Re: How do airlines decide on their engine supplier?

Engine selection is economic. It can be perceived economy. Fuel burn, maintenance (e.g., spare part prices), and as you noted performance for an environment. For the A320CEO, the CFM56 has lower maintenance costs, but higher fuel burn. Now, on the A321, the maintenance advantage goes away but the V...

Re: A340-600 Wing

Huh? From yesterday's DFW-DXB on a 77W: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAE ... B/tracklog And that is a route ~100 mi longer than JFK-JNB with an aircraft than can seat ~50 more than South African's A346s (I'm assuming EK uses the 3 class 77W, I don't know if they have any seat blocked). Let m...

Re: EK211 diverted to YYZ

No need to bring back the A345 (my favorite starship, BTW). They will soon upgrade the flight to a new shiny A380. With the HGW version in 3 class, I see no more schedule reliability problems. Good for the passengers, more comfort in all classes and punctuality. There are two dozen 575t MTOW A380's...

Re: EK211 diverted to YYZ

During the summer months, with temps above 38-39C, the -300ER becomes MTOW restricted out of DXB. Even on the longer 30L/12R. No problem getting in the air with two engines, but they of course have to assume a engine failure at V1. Leaving only 50% thrust remaining for a safe climb out. Hence the ai...
