They really need to get to the bottom of the 777-9 hold up. Once those start deliveries I’m sure it ...

Interesting observation from Nairobi.

A7-BHB (B787-9) was here today. I believe these just came in to revenue service?

And there’s an A350-1000 on the way here for the evening service.

Looks like we have been quite lucky receiving their nicest aircraft of late!
