Summer returns

It's mid-June, and we're now well into the summer travel season. This means a number of additional flights, some added destinations, and that our seasonal carriers have returned. Among these is Air Berlin, who parks at the International Terminal and operates flights to Berlin and Dusseldorf on alternate days using A330-200s.

Alitalia uses B777-200s on service from/to Rome, Italy, and parks at Terminal 2.

Arkefly also operates out of Terminal 2 with B767-300 service between Los Angeles and Amsterdam.

KLM offers year-round service from Amsterdam, using B747-400s. This summer, like last summer, they have added an additional flight using MD-11s. Sadly, also like last year, this may be the last hurrah for these aircraft, as the KLM MD-11s are being retired. Some of the ones we saw at LAX last year have already been scrapped.

Bonus shots IV

Dozen number next. The best part about this series is that it's composed of photos that I already have, and the writing is incredibly simple. Enjoy!

Bonus Shots III

So, what was going to be simply a batch of extra photos has morphed into a series. I give you dozen number three.

Bonus Shots II

What was originally going to be one post of extra photos grew to be so unwieldly that I split it into two; here are a dozen more. Enjoy!

Bonus Shots

It's' inevitable that while I'm working on assembling photos for one post, I'll end up taking some back out because I found a better one, or because there's just too many and some trimming needs to be done. Or, I'll spot something interesting that has no relation to to subject at hand. Usually those shots get passed by, but this time, you still get to see them. Here's a dozen rescued from the cutting room floor.
