Quickly disappearing with American, but assume it will take some time before Delta get rid of all theirs. Especially if you count the MD95...

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

Today at midday the light was a bit harsh despite it being winter. Anyway needed to see the new Piper M600 as sales guys at Piper call it. Not much difference to older Meridians on the outside but it got an extra 100hp under the hood. N600EU Piper PA-46-600TP https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4217/3568...

Re: MCO-ATL-CDG-OUA on Delta and Air France

Great report with a few challenges.

I do understand that things do not always go according plan, but visit one and two to the AF counter at CDG would have had my blood boiling!
