder if this is also part of the ramp up for peak or if it's going to be a regular thing now that they've got all the PW powered A333s back in Europe. It seems a bit inefficient with the KEF stop if it's not t...

What is exactly is there to miscalculate? You look at the speed tape, and call for the pilot monitoring to re...
