For those interested in watching some close up photos of the damage to the aircraft here is a video i found .
Reg and airline logo is covered up . According to video the airplane awaits to be salvaged
Does anybody else noticed that TAP Portugal now has 10 A339neo on order instead of 12 in the previous Airbus O&D sheet ? Anyone care to clarify why those weren't viewed as cancellations ? Maybe they decided to own 2 frames less and lease them perhaps ? http://www.aircraft.airbus.com/market/order...Jump to post
If this happens imho the a330neo is finished..... People need to understand that the A330neo is the 753/764 of today's time . Very capable frame but launched at a very bad time . Personal opinion is that it will sell eventually (MRTT) but as a commercial airliner it won't surpass the 300 frame mark...Jump to post

Any word on QF's first 789? Seems like it's been in paint for couple weeks now?

I can't believe that Airbus didn't release any pictures after roll-out. It's still an important type of aircraft for them, so I would expect some more PR stuff... anyhow, what do I know...

When do the two upcoming 777s begin construction? Both are to be leased so in all likelihood are already built and just undergoing cabin outfitting, since delivery of the first will be this December.

Not sure where you heard this, but it is completely false on both "Mid August" and "two every 15 days". I'm sure WN will post plenty of media when it is time for the MAX to physically delivery, but the dates have not been made public any anyone that does know should not be discu...Jump to post
I spoke to a WN captain the other day. They will begin MAX service the day after the last -300 is withdrawn. Something about the ratings and cockpits.
