Re: Future of the A319NEO in Airbus portfolio

It’s also possible that their contract with CFM lists the A319neo and if they were to prematurely retire it, they owe concessions to CFM. As discussed, most airlines in the World don’t have the size/scale to economically have different operational programs for A223 and A320/321. Literally nothing on...

Re: United Fleet, Network, and Discussion Thread - Q3 2021

United is a banked-hub network carrier. You can’t start replacing 4x/day 50-seater destinations with 3x/day 76-seater without addressing flows/capacities through the hub banks. For example, if you upgraded 20 routes from 50-seaters to 76 seaters, you’ve now fed up to 520 additional pax into that ban...

The nonER 900’s are not ideal for Florida due to frequent pop up thunderstorms and the common need for hold or diversion fuel. This extra fuel quickly pushes it over its relatively light MLW.
