@winglets747 No end in the Italian showdown? Qatar adds capacity to Milan, Rome and Venice as Emirates announces service to Bologna.
@winglets747 United Airlines to take A380s? It will save several tons of weight by not installing a crew rest. Because the entire aircraft will be one :).
@winglets747 Poor US airlines. Gov’t giving lip service to their anti-Gulf airline claims and now set to impose emission regulations on aircraft.
