This is all too interesting. The rights of the EVN-<acronym title="Frankfurt - Main (Rhein-Main AFB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA</acronym> route were handed to Armavia in April of this year.

My friend Chadi has found this on <acronym title="Air Zimbabwe">UM</acronym> Air's website. They will finally be able to fly the A320s they leased earlier from SALE. Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines becomes the first operator of A320 in Ukraine. The airline is based in Kyiv with some flights carried...Jump to post
We come back to the same place as we started, if a plane looks similar from the outside doesn't mean that it is a copy.
Does this mean that the Tornado is a copy of the MiG-23?
Or is the 7E7 a copy of currently exsisting types since it will have two wing mounted engines?
While going through Armenia's EVN airport schedule, I found that Ariana has operated a flight from <acronym title="Istanbul - Ataturk (Yesilkoy) (IST / LTBA), Turkey">IST</acronym> to Kabul via EVN with a 727 on August 5th, flight number 712.

I can't believe that the <acronym title="Istanbul Airlines (Turkey)">IL</acronym>-86 is considered as a copy of the A300. Are some people trying to stretch their immagination or what?

But some of the SQ A310s are only 7 or 8 years old! Do they have a good replacement for the type?Jump to post
Hi Osteogenesis, Will we get the final results of the poll, like which type was mentioned the most? It will be interesting if you could do that. I'll vote for the A310, it's the best looking Airbus ever but the least sold too. Can Airbus modernize the type further like Boeing has done to the 747 ove...Jump to post

There is a lot of traffic at BEY at the moment, because of the tourist season. I guess they are giving in to high demand.
As for Beijing, the pilots and crew probably need a good rest. It's common for airlines to do big layovers on their longer routes.
You can find a similar thread here:
I know about Aeroflot's 777s but as I said, they will be replaced by 767s very soon. This is not really about the A300, it's about larger airliners which also include the DC-10/MD-11, B747, and the larger Airbus series. Bromma: There are a number of A310s in E Europe and the CIS (Aeroflot, Kazakhsta...Jump to post
I was wondering why there are no A300 in all of East Europe. There was one operated by Kyrgyz Airlines about 2 years ago and now that is gone too. Is the A300 too big for airlines in East Europe and the CIS? Most airlines use the 767 and the A310 and only Aeroflot has the larger 777 and these will ...Jump to post
Let's just keep mentioning a name of an airliner so that this thread doesn't get deleted <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> So it will be interesting to know what 767 he is using and how often. I always thought that Harry will play for Chelsea this season, it will be perfe...Jump to post
In my opinion, the 767 will make the perfect private jet because it's both spacious and got a great range. I bet Abramovich can fly Moscow-LA non-stop in full comfort. He has told today that he wants to win trophies with Chelsea, I bet Ranieri is currently busy shortlisting players. Let's hope he do...Jump to post

I read that, do you really believe it?
He sounds so rude towards "villagers" of his own people. I also don't believe that flight attendants would behave that way, not that I give two shits about Syrian Air.
What do you think Airmale? I don't buy it myself.
I was in Skiathos in 1997 and stayed there for about a week. It's sure one of the best Greek islands I have visited. I took the ferry there from Volos (as far as I remember) and rented a studio right by the airport with an excellent view of the whole rwy. Most of the charter traffic was on 737s. Hop...Jump to post
At the moment, the A330 is the better product, so why not go for Airbus if it serves the business of the airline best. It's true though that the 7E7 sounds very promising and Boeing seems to be more determined than the currently shelved Sonic Cruiser. Regarding load factors, a lot of airlines suffer...Jump to post

I can't argue that once the economy recovers, MEA will get the chance to become a major player in the region. Things were a little different back in the early 90s when there was Israeli-Arab dialogue and everyone thought that there will be peace in the Middle East. So Lebaonon invested hugely in rec...Jump to post
Well EurostarVA, The difference between MEA and both Emirates and Qatar is that the Lebanese company doesn't have the strong state support that both have. These are airlines that can spend billions without making any profit and keep on flying and spending more. I'm not saying that there's anything w...Jump to post
MEA's Sao Paolo (<acronym title="Sao Paulo - Guarulhos International (GRU / SBGR), Brazil">GRU</acronym>) service was an extension to its West African destinations and it was operated between 1995 and 1998.

MEA already has an strong alliance with Air France and the french carrier is the main airline connecting South America with Lebanon.

Now that all A321s (but one) and A330s are delivered, I believe that MEA has the youngest fleet in the world.
