Thanks for the post. I wasn’t aware that Corsair was one of the few airlines that operated all 747 models except the -8. Interesting. Yes, it's a little airline but in 27 years they managed to operate 23 different 747s with five different versions. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Corsair Saw ...Jump to post
Flight EY8203 is on its way on the mentionned route. What could be the reason at this time of the pandemic?
AC has revised its summer flight operations.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... f-10jun20/
First day's cities are CDG, TLS, LGW and FLL.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... july-2020/
Edit: on some of the French routes liste, TS will be alone this summer without any competition from AC.
From YUL and YYZ, flights to 13 European destinations will be proposed, along with five Sun destinations and an unknown number of domestic routes.

Why was Pan AM so desperate to have a domestic network within the US, was not their international network not enough for them? I remember they were ( just in my opinion ) along with British Airways the largest international carriers in the world at the time just about any airport in the world you w...Jump to post

During the next few weeks, TN will operate three PPT-YVR-CDG and return flights.
First one departs tomorrow.

I remember seeing one or more 747's painted with the billboard titles but retained the cheat line. I think this was an interim livery transitioning from the old to the billboard. I believe it was a test livery. As you can see the cheatline wasn't the same as on the old livery. Here the same aircraf...Jump to post
I don´t know the real reason for the premature withdraw of the DC10s but I also recall it was at least in part linked to the bad reputation the model gained after the series of accidents in the late 70s. Other airlines reacted more pragmatically and cool headed and decided that the tragedies weren´...Jump to post
At the same time that they were getting rid of the DC10s and 727s they were introducing used A300Bs from Easter Airlines, not even of the same subtype they got new from Airbus and I recall the ex EA machines being hangar queens and having different configurations even among them. The used A300s arr...Jump to post
My guess is that Airbus delivered them all white and Pan Am painted them at their facilities. Perhaps cheaper? There is also a photo on here of an ex Eastern A300 which PA acquired and painted in the same scheme. It looks like they used a 727 template and globe perhaps? The A300 also arrived in 199...Jump to post
I noticed something about Pan Am's A310s. The last two delivered frames - N823PA and N824PA - delivered in June and July 1990 two years after the last A310 deliveries in 1988 have a slightly different livery than the other A310s. The Pan Am font is not as thick and slightly smaller, also the letter...Jump to post
Was the DC10 too much plane for AZ, not enough or was the 747-200 fleet, which was fairly large for an airline of AZ's size the reason for the DC10's somewhat short service at AZ? Not too much plane but rather no longer the right one. At the moment I can't remember in which older thread I posted in...Jump to post

The AC 767’s are pretty old, so I doubt that most planes will continue flying. The AC Mainline ones are a bit on the old side, but older frames have been acquired and converted. The Rouge frames are very suitable for conversion. Demand for conversion is fueled by Amazon's ever growing need for plan...Jump to post

WA707atMSP - That's very intersting. Thanks for sharing. Brown is an important part of the today‘s Swiss livery. Uniforms and relevant parts of the cabin appear in a dark brown color. I find it classy, especially compared to LH‘s boring grey. Yes, but I was talking about the outside livery. Brown ca...Jump to post

Cheatlines were a commonplace on many airline's liveries in the 1980s, aesthetics change throughout time! True, but why drop the red that's part of the national colors for some out of line black and brown.
