Some airlines now blocking last rows on A320neos

https://simpleflying.com/a320neo-cabin-rows-blocked/

Apparently this is due to an airworthiness directive issued by EASA which now limits the aircraft’s center of gravity envelope. Thoughts on this, seeing as capacity is usually a major selling point?

Most people agree that reasonable accommodations need to be made for the disabled, but when you start allowing miniature horses on commercial flights, things have definitely gone haywire and become unreasonable. I'm sorry, but the fact that "emotional support" animals have only been a thi...

Not really. If a cop pulls a car over with illegal modifications and a bag of weed in the glove box, odds are if allowed, said cop would find a lot more wrong things with the car.

Does WN use the MAX between SAN and EWR? I have a trip planned the second weekend of October and am curious if it might be on the chopping block if the grounding continues further.

Re: Business Risk for Boeing: The A321XLR

mistake was made by choosing MAX instead of clean sheet. ^This x1000. I have always felt that the 797 should have been the clean-sheet replacement for the 737 (even if it would have been available a few years after the 320NEO), with the longest 797 model being the 757 replacement/321XLR competitor....

Boeing 737NEO? :lol:


Why not go with the same naming the 787s do? 737-8, 737-9, etc.? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Say you have an aircraft A that has 60 year old design and for example hydraulic controls and the amount of force to move the elevator is 20N. In fairness, the only thing on the 737 that is "60-years old" is the shape of the nose. Everything else has been changed/updated by now, has it not?
