This will be a nightmare for Boeing if they have to cut or stop production to next year. This could take the 737 Max costs into the same price range as development for a new NMA.
All to compete with the A320neo family? Very poor forward planning by Boeing.
They crashed a perfectly serviceable 777 in San Francisco, A visual approach on either runway in good weather is normally straight forward. This is more about Leadership and etsonal values. This Captain should be out of a job. The CSM on the other hand deserves a commendation fron this shambles of a...Jump to post
If this is true in anyway it's a real kick in the balls for BA. The 777X order for Emirates was the largest order on the books. This might also be a negotiating tactic. Clark has been known to play hardball with both BA and Airbus. He has a history of playing them off against each other to get the r...Jump to post
One the main problems Boeing has now is public perception. I believe there are also perception problems for the FAA while the work through and sort out the Boeing Max series problems. The Boeing "Big Hitters" at corporate in Chicago made a lot of poor decisions in the aftermath of the Lion...Jump to post
Personally I think it is a definite possibility. I think Boeing through a series of SNAFUs designed themselves into a corner from which there is no exit. Now, when I say never, I mean for a considerably long time, say, 2-3 years. I see it is possible that they will undertake a substantial redesign ...Jump to post
It's Boeing attempting to save money. If 737 Max simulator training is required, this is a Red Flag concerning Southwest Airlines. Boeing will have to pay/train all Southwest Pilot's at no cost to the airline. All Southwest Pilot's should be able to fly any 737 model without any simulator training. ...Jump to post
What a stunning development. Nostradamus himself wouldn't have seen this coming. They should take a closer look at the Polish government plane that went down. I'm sure there will be no surprises there, either. I am not quite so sure about the Polish Tu-134. I watched a Polish film about this two ye...Jump to post
None of them are s good as the A380. I have flown on all three aircraft. Emirates A388, Thai B789 and Cathay A359.Jump to post
...???! Yes, that would explain why they have ordered even more, wouldn't it? Oh wait .... They don't need more than 40 to use on profitable routes, they have 100 with more on order. Go figure. Sending an A380 on a 2hr 30min turn around (or) on a 14 hr ULH with whole sections blocked off is not a s...Jump to post
I have to agree with Thomas Cook. I was a frequent flyer for over 10 years with Emirates. I flew First, Business and Economy classes depending on the Oil Company I worked for. I flew on A330, all A 340 models. All the Boeing 777 models and the A380 with GE and RR engines. In economy even if they do ...Jump to post
Correct me if I am wrong here. Doe Airbus not manufacture aircraft in Mobile Alabama. That makes them an American manufacturing company. Why doesn't Boeing win contracts by building superior aircraft instead of closing down competitors in the Law courts of the USA. MRTT and Bombardier comes to mind.Jump to post
It's Dubai... They have a history of hiding aircraft problems. EK 521 an incident...Short memories here.Jump to post
From a purely aesthetic point of view, looks A Stretch Too Far. For me it depends on the angle. Would love to see it in person, but overall I still think it looks good. So much better than the A346. I have flown on Etihad A346 AUH-LHR return a long time ago. As Thai Airways would say the flight was...Jump to post
Badly worded by me sorry. I was talking about A350 MSN 88. Is the aircraft behind schedule or not?Jump to post
Seems to me like there is some heel dragging by Airbus concerning FF of the A350K.Jump to post
I have flown on every Emirates aircraft type in service A333,A343,A345,A388, 777, 777ER. The ckmfort and seating arrangements on the A380 are superior to anything other than maybe SQ First Class. Emirates have a fantastic product using the A380, may it continue for us distance flyers.Jump to post
Air Canada has everything to do with this dispute. The US has been subsidising or supporting Boeing for many years either via Washington State subsidies or US military govrrnment support. Your KC-46 is a dawg of a tanker well beaten in the US Air Force trials by the more modern A330 MRTT. Boeing has...Jump to post
You may see an A359 or A35K at the Dubai Airshow 2017. However it will not be a Qatar Airways aircraft. The two nations are hardly on speaking terms.Jump to post
What airline is the green fin all the way to the right of the picture ? Looks like A350. That would be an Eva Air A330. That is embarrassing. They must have figured out the perfect design of the rudder in the 1980's and never changed it ;) :lol: Eva Air, of course. :banghead: I have flown LHR - BKK...Jump to post
I am very surprised Boeing did not see this coming. There Legal team and executive decision makers have a lot to answer for concerning this screw up. The playground bully got a hiding from the smallest kid in class watched by the school prefect. It's Karma. Boeing have been getting away with this fo...Jump to post
Boeing will end up paying the most in the end. Because what goes around comes around. As many have said, they’ve pissed off Canada and Delta, and that’s a start. With the narrow body delta order coming soon, I wonder what will happen then... But, If Boeing finds this as an effective tool, and they ...Jump to post

Is the 772/ER rarer than the A380?Jump to post
Why would you decide to fly BA? Old aircraft like the 777-200 and the ER version on the route. And old terminal arrival in DXB.
Much nicer on the Emirates A380 with state of the art IFE.

Hong Kong Airlines will need to up there game. Particularly their Inflight service in Business and Economy class.
I have flown on both airlines out of Hong Kong, the Cathay service is far superior.
But again its always good have fair competition.
310,000-316000lb variant of the A359ULR would shake this game up. The A350 is already flying there are no Boeing 778/779 near ready for Flight or Testing yet. Airbus and Rolls Royce have a continous fleet improvement program. It's RR or nothing on the A350. GE on the other hand do not have the same ...Jump to post
I don't understand QRs move. They stopped delivery of four frames sighting quality issues. Now they're taking them and cancelling four future frames? Why. Just to punish Airbus. Have their requirements changed? From 80 to 76 frames? Either those frames are not up to quality they expect or they are ...Jump to post
I really enjoy the continuous "A350 will struggle on routes to Australia from LAX" comments from users basing them off a quote that was missing any form of context. For the longest time, Qantas was an all Boeing airline - for a long time it was an all 747 airline - and many Qantas people ...Jump to post
These are the two people who decide which aircraft Emirates and FlyDubai in operates and selects. Forget all your management teams VP's and Executive VP's and Chairmen. They get to manage however they don't get to make the really important decisions. That's down to the Dubai Royal family.Jump to post
PIC the Captain for the flight is no longer with Emirates so I have been told. The First Officer returned to QANTAS, I am not sure if he is still there or not. This accident could have been so much worse. A very well trained Cabin crew really makes a difference.Jump to post
I think this aeroplane could make Airbus a lot of money. If it does what it says in the Spec sheet and the price works for some of the smaller carriers in comparison to the B788. Things might work out.Jump to post
