Re: Chances of delta ordering airbus 321xlr

So one could think that delta May go xlr short term for transatlantic 757 replacement and 797 for 767 replacement?

Chances of delta ordering airbus 321xlr

It’s been long rumored that delta wants to be the launch customer of the 797. But what are the chances since they already operate a huge airbus fleet which will consist of 200 plus 321 and 321 neo aircraft that they order this aircraft? Is it the right choice for 757 tatl routes from Boston nyc and ...

Delta 321neo routes

Delta will receive their first 321 neo in the first quarter of 2020. The only thing we know that delta has publicly stated is that these airplanes will fly from lax and sea to Hawaii. What else will these airplanes do? I have no facts to support this but I feel like this aircraft will end up being t...

Re: Reuters: Airbus pencils in orders for new A321XLR jet.

Nope. I don't think they are interested in a Long range narrowbody, or they would have ordered atlest the LR when they ordered the NEO. DL currently has 100 A321neo on order. I'd be very surprised if they weren't able to convert at least some to LR/XLR. Way too early to say definitively one way or ...

Bos-sea? Currently a 737-800. That would add 37 seats and reduced fuel burn

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

The 737 is too old of an air frame to graft a huge engine onto. It makes the aircraft unstable in flight. It is an unsafe design and must be withdrawn from service. Boeing clearly cannot be trusted to tell the truth. I do not speculate on crashes, I think it’s rediculous people are even speculating...

Even if the elevator was jammed, the aircraft could still have elevator compression from such a high speed dive hence it starting to gradually nose up prior to impact. I agree.
