Re: Vietnam's first leisure airline - Vietravel Airlines - plans first flight in December

The A321LR, is that just because it is the only A321neo available or do they have plans to use its full range potential? Perhaps it only gets anything that it could get. The A321LR is technically useless with carriers base in Vietnam. - Australia: A321LR doesn't have enough range, A321XLR is needed...

Re: Emirates confirms future A380 deliveries

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...
