Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2019

Some thoughts for 2019 I'm not so sure about Norwegian, given their shaky financial footing. I agree that LH will likely go daily at some point. Who knows, they might even upgauge from the 330...wishful thinking, perhaps, but dreaming is fun. ViaAir: a friend of mine who grew up near BTR had a few ...

My first London City Airport Landing - British Airways E-170 :D

Thank you for that info. I can't believe LH would go for a less-dense configuration in a 777X (which is perfect for 8-abreast since it will be less tight than the 777-300 version United use). So the only way that pic makes sense to me is if its in an A330 or 787 or A350. That said, apparently Optima...
