Re: Weaker demand entice Lufthansa Cargo to reduce services

I can't imagine that it will be picked up in the current market. FedEx is adding 767's & 777's and will probably not buy any 2nd hand MD11F's for flying operations anymore.
They could pick it up as spares frame, but that is scrapping for me.

Re: SWISS Announces Zurich To Washington D.C. and Osaka

Will these new flights fully tap out their long-haul fleet? It seems pretty impressive how they're able to manage such a large long-haul network with a relatively small fleet. It's curious why their South American network is so small. Long flights, high costs and relatively low yields. So better to...

LX also gave priority to the CS300 due to the ending of some 319 & 320 lease contracts.
The Avro's could soldier on more easily. Seatwise it made more sense for the network with the limited engines available.

Re: Could KLM have the 3 variants of Boeing 787?

When it’s time to replace the remaining A330s, it’s going to be probably another mix of 787-9s and -10s. The A321XLR would make a good A330-200 replacement on thinner routes. The 321XLR is not really a cargo hauler is it.....Very unlikely and beside lack of cargo potential an oddball in the fleet. ...
