Default A330-900 news

The A330-900 just got a new lease on life with a order for 40 Airframes from Emirates. The A380 was however sacrificed for the purchase.

Its a shame to see Emirates give up on the A380. The plane was a major financial drain that EK always refused to acknowledge. The 330/350 deal they just signed will ultimately make them a more sensible and stronger competitor.

I was happy with Emirates flying inefficient airplanes on routes that didn't make sense. It appears we are competing with a company that is figuring out how to run an airline.
