As for a flight number, 13/14 or 19/20 seems likely as the lowest pair available.


Flight number 20 is taken for IST PEK. TK029/030 could work. TK needs to clean up its longhaul flight numbers. It is a mess.

Re: KL807 TPE-MNL wrong taxiway - could not exit runway (6/10/2018)

Must have been a huge mess at MNL. I guess they managed to have limited operation on the second runways during time. I am just wondering why it took 6 hours to move the plane from that position? There is no way that this could have been a 6-hour ordeal as the aircraft, PH-BVK, left Manila for Taipe...

Re: Next Lufthansa Group longhaul destinations

Even though LH has only relatively recently restarted SIN, I could envisage OS eventually returning there. For LX, I agree about ICN, but how about CPT and EZE? Edelweiss has been taking care of some destinations Swiss may eventually want to take over.
