Re: Updated: US DOT awards Haneda slots

The power house days of NW in the Pacific are over. DL has been in a constant decline in Asia and all the while UA is taking over the Pacific. They are so far in drivers seat, serious doubt if they can be caught.

No excuses on DL part for allowing this to happen.

Re: Reuters : Airbus to counter the "NMA"by the existing 330neo and the A21N

Both the 321 and 330 are old technology that Airbus is trying to pass off as newest and greatist. Lets see how fast the sales trickle once the 797 is launched.

At the end of the day, you can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig.
