      Yes… It is to be appreciated :). They have not managed to grow their own fleet, but they are investing in other companies for stability :)

    They didn't want to increase their own fleet, of course there is this possibility! They chose a unique method of expansion, a pity that Tarom lost this "train" (this plane). I don't understand why they don't put Bucharest on their route map. By the way, Qatar is growing, since September 17, it frequents Bucharest on 5 weekly flights, adding another flight on Tuesday. Anyway, it's still a little! Maybe after they start receiving the new A320 neo, they will reach daily flights.
