Re: Flyadeal cancels 737 max order

it is a bitter pill to swallow and even if Boeing gets to address the MAX issues, it will persist still to get confidence back both from operators, flight operations and the public. It will take a long time and will be haunted by its past each time there will be glitches. Close to saying - Boeing wi...

Re: Boeing 777X Testing Thread - 2019

i have this sense on the 777X that they are still have plans for a bigger engine in the future just like the 777 to the 77W given the main gear height and the nose gear swing allowance ---- just a speculation.

p.s. wandering why it is not selling well

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

PAL for the time being is too conservative from fleet expansion to network expansion - for some reason, they need to poke the executive who are seated at the board for the convenience more than what is needed to be done. Objectively opportunities abound for PAL but ..... they opt to miss the ride

Re: PAL outlines A350 strategy, to launch MNL-NYC

i think the changes which they say is minor will just be on the FONT, it will be slightly bigger as that layed out on the B77Ws of PAL since the font on the current airbuses in their fleet does not look proportionate to the size of the aircraft.
