Current engine technologies seem
to be pretty maxed out to me, at least judging by how complexity is basically making reliable operations largely a thing of the past.
So I don’t think we will se a new clean sheet from either of the two anytime soon.
The people testifying are highly respected career diplomats and war veterans. / Highly respected career diplomats, that's an oxymoron at this stage.

Republicans are clearly winning on the facts, anyone who follows the hearings can't come to a different conclusion. Unfortunately many people don't follow the hearings and only read media accounts of them, which are (unsurprisingly) so far off the truth many times that you can only come to the concl...Jump to post

The most important output the income statement is all that matters.

QF served only Coconut water and kombucha. No caffeinated soft drinks or alcohol were served. Interesting.
Perhaps a combo of both? Frankly, ordering the Max at this point is close to breach of fiduciary duty when talking about a public company. That plane is history and its public perception will never recover from Boeing's gross incompetence in handling this stuff. The Qantas management so far appears...Jump to post

Again: The E195-E2 is not the main model of the family If that's true it only proves my point even more. The E195 is clearly the member of the family with the, by far, highest sales potential. If Embraer had not designed this as the main model in the family and taken all the compromises to the smal...Jump to post
The E2 is just not as good an aircraft. Very limited improvements over the last generation in almost every respect. The only way Boeing/Embraer will be able to sell them will be through pricing.

Business and First are massively different. Last time I flew First on EK it was miles ahead of J in comfort, space and every other way. J seemed uncomfortable in comparison.

Not to mention Nancy P doesn’t need to hold a vote to have Committee Chairs issue subpoenas and carry out an inquiry, thanks to Republicans of yore out to get Clinton, and Republican John Boehner changing the rules.

The entire Boeing board is disgraced because they allowed the culture that led to the Max disaster to take hold and fester - if they didn’t even actively encourage it. They are not worth their money and need out. Boeing needs an activist investor to refurbish the weak leadership.Jump to post

Oh, Bedminster is in New Jersey, and Washington National is in Virginia. Why would Trump want to host a 2020 G-7 Summit in Florida?

The emoluments clause has zero bearing on that G7 thing. The G7 summit contribution is payable by all participant nations regardless of where the summit takes place.

With all the ultra long range large business jets coming online (like the G650 and the Global 7500), the older jets in that category that don't have a range even close to that of the new ones become rather unattractive.

98% average load sounds like terrible yield management. They have left plenty of money on the table. No it's not, price/demand isn't a straight line as demand is quite elastic in aviation.
