Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

One observation with the recent swap with Kuwait airways is that they took 8 x 338s for 5 x 359s , so going by that example of Delta were indeed swapping 359s for 339s it would be a lot more than 10 x 339s

Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

One factor is the 763's are paid for and any new A333/9 wouldn't. Once those old 763's start requiring heavy checks the equation will change significantly, hence this top-of order IMO, if it's really for DL. Nevertheless I still expect them to place a top-off order at some point. An airline like DL...

Not a hope in hell of a 77L beating an A359 on fuel per ton of payload.


Any idea of how the 359 performs on HKG EWR sector, does it require a payload hit on the inbound?
