I would just like to ask a question and see what the response is to it.


I you had to buy a jumbo jet for your company would you buy the a/c with the time tested airframe or would you buy the a/c that is completely new design and why would that be your choice.

Depends on what your needs are I guess. Look at VIR for example, ordering the new A380. I know SIA will fly theirs first, but as of yet no one has it in service. Yet Branson has ordered it anyway. That'll give him the 380, 346 and 744, together with the 343. What a fleet! I guess you either want the fleet with the hugest airliners, carrying the most PAX, or are a relatively new airline ordering something that has established itself over the years... such as the 737 or 320.
