Re: A Question for American Members

Because it allows countries like YOURS to spend less on YOUR defense because your government knows they have the power of the United States behind them so you might think you have enough military to defend yourself and you probably do but as much as I hate we are the worlds policeman we kinda are. ...

Re: Bloomberg: JAL considers additional A350s and int'l expansion

Berlin is a major financial, cultural & political center of the EU. Cross out "financial" and you are spot on. Berlin is not even the financial center of Germany and that's the main reason why Lufthansa is focused on FRA and MUC. And that's why SQ for example is sending Scoot instead ...

Re: Rumor: LH might introduce a new/revised livery in 2018

If the crane really is there (and nothing else but pure blue on the tail), this is gonna be completely inbalanced! Will look awful IMHO! The crane appears stylized but the position of those lines matches the current one almost exactly. A quick overlay looks something like this (using the current cr...
