    Thanks for this. I’m fascinated by the internal operations of airlines and how they make their decisions.

    Any reading recommendations on how airlines choose their metal? I’d love to learn more about the Boeing vs Airbus differences when it comes to fleet decisions.

    Interesting that long term they’re phasing out 747 and A340 aircraft but keeping the A330. Aren’t A340 and A330 about the same age? Is there something special about the A330 other than 2 vs 4 engines?

    I think it’s also kind of interesting that the two aircraft types being phases out are first going through 3- to 2-cabin conversion. Are they adding premium economy to those as well?

    Explain to me again how becoming Europe’s Five star airline works when you are reducing F – or are they ? and increasing C? with stated goals of decreasing CASK and raising RASK by increased seat capacity and shifting from premium to non- premium. Yeah that spells five stars to me…
