Re: Air Koryo and FNJ Thread

What's the status of the Air Koryo fleet now? Are they still flying the classics like the IL-62 or have they switched to only the newer TU-204?

Is container loaded baggage or bulk loading of baggage faster?

Is container loaded baggage or bulk loading of baggage faster? How does this affect turnaround times? Example would be a EK A380/77W LD3 container loaded versus A32X/B73X bulk loaded. I think container loaded would be faster as they can be centralized in the baggage container depot versus at the gate.

Re: American Airlines Network Thread - 2021

Looks like the inaugural AA292 is avoiding Russian airspace. Is this due to cost issues because the UA/AI flight on the same route is flying through Russia and in total 1 hour shorter (14 hours versus 15 hours).
