I posted a comment highlighting the details, and above all, the very old age (27.9 years average) of the 3 airplanes this airline uses.

Any particular reason why such details cannot be made public here ?

Unless of course this is an infomercial.

This is your first and only comment on this article. As usual, you resort to insults and invective without reason. We await your grovelling apology.

All received messages are - unfortunately - copied to my gmail account. There is no technical glitch. Even those that are said to report a problem usually come through. We can hardly apologise for not posting a message you never sent.


Why would I lie about having sent a message ?

I merely posted details of their 3 B767 planes of which the oldest is just the 10th ever built. I thought that would provide interesting details.

Everyone can look it up here

I'm sorry if I jumped into conclusions.

Next time I will politely ask if my message was received or not if it's not published and I assume it would not breach your policy what can or cannot be published.

Andrew, don't waste your time attempting to have an open, worthwhile debate with this so-called "Editor" as the obligatory and predictive condescending, arrogant response will be your reward unfortunately the editor appears to think controversy and insults gain readers perhaps? For me it's pathetic and a turn off!
