Re: SIA to review fleet plan; future of A380 in limbo

I highly doubt SQ would completely get rid of the A380. Unlike the other A380 carries, not talking about EK, SQ can afford to charge a premium on the Singapore to London and Zurich routes as these are financial hubs. Also, they invested too much money in the cabin retrofits to get rid of it, especia...

Private Aviation after COVID

Interesting read about how private aviation companies like NetJets and FlexJet will come out stronger after COVID. There will be more wealthy people choosing to fly private over commercial due to fear of being in a confined space with strangers. https://www-forbes-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.forb...
