Re: Airbus considering significant A320 rate reduction cut

This is a prudent move by Airbus. It will also allow them to catch up on the backlog of delayed frames as well. IIRC.... the A321 NEOS that AA ordered were close to 6 months behind their original delivery skeds, and that was before Hurricane Corona hit There is also several Airbus customers that se...

Re: Airbus considering significant A320 rate reduction cut

I'm not surprised - I think that was my guess from a few weeks ago. A320 at about 30-35 per month and MAX at about 10-20 assuming RTS. Even at those rates I'm guessing they will be building some this year that won't be delivered until 2021 as travel returns. It will be airline specific. In my opini...

Re: Airbus considering significant A320 rate reduction cut

In the next couple of weeks means maybe in three weeks. I guess they want to see first if growth in Corona cases continues exponential (widespread immunity soon) or flattens (long term fear). I don't think they should cut production. Which airline wouldn't prefer A320 over B737Max, assuming it retu...

My most suggestion is - KL 737 MAX with AF A320neo. AF HOP could transfer the E190 to KL while A220 is better to replace the E-Jets for them. HV, KL will then fly Boeing 737 only for SH fleet. Do you thing this is a good idea or not? I see most people has a similar suggestion like this.
