No routes being dropped, no aircraft being grounded, no financial difficulties, company doing very well. New A320 just delivered, 6 more just been signed for, IOSA audit completed.
Stop stirring up crap, when you know something Harrier46, then you can post. Those of us who are still in employment with KC are very happy with our leadership, now the crap has been thrown out.

Oh and don't forget the new aircraft order, new type for KC, which is being finalised now.

Sound of tumbleweeds bouncing down the runway...

This sounds like an unfinished debate.

24 hours or 4 days in AMS, depends on which day u fly
24/48 hours in DXB
24/48 hours in FRA
3 day or 4 days in LHR, depends on day of arrival
BJS and SEL 24 hours.
BKK, 48 hours
HAJ was the cushy layover, 6 days but that route is being transferred to FRA now, so slips are much shorter.
We also have good runs down to AYT and IST.
The rest are on the Airbus fleet.

Okay, sounds like a challenge from Udachi Moya! So here goes.....! The A319 was originally acquired to fly routes from Astana, currently flown by Fokker 50s. Routes such as TSE/UKK. This upgrade would initially be unprofitable but with time the jet upgrade would generate more traffic. The same with putting one more A320 into Astana. The financial problems caused these plans to be changed, and also for new planned routes from Astana to be dropped. Aktau to Moscow (a fairly new route) was dropped because of low loads and again an unwillingness to accept losses while load factors built up. And HAJ is dropped after the summer. So the three new Airbuses due this summer will now be employed on existing routes, and only one will go to Astana, instead of the two planned. There are also worries about load factors on all routes. The company attempted to find other homes for them but could not. Now the company has managed to get back to profitability but the summer will be very difficult. Traditionally this period is the most profitable but three new leases to pay for and having to change the utilisation of these aircraft leaves management worried about the finances.
