Re: Is DL taking delivery of A350’s from NRT to avoid tariffs?

Delta is currently taking delivery of an A350 N514DN the plane is flying now (DL9975) you’d expect this to go from TLS to ATL right? No, it’s going to NRT instead. This seems very unusual and uneconomical unless there’s a benefit for DL, is this a way to get around the tariffs or is there a genuine...

My recollection of HAN is that there is a large military base coexisting with the civil side, indeed there are hardstands all along the side of the runway with Russian-built fighters. Little sign of any hangers for any airline maintenance, all of which IMO is at SGN. No room for (much) expansion on ...
