Re: 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2018

Work has been dominating my life but I was able to get this shot a few days ago during sunset. This is a pretty detailed look at 9V-SCA. I don't think it's exposed right for the database so I'll post it here for you guys to enjoy. Delivery will happen at night unfortunately. Pretty disappointed abo...

Re: Boeing 777X - Updated Information And Developments

I still think that the -9X will bring range/payload reduction compared to the -300ER. Even with a full pax and fuel payload the -300er will still have room/weight to spare. The -9X won't. The higher pax+paylaod count+ 50,000 lbs heavier base OEW will no doubt eat into the range... question is by how...

Re: Airbus A330neo Production And Delivery Thread

At 251t, that MTOW is super close to that of the 787-9. Now it hangs on how much more/less efficient the A330Neos are than the 787, and how this impacts range. I'm surprised the A330 airframe is still hanging on

Re: Official A330 Production/Flight Testing

I know this one sounds noobish, but what does the 1/2/3 means in A330-xx1/2/3 means? I know the middle 0,2,4 are engine codes, but what about the last digit? I read somewhere this denotes gross weight, is this true?

If so, the why EVA is still taking -302 deliveries instead of -303s? Just asking

Re: Malaysia Airlines mulls sale to another airline

A purchase by QR seemed unlikely now given the current crisis that's been drastically cutting QR's little remaining profit. An QR purchase of MH would be impossible without massive interventions by the Government of the State of Qatar itself, which would attract international attention to the alread...

Re: Airlines interested in Boeing MOM concept.

@seahawk, because then it would just be a waste of money. If Boeing had gone through the whole hog designing a new wing, engine, etc., why not just design a new fuselage? The 767's fuselage have always been terribly optimised. It's too heavy, old, and big for a 2-3-2, too tight for a 2-4-2, and uses...

Re: Airlines interested in Boeing MOM concept.

A single aisle with a stretch to as long as 753 and a wing that'll do 4000nm with ifs own volume (no ACTs). There will be a slightly shorter version A321 length that will go further. The wing will be carbon and look sexy and long and the fuselage may or may not be. The engines will have gears and t...

Re: Airlines interested in Boeing MOM concept.

The closest ideal MoM currently available is probably the A321Neo - and while it'd do transcon (US and Australia) just fine, it would struggle on 3000Nm+ routes, like many transatlantical and AUS routes from PER/BNE to MNL/HKG/CGK/KUL etc (although GA does fly a B738 from CGK-PER). Ideally Airbus sh...

Re: Will UA fly to CGK/KUL?

You won't need to wait for long - GA just applied for opening a route between CGK and LAX with a stopover in NRT - and presumably GA will codeshare with DL in the US (since both are Skyteam). It's likely that they would start operating the route before 2020, flying thrice (or five times) weekly. The...

Re: Airlines interested in Boeing MOM concept.

I don't understand why Boeing was strived to develop the 737-10 when they could've re-engined the 757 and stretch it a bit more. Why they retired the 757 in 2004 is beyond me. It's a proven airframe with massive popularity and a very capable one at that. And perhaps too capable - even Boeing designe...
