You can bet your profit share that they're already working on prying some compensations from Boeing.

Any news about the JAL 744Fs? Are we getting them or not?

Looks like we will be getting the JAL 744Fs as apparently the CF6-80 is being added to the DDG?

All three engines! Luckily, the GE is the best and easiest to manage, so not much extra work.

Cool

The standard DDPG incorporates all 3 engines anyway, RR, GE, PW.

We look after a cf6-80 operator and their MEL/DDPG includes all 3 engine types.

I was told not in the fleet forum recently, but according to this site, it says we will.

I guess it is not set in stone until they arrive on property.
