Re: Rise of "Premium Leisure"? Hawaiian Airlines Gambles on Business Class Cabin

HA is a bit unique given its bread and butter is a huge leisure market, though with meaningful corporate demand as well. The problem is that business travel probably isn't going to revive to pre-pandemic levels. Companies have learned to do with out it, have saved a bundle on T&E, and it also ha...

Re: American Airlines to add logo to winglets

It looks strange and off balance, but it's the only thing AA can really put on a winglet these days. AA.com is kind of not relevant nowadays as everyone uses the internet. The stylized flag on the detail is too detailed and busy for the limited space on the winglet. The AA livery is actually pretty ...

Re: Analyzing The Airbus A380’s Premature End

The problem for the A380 from the start was that its developers made an astoundingly wrong calculation that VLA (very large aircraft) were the solution to booming demand at the time. They weren't. Except for a small subset of airports that had slot issues (LHR, principally). The majority of airlines...

Re: LEVEL expansion S22 from BCN to USA.

Surely DL would prefer less competition to more, but I don't think DL should fear running a 4-cabin widebody against an LCC packing 314 seats on a 332; DL loads 223.

The main issue is 4 engines vs 2. The 777 has more efficient, powerful engines that burn less fuel. The A340 program (-200/300 versions) began rolling off assembly lines just a few years before the 777-200 and the program provided better fuel consumption, range, and efficiency overall compared to tr...
