LAX-HNL was mentioned in the press release as a possible route but I don’t see that as a possibility. These birds will probably only do LHR runs from JFK and MIA. Just my opinion.

They don't need 20 of them for those routes, so they must have other routes in mind.

Re: Mar-A-Lago raided by FBI.

Haven't seen many comments from the Trump supporters on this board. If any of them are reading, I'd like to ask if Trump is proven to have documents at Mar-A-Lago that he shouldn't, if he convicted in NY for the charges he's facing there, if GA convicts him of trying to tamper with the election resu...

At what point do Republicans face the fact that Trump is a criminal and stop coming to his defense? I mean, they actually had to face reality when it was clear Nixon was a crook, you'd think that they'd wake up and smell the coffee instead of being blindly loyal to this shyster.

Re: China Airlines 330CEO Replacement - 330NEO vs 787

It could come down to timing - how soon do they want to start the replacement process? With the 787 deliveries delayed so long and a backlog to clear, I'd think they could get 330NEO's faster. If they are not in a particular hurry, then 787's might be the way to go

Clark's comment about Boeing needing to have the 777X is spot on. They pretty much can't kill the program and be left with the 787-10 as their largest offering, not to mention a successor to the 777-LRF. He is, however, howling at the moon about the OEMs needing something larger than the 350-1000 or...
