Re: Boeing Considers Closing 787 Production in WA

Interesting. Thanks for the info. I guess it wouldn't be as big of an interruption as with what happened with the MAX.

Re: Boeing Considers Closing 787 Production in WA

[quote="Revelation"]A far simpler question: what is the relevance of accounting methodology to the decision to only keep one 787 FAL? We have plenty of statements in Leeham and elsewhere saying 787 will never pay back all the deferred costs even before the COVID crisis. So, 787 may have to...

Re: Sir Tim Clark "A380 is OVER"

The real whales - the 747s - are still alive as the cargo versions are busy, in part due to the virus. I've never referred to the A380 as a whale - if forced into using a nickname, I'd call it Uncle Fester. B747 is the Queen of the Sky, do you mind? A380 is the Whale of the Sky. 747 is the Hunchbac...

Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2020

Terminal A opened about 15 years ago is starting to look a little drab... :duck: maybe some new seats and carpet? i assume you mean the main Terminal and not the Satellite as that's had work done to it in the last few months at least on the A18-A22 side once WN left? If so, I would agree with you, ...

Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

Which brings me back to the Eagle Terminal, there are 4 slots there striped D1 to D4, they were obviously used in the past and must have had fueling access, you can refuel Fed Ex at their farthest slot for the Cargo piece, so I bet the folks at Massport could figure out how to extend that option to...

Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

A is a long way from home but I seem to remember there being gates with direct stair access. Not sure of the number though. Covered air stairs are nice, but all service equipment have wind limits, and aside from catering trucks, stairs are usually one of the lower limits. At any rate, the biggest p...

Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

I do see "D01-D06" painted on the ground by the Earhart Terminal ;) This threw me, as my last flight to SFO two weeks ago departed from "C5" (which I knew as E3 in the past) and I'm like... "What gate is that? Wait a minute..." Pilots aren't the only one being confused....

So have they settled on a design for the Terminal E expansion? https://www.massport.com/capitalprogramsattachments/L338-/L338-%20Exhibit%20A.pdf Here's a good overview of the plans. It's not too surprising that AF will be getting a new lounge. Phase 1 will have space for 4 new airline clubs. Thanks...

Re: Boston aviation - 2018

Lately the ride-share waiting lot has caused lots of traffic at the airport. The current lot is not large enough or well organized enough to handle the amount of traffic it has been getting. The tunnels are also getting worse and worse. But that is harder to fix. Something to allow the Silver line ...

Re: What can Boeing do to get an edge over Airbus?

Arion, really? The 737 MAX has 4,000 orders from 92 customers. 777X has 326 orders. 777 as a whole has 1.526 orders. 747-8/8F has 122 since 2005. 747-all has 1,536 orders. Now what did you want to say isn't selling? It seems to be that Boeing is just in a position as a benchmark for airbus to impro...

Re: Anything new on Rolls-Royce RB3011?

I’m not entirely sure what you are asking but Rolls Royce do not power the 737 family or the A320 family. In terms of Civil Aviation they stick to wide bodies only eg A330/A350/A380/B787. They have stated before they have no intention of supplying narrow bodies as they have to compete with GE and P...

Anything new on Rolls-Royce RB3011?

Hello, I have searched online, but have not found any news on the RB3011. There are a few webpages that don't seem too recent. Does anyone know of some open rotor engine development status and their applications on the 737 and A320? I saw this site, but it is in french. https://www.aerobuzz.fr/indus...

At the back of the Delta hangar, they are currently covering up the 744 and other plane images with one of an A359 I think.

Re: Boston Aviation - Part 12

I thought it was a little amusing that on the airport signs "Arrivals" and "Departures" were changed to "Arriving Aircraft" and "Departing Aircraft." Maybe so no one will get confused which "crafts" are there. :spin:
