First 787-10 for Vietnam Airlines on the flightline at CHS https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D-PYe9fW4AE64Zj?format=jpg&name=large https://twitter.com/cassidysvacay/status/1144996761041342464?s=21 Have VN released any configuration info for the 78J?

Intersting piece of information from the LA TImes article linked above: Federal Aviation Administration records show that of the 105 people known to have stowed away on flights around the world over the last 67 years, only 25 lived through the ordeal, a survival rate of 23.8%. I would have thought ...Jump to post
I'm not sure if this has been posted before but I found this on Saudia's website about the 78J (includes link to pdf seat map) https://www.saudia.com/experience/about-us/our-fleet/boeing-b787-9 Choose the 787-10 tab. 24J and 333Y Edit: I've still not been able to find any configuration information ...Jump to post

Flying is more efficient than ever. Both Boeing and Airbus are making huge strides in the efficiency department. The green lobby has chosen the wrong target entirely. You are completely missing the point. As long as air traffic growth outpaces the fuel efficiency gains in flight, the overall CO2 co...Jump to post

Yeah, because airlines are in the business of spending billions of dollars for votes of confidence
Pretty sure they haven't spent a single dime on this LOI yet.
Absolutely astonished by this IAG order. Absolitely out of nowhere, seemingly. I don't see these going to BA but I could absolutely see EI replacing their A320, 752 and A321 fleet with 738/A321XLR. Also Level and Vuelling. Struggling to see IB going 737 for the narrowbody fleet but stranger things ...Jump to post
China Airlines signed LoI for up to 6 777Fs: https://www.twitter.com/DjsAviation/status/1141258993827864577 This order was already announced by China Airlines on 8 May. It's for 3 firm + 3 options. https://www.china-airlines.com/us/en/discover/news/press-release/20190508-1 Cheers! :wave: Glad to se...Jump to post
Guys these threads have become too long. Can’t we just have announcements on these threads and individual threads to discuss each order please?Jump to post
Seems to be a strong rumor circulating that KQ will order/ lease up to 25 E190 E2’s.Jump to post
I’m glad the -10 is picking up a few orders here and there. A very nice looking aircraft. My count is 9 on the number of current/ future operators.
Any news on a name change for the E jets?Jump to post
Time for DL (+ AF/KLM?) to create a plan to reorganize KQ with support from the Kenyan government. Africa is an important market for them all. There is a tremendous opportunity for both Kenya the country and KQ the airline. Kenya needs a stable and profitable national carrier, but first the bribery...Jump to post
Looks like he bites the bullet.

The fact that this is legal shows what a "free" economy really is. Boeing is probably the most predatory company in the Business. Frankly at this point no matter how much I love their heritage or aircraft I want them to fail as a corporation. Ok and Airbuses take over of the CS program wa...Jump to post
And as predicted, the route is a loss maker for KQ. Per CEO: Kenya Airways CEO Sebastian Mikosz has admitted that nonstop flights to the United States have failed to meet the expected results. Although the direct flights between Nairobi and New York were part of the airline's recovery strategy, Mik...Jump to post

Nice looking aircraft It is unusual to see a new version of an aircraft with significantly less thrust at the same MGTOW The 777-300ER is like a cage fighter, compact with a lot of power. The 777-9 is like a ballerina, elegant and graceful with a minimum of obvious effort. The 200LR is the real cag...Jump to post

When can we expect body join and roll out?Jump to post
Just noticed that from q3 2019 Turkish will replace the 777-300ER to Mumbai and New Delhi to A330’s and 787’s. Does this mean Kq are taking them back?

Yeah, I see A320neo and A321neo in the mix for them. Even A321XLR for regional growth. As for the long-haul fleet, B787-8 is a perfect aircraft for them. They didn't have as much traffic as other African competitors. Besides, B787-9 and B787-10 is in the corner. I think you ll find KQ has far more ...Jump to post
Could just be to create more leverage for the negotiations with Boeing. I guess Boeing has to prepare for arguments such as "We really like the MAX, but you know, the public perception is that it is a death trap so we face a commercial risk buying your hardware. What is your best offer, Boeing...Jump to post
