RE: Why Retire The 727?

Quoting SATL382G (Reply 35): I think UPS disagrees.... Those are mostly 100s from what I could tell. They still have a great deal of -200s. Also, their 757PF purchase was to partially replace 722s Actually UPS does not operate any of their own 722s. They still do operate some 721s domestically and i...

The A300 is an ok a/c, they are reliable. Sometimes they can be finicky.

RE: Boeing Slams A380 Forecasts

Airbus and Boeing are just being ridiculous about the way they handle these things. Yes, Boeing did bet the farm on the 747 but this situation with the A380 maybe a bit different. I work for FedEx and I would like to come across one of ours when they enter service but as far as being a pax A/C I don...
