Re: Maghreb & North African Aviation Thread - 2019

Tunisair is planning to revamp the J class with the forthcoming Neo scheduled to be delivered in 2020. It's been rumoured for late 19 then postponed for 20 or 21.. God knows, but they are choosing the seats and the IFE. Here is a link with the suggested interior. https://www.facebook.com/TUNISAIR.OF...

Re: Short stage length of LH A320NEO flights

Lufthansa NEOs have already operated to TUN, ALG and CMN. These are 2-3 hour flights. IMO they are being scheduled with the CEOs and not separately that's why you may find them on shorter runs over a longer period. No destination has a dedicated NEO so far.
