Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2017

MGA could use a longer-haul flight, most likely to MAD, as well as a nonstop to New York. Both Air Europa or Wamos come to mind. Wamos will initiate GUA-HAV-MAD 1x weekly with 330 in June. UX MAD-SAP 1x weekly with 332 started on April 26. I also envisage room for flights into the MGA-MAD market. R...

Re: Central American Aviation Thread - 2017

Personally, I think MGA could use a longer-haul flight, most likely to MAD, as well as a nonstop to New York. I think Nicaraguans would enjoy those options along with their current ones.

Could DL make another expansion at CVG?

In February, Delta made its first expansion of flights at CVG in over a decade. However, from what I see, I think DL could make a few more routes (on both mainline and regional) work out of CVG. The arrival of the CS100 could also help them expand. My apologies if this Here are some of my ideas: Sho...

Re: New aircraft delivered with old branding

If I remember correctly, there may have been a few DL planes delivered in 2007 that had the "colors in motion" livery.
And this was after the intro of the new livery.

Well AC is retiring their A320 family aircraft already.
Are we about to see them retire the A330's now? Very interesting nonetheless

Re: Will Delta or United order Airbus A320neo family aircraft?

DL is the most likely candidate. I can see them retiring some of their A320s sooner rather than later, so we'll see how that shakes out.
It is also a possibility that they order the 737MAX to replace their A320's, similar to what AC is doing.

If the rumors about JAL being the ones to sell the 763ERs are true, it would definitely make sense because they are presently replacing them with 787s.

Re: Retirements schedule

The last DC-9 in commercial service will be retired sometime around 2100... Along with that, AC is starting to retire their A319/A320/A321 once their 737MAX aircraft enter service (Some going to Air Canada Rogue). Don't know the exact retirement date though. SK 736's are slated to be gone by 2019. L...

Personally, I'd love to see the 737MAX in the EK livery. I feel like it would look much better in that livery compared to the A320NEO.
