Re: Coronavirus Aviation Related News & Discussion Thread - April 2020

Interesting to see DELTA 8958 from KWI to AMS.
Is it a cargo-only plane as it came from ATL on 28/03 and flew to Dubai (DWC) on 29/03 and onwards to Kuwait (KWI) on 31/03.
It's planned to fly Amsterdam > Minneapolis > El Paso > Detroit

As to KLM and Boeing, it did indeed start with the 747, then with the 737 and then, the 767 (to replace the A310s) and now, apart from the A330s, KLM is an all-Boeing carrier.


Don't forget the Embraer 175 (17) and 190's (32) which are used for the shorthaul network
