NWA should replace their DC-10's with either 777's or A330's or A340's

I don't think SIA needs the A330 because the B777-200 the can do what the A330 can do.
I think that the SIA should get B747-400ER and A340-600s.

Okay, the last one is a Piper. But still I would like to fly one of those on a scheduled service - I would ask for a jump-seat  Big grin

Oooops... OMG, you're right L-188... those are really Pipers... shame on me!

I'm not so familiar with the difference between a Piper and a Cessna. Well the problem is that we don't see those cute BA Pipers here in STR very often, I haven't even seen them on one of my many trips to UK. In fact I have to confess that I don't even know where Popham (the location of all 3 photoes) is situated.

I would like Air Canada to rid themselves of their DC9's and get A318. Despite my love of the A340, I would love for AC to get some 777s.

I think Garuda should get some A340s, since they are very happy with their Airbuses so far. In fact the leased some A340s couple of months back.

And also some A319/320/321 to replace the 737s.

Qantas should get the 777 and BA should get the 777-300.

All airlines should get Boeing's upcoming Sonic Cruiser.

I'm gonna have to agree with B757300! I think all airlines, except WN, should fly the 757's. I just LOVE this aircraft.

KLM should get 777s,
CSA should get 767-300s (to build a larger international route system, and supliment the A310s) and Fokker 100's for shorter European routes, because I'd much rather see/hear a Fokker flying over in English class than a 737...the engines have a great sound!

I think Comair and Southwest should order 744s.

On the more serious note,

AA and DL getting the 753. (After air travel shapes up again)

SIA don't need the A330 as they have tons of B777s at hand.

I hope... every airline in the world buys more B744s and B777s.  Smile

All applicable airlines should put together a consortium to build and then fly more Tristars.
Although I think there is more chance of easyJet moving into the longhaul market with a 500Y configuration 744 than there is of building more Tristars.

I think airlines should place new orders cancel current ones for the following:

UA: Cancel remaining Airbus order. Order a mix of 757/763/777 to offer more seats on fewer flights for domestic use plus the 763/777 would give them International use as well.

AA: Cancel remaining 738 order. Order same as UA for the same reasons. The M80 fleet that AA/TW has is rather young. Then ground DC9/727 fleet.

DL: Cancel remaining 738 order. Order more 764/777. Ground 727/M80 fleet and pull a few L1011's out of storage for a while until the 764's get here.

CO: Cancel 737-700 and -800 orders. Replace with 739/757/753/764

US: Cancel 318/319 order. Replace with 321/763 order.

NW: Cancel 330 order. Keep 753 order then add 764/777 for domestic and international use.

LanChile should get some ATR-72s for regional flights
And some A-321s for their south american network
The rest of the fleet is just right.
