Re: BA 747 Retirement Date Set

Interesting to see the 744 age finishing soon (and also a bit sad though).

Let's hope BA does expand it's A380 fleet (not impossible, seing how LHR is in overcapacity, but still I would doubt it).

Re: Bombardier announces LoI for 31 (+30 Options) CSeries from an unnamed European Customer

BBD has stated that this deal comes from long before the Airbus deal. Aside, they seem to have 28 planes in their fleet, all second hand +10years old on purpose. 30+30 brand new birds would be a massive increase and an insane risk for them. No option at all for me. That's exactly what I was thinkin...

As of September 2017, the Volotea fleet consists of the following 28 aircraft: Airbus A319-100 9, Boeing 717-200 17, Boeing 737-500 2 (leased from Air X Charter).
