That route is not the most efficient route. This is the Rostov route.

Re: Memphis Aviation - 2019

It looks like next month American will be running 2 of 3 flights on MEM-DCA as mainline (A319 and A320). This is new correct? I think this has recently been primarily operated by regional carriers. I have to say, I didn’t see that coming on top of the recent switch to mainline on at least one of th...

Re: DL 128 diverts to SYA (Shemya, Alaska)

Seems like Delta's good for at least one of these a year on its Pacific 767 fleet. Can't imagine how much it costs them to fix and repo the airframes and people but it must be less than shelling out for new airframes. Hard to believe, especially with escalating fuel prices. Escalating fuel prices ?...

Re: Delta orders 10 A330-900 neo's, defers 10 A350-900's

I think the DL 777 fleet is less than 20 a/c, the 767's - all variants is more important from either OEM point of view, as of now, the replacement seems to have been chosen. You best believe the likes of Atlas, UPS, FedEx and other 767 cargo operators have been banging on DL's door to buy the 767s ...
