Preumaby people are taking the announced addition of temporary workers as an indication that MAXs will soon fly. There have to be over 200 new MAXs out there just waiting to be delivered. I expect a $30-$50 jump in share price the day the FAA says that MAX grounding has been lifted. Yes, but that i...Jump to post
K-Man, I agree with most of this … but perhaps A220-300/500 could replace A319/A320? That lets you push the A320.5 to the new wing and other improvements that you have for A321/A322. Simplify it to a 3 model family. Yeah, I'm modifying my own comments here.... existing A320 NEO has 4000 orders.... ...Jump to post
I think Airbus is in the lead in the NB segment. Sales, backlogs, forecasts andupgrade potential of current types seem to confirm that. Even if you ignore the current MAX drama. It seems there is no need to develop a new NB soon: - A220 can take care of the smaller less efficient A318, A319, 737-7 ...Jump to post
i heard from a pilot friend that airbus was going to enter the business aviation sector... all kidding aside.... for Airbus, the future for the next decade or more is stretches of existing models: a mild A220 stretch (A220-500)..

I might be in the minority, but once Airbus gets a handle on costs and ramps production on the A220 series, I see them launching a 150pax, 32" pitch, 3 flight attendant, A220-500 specifically for the likes of WN.

When they actually need more aircraft in that size, there will likely be a competitor to the A220 launched by Boeing Brasil Commercial.

I wonder if the Bigstripe (Deluxe dba JetSuiteX) will apply for / be asssigned a new IATA ? Or will they keep XE (imagine they'll keep it)? Their ICAO is already JSX.
The other company, Redstripe (Superior dba JetSuite) has an ICAO code of RSP, and never applied for an IATA.
hmmm, little bit of a let down. I actually prefer the older tail... and the full spelling of JetSuiteX below the cockpit windows. Hardly seemed necessary to change their logo. Well, at least the racing stripe stayed! Maybe they just wanted more differentiation between JetSuite (charter) and JetSuite...Jump to post

We do know that there is no new alternative for at least 5 - 8 years. More importantly, there seems to be no new engine that could leapfrog the PW1000 within the next decade (in this thrust range).

The plug would seem the only viable option. Mating e.g. the CRJ-900 front section to the CRJ-700 would increase overall length around 2.5 meters.
