Most likely EK will retire 8 of the older A380-861's with GP7200 engines and replace them with the newer A380-842's powered with the newer RR Trent 972's. There are 14 A380-861's that are 10 years old, or older to choose from for retirements, which can allow EK to avoid some expensive HVM. Also, th...Jump to post

If it’s to be a common type with the E-4 and Tacamo replacement etc, a (very largely) reworked 767 might be of interest.

I don't know what they would do with their doubled-in-size A380 fleet after the merger.

Hi everyone, Seems like everyone has already known that the Air Force One will be repaired by a pair of modern B748 in the next few years.

The interior definitely is reminiscent of ICN T2 with the use of wood and very rectangular arrangements.

Does anyone have the list of MAX whitetails?
Let me guess, 99% of them are MAX 8, dozens are MAX 9, but zero MAX 200 (because there are only 2 customers Ryanair and Vietjet) and zero MAX 7 (too few customers also).
This license also opens up opportunities for cooperation in the form of a partnership between Bamboo Airways and its partners in the US to exploit direct Vietnam-US routes in the coming time.
