How do you figure? There are people that want to go from Paris to Kenshasa and Paris to Brazzaville, but perhaps not enough to fill up each separately. This way they get two markets with just one aircraft. It would be a much larger waste of fuel to fly an A332 from Paris to each separately, half-full.

Re: Yahoo ranks "Top Ten Domestic U.S. Airports" for 2019

There are some real head scratchers on this list. AUS is better than all of these but maybe PDX and MSP.

Re: MAX in service at MIA? Is it possible?

The MAX winglets actually look very different to the scimitar winglets on the NG. The only thing that is the same is that one part goes up and the other down. The angles, sizes and shapes of those parts are very different. “Other than the fact they look basically the same, they look very different.”
