Let's just hope the next refresh doesn't take 15 years!

I liked that Maimon started his speech by saying that they made several mistakes in the past and this a new beginning.. will wait and see.

His PR also prepared for him a punchline: "we had a dream, now we have a dreamliner"....

So it's a similar config to the UA 77W

Correct, in a narrower space.

Too soon to tell at this stage but very unlikely

The big question is if they will price their awards as J or F

You're right. Technically it's called business, so F would be unfair, but you never know with them

You can be sure they will do exactly that if it ever comes to the NYC or LAX route.

חמורו של משיח

I don't know what you mean by that, but I like it :D

I liked that Maimon started his speech by saying that they made several mistakes in the past and this a new beginning.. will wait and see.

He can't be trusted, hard to teach an old dog new tricks.

Don't give them any ideas

Its not a matter of if, its a matter of when.

They're getting it in September and won't have EWR flights for Sukkos? Why not?
And what happened to the rumor of HKG getting it first?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They are not 100% sure when they are getting it, possibly last week of August. Then a full week of technical testing in Israel to get the flying certification, plus a month of staff training to London. I don't see how they would have it ready for Soukos.. but you never know

No idea what happened with HKG. Maybe United's decision to put their Polaris on that route

Silly to charge more for flights with new plane. Childish.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
