I would love to know what the real story is, whether it is engines (PW) or airframe (BBD) that are unable to ramp up production adequately. Unfortunately, the aviation press seems to think that they are the marketing arm of the various producers, instead of merely reporting what is going on (or wha...Jump to post

One wonders if Bombardier can handle a large order such as what Air Asia contemplates. For instance, Bombardier forecast 30-35 Cseries jets to be delivered in 2017. Only 9 have been delivered so far this year. Unless it finds a way to significantly ramp up its production, I do not think they can ha...Jump to post

I can not wait to see if it's going to be confirmed. To replace the B737-800WL would be fine! But to replace the 9 A310s the ideal will be 10 B787-8 or B787-9? Looks like it is confirmed: the "spokesperson" who is being quoted in the article is Gilles Ringwald - VP Commercial. B787-8 or 9...Jump to post

I wonder how the Pratt fan blade situation is coming along. It's been pretty quiet on that front for a while. P&W also expects to resolve a parts shortage problem that crimped geared turbofan engine deliveries to Airbus and Bombardier last year. Of about 1,200 parts inside the engine, P&W i...Jump to post
