We have someone who post the thread. Let me posts those pictures here.



Right now, FlyDubai is looking at 737-9/10MAX or A320/A321neo.

Let the speculation begin.

Soft product will still be quite inconsistent, but that is a fantastic J seat for FZ. Makes me much happier to consider them if needs be.

After a few days of EK, and FZ being loyal to Boeing with significant air frame orders at the DAS the US is preparing to add taxes to the ME3.

Interesting to note that:

The proposal, tucked deep in the Senate tax-cut plan, calls for airlines headquartered in foreign countries to pay the U.S. incorporate tax rate if: 1) the carrier’s home country does not have an income tax treaty with the United States and 2) the carrier’s country of origin has fewer than two arrivals and departures, per week, operated by major U.S. airlines.
Both UPS and FedEx have fairly substantial operations in the UAE. Both of these should surely count as 'major US airlines'.
