editor’s briefing

DEAR ALL — I’m not a person who likes change. I’m that kind of person who loves planning, with plenty of time in advance and lots of information at hand to make concise decisions that will bring forecasted results—either good or bad. It has been two years since we changed our printing provider to improve costs without having to sacrifice the quality of our product. However, during the last eight months, I have received three unfavorable notices indicating hefty paper price increases. And I have been informed that more increments will occur.

Hello, Thank you for sending the April issue. It arrived today and it was great as I am interested in reading about the Airbus A350-1000 and definitely about Spantax. Though I have read a lot about Spantax already, it is always nice to see them mentioned again. We took many charter flights from Maastricht Airport, in the Netherlands, or from Dusseldorf to places like Palma de Mallorca and the Canary Island in the past. Although the aircraft sometimes looked a bit tired, the staff was always friendly and nice. Would it be possible to get an insight, via an article on aircraft engines, about trust and differences between the big engine manufacturers? And why (engine-wise) the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental does not appear to be interesting for passenger airlines but is ordered by cargo…
