737-8-200 was the marketing name for the aircraft from the very beginning. I think the original press release for the Ryanair order from years ago had 737-8-200 on the aircraft.

Interesting the occurrences of the number 17: Flight 17 On July 17 Aircraft had its first flight exactly 17 years prior (July 17, 1997) The 2 MH 777 accidents have had some really odd occurrences. The l/n number of the 9M-MRO(MH370) was 404. Ever heard of the “Error 404 not found” error? Really cra...Jump to post
The competition is a single aisle design, which has a much more favourable aisle to seat ratio than a 7 abreast. And as you can not shrink the aisles for practical purposes, you must reduce the seat width to reduce the width penalty of your 2 aisle design. We will never again see a new design that ...Jump to post
I think that something that could be done is to have electric tugs that pull the planes short of the runway amd the engines are turned on only 5 minutes before CTOT. this could be useful especially at those airport that have long tale off backups That’s just going to create congestion, having tugs ...Jump to post

5581305 Apparently not. Jetblue just took delivery of their first A321 NEO without the 2L/R door. That's a Flex, which doesn't have one. More space for seats. Which will become the standard configuration for the A321 very soon. The NX configuration is a better use of space and is similar to the -90...Jump to post
Boeing is a company in crisis. I hate to say it but their survival as a leading commercial aircraft manufacturer is in jeopardy. The drip drip of bad news is killing them. I was saying this for 20 years. While I have often defended Boeing here, truth is the company has been so poorly managed for th...Jump to post
what a sad thing! In your opinion. Personally quite happy to see the inefficient go to the wayside, and make room for the advanced. Yes by the way it's my opinion. But what is the footprint that building a new plane takes? Agree a more modern plane will use less fuel to do the same job. But the who...Jump to post
Am I wrong in thinking this is actually not all that uncommon? Not saying it's ok, just that it happens more often than it makes its way to a.net. You’re probably not wrong, Boeing is under a massive microscope so any little screw up is going to get it’s own article. Kicking someone while their dow...Jump to post
Remember that you're comparing DL's B764 with UA's B763ER seat count here. The B764 is 21' longer, so when UA refurbishes their fleet, then their seat count could be higher than DL's. Nope. 240 is the correct UAL 767-400 seat count. The 767-300 seats a max of 214 at United. My bad! I was thinking t...Jump to post
That is that for Bombardier in commercial aviation. Sad to see.Jump to post
Because they never needed them, same goes for PMUA, PMCO, PMDL and AA going forward. didn’t AA, DL, and PMCO all fly the A300? DL got A310s from PanAm in the early 90s and they had them for less than 5 years. I also believe CO Inherited some A300s too, they didn’t last for very long though. AA had ...Jump to post

Wasn’t an overrun, aircraft ended up off to the left of the runway. There is even passenger video.

As IAG won't receiv their MAXes for 3 years, the assumption for them is that the problems will be fixed by then, and thousands will be flying safely Alternatively, if the MAX is still a dog, then they will presumably just cancel the order anyway. so the max is grounded another 3 years?

What Long Haul routes is Turkmenistan even doing? As far as I know and correct me if I am wrong, they don't even fly to the US. Its mostly Asia and Europe for them and recently I heard they were even having problems with the EU Regulations. So wouldn't B789 or B78J be a sensible choice for them, ev...Jump to post
British Airways, or IAG for that matter, will not place the MAX's anywhere at this point in time. All they've done is launch a carefully orchestrated life-line to Boeing, bought and paid for by the suits in Chicago , as part of their plan to regain some goodwill and turn the media attention away fr...Jump to post

With the MASSIVE range of the B737Max7 (7100km full payload), this can fly low volume routes in EMEA as far as DXB, LOS, ACC, GYD, IKA, etc. Basically BA now has a narrow-body for routes that previously required a wide-body.

Some people are clearly emotionally distraught that the MAX got a big order. At the end of the day it’s an excellent aircraft made by a company who has been in the business for a long time.
