The are limited enough 200LRs. I believe it's the same exact engine as the 200F, many other shared parts. I imagine the ~60 LRs would be ideal part-outs to give the ~260 factory-built freighters a long, long life. Hard to envision a conversion program for them. Any of them would also make excellent ...Jump to post

But you'd think if they were headed to Japan and using a 135 out of Fairchild, that N. Seattle would be out of the way.

with 737 MAX losses they are facing, it is a good time to do so - they wouldn't be paying much anyway. It is worth noting, though, that Washington B&O is a revenue tax. The bills introduced Wednesday will remove the 40% B&O tax break for all aerospace companies beginning April 1. The legisl...Jump to post

So, all economy 777-200ER:
What's the pitch at 10 abreast all economy? Probably not too bad, since here you're not cramming the back to make the front palatial.
What's the seat count and pitch at 9-abreast all economy? Close to 400, right?
So what's better, the legroom or the shoulder space?
What's being argued here? What *should* happen? Fine, you've made your points about how different/evolutionary the 777X is. Now wait for the people who actually get to determine that to make their decisions known. Shouldn't really be that long now. I don't see the point of trying to prove that someo...Jump to post
Aircraft are becoming less about the air frame and more about the avionics, so you can significantly upgrade older aircraft if you dont need to change its role. And since the B-52, no one has made a really huge wing with a comparatively tiny fuselage... something that is still in demand, but not fo...Jump to post

I'd say civil.
It's interesting that when they converted the 737-300, they indicated that C-130 frames were expensive (new?) / unavailable. I'd say this shows what their preferences are.
It's supporting evidence-- not a correction. I just think it's important that we all remember these things, like you. My first reaction to the implication that no US forces are involved in this conflict was to google the Tongo Tongo incident. I knew it was Central Africa, at least, but the name and ...Jump to post

The 767 will be smaller and lighter than the A330. The proposed MOM was already not going to have container capability and the customers were going to be happy with that. They want a small twin aisle with a good range. The 767 is containerized, just using LD2s and not LD3s side by side. For existin...Jump to post
Yup, not that complicated, and yes, there are redundant test points, and you can parallelize this across 5 craft at low risk and get it knocked out in 4 months even as is. 2 devices can give you the throughput of 5 if the schedule allows higher utilization. Also, there's only one engine manufacture...Jump to post
With the pickle fork there is a reason, that the part is designed for the lifetime of the frame, it is not designed to be exchanged. I assume it will be an expensive repair.

While the explanation is BS, have they sunk as low as United for basic economy regarding rollaboards? Probably not yet.

This makes sense that it'll be Boeing. Boeing's headquarters is in Everett which is closer to the Vancouver Metro Area than Downtown Seattle.

Fact is Boeings initial response was arrogant and heartless. My family and I flew 2 flights on a WN Max between Lion Air and Ethiopian.
