Wow, this goes very fast this year. In the past we usually had a list of press conferences by both OEM's. Can we establish something like this again? Or doesn't it work like this any longer? The A321XLR is going to a pretty compelling option for airlines. More space for baggage / cargo than the LR ...

the new planes and unique position will work themselves to create an edge for TP. the only problem is the LIS airport, but somehow it's also an advantage as the lcc cannot get more slots.

Anyways, 789 vs A359 isn’t the same as A35K vs 778. Even though A359 is heavier than 789, A359 has a lower span loading and wing loadOing. A359 is only slightly heavier while its wings are considerably longer and bigger. That’s why A359 has a lower induced drag than 789. 789 generates less parasiti...

Re: Boeing NMA planning - Will Airbus just sitting on their hands?

What Airbus needs is a slightly smaller / more efficient A330 that sits better between the A321 and A350. The gap between the 737 and 787, however, is much, much bigger so Boeing needs a plane that sits in the sweet spot between the A330 and A321 for maximum commercial potential. It makes no sense ...
