Re: Air Berlin pilots now on sick leave strike

AB needs to close and launch again without legacy hangover of LTU and AB. Some crews don't even have aircraft at their "base". Can't do this or that due to Union rules. Fine if your making money but if not it's back to basics. And guess what if it did fail, the Pilots will get jobs - might...

Re: 757F vs 767F

Cargo operators prefer the 757 for a simple reason - cost. There are plenty of 767-200's around but they prefer 767-300's so they can cover long haul also. The market for 757's is pretty competitive its going to be a difficult aircraft to replace in 10 years time
