Re: First 777-200ER built

Didn't Boeing call them B777-200IGWs back then? (Increased Gross Weight) How did this topic get moved? It is not about travel, it is a factual topic about civil aviation and no one is asking if anyone prefers the ER version of the 777 over the A model. Boeing did call the 777-200(ER) as 777-200IGW ...

Re: Korean Air makes bid for Asiana

Curious as to how this will get past the Korean anti-monopoly laws... This bid is made with the injection of about 1 trillion KRW from the Korean Development Bank, a part of the ROK Government. And there is a similar example which was made before in the automobile industry(the merger of Hyundai Mot...

Re: T’way Korea to acquire A330s

As in new A330's or used ones ? Maybe ex-SQ or CX frames ? Either way, good to see expansion. T'Way have probably seen what Jinair do with their 772's and want a slice of the action. It would be used A330s, A330ceo in other words. Acquiring A330neos would be harsh in terms of cost and many other co...

Re: Paris Airshow 2019, Expectations, Gossibs, Announcements

Re: CEO: Korean Air widebody order imminent

I sense an A350 order. Their fleet clearly lacks diversity! Cho said that their fleet has too many types now. He wants to streamline the fleet, but I think the A350 won`t be the choice because they haven`t used aircrafts with Rolls-Royce engines after the retirement of their Fokker 100s in 2004. Al...
