Re: LH orders 20 B789 and 20 additional A350; Will sell 6 A380s back to Airbus

Boeing would not take any of the used A380's even if LH wanted more 748i's. This guaranteed follow-on orders with Airbus to get the best price. Those LH 380's I believe are hoped to be sold to larger charter outfits with much denser seating (according to neighbour involved with large fleet and airli...

Re: Air Canada will add 4 more A330-300'S in 2019

If a 788 is too expensive for a route, then an A330 can't fix it. The 787 is more fuel-efficient, plus the 788 is smaller than the 333, so I doubt if that's a problem the 333 is gonna fix it. Purchase price figures into the economics of flying. Using an older (and by extension, cheaper) A330 to rep...
