What will happen in the future is that no parties will campaign with any policies, they’ll just run negative campaigns and then once they get in will be the only time we find out what they will actually do. Over the last decade or so it's been really sad to see this US style of politics slowly make...Jump to post

Are A and B doing enough R&D on a replacement for the turbofan, using clean electric propulsion?

One would have thought that Xi Jinping's visit to Nice with Macron last month would have helped materialize this new route. Indeed.

Probably turn the one A380 gate into two separate gates. The A380 has a wingspan of 262ft while an A320 is only 117ft. Less than half the wingspan of the A380. So converting one into two should work just fine. BNE already does this, and I'm sure that others do as well. At BNE gates 75 and 76 can ta...Jump to post

Err, when did you last fly Brussels Airlines short-haul? It has been a cheap, no-frills airline for years! Absolutely not a premium airline. They charge premium prices though.

That's actually a real shame. I'm fully supportive of such projects in theory; if the right wing wants their vanity projects, they're welcome to fund them themselves.
Of course it is no coincidence that fools are easily parted with their money.

Regarding the 777-200ER replacement RFP, my guess is six A350-900s and four (initially) A350-1000s. I’d have thought in those ULH routes there would be a reasonable Premium demand, and need for a few less Y seats. The CEO said they could remove 30Y seats from the 789, I’d say remove 45 and add a few...Jump to post
I've said for a while that if Air New Zealand's RFP goes in favour of the A350 in a couple of weeks time, the Qantas RFP will almost certainly go to the 777-9x.

Whilst there is a short term capacity reduction as the airline pushes to retire the inefficient 747s, you need to remember that Qantas started flying MEL-SFO in September last year. With that in mind, the overall capacity level once this change takes place will actually be fairly similar to pre-Sept...Jump to post

Yet another 737 runway overrun. Why do these incidents always seem to be on that aircraft? Higher approach speeds vs other aircraft?

Actually, it is an extremely well designed plane. It has competed on even terms with a design that is twenty years newer. That is no easy feat.
