Re: A330-300 first revenue flight, 28 years ago today.

An interesting development by Airbus in hopes of sparking A330NEO sales. Apparently they are proposing a 200t (versus 251t) MTOW version of the A338 as a regional variant for Asian carriers, and perhaps, Delta. I'm guessing the max range would be similar to the (204t) B764, which is 5,600+/- nm, ins...

that would be quite surprising to me, both would represent a new fleet for them, but the A220 seems to be better suited than the 737M7, too heavy for what it is.

Re: 2021 NCAA Football Thread

Keep an eye out on U of Memphis, who will be flying out to the Hawai'i Bowl that will be played on Christmas Eve. I wonder if they will spring for a non-stop charter for the MEM-HNL flight? This epic game matches up the 6-6 Memphis Tigers against the 6-7 Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors. Hardcore ESPN "...

Re: Future jetBlue Long-Haul Destinations

When B6 moves into MCO's South Terminal I expect they will be looking to take advantage of the better customs facilities that new terminal will offer. Routes to South America, especially Brazil and Argentina might be considered. The XLR's should work well for those types of routes.
