Re: LH retiring most (or all?) A340-600?

Hello. Here is a quick update for the A340-600 fleet as of 5/31/18: *D-AIHB is currently parked at MUC, this could be the first true frame this year to actually be WFU since it was originally gonna be retired in June (It's almost June now obviously). So that's one down, with 2 more to go in July. *T...

For the number of 737MAX in the US together, there are currently 24 operating. American just receive their 10th 737MAX 8 I believe, and Southwest has 14 MAX 8s in their fleet.

Re: Southwest may take 500 MAX 7

Wouldn't be surprised if they did do that, a handful of the 737-700 frames are in their 20s and some of them are about to hit 20 very soon. I know most aircraft can fly longer than that, but these frames are really showing their age.
