Re: Boeing Wing Issue?

Certainly the last thing that Boeing needs right now. But this isn't the first time that quality control issues at Boeing have come to light. Long before the max crisis, I seem to recall some very serious concerns being raised by line workers at Renton, which suggested some supposedly 'precision par...

Hopefully this is a signal of the end of Norwegian is near. Selling a product below cost is not a winning market strategy. Sorry but why would you hope for such an outcome? And selling below cost is a common tactic in long term growth strategy - true it's a risky one and can be seen as anti-competi...

Re: Airbus Is in Talks With British Airways on More A380s

So what happens to the older A380's? Do they just get scrapped? That couldn't possibly be good for residual values for other airlines' A380's. Is Airbus going to develop a P2F program to convert A380's that are coming off lease? A few early birds will probably be dismantled for parts. The rest... o...

Re: EK521 TRV-DXB (777-300 A6-EMW) crash landing in DXB
