Re: How do I get a ride on Eva Air’s Badtz Maru A330?

I appreciate all the responses. I didn’t even think of FR24. And the price for TPE-FUK isn’t bad at all. I may start building a trip soon to go to TPE for a few days, then to FUK and who knows where after that.

It’s been a minute since I posted here, but I was wondering how I could catch a flight on the Badtz Maru A330-300. I don’t really fly much anymore, you’ll catch me on Amtrak before catching me on a flight. All I wanna do is take an out and back. Not looking to stay anywhere. I tried going to their w...

What brand/type oil does DL use on their MD fleet?
