Nice Mad Dog. They become rare, on the day that American Airlines retires them.

Thanks :) Unfortunately BUC is going to retire MD fleet soon as well... there is only few airlines in UE which use MD80: Anda Air, ALK Airlines, Bravo Airways, Bukovyna Airlines (all from Ukraine), Danish Air Transport and BUC...

A 787 between BUD and WAW is indeed rare. Probably a positioning flight.

Yes, always flights with callsign LOT9xxx are technical or between airports without passengers.

I can "only" zoom to 600mm; so the quality is far from vader's, but I thought this was a nice catch.

Nice that you got that flight once. It's soon going to be cancelled! By the way, it's the only Brussels Airlines aircraft in Star Alliance livery.
