I was hoping to get the opinion of those out there on what kind of fleet layouts you think the airlines will have in the next decade. For instance, NW, DL, UA, AA, Alaska, Air Canada, Mexico and the rest, European carriers like BA, AF, Aeroflot.. Asia, like Qantas, Cathay.
All boeing, all bus, mainline rj.. or a mix

Delta, as Boeinggoingone said, will be full Boeing. Unfortunately we'll see the demise of the MD-88/90 community one day, and the MD-11's already going.

Fleet will look something like this:

B738NG and POSSIBLY the B7377NG

B7572, B762 B763B763ER (-200 might be gone by then)

B764ER & B777ER

Cockpit layouts make the pilot groups more consolidated. Will be a mighty fine fleet, but no t-tails or 3-holers  Sad

UA - Bus

Aside from not wanting to wait on the 737NG... UA has shown little evidence whatsoever of a desire to depart Boeing as its primary fleet provider.

Mexicana - will most likely end with an all Airbus fleet.

AA: MD-80 (?), 737NG, 757, 767, 777, perhaps 7E7
DL: 737NG, 757, 767, 777, perhaps 7E7
CO: 737NG, 757, 767, 777, perhaps 7E7
(do we see a pattern here?  Smile)

NW: DC-9, A32X, 757, A33X, 747-400; I am skeptical about the A380
UA: A32X, 757, 767, 777, 747-400 (no 7E7 for a while)
AS: All 737NG, bye-bye MD-80s; perhaps 737-800 and/or 737-900ERX
AC: All Airbus (A320, A330, A340 families)
BA: A32X, 7E7 or A33X, 777 inc. 773ER, 747-400, perhaps 747Advanced
QF: 737NG, 767 (?), A33X, 747-400/ER, A380, perhaps 747Adv
CX: If they continue to be unhappy with A346: A33X, 777 inc. 300ER, 747-400, perhaps 747Adv

Not too familiar with the rest....

757 is going out of production.... and Song is flying only 752's. What do you see replacing the 752 in the Delta mainline fleet. Will DL increase the mix on the 737NG? perhaps add the 739 to replace the 757's that migrate to Song? What will replace the MD's?

Ten years from now Northwest will look just about the same that it is today except for the DC-10s being gone and all A330s delivered. There will still be a huge DC-9 fleet.

So no one thinks the CRJ, ERJ, or 717 plays a place in the fleets. I'd venture to guess that the CRJ900, ERJ190 and those types will eventually be added into mainline fleets in some shape or form.

NW: A DC-9 Replacement, 747-400, 757-200/300, A319/A320, A330-200/300, and lots of CRJs to XJ and 9E.

I dont know about the others, b/c I dont really pay attention to what management says at the others.



The New American is arriving.

6max, so your saying that NW will ditch ALL of it's 757's, including it's breand new 752's and 753's?? Wow, so they'll also COMPLETELY get rid of all their 747's?? Common sense and reality, two very good things to hold on to  Big grin.

Solnabo, I seriously doubt that LH will be an all Airbus carrier - they're too smart to be throwing one of the two big ones out...

If Boeing doesn't annoy them again like they did a few years back - there was a dispute between LH Technik and Boeing about some part of the maintenance business that Boeing was thinking of getting into that, until then, was only offered by LH Technik and some competitors - and during this dispute, LH told Boeing something like "We don't build airplanes, so you stay out of our business - or we won't look favourably at whatever planes you build when we're thinking about ordering something in the future".

At least for a while, the remaining 733/735/744 pax and M11 cargo fleet will be all that connects them to Boeing, but - as I've said - they're way to smart to be going "one supplier only".



Smile - it confuses people!

Regarding AC, I really don't see a suitable Airbus replacement for the 767. The 330 too big to be a 767 replacement, the 321 is too small and doesn't have the range. I'm betting AC will settle on the 7E7.

I know its a longshot at best but AC may be a launch customber for an A380 Combi version?

my opinion on AC if theyre still round:
CRJ
A319
A320
A321
B767 (possibly but dont think so)
A332(?)
A333
A343
A346


all the best,

737-800 (MD-80 replacement)

7E7 (767 & A300 replacement)
737-900X (757 replacement)

Delta:

Embraer-190/195
737-700/800 (will be the MD-88/90 replacement)

777-200/300
737-900X (757-200 replacement as the newer frames are with Song and the oldest a/c are retired)
7E7 (Will further do away with DL's 767-200/300 fleet)

Embraer 190/195
A319/320

7E7

As im sure most of you will disagree with me, I see SAA possibly getting a boeing or two by 2010.
