IINM, these are also the only 772LRs in the world that were delivered with provisions for the aux tanks, thus giving it its true "world's longest-ranged airliner" capabilities at 9,395nm. Every other airline took their 77Ls with only the standard center tank, and are thus "limited&quo...Jump to post

DE did pretty well filling up the planes last year. 84.4% load factor in Aug. 2018 and 78.9% full in Sept. 2018. Not sure what the yields were, but the loads were pretty good for the slow season.

It didn't happen because they said so and it didn't make any sense to them financially in the end. There's more to it than that; the USDOJ found it anti-competitive even with carve-outs.

ignoring prevailing winds, the A321XLR has the range to get there from most of Western Europe.

As of September 2018, the second AN-225 remains incomplete. It is thought to be around 70% completed , but additional funding is required.

SFO to Toyko in 5.5 hours. That's a bit underwhelming in terms of time savings versus the subsonic flights which are currently blocked around 9.5 hours.
