It is not in the strategic interest of the Emirates to cancel a Boeing order. You got it wrong. It is not in the strategic interest of boeing for Emirates to cancel 787 order. Emirates will go after the best deal available and if Airbus offers one, Emirates won't hesitate a bit to take over the one...Jump to post
Things could turn out in a very interesting way. EK could end up picking up all of EY's A350 order and cancel their own LOI for 787s, if Airbus and Rolls Royce offer the deal EK cannot refuse. I won't be surprised if the EK's A380 "order at risk" report is just a smokescreen to hide a much...Jump to post

Maybe the solution should be to equip airports with commercial traffic with "drone killer" devices to keep the perimeter safe for aircraft on departure and approach patterns? This way any unauthorized UAV would be instantly disabled and eliminated. And the idiot who flies it there would le...Jump to post
even with these orders the a338 is still far from resurrected. it's still an orphan frame
Delta is the only reputable airline currently on the 330neo order book. That's BS. Plain and simple BS. Try telling to all A330neo buyer's faces their company isn't reputable. They'll laugh you out. Every buyer is legit as long as the money's in the bank. "Blue Chip customer" is a.net's m...Jump to post
Take a look at the 330neo order book. It's more dried up than last year's fruitcake.
Absolutely terrible and tasteless. The outgoing one was classy and one of best looking liveries out there.Jump to post
This time line would make for an interesting next 12 months here on a.net! :D BCA CEO said they could announce in '19 and still keep '25 EIS.

My fingers are crossed for Airbus winning this one. A350-1000ULR will be stunning, capable and efficient machine!Jump to post
I like it.
It's got a bit of the original LaudaAir feeling to it.
Airbus needed a decision by Air Asia before they had any hopes of getting other airlines to order larger numbers. From Airbus point of view: - give the other customer the same or a lower price than Air Asia and Air Asia will ask for an even lower price or switch - offer the other customer a higher ...Jump to post
It's a shame 717 wasn't developed further, really. It was (and still is) better short-hauler than 737-600 and 737-700. I've read somewhere (AirInternational monthly magazine, most likely) that AirTran wanted more 717-200s and was willing to even commit to 717-300 as long as Boeing would find another...Jump to post
Let's face it: the only chance A380 has is if - and that's a BIG IF - Airbus puts new engines on it. Which seems very unlikely at the moment. For aesthetics sake, I hope it clears its backlog and then flies into oblivion. Airbus should devote itself to making A350s even better than they are now. Hel...Jump to post
This tells me that IAG got better deal on leased 777-300ERs than 787-10s, as those would be a much more suitable as a direct replacement for the outgoing non-ER 777-200s.Jump to post
I'm sure they will announce on the final press/industry day of the show. If I remember correctly, Tony Fernandes did that already last few times...Jump to post
Nothing will replace those aging 747 rustbuckets better than the cargo-converted 777-300ER.
Also the overhead bins of the boeing sky interior on the ERs are really well done. https://preview.ibb.co/dP28UJ/B8_E6_AEE6_C7_E5_43_B6_8_CC3_7_F6_D3_C3_FA649.jpg I think you're confusing sky interior with "signature" interior, which Boeing introduced on the 777-200 and later adapted to t...Jump to post
But anybody flying on Air Asia (an increasing amount of people given how much growth they project) is, and would be flying on 9-abreast A330s instead of 9-abreast 787s had a Boeing order materialised.... You do realize there are other A330 operators in Asia who use normal, 8-abreast, comfortable la...Jump to post
There isn't a 10 across 787 around, though, I don't even think it is possible to go beyond the absurdity of the A330 9 abreast, and thats coming from a person who has sat in one such Airbus. Thing is - while you still can avoid the few carriers that use 9-abreast A330, you CAN'T avoid the uncomfort...Jump to post
Contrary to what some are writing here, especially one member with "Delta" and abbreviated 767-400 type in his nickname, famous for sending letters/emails his local congressman, Delta always ends up buying from the manufacturer that gives the best deal.

From the AW&ST article: "And of concern for Boeing, executives of 72% of the surveyed airlines say aircraft other than the NMA would best meet their midmarket requirements.

I've always said that 777-300ER is a prime candidate for cargo conversion. It will happen - the question is "when", not "if".Jump to post
They will need upgrades though - the 328s are aging planes with old technology. I dont think this will happen. What? Check your facts again. Do-328 is more modern, lighter and faster design than any ATR or Dash. Its near-jet speed wasn't matched until Q400 came around. It was the best turboprop at ...Jump to post

Expect CS500 aka A250 announcement by LeBourget 2019's along with larger, rewinged A32x family members at the latest.
A duo of perfect 737 annihilators.

Interest from airlines is easy. Ask any airline: "Would you like a plane with 270 single class seats, that has a fuel burn per seat mile lower than the A321, a range of 5000nm and will have a list price of 160 million dollars?" ...now add those three lovely "neo" letters at the ...Jump to post
