Meanwhile, BCA is looking at higher prices to put together an Airbus and chuckling up their sleeves. Fight, fight, fight!Jump to post
In a normal world, Airbus would be mad as hell about the threat to their business that the UK and the EU are creating by not being sensible. But then again, they are part-owned by Germany and France, so they sing from the same hymn book. Maybe they will get cheap loans and other subsidies to relocat...Jump to post

AA are big boys, and know how to read a contract. It's amazing it comes to this, for such small potatoes. What are AA thinking? Their FICO score is gonna take a ding!
That will help fill the production bridge to the 777x. The freight market picked up just in time to extend the life of the 767F, 777F and 747F. Without the booming freight market the 767 line would exclusively be for tankers, 777 production rates would be lower and the 747 production line would hav...Jump to post
Ronaldo's third was one of the best goals I have ever seen, WC or not. My picks before the tournament were Belgium and France, but the way France played today, they are going nowhere. I hope they pick it up. But as long as it's not Germany or Brazil AGAIN, I will be happy.Jump to post
Surely a topic better suited for Polls and Preferences than here? I'm getting concerned that airliners.net is turning more and more into a "plane spotter's nerd fest" instead of a place to discuss and debate serious issues in, and affecting, the industry! Lighten up, Francis! But then the...Jump to post
He has been fundraising for quite a while. I remember seeing his promo video over a year ago. The plan is go go J31 to 737 to larger narrowbodies...if I am not mistaken. His original videos did not use the term Sharia, it was spun as an anti no frills airline (but not full service). Essentially a c...Jump to post
I thought we had already established on here: 1. Almost every airline will be beating a path to Boeings door to hand over deposits to order the plane BUT 2. Despite this Boeing are still struggling to make the business case work. The reality is - talk is cheap so at the moment many airlines are int...Jump to post
The Calder 727 was pretty sweet, as was his DC-8.
My knowledge doesn't go back much beyond that. Were they the first "specials"?
Defending a country ruled by an extremist theocracy that's pumping billions of dollars into terrorism is pretty pathetic of you. I got confused, which of both countries are you talking about now?

I think it is going to be quite lean with orders. The world economy is going to slow down in 2019/2020 and there are too many orders already. If I had the chance I would wait a bit 8-) Anyhow, my predictions: > Qatar still needs friends, so I would not be surprised if they would order some top up A...Jump to post
I've read an interview with Jörg Henneman, Head of LH Group Commercial Fleet Management where he states that the 777X will feature standardized cabin configuration throughout the LH Group. This would mean that mainly LX and/or OS, but perhaps also other family-members are linked to 777X ops somewhe...Jump to post
TAP flies to JFK and EWR so that travelers in New Jersey don't have to pay over $20 in tolls, as well as suffer through NEW YORK traffic and a minimum 1 hour 5 minute drive. TAP flies to EWR because they're a Star Alliance member, there is significant connectivity for the alliance there, and as not...Jump to post
I see nothing wrong with it too. I hope it brings added traffic into Portugal, more N. Americans should see this wonderful country, all of it is worth exploring, & it may tempt those who do to visit the less visited parts of Spain in the process. Btw, the Portuguese people are some of the nices...Jump to post

The difference in orders between the 777-8/9, 326, and A330neo, 214, is 112 and the 777-8/9 was launched a year before the A330neo. So if Airbus sells 112 in the next year, they will be equal on frames (but still less on market value). Chances of that happening? Ungatz. Better to hope that 777X ord...Jump to post
He also says that Boeing has discussed the project with 60 airlines and he downplays the idea that the product may be launched at Farnborough. If BCA doesn't announce launch at Farnborough, all the Airbus fanboys here will be hurling derision at them. Then again, they will probably do that if they ...Jump to post
Happy to be corrected but how could they have launched the NEO 2 years earlier unless it was to be a glider?As I understand it the engine was in fact 6 months late.Probably a very good thing actually as the 'ten' of which the 7000 is a derivative had the high temp' coating fixed.So at least it flie...Jump to post
Wow, Qantas North looks phenomenal on the 737 MAX! This is literally not even remotely close to QF but whatever. Haters gotta hate I guess. Honestly it's a lovely transition. Well done Westjet! I figured it was a play on the Spirit of Canada/Australia and the continuation of the tail down the fusel...Jump to post
It's worth a look, as conceptually it could be a winner for QF (excluding all the conference room etc. silliness of course). All the other design projects seem to be wrapping/wrapped up. A32Xneo's are flying, as are the A300-900, and also the A350 brothers. A330-800 will be soon, and nothing's comin...Jump to post

I'm coming at this from a different perspective: the 'leaked' memo serves as disclosure to investors that the anticipated level of deliveries (and profits) are at risk. That's its real function. It's different that mine, that much is true. ;-) I think it's a little poke to Hamburg and Toulouse to g...Jump to post
So what is process we’re looking at? Moving assembly lines? Keep in mind any such investment is a long-term expensive one if you are talking about remaking your production methods drastically. I question if investing in the A320 and 737 beyond this surge of orders is worth it. These designs will no...Jump to post
