Enter Air orders up to 4 additional 737 MAX aircraft

Also interesting is they referred to the MAX 8 as just “737-8”

This is surprising. I guess they got a really good deal out of Boeing.

Re: Updated: BA fleet parking, will retire 747 fleet

When these five 744's get to leave LHR, they should each fly a couple of circuits and simultaneously do a few touch and goes off 27L and 27R. The BOAC 744 flying from Cardiff could join, straight down the middle over the tower waving her wings. The goodwill and PR would more than make up for the co...

Re: Future demand for widebodies

I don't think the pessimism is misplaced, while I don't think it will be a disaster, it's a perfectly valid question to ask how big a market there really is for it, as smaller aircraft are more flexible. The A350 and 787 will eat/have eaten a lot of market that otherwise may have gone to the 777X. ...

Re: Future demand for widebodies

Agreed. I find the pessimism regarding the 779 as humorous and fairly ridiculous. The plane is still in flight testing. :). History has shown some aircraft exceed market expectations and go on to sell very well (77W, A330), and some are underwhelming (A340, MD-11). The 779 meets a necessary market ...

New York to London - New Subsonic Flight Time Record

As result of Storm Ciara, BA112 took approximately 4 hours and 56 minutes (according to Flightradar24) which breaks the previous record held by Norwegian 787-9 which took 5 hours and 13 minutes roughly two years ago. Also VS4 was close too (flight time of 4 hours and 58 minutes).

Re: Doubt BAW 787-10 and a350-1000 strategy

The more interesting question, and one I don't think BA has even considered yet, is what will replace the 772 at LGW when the need arises in 7-10 years time. The A35K is likely too large, the 787-9 too small and the 787-10 lacking the range (and perhaps performance) for the likes of SJO, MRU, CPT o...

Think B78K as a replacement for B777-200 and A35K as a replacement as B777-300ER and B744. 2 different market and capacity. The 777-300ERs aren’t being replaced yet. The current 12 are being reconfigured (8F/76J/40W/130Y) to operate 747 Hi-J routes with a further 4 on order. According to another fo...

Hey everyone, was checking out Flightradar24 and saw QF9 (departed Perth on the 30th) took 17 hours and 59 minutes. Is this the longest recorded flight and would the flight crew have anticipated this extra flight time?

Should Boeing drop the 777X knowing that all orders are shrinked? Will Boeing make some profit with less and less orders? There’s no need to. The aircraft has 300+ orders which may not be as high as Boeing wants, but is good enough till the aircraft enters service. I personally expect the 777X to r...

Just read the PR link. If worded correctly, I find it hard to believe Boeing would lose 54 777X orders just for 30 787-9 Dreamliners. Hopefully more information comes out soon regarding the orders
