Re: QR to launch 777X Freighter next week

Hopefully priced well, as nowhere else for QR to shop. There are alternatives. QR's 777F and 748F fleet is young, if Boeing's 777XF pricing is not good for QR then it makes it more economic to continue operating the current fleet and use their existing 77W fleet as feedstock for growth until the ne...

From your description it sounds like a Dry Wax used to clean aircraft surfaces. When there is a degree of humidity out, and it is not completely wiped out, these spots happen.
