RE: 2 More A310 For AR And CAT 1 For Argentina

Looking at the last posts, it makes me wonder about people's differing versions of Argentina. After all, some people see the 90's as a "Golden Era" without realising the fact that it was largely (not entirely!) an artificial bubble (I remember when, walking through a shopping mall, I saw a brand-new...

RE: Swiss A340 To JFK?

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but some A330s actually have more F or C seats than the A340s, whilst economy remains about the same... I believe the 330s seating was 196 in 3-class, 230 (or so) in 2-class, wheras the 340s is 220 (or something like that) 3-class. (I think the 3-class A330s had an ext...
