Doesn't Air Asia have a large A321neo order already, 100 ? AirAsia has an order for 100 A321neo, AirAsia X doesn't. AirAsia could of course transfer some to AirAsia X, but they will want to take all of those 100 A321s for the regional operations of AirAsia. So if AirAsia X goes A321neoLR it will co...Jump to post
What’s the 787-10 max capacity? They are certified to carry maximum of 440 passengers. Same as A330-300 with door modifications or B777-200. I wonder why it hasn’t gained traction with high density domestic JAL yet? JAL has said last year that they will use high density A350s on domestic routes. Bu...Jump to post
If a plane breaks in half you can't really call it a runway excursion, this is a proper overshoot that has resulted in a full hull loss, you could call it a crash landing. Ugh, lawdy lawd!

Current 787-10 customers: 3 All Nippon Airways Most are part of bigger 787 orders, so the numbers will likely change over time. Even if it's part of a larger order, why only 3 for ANA? The 787-10 will start to replace their domestic 777-300s. As there are only 7 planes to replace it will not grow i...Jump to post
I see some candidates mentioned in this thread. My 2 cents: Likely: KE, LY. Top ups: KL, NH, BA. Maybe: AA, LH, SV, AF, AC. Not likely: ET, QR, KQ. Some Chines carriers will also get likely get them. TG is a good candidate too. I still believe the 787-10 is perfect for EI, despite them operating an...Jump to post
Boeing's net order total for the 787 this year up to september 2018 is 104. I would say that's fast enough to sustain the growth. There are still several announced MoUs that need to be firmed up that could bring the total up to 168 for this year. But they will have to keep on getting new orders over...Jump to post
For now we have the following confirmed current/future 787-10 operators.

So what is involved in bringing ALL in service (RR) 787s to Trent 1000 TEN standard? Would that not have been a quicker and cheaper route to take? rather than take a year finding a solution, which might not work.

What I don't understand is why the A350 is having none of these problems. Is it a completely different engine (size), and why can't that engine work on the 787? Will RR ever fix it properly, or will this keep happening as the hours build up? RR already has fixed this issue on the Trent 1000 TEN ver...Jump to post

Boeing has recently already changed a good bit of the 787-8 design in order to make it more similar to the 787-9. But that's mostly for production efficiency reasons, not to improve the performance of the 787-8. So it's not that obvious that these kind of changes improve the performance that much th...Jump to post
The 4 737-800s are new leased frames, they will replace 4 737-700s. It's not yet known how they are going to replace the remaining 737-700s.

I think a top up order for the 787 is pretty much in the bag for Boeing, it will probably bigger then just the 10 options they currently hold. Anything else, we'll see.

Tata also has a 49% stake in AirAsia India.

Does anyone know what the 797 is? 737-11 with 757-200+ Range? 767-200 size with 737-10 Efficiency? Boeing hasn't launched the 797 yet, so we cannot be 100% certain.

The only possibility is with DHL. They are a big package hauler, which the A380F would potentially be good at.

The conclusion has to be that it migh...Jump to post
Does it really matter what Boeing does with the 737 MAX?
The only thing that really matters for Airbus is if this suggested stretch of the A320 will bring in a bigger return on the investments into the A320neo program then when Airbus does nothing.

The most 787 deliveries in 1 month was actually in December 2014, Boeing delivered 18 in that month. So a high number of deliveries in December is possible.

The A380 is too large to be an effective combi. How many routes out there do you think can handle a ~A330 load of passengers plus ~77F volume of cargo (or v/v) each way approximately every day? The A380 is too expensive (in both acquisition costs and operating costs) to be lugging around an empty t...Jump to post
I think they would be interested.
But they wouldn't want to pay for the development cost of such version. So unless Airbus find some other customers to spread the costs it will never happen.
