Re: What's going on at Samaritan's Purse? Another DC8?

My quick read of this is that they are buying the plane for spare parts and the engines. It is pretty well known that Delta is doing the same thing with the MD-90s, So you can imagine how hard it is to get parts for a DC-8 now.

Re: Can second hand A330-200s replace B767s?

Of course second-hand A330s can replace 767s. Factory new A330s have been the biggest existential threat to 767s since the mid-90s. Loads of airlines replaced 767s with A330s. Just to mention a few: SAS - Replaced with A330-300 and A340-300 Delta - Partially replacing them with A330-300, A330-900 a...

It seems that when a plane is early, or late, there is no gate. Only for those flights that come in on time - at least to my experience - that there is a gate. I am fully aware that gate space is at a premium and that planes need to get in and out on time for the next plane to come in.
