@aeroTELEGRAPH Two Ex-#SingaporeAir #airbus #a380 are being dismantled since the start of December.
@Airlineroute KLM intends to increase 787-10 service to Atlanta from 7 to 11 weekly from 29DEC19. The 787-10 is scheduled to serve Atlanta from 27OCT19 (subject to change).
@Airlineroute Neos has started bi-weekly Milan Malpensa – Mumbai charters with Boeing 767, since 07DEC18.
@winglets747 Heading into 2019, will be interesting where this goes: AirAsia Indonesia approached Garuda about cooperation.
@winglets747 Peach was always low profile, very conservative, and tempered expectations. So it’s a bit surprising to hear CEO suddenly say A321neoLR could be test case for later introducing widebody aircraft.
