Others, like CI, PR or SQ already have the A359 in their fleet and are happy to abuse it on shorter routes.
With only six A359
s in its fleet, I don't think PR
is "happy" to abuse those on shorter runs...and highly doubt they'd exercise their options for six more just so they could do more of the same. PR
has plenty of youngish A333s to use, and only deploys the A359
on said routes to increase utilization.
You're still thinking that PR or anyone else is going to order the A338? It's frankly probably time to stop hoping that major carriers are going to buy A338s at this point.
is not in the pink of financial health right now. And where did I say "major carriers"?
It's sold extremely poorly for a reason. If PR or other airlines wanted to buy the A338, they would have done so by now. Only three carriers worldwide have even ordered the plane, and the ones other than Kuwait have all ordered in tiny numbers.
And what reason could that be? Perhaps it's only lately that the virtues of the A338
are becoming more relevant.
And I'm going to be very frank here: it's probably time to stop being an A338 fanboy, there's no point in bringing it up in every A330neo thread and even in threads that don't even talk about the A330neo in general.
What can I say...I'm incorrigible, and that derogatory term reflects more on you than me. You don't get to tell me what to post on these boards!
