I've always been shocked at how tiny their operation is and it seems they have finally had enough. Can't blame them.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? Wow! Gesende...Jump to post

Sharp looking aircraft!
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

How often are LOIs converted to firm orders ? Is there another step ( LOI -> MOU for example ) before it is converted to a firm order ? Do you remember recently a big LOI converted to a firm order ?

Who saw that coming? https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/6466784/IAG-signs-letter-of-intent-for-200-B737-8-B737-10 The return of 737 to British Airways. That's pretty cool. Interestingly, there's no mention of "MAX" anywhere. The name is poisoned. I'm wondering what kind of prici...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. Some of you clearly must have thought Boeing and the MAX seas simply going to rollover and die. It will most d...Jump to post
Wow what an order for the MAX, real nice win for Boeing there.Jump to post
So it looks like Cebu Pacific A330neo will feature 460 seats and their new A320neos will have 194 seats.... Seat pitch is going to be brutal.Jump to post

Doesn’t meet scope for US airlines.
I thought it was only the e2-190 and 195 that didn't meet scope?

A330was envisioned in the late 80s not 70s. Sure its based off of the A300 but it’s a vastly different aircraft. The 767 is simply an older smaller and simply less efficient aircraft compared to the A330 and that’s why it’s disappeared everywhere in the world except TATL routes.Jump to post
Not that surprising, they can’t the MAX currently and the 777X hasn’t flown yet. Do they let the general public into the static commercial exhibits from Airbus and Boeing during the "Open Days"? If so, then they are probably the main reason the OEMs bring them. If not, then it's just to h...Jump to post

Because it would have no design elements related to the 767 so why call it a 767? It’s a clean sheet aircraft.

RR simplifies engines to reduce development cost, reduce development time, and reduce overhaul costs. These simplified engines burn more fuel. E.g., GENx vs. T1000.
