At least for now, any A223s to be operated on the N-register are planned to be built there. Production is supposed to start June/July 2020 (!) and ramp to a capacity of 4/month. Am I correct in understanding "N-register" is the N in N114DU number for Delta and it signifies a USA based air...Jump to post
DL has an open RFP at SBN for a SBN-JFK flight. I can see when DL get's enough of the A220's in service it would free up some of the CRJ7's and 9's where they can finally offer the flight. With Project Propel working and enplanements up 27% this is a future possibility. Propel is a joke. Delta has ...Jump to post

I will say same thing when one of the Nth Embraers erm Boeings takes off with similar sticker.
Doesn't this also mean that the A220 is much more economic than previously thought and for shorter hops like those done by Swiss Air or Air Baltic it is burning less fuel and needs to onload less fuel than previously proscribed which still further compounds the improved fuel economy.

I got my private pilots license about 8 months ago and motion sickness was a big obstacle I had to overcome (if that’s what you’re referring to). Ever since I was a kid it was something I had a hard time with. However, it got significantly better as I went through my training, to the point that on t...Jump to post
I trust this site, it is usually very accurate. KR/Airboe No it isn't. Airbus has 890 orders for the A350, that site says 939. I have no idea where they get that number from. Also Airbus delivered 263 frames (of which 260 flew away) and they only go as high as 256. I think they’re referring to the ...Jump to post
Is Emirates stock traded publically anywhere? It would be a huge violation of laws if CEO is commenting on results before declaring them. Equivalent to Elon Musk's "Taking Tesla Private at 420 tweet". (Which led to his removal as CEO of Tesla by SEC) Emirates is government owned, not publ...Jump to post
MAX7 has a maximum capacity of 172 (at high density, 29 inches of seat pitch) A220-100 has a maximum capacity of 135 (also high density) A220-300 is 160 max Are they currently looking at the A220 in general, or just one??? Personally, I would think that they would go for the 100, because it has muc...Jump to post
Interesting comment coming from someone who thinks MSY-CDG would work because of the connection to France. You mean like the flights between Montreal and Tunis and Algeria and DTW-AMM ? Not all ethnic traffic is equal. Is there a huge demand from those Iraqi communities for travel to Iraq? Don’t as...Jump to post

The older regional jets are traditional. The CRJ 1000 has a FBW rudder. The E-jet, A220, MRJ and the SSJ100 are fully FBW.
I never really understood why they made the A359ULR if they knew that only one airline would ever order it. I mean sure it's a relatively inexpensive variant and so the development costs weren't so much, but I would have expected that either they made a higher GW version available earlier (which pr...Jump to post
Have there been any new frames? If not then why the holdup? Here's the current status of frames with activity in the month of March.

This guy is unbelievable how he over steps his powers. Take note of this people once again he's telling you who he is.

No, there are differences between the NEO and CEO. Training is needed for all. How is this different from the MAX? It seems pilots were just thrown on that type without further training. Of course, this isn’t correct at all. There is training between the NG and the MAX. This is A.net so a lot of in...Jump to post
These are training flights for pilots. Why do they need to train pilots on the neo? Shouldn’t their existing A320 pilots be able to fly the neo without additional training?

I recall Boeing saying that they will try to make the 777-8/9 cabin a few inches wider by making the insulation thinner. Were they actually able to do that, or is it still the same 16" seats in 3-4-3 economy? Given current gen 777 cabin noise levels, especially compared to A330/A340/A350/A380/...Jump to post

When Boeing designates a 744 aircraft as “-451” or “-422” what does it mean? I believe Boeing also uses similar designations for other aircraft. Does Airbus use a similar naming convention?
The GE versions with high MTOW are just more flexible all round. They can lift extra cargo or fuel, and the fuel burn on the GEs is much better. Delta presumably also wanted to ensure their fleet is not too slanted towards Rolls Royce, just as they stated when they were taking the 757. Having multi...Jump to post
MSN 290 (EY#1) has rolled out of FAL (unfortunately white tail) And so the rumours are true. Now will they cancel the entirety of the order? Or will they keep some? An A350 leaving the FAL with a white tail does not mean the order is cancelled. A few others have left the FAL with white tails and ha...Jump to post
Agree here...they played catchup both times and got smacked for it. When boeing leads they make huge scores, when they follow they have less success. Their product offerings have Airbus on the ropes in widebody and the 380 program's albatross makes it possible BA could release a better small aircra...Jump to post
Their single A330 is in for a heavy check so they’re leasing one from Etihad temporarily.
