Re: Virgin Atlantic Future Fleet Matrix for LHR, LGW, and MAN

The 350s are the result of the 380 cancellation, no? So now that they're on board alongside the 330NEO, it does seem like the 787s are a little superfluous. None of their routes are really that needy of 787 distances. Perhaps over time we'll see a drawdown of 787 ops, though the likes of NZ makes si...

Re: AF signs MOU for 60 A220 plus 30 options and 30 purchase rights, A380's to be retired by 2022

I am not sure that such a stretch is way down in Airbus' list. The way I see it, they are establishing a customer base for when the A320 replacement will become necessary. I seriously doubt that the A320 will be getting major improvements. That means that the next A plane in this category will be a...

AF CEO, Anne Rigail, said in an interview to France Info that AF would be interested in a stretched A220. I think this is probably the biggest sleeper issue with the 220 with AF - do they stretch to an A320-sized replacement? An interesting conundrum from our perspective as observers - I'm sure mos...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - April 2019

Air NZ A321-271NX ZK-NNE (msn 8799) D-AVZF on 29 March 2019. https://www.flickr.com/mathiasdueber/32581483207/ PA515 The undercarriage looks oddly unsubstantial enough. A shame NZ didn't get the regular door configuration - this one makes it look like it's going to tip backwards. Keen to try it out...
