This thread should be closed. Delta is not fighting against the rest regulations. Delta is simply waiting on the finalization like everyone else.Jump to post

I call BS on this article.
Job advisements gave away all this information? Yeah, right.
Also, testing narrowbody production rates of 100 per month? Complete BS. Definitely not going to happen over the next 10-15 years.
Yes, Delta knows when the CS1s will be delivered next year almost down to the day, but this is not something that will be made public.
You can get a rough delivery schedule with data sources like Flightglobal's Fleets Analyzer.
A lot of the heavier maintenance (d checks) on US aircraft are being sent out of the country. Singapore, China, Costa Rica... Labor is cheap, but is quality up to snuff? Yes, the quality is just as good, if not better, than the US. I was personally involved in a conversation where a maintenance exe...Jump to post

We haven't hit Labor Day yet. Summer is still peaking. I don't think so. When I was a kid in the 60's and 70's, I never was in public school before mid Sept. Somehow since then, although summer doesn't end until 9/21, the start date of schools in the US has crept earlier, now to mid-late August. So...Jump to post

thats how the world spins, just like it was pure politics when Cagle put the tax in place. Good for Delta. Amazing political spin by you.

Collection of the tax was suspended because it violated federal law.

I think what is messing up the boarding on US based carriers is all those priority groups that mean you now have to fight your way past people who have the "privilege" of sitting on a metal tube longer.

I think the more immediate focus is retiring the MD 80s and 90s.

So how do you define the 5 (at times 6) abreast Avro Regional Jet (née BAe146)? :scratchchin: It is a regional jet. I get that, but if you're talking about fuselage width, the Avro is 3.4m wide, and therefore wider than the DC-9/MD-80/717 at 3.1m, which in your words makes it a Narrowbody rather th...Jump to post

Only EK could afford to buy HA.
