Is it because they are anticipating smaller demand similar to Hawaiian Airlines with their A330-200?
Since I am from Russia, I was really talking about Aeroflot and Rossiya. While SU effectively owns FV, and sells tickets for their flights, it’s still a separate airline with a separate identifiable fleet and livery. So maybe the different livery can be a criterion?Jump to post

That’s the flight - absolutely. Thanks, guys! And how do you find that incoming flight on FR 24? Is this something I need the premium license for? FR 24 sometimes lists the registration of an aircraft which will be doing your flight (D-AEWS in your case). You can just enter it in search form. If it...Jump to post
797s. But before that 321s seem destined to take over most transcon with Delta, American, Jetblue, Spirit, HA, AS. Definitely on the small site. But it's availability, low CASM and flexibility compensate a lot. Alaska has already announced it is shifting to 739s on transcons. If Delta doesn't confi...Jump to post

Ok the 732 and DC-9 are rare in 2018. Maybe in 2006 they weren't but now there are extremely few left. If you fly on one of those nowadays you're part of an elite.

I thought it would be great if any passenger could use an onboard oven (for some charge of course) to warm up her own food. This would reduce onboard catering problems as everyone would be able to eat almost any warm dish she prefers. However I see two problems. The first one is that there are simpl...Jump to post

If I understand correctly, American is the only US airline to have the national flag as a part of its livery. While it's surely not enough to consider AA the "flag carrier", is it still considered a privilege? Was it contested by other airlines like Delta and United?Jump to post

Airbus confirmed to ATW the Russian flag carrier has 14 A350-800s on order. You mean the Aeroflot has 14 A350-900 on order? How are things with Aeroflot, they seem to cancel orders: 787, now A350.
