Re: Federal Prosecutors Expanding Boeing Investigation to CHS 787 Production Site

The headline were about the 787, but most of this ended up, and rightfully so, about the B737-MAX...But what about the USAF B767 tankers...The USAF inspectors have found a lot of FOD onboard, so many that they wouldnt accept any more aircrafts...Has this feature been fixed ?

Re: SAS looking for new long haul plane

SAS is on the way to become an all Airbus airline..
I am of the opinion that the aircraft would be the A321LR, not the A350ULR

Yes, Air France could go under, thanks to the employees of the company, who hasnt learned anything...Once again you will see unions with too much power....They more or less order their members to go on strike..

Re: Naming Specific Routes

SAS had 3 that comes into my mind
CPH-TAS-BKK-SIN: Trans Asia Express
CPH-SVO-NRT: Trans Siberia Express

OSL-CPH-FRA-MUC internally had a knick name: The Banana Express..

Also when started CPH-SEA-LAX...The WestCoast Express, since SAS was first European carrier flying to the westcoast

it is a question of starting the acceptance of standby passengers a little earlier and not on STD....how hard can it be ??

Re: EK Accused of Racism Putting B777 on India Routes

As a first he could look into how OLD aircrafts flying in India are....
My guess, a lot of them is way older than 13years..
Most airlines does not dedicate one specific aircraft to on specific route. Aircrafts are rotated as he will see if he checks out A6-EMW, as mentioned
earlier.
