Re: 59 years of Lufthansa operations at SFO

LH only started flying nonstop to SFO in 1979. Where did they stop before?

Re: Air Italy Abandon Boeing for Airbus + More

Air Italy is all smokes and mirrors. No real plan or strategy. They are justifying their seasonal approach to route planning as a novice business strategy in the airline business. The India market sudden exit is a clear sign of having no clue of how to manage an airline.

MUC-MIA going from an A333/A346 to an A380 is a big capacity increase. Is the market really that big to handle an A380?...
