RE: Jetairfly Passengers Stuck In Cancún

The 787 is a bit particular with inoperative APU compared to conventional aircraft. The engines are started electrically not with pneumatic air.

RE: Oldest Livery Still In Use?

Don't know if anyone has seen this yet but it seems like Alitalia's livery is now changing....have a look at this forum and scroll down the page to see a newly painted MD80.
