There will be a next generation jet for the market seating between 19-50pax when the following occurs: 1. Single Pilot operations with reductions in the number of turns and hours the pilot can fly in a given day/week.

Folks, Just saw this announcement regarding the new Turkish Airlines uniforms.

My personal opinion is the 737-10 sales will take off after the CMC turbine PIP.

Hard to believe a thread about two airframe builders having 16 months to submit bids could garner 106 posts. Wow. Wake me up sometime by the end of 2020 after Qantas mulls over the tenders for a year and is ready to decide. I will say this... If the 778 loses this one, then it's a freighter only bir...Jump to post

How long before we see a Q500 from Bombardier? True 90-100pax prop with decent pitch? Seriously.Jump to post
wow. the penalty was allot stiffer than what I imagined it would be. still educating myself on this topic. not going to express an opinion either way.Jump to post
If you are coming from the North... you don't even have to cross the TappenZee. Many in the Upstate Region don't mind the long drive... You have lots of good feeder interstates... I-81, I-90, I-84, I-87, I-88. I guess the idea is it is quite accessible and you basically avoid all of the NYC traffic....Jump to post
So Embraer wants to build a Me Too Q400 competitor? Yawn.
I'd find addressing the worldwide aging fleets of aircraft that seat between 30 - 60 to be more interesting.
Truthfully, I'd like to see someone do a new 19pax (max without a flight attendant) prop as well.
I suggest as a starting point you visit Wikipedia and build a table with all the basic/common specifications available. Then post that table as the basis for the discussion. It will keep the responses more accurate.Jump to post
I would hesitate in saying Embraer has expertise in turbo-props. The EMB-120 entered service in 1985. The last one came off the assembly line in 2001. The vast majority if not all people that worked on it are gone. A lot of new learning will be needed to pull off another turbo-prop. From about 2007...Jump to post

The MOM will be a carbon fibre A310. After watching a video explain how the 757 has changed the way airlines think. So many MOM discussions talk about a plane the size of the A310 or 757-300. Yet: 757-300 sales 55 A310 sales 255 Even if you include the 200 series planes in the 757 number, you are s...Jump to post
Customers are going to dig watching the unfolding wings through those large windows and then the rumble of those huge engines as the plane sets up for take-off. I think we will see some buzz about that. Don't know if that is enough of an experience differentiator for customers to really boost flight...Jump to post

It only seems that way because you can't make out the sharks, due to video quality.
It would seem if Scope doesn't change, that Bombardier becomes the default Regional supplier with an optimized 76 pax CRJ800. Honestly, I've fully expected that Bombardier would eventually launch CRJ600 (an upgrade to the 200 w/ more capacity that would share more with the 1000) and a CRJ800 (an upg...Jump to post
There are many pictures of this aircraft out on the net.... Outside only... Though honestly I am very curious to see if it has the 1+1 16pax shuttle config. What I find interesting is the fairing around the wingroot is so large compared to other ERJ-135s. Why is that? AIRCRAFT Brazil - Air Force Emb...Jump to post

Hawaiian 737 was a typo on my part.. I meant 767.... As someone mentioned earlier, I omitted the A332 as well. I wish I could go back and edit/correct the original posts, but I cannot.
Thanks for the info, I will correct the info in the document that I created as a basis for the original posts.
I think it's a stretch to say that the ones listed under the "Large Regionals" section in the OP are separate airlines. With the exception of Silver Airways, all of them operate under the regional banners for UA, AA, DL, or AS. Of those, all of them except for Air Wisconsin are owned in p...Jump to post

an airport between Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska would have perhaps been better than the two separate airports of Eppley (OMA-20 gates) and Lincoln (LNK-4 gates). the two cities are less than 50 miles apart. although omaha is greater in size, lincoln is the state capital. note: Lincoln's does double du...Jump to post
