RE: Titan Airways 767 Operating For Easyjet

With Titan moving to all Airbus, eg 319,320,321,330, every crew can fly every aircraft. It is effectively two fleets. Cabin crew can be rated on both, and the pilots just do dual training on both. It will give much more flexibility, and have a reduced crew number. Currently they have separate crews ...

RE: Boeing Reveals Challenging 757 Replacement Rqmt

The market trend is for aircraft the size of the A321/B737-900. Both companies have downfalls, Airbus the fuel capacity, and Boeing the landing gear length, which restricts the rotation angle for take off. I think Airbus has missed the boat with the neo. They should have launched a 321 stretch, not ...

If you compare both types, they are very close. It's only when you add the 321 and the proposed 321LR that Airbus takes an advantage. This is purely because of fleet commanality. Both pilots, cabin crew and engineers can operate under one type. Going forward, Airbus only has to modify the wing with ...
