Re: Southwest maybe considering an Airbus order

If WN was to order 300-400 of them could Airbus deliver them at the rate that WN would prefer, somewhere in the 50+ per year range? They ha...

Re: Southwest maybe considering an Airbus order

I don't see them ordering anything other than MAX until NSA shows up. Having two pilot pools raises their costs as I doubt the pilots union would allow the pay scale to be any different from the 737 as well as limiting crew and route flexibility. Now a Max-10 order I could definitely see happening.
