Re: Delta Pays $62m to Cancel A350 Purchase from LATAM

Couldn't Latam-Delta find a better solution that cancellation? Could they simply transfer the order to other carriers (who needs the A350) or to the lessors? I think this is a legal way to essentially give LATAM more money to help save them. Delta pays $62M in cash and LATAM can sell / lease the pl...

Re: DL to permanently retire entire 777 fleet

I still think JFK-BOM could come back (but also might not). Main reason I think it could come back because fuel will be cheap for a while (And fuel costs really affect such a long flight). Traffic between India and US is higher than people think. Main issue is that US airlines captured too small a s...
