Re: Why did DL 122, BOS-EDI, just divert to PWM? (First DL 757 at PWM since 1996)

Assuming technical, these ageing 757s really starting to impact on reliability. Haven't there already been various delays and cancellations on these 757 routes this summer? Pax may choose alternatives in the future.

Re: Norwegian to cancel all TATL MAX routes
