Boeing pushed it with the NSA, then Airbus kicked their butts with the A320NEO . . Boeing needs to get their act together.

I think Scott is the first one who dares to say Boeing is in a deadlock with the NMA.

Will Boeing experience the same MAX delays as Airbus did with the NEO?
Airbus is slowly getting on track with the pile-up of gliders decreasing every week.
I'm of a mind that the A220's should not be used when comparing numbers between Boeing and Airbus. At present we are roughly comparing like with like both manufacturers make similar aircraft but the A220 will skew these figures and make a nonsense of the comparison as Boeing does not make such an a...Jump to post
If I remember correctly, I'm not sure, but wasn't there a large airshow last month??? Seriously, Airbus did announce more firm orders at the show than this single one. I guess it was just all show at the show. There is a difference between firm orders and the MOIs, LOIs and options everybody gets s...Jump to post

The minimum is not the safest route. Safety is a culture. That culture doesn't exist at Norwegian. They have no experience to draw upon. May I ask you what experience with you have with NAS that concludes these opinions (NAS doesn't have a safety culture because they have no experience to draw upon)?Jump to post

On a separate note has the B737-10 made significant inroads on the A321 NEO's market share yet? I think it has done quite well - better than the Max 9. It would appear that the current Max 9 backlog has been significantly reduced because many airlines have converted from Max 9 to Max 10. I suspect ...Jump to post

The Gulf carrier wants to change its order for 50 A320neo family jets, which includes A319, A320 and A321 versions, to take only the larger A321neos, which would likely be powered by CFM engines.

Why doesn't Boeing simply do a 757 and 767 MAX? New engines, new cockpit common with 787, factory wingtip devices and other aerodynamic updates, and some targeted weight reduction. Simple. The business case is not there. Boeing doesn't make planes to compete with Airbus. Boeing manufacture planes t...Jump to post

IF Boeing wanted to claim the Title of #1 in sales for 2016, they could have by counting the Iran deal. 668+80 puts them at 748 which gives them the "Top Spot".
