[threeid][/threeid] No they have literally hundreds of 737 NG’s and new A320’s This order is a competition between the MAX and NEO...

I wonder which existing fleet replacements they're going after? They have 321 and 739's on order, along with the CS100. This seems to be targeting the 150-160 seat gauge? This RFP will be DL's first order for 'next gen' narrowbodies, so either neo or MAX. No they have literally hundreds of 737 NG’s...Jump to post

According to a pretty reliable site: https://sites.google.com/site/unitedfleetsite/mainline-fleet-tracking UA has 5x 738MAX coming in 2018. True?

An -8% PIP, sharklets and low passenger count (<400) brings an A380 a long way. I would prefer the spacey & quiet cabin of the A380 on real long flights.

Well the -705 is just a capacity restricted -900. The newer winglets on the latest CRJs are from the “next gen” package of improvements only found on aircraft built after a certain point. Older -900s will have the older winglets also. To my knowledge there hasn’t been a -700 built in quite some time...Jump to post

Why are the Trents on 787 having issues and not all the others on A330 and A380's ? Do they have some new metal that doesn't work well at high temperatures ?

An A350-800 is a new derivative with significant development costs, but a 787-8LR is a "slight rework of the 787-8"? I don't get that. Both are a straight shrink of the model above. Where do you see a difference? The only difference for me is that Airbus will already have done a lot of th...Jump to post
A350-800 would fit the capacity slot of the 787-_9_ and not the _8_ It does seem Boeing has an edge: on the higher end of capability Boeing will have the 777-8 for sure. On the lower end, Boeing can do a slight rework of the 787-8 like Stitch mentioned. The 787-8 is considerably more capable than i...Jump to post

I did not know QF returned to YVR service. SYD-YVR 744 now. Sorry! But I think 789 is just a flight test sometimes in PDX, Moses Lake, WA and YVR from Boeing any of type 767,777,787 and 737-7/8/900.
I think that everybody is overlooking an aircraft type. The B787 and A350 are virtually undeliverable for the next 8 years. I expect to see BA replace a whole bunch of B772's with A339neo. The aircraft also suits DL and I can see a follow up order there, they just need more. I dont see JL going for...Jump to post
