This side up

I can't help but wonder if somebody is worried that their pilots won't know which way to fly their airplane!

Another new arrival

On the heels of Interjet, our latest arrival at LAX is really a return from the past. Scandinavian Airlines was last seen at LAX in 1994, after having flown here since 1954. That first flight in 1954 (in a DC-6) is noteworthy for being the first commercial flight to use the trans-polar route between Europe and North America. Scandinavian arrives several times a week from Stockholm, Sweden. So far, I've seen both A330-200 and A340-300 aircraft in the Scandinavian colors. The fuselage is not white, by the way; instead it's a very light beige or gray (Pantone Warm Gray 2, according to Wikipedia).

New arrival

One of two recent arrivals on the scene at LAX is Mexican carrier ABC Aerolineas, aka Interjet. So far, we get one flight a day from/to Guadalajara, Mexico. Interjet parks at Terminal 2 with a 150-seat A320.
