Would the later re-instate the orders, once everything went back to normal?
I don't know if they'd switch to Airbus, since their wide-bodied aircraft are Rolls-Royce exclusive or majority.
Having many events to be cancelled from the onset of COVID-19 (most of which had the next schedule set in 2021), people came up with virtual events to alleviate frustration and loneliness sustained from the pandemic. What are your thoughts on such virtual events? Is it any better or worse than live ...Jump to post
I think new orders for 777x and/or the 777F would likely come from EVA Air, Air France-KLM, Korean Air, Air Canada, as means of replacing such older fleet. AC's 77W can carry up to 450 passengers, with a 777x, it would permit more freight operations while flying 450 passengers, having the 777X to ge...Jump to post
What might the fate of DL's 777 be? I'm guessing that the ER variants would likely be scrapped and parted out, while the LR variants would be converted into freighters as 777BCF (potential customers who haven't flown the 777F would include, but not limited to: UPS, Air Transport International, ABX A...Jump to post
Most of them are relatively 2 decades old, which could be a good time to retire the 753 and the 764 (Both of whom operated by DL and UA, but replacement is their discretion). It's potential replacement could be the A330-900neo, 787-9, 787-8, 797 (if developed), or A321neo.Jump to post
Would the coronavirus impact the 737 MAX's re-entry into service and/or the 787 production line? What about Airbus as well? Would Boeing and Airbus have to suspend their deliveries to mitigate the coronavirus spread?Jump to post
some live updates related to the coronavirus. Reference only (may be subject to change)
Would that men there could be a possible merger between AS and AA? I know that shortly after CO joined Star Alliance, it merged with UA. Let’s hope not. I’m an Alaska Mileage Plan flier and in general I like Alaska. After my connection fiasco in Charlotte on American last March, I vowed to never fl...Jump to post

It turns out that Delta and American are switching Latin American carriers with each other. Before Delta's investment on LATAM, they had stakes with GOL, while AA partnered with LATAM. It became the opposite when DL purchased 20% of LATAM (with the latter exiting Oneworld).Jump to post
I think Airbus isn't too worried that an A220-500 will cannibalize the A320neo. A220-500 will be shorter range and have less takeoff performance. Much like how the A220-300 did to the A319neo? I'm pretty sure that if range isn't a big factor, which Air France flies the A320 family on domestic and E...Jump to post
Something to be said for commonality. They obviously have done some financial modeling and feel even if a larger 737NG is a mismatch on some routes, the overall benefit is greater going single fleet than keeping a 100-seater around. Commonality is one thing. Another thing is that the E190s wouldn't...Jump to post
Probably the E190s are no longer economically viable to many major airlines. AA would phase out the E190s by 2020, probably replacing them with A321NEO and 737s. JetBlue is doing so with the A220-300 as a replacement aircraft for the E190 (effectively becoming an all-Airbus fleet). Air Canada too wi...Jump to post
The future replacement for the medium-haul aircraft, would that be the A320neo or A321neo?
The A220-500 could be a good replacement aircraft for the A320-200ceo, and the A321neo could replace the remaining A321ceo.
Moreover, which aircraft would replace the A330-200? The A330neo?
DenverTed wrote:C 919 or MC-21?
Would that mean they'd look for wide-bodied aircraft? If so, then the A330 and the 787 would best fit them. If not, they'd probably go with the A321neo (good for transcontinental and Hawaii routes). The 797 may be a possibility for their aircraft type other than the 737, but depends on the fruition ...Jump to post
If all means, yes. My guess is that they'll use a 777-9 or the A350-900, but they have to use which aircraft is better suited for high altitude operations (whether it's high density altitude in the summer days or snow in the winter days)Jump to post
Ok, that tells me that DL is competing with WN and AS in terms of SJC flights, right? I've taken aviation courses at San Jose State University, and some students have visited SJC as part of field trips or internships, some even hold their jobs right at SJC.Jump to post
I wouldn't exactly call an A380 a success, because of fewer orders/customers. Emirates is the only airline that took large quantity of the A380, but after exchanging for smaller Airbus orders, the A380 program will call it quits in 2021. The 747-8, on the other hand, may continue their production un...Jump to post
I can buy 2 same year model cars but have different engines but they are both the same model range. Different engines have different parameters (fuel economy vs power, and are subject to tradeoffs). Let's say you want to drive a Hyundai Sonata, for example, they have a basic 2.4L normal aspirated e...Jump to post
The A320NEO is basically a newer version of the A320, which is true because it gets a newer engine for efficiency. However, a 737-800 being the older version of the MAX is untrue, as it would've scared airlines into grounding the NG's as well. The fact is, the older 737s are NOT installed with MCAS,...Jump to post
An increasing number of airlines are ordering A321s because of increased traffic and limited airport slots. EVA Air in Taiwan also operates A321s and airlines in neighbouring countries like Vietnam, South Korea and Hong Kong are similarly equipped. All Nippon Airways have their A321neos in hand, fl...Jump to post
most of us know CI's past history with their aircrafts crashing or having issues and at the moment, they're trying to clean up their reputation. Having gone with the MAX series, they would have tempted fate of something occurring or losing whatever public trust they're regaining at the moment. CI's...Jump to post
Of the 25 new A321neos, would some of them be allocated to their LCC subsidiary Tigerair Taiwan? It may be a strong possibility that they're focusing more towards Airbus aircraft. Mandarin Airlines' E190 fleet may be replaced by the A220-300 aircraft, given that JetBlue and Air Canada are doing that...Jump to post
I think Europe may have a higher taxation than that of America. That may have played a factor on how the airline shutdown rate is higher in Europe, compared to that of America. Even though Europe may have a busy air traffic, taxation may have affected the profits to the point that the airlines can n...Jump to post

No, communism kills people. Look how many people were killed by Joseph Stalin of Soviet Russia, Mao Zedong of People's Republic of China, and the Kim Dynasty of North Korea.

Wrong! NG production finishes on May 3rd The production usually finishes when there's no more unfilled orders. You can't necessarily or precisely predict when the production would be finished with no outstanding orders. The 747-8, for example, would've ended production no later than 2020, but thank...Jump to post
I'd only assume that it's done by a 737-800NG. Would they switch to a 737 MAX once the groundings have been lifted (that being said, finalize the cause of ET302 crash and fix the MCAS)?Jump to post
Does that even help recover either Airbus and Boeing from their biggest headaches currently? We know that Airbus suffered their biggest headache for this year after the A380 program will end with Emirates reducing their A380 orders in favor of smaller ones, costing Airbus financial losses sustained ...Jump to post
Well, that's part of the A380 demise; BA only like ordered 12 of the A380s before settling with smaller jets to replace the 747s.Jump to post
Emirates have stated that they'd retire the A380s 12 years after each unit was delivered. With that in mind, Emirates would retire their last A380 in 2033 (predicted). At least the 747s would still be flying when all A380s are retired from service (although the former would continue as a freighter,...Jump to post

I understand that decorating bags with anime stuff can be part of anyone's hobby (can be even customizable).

It's likely that they're acting inclusive towards fat passengers, due to the fact that they were judged by normally-weighted passengers. However, that movement wouldn't do good because larger passengers take more than a seat, as well as decreasing fuel economy from heavier weight. Likewise, if pilot...Jump to post

She did "force" the bag through (I saw it). For the bag to fit, it has to go in without the bag rubbing the sides that prompted the passenger to force her bag through. I guess my "Cessna" pilot's bag would fit through, as long as I don't overpack it.Jump to post
