RE: Kyrgyz Airways?

The most information I could find (and it wasn't much) was on OAG. It lists Kyrgyz Airways in its airline list, and says that their IATA code is KH, but that they have no website. Google wasn't particularly helpful either.

Good Luck Finding out more!

RE: KL 658 - A330 Or 767

I spoke to KLM and found out that indeed we will be flying on a 767, and furthermore that the flight is completely booked - not a seat to be had. Why would KLM switch the aircraft to an aircraft with a smaller capacity if the flight was so booked? I presume that the 767 is now overbooked, so why the...

What <acronym title="Emirates (United Arab Emirates)">EK</acronym> has done is quite reasonable.

Now that Song is going to be merged back into mainline, will the seats with PTVs stay on the 757s, or better yet, be used to refit the economy cabins on DLs transatlantic 767 fleet? Any ideas?

Not that this has to do with the original topic, but I completely agree with Flyboy36y. Far more people are familiar with the IATA codes, as opposed to ICAO codes.
