I guess be grateful an Airbus pilot can only fly a max of four legs then. I guess they start to melt if they try for a 5th leg.

I thought I heard on top of the 190 being costly to fly, they are trying to fly them less as it puts less hours towards the big maintenance checks due soon. Plus, 190 serves a lot of business route frequency. No businesses open/flying = no need for the amount of frequency. Theres gotta be some European airline that now doesn’t need 220’s, be nice if we could swap into someone else's delivery slots and just dump the 190’s earlier than scheduled.

Trade E190s plus a bit of cash in exchange for their order book of A220s, or a portion of them

LAX is not slot controlled
