Re: The 777 retirement and scrapping thread

Re: Why doesn't Norwegian fly to Canada?

I wonder too why Norwegian doesn't go to South Africa. Cape Town is very poorly served by BA (old 744's and deteriorating service coupled with a monopoly position as SAA has withdrawn) and no SAA.. Ally this to an increasing Nordic interest and I would have thought there might be interest?

BA Fleet Changes

Advice please. BA has /will have received 4 380s, 4 787s and 3 77Ws In the second half 2013.
Where will this extra capacity go? And will 767s and 744s be retired?

RE: 3-3-74...Paris Crash In The Forest

I do remember it well. It was the day after the France England rugby international: with the BA flight cancellation, many Englishmen were transferred to the flight at very short notice, who would never have been on the flight

Really interesting. I went thru Suvarnabhumi a couple of times recently and had a generally <acronym title="CSA Czech Airlines">OK</acronym> experience, although there is still a lot of work to do.
