Commercial flight for passengers

I don’t get why airlines are starting to use such big planes on such short flights (short for the plane) :/

It’s to get the pilots used to the plane. It will be doing this route for a few moths or so before flying SFO-HKG.

It’s the first of the type so it’s used on short haul routes until the crew is familiarised with the aircraft. Every airline does it now.

Well I’ll just have to keep my eyes in the sky for a few months. Most of the flights that come from out west pass over my store before making the final turn to 04L and 04R at EWR

Like others have said, it’s to get the crew familiarised with the plane first, otherwise they’re going to run into lots of problems on long hauls.

If only they reopen the IAD-LOS route. Back to Nigeria. This aircraft would have been great.
