XiamenAir could place an $18 billion USD deal with Airbus

With the ongoing war between China and the US, there are rumors circulating about a possible order of up to 180 A321neos from XiamenAir. The deal will be valued up to $18 billion USD. I'm sure Airbus would be very keen to steal away one of Boeing's big customers in China, however I'm not so sure thi...

Re: Korean Air mulling widebody order

A350 would make sense as a 777-200 replacement and to help expand to smaller markets, while the 777X is a pretty good 777-300 replacement. I'm betting on a double order.

Re: Turkish to Start Newark Service

With EWR being added, Denver is now the only Star Hub with no TK service. Any chance of TK heading that way? Might be a better option than Emirates IMHO. I doubt the 333 can make that profitably, so I'd guess the A350 or 787 that's coming their way would do the trick, if they decide to launch fligh...

Re: Lufthansa: decision, which planes will be replaced by B777-9 in summer 2019

The 779 has the perfect capacity for a 744 replacement. I assume they'll use it to replace the 346 on popular routes and in turn use the 346 to replace the 744, and the 359 for the 343. Otherwise the 35K has a very similar capacity to the 346, so they could order it instead.
