I kid of course.
Leave or remain, there will a large number of us in the UK that despise and will always despise the EU. The hatred will never go away. And I don’t want those people in the EU. They chose “leave”, so make it happen. I really feel sorry for those who want to remain in the EU, but it isn’t possible to...Jump to post

A lot of people are complaining about the new livery, but the design philosophy is IMHO much more than just this livery. And yes, I like this clean 21st century look instead of the Spiegelei. That is just so 1970s... And no, I’m not a LH employeeJump to post
Point of information, there are over 7,000 737NG's flying with a similar system, auto trimming nose down during a stall, that has a very small mention in the FCOM and isn't trained to in the simulator -- no accidents so far. There's way more to this than lack of FCOM information/simulator training....Jump to post
But the majority of the British people voted for “leave” No they didn't. A minute majority of the electorate that bothered voting on one given day, voted leave. This equates to significantly less than a third of the 'British people'. If you don’t vote, you do actually say: “I’m ok with the results.”Jump to post

That would be unnecessarily cruel! So what? They WANT it. Let them suffer. We suffer also, much less though, but we will suffer a bit. So why are you cheering for this?

Another created crime. That's all Mueller can hope for - trying to catch people in a lie about lawful activity. He can't find crimes made before the investigation, so he has to try to create one. Completely Orwellian/anti-American, but of course that's cheered by those that hate America, which is a...Jump to post
It is kind of a self filling prophesy to keep giving unprofitable airlines older planes and expect them to compete with others that have new ones. So you can only be profitable when flying shiny new planes? That's a really terrible job spinning what I wrote. If I meant to say airlines can only be p...Jump to post

I think all the “Airbus is getting desperate” noise because of the B797 is exagerrated. Airbus would be stupid if they don’t offer a Regional version. Boeing will do fine with the 797 when they can offer it for an attractive price. And Airbus will introduce an alternative in the future.Jump to post

Since it's been established by the CEO of Qantas that the latest carbon twins are just as efficient as the A380 why on Earth would anybody buy / risk using the A380 unless - they can see a solid long term 80% load factor ( whatever seating).Clearly if someone could - with the v low ownership price ...Jump to post

No, the developement of Poland is mainly paid by the EU. Poland and the EU are having some issues, because Poland tries to scr.w the EU.

Or probably a potential sweet deal offered by Boeing/GE. It’s not in their interest that the A330neo is selling.Jump to post

Airbus resorts to trickery on delivery goal As I read the Flight Global article, I was wondering how long it would take for A.net to come out and put a negative headline spin to that. I just knew if would not be disappointed. It was not question of if, just a question of when, and by whom . . . Yep...Jump to post
Airbus should have invested in a true A358. Not just a shrink of the heavy and capable A359, but a lightweight and smaller version.Jump to post

Right, but they must have a good comfort level in where such orders are coming from, or they wouldn't take the risk.
And don’t forget Boeing wants to increase the production of the B787 and therefore they have to sell a lot of planes A lot? 12 months x 2 per month = 24, and they keep getting pop up orders like UA with 9*787-9 not to mention backlog. And that’s I think Boeing wants this order badly. That suggests ...Jump to post

There is no way in hell LH is going to order the 787. What do you they have on order smaller than the A350-900? The 787 and A350 are compliments as much as they are direct competitors. A359 is larger than the 788/789. They will operate it, just a matter of time. I don’t see the 788 as a viable plan...Jump to post

While I'm glad to see that Airbus got someone to pick up the A338, I can't help but agree on its relatively bleak future. It seems like the airframe is going to get squeezed by Airbus products from the top (A339), bottom (A321 and improvements) and from the side by Boeing's stuff (787 and 797). I d...Jump to post

It looks more like they ripped off the My Travel Airways design and reversed it.
[quote="Newbiepilot”] And yet The A321 has been around for 24 years as the only stretched version of the A321.
