No one said it was dead. It will be uncompetitive at cost per flight. It is a simple shrink which has poor economics. . The A220-300 has the same cost per passenger as the A320NEO. This means it has about a 20% lower cost per flight than the -7 MAX. It will have a lower cost per passenger at the sa...Jump to post
See, it isn't dead tho. Now it looks like it, but considering WN said they wanna buy 500 of them eventually, it's not dead. Plus, there's a major difference between Boeing's E195-E2/MAX 7 and Airbus' A220-300/A319neo. The 195-E2 is smaller than the A220-300/A319/319neo/737-700, and the MAX 7 is lar...Jump to post

For me Honolulu, Seattle, Dallas or Miami have an equal opportunity. They said that the new MTOW allows them to do HKG-MIA non-stop with a good payload. Dallas is also an AA hub, like MIA, so it kind of stands out. With DL pulling out of the HK market, I'd not be surprised if they had a go at it wit...Jump to post
Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, scope clauses are really a thing only in the US. My question is: why do they exist? As far as aircraft go, the limitations as far as the US3 are concerned really limit their options. Why is there a weight limit on a certain category of aircraft? That ju...Jump to post
Damn that's a lot. Glad to see Embraer is getting many orders. I wish we could see more CRJ orders too tho. But I'm really happy that the E2 is picking up the paceJump to post
One bit of jargon I don't know is 'UFO' In context here, I've guessed it to mean; Unannounced firm order. For me, this thread should surely only refer to NEW orders.

I'd love to see a 777-300ERF. I hope they go through with it. But didn't they say a couple of months ago that it would require heavy modification?Jump to post
This is so inappropriate and unprofessional whoever decided to do this should be fired and their license revoked.Jump to post

If this is confirmed, its huge news for both parties. I wonder if this will use slots previously assigned to Iran Air. I'm pretty sure some of the new order is for their leasing arm. I really can't see how AirAsia Group can absorb 100 A330neo! Current they have around 30, previous order 66 A330neo ...Jump to post

Doubt DL will buy the 787, seeing as they canceled their existing order for it a while ago and their orders for both the A350 and A330neo. However I'd be surprised if they didn't order the MAX at some point, seeing the size of their 737 fleet. Definitely some MAX 8s and MAX 10s, maybe MAX 9 too. I ...Jump to post

Also note that while the 744/748 can technically carry more pax, to be competitive in the lucrative Business Class you have to fit completely different seats than what the manufacturers use to calculate pax numbers, and those seats are a completely different shape. They take more space and are inef...Jump to post
All of this is wrong. The reason the 748 failed miserably wasn't because it was ''cargo only''. Because, mind you, that aircraft seating size has a crapload of demand. Boeing just has it covered, with a certain plane called the 777-300ER. You may have heard of it. The 777-300ER also took over as kin...Jump to post
It would not surprise me to see UA swap the A350s for A321s. It would match UA's desire to work on their domestic network. I don't see an A321 order straight up. When UA has clearly positioned A350 as an 772 replacement (I think it was even mentioned in the press release) and even increased the ord...Jump to post

So after Airbus demonstrated that they are complete morons. It wasn't enough that they ruin the name, they had to make it demeaning in comparison with their own products. Well I guess the superior program has to lose something.
It's just an optical illusion. They were probably like 10-15 feet from the aircraft easily. Which isn't a lot, but still isn't that ''dangerous'' per se.Jump to post
To me, a much more appropriate comparison would be the 744 to the 777-300ER. Of course, comparisons differ widely based upon seating configurations and routes, but a good average fuel burn on a long haul route for the 744 seems to be about 25,000 lbs/hr, and the 773er seems to be about 18,000. So a...Jump to post

I'm expecting at least a couple more cancellations for the CSeries. There are still a few defunct and shaky customers left on the order list that may never get delivered.

OK to be fair AirAsia has 66 of them on order, which will come with 440 seats. Not that easy to fill them up. The 338 was a dead fish forever so it makes a lot of sense HA chose a more popular type, and let's be real, the A330 never stood a chance with AA, when they have tons of 787s on order. But c...Jump to post
Why would you not simply buy the used plane then? Because retrofitting it costs more money than some of the aircraft in their fleet and with those costs might as well get new frames. Yikes! I guess that makes more sense to buy a new plane then. It seems BA operates their A380s fairly well, so if I ...Jump to post
None. It serves them better as mostly O&D carriers to be stand alone, no reason at all to join an alliance. Besides, the networks of HA and especially S4 wouldn’t benefit the alliances much either.

I remember that some will be used for Phoenix to Hawaii, and I think some TCON too. Otherwise I'd expect them to replace a large part, if not all 757s, and maybe some domestic widebodies. I'd expect them to take over for the A321 on longer routes so that can be put on shorter ones.Jump to post
I'm rather surprised they've picked a plane as big as a 737-700 for this route, must have some seats blocked off since the runway in St. Pierre is rather short so it's weight limited. Why not use the CS-300 for this route? It does have the range and probably performs better from the short runway in...Jump to post

Oh come on.
