Re: Is it feasible for Aegean Airlines buy A321 ULR?

Aegean does what it does well. Very well.

Stepping into eastbound longhaul results in stepping onto the toes of the efficient ME4 and the yield dilution that causes.

Boris for PM is similar to Trump for President. He has the far right press on his side, paying him £750k a year already.
