Well I would respectfully disagree - 2021 is a minimum of 2 years away, maximum just less than 3. It is not unheard of for airlines to top up some of their fleet when the manufacturer announces a...

I think it has certainly been successful for some airlines (BA for example who have said they would like more). It has been certainly very successful for EK too but the question is whether they have...

I saw something similar for sale at LAS airport about 15 years ago. It was specifically being marketed to allow an adult to stay all day (or all night) at a Casino or at a one-armed bandit if on a...

Am sure BA will keep their 12 frames for quite a few years. I think Airbus felt that 744s would pretty much be replaced 1:1 with the A380, certainly with the major 744 operators of BA, SQ, QF, LH,...

That's the whole point, the discussions around EK not taking any more of them so Airbus will shut the line down.

And still local councils wonder why there is a fly-tipping epidemic in the UK. I pay my council tax for refuse collection, why should they want more FFS?
