The comfort issue is a way of saying ... It seems Boeing have cancelled the third/fourth engines since the game changing 707, but not the second aisle since the game changing 747. Why?

Different company. That's not really how Lufthansa works. Fact remains that fleets other than Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Condors have not respected the scheme (ABKF, AFKF; ABJA, ACJA; AILA, ACLA), while freighters older than ALCA (24.6.98; AICA! 17.2.98) were delivered to DLH proper to blend into th...Jump to post

Risk mitigation goes both ways. The LH group is heavily dependent on Airbus these days. Too heavily?
The paradox of the situation around the MAX is that it facilitates to convince investors not to put all eggs into the same nest even if that harms immediate profitability.
... show Fraport that FRA is not so important as they think they are for LH. Not so important as in: we're able to bind an A350's load of pax to LH of our decade-long 744-service when relocating to MUC, hah!

ANA *has* updated its livery, though, to remove all Japanese from its planes in favor of English only. ... Of which I think as a loss. Same with JAL.

Japanese culture tends to regard simplicity, understatement, efficiency, elegance etc. as marks of sophistication and taste.

As for Negus, there's a proven way to fit the full titles between doors & floors in a relaxed way. Yet, they squeezed it differently and it looks just like that: squeezed, rather than aesthetically more appealing, which would seem a valid goal to make a change.Jump to post
Rather easy to compare the "ys" in relation to L2 and R1 doors as a reference in -236Bs to IVB. I don't see the malposition of the lettering has anything to do with the altered window config on the 436's UD.

So far, Lufthansa has preferred to ID each aircraft by only the last two digits per AOC. Thus, DAIXA (A359) := no (more) DABXA.

Reading Blotto take Fox, and some very restricted, if any, re-regging (FO, FP, FR).
However, those two Tangos will be on their way out around the 13th incoming 779. Better some congestion for a limited amount of time, than skipping the system altogether. So I'd opt for T [riple] ango, then Victor [good for 52 consecutive frames], with Charlie for the 789, or going Golf or Hotel wit...Jump to post

What is the true definition of 'Eurowhite' then ? Suggestion: painting the hitherto polished aluminium areas of the (lower) fuselage white.

If you fly QR, see that their planes are always full, see the amazing operation in Doha, it's a success story. Even in November. You also don't see them constantly offering the cheapest fares.
