Babies are tiring. That’s why the 737-600 and A318 are hard to find.

Thinking of Europe

All the Air France strike news has rekindled my interest in flying to Europe. Seriously. Lufthansa has strikes about 1/3 of the time I have a reservation with them. Memories. Last time I got to fly British Airways and Air France. The time before got me my first ride on a 747-8. All those trips were bought with miles, but Lufthansa paid cash to rebook me, so I earned miles. Strikes can be fun.

G-VWIN Flying Scrap or Saved?

Is the former Virgin Atlantic A340-600 G-VWIN flying scrap or will it see passengers again? UAM announced they bought the aircraft for dismantling. It landed in Tupelo, MS for likely it's last flight. Then a few weeks later I spotted it flying into SFO. It stayed for two days then went to Manila. There's a A330/340 heavy maintenance base there. Will G-VWIN see the sky again? At least some parts will.
