Re: IAG sign LOI for 200 B737 Max

Wow, well this came as a shock. The likely price reductions probably gave IAG incentive to place this LOI. This order gives me more reason to believe that IAG have their eyes/plan set on a big European aviation shake up. Personally, I think that Vueling will be merged with LEVEL and potentially BA ...

Re: Airbus a330-900 460 seats

Another exit was rumoured I believe for the A330neo.

Also 194 seats on the A320neo is also above current limit by only 5. It's very possible they will re-certify for higher number or another exit, like the high capacity MAX 8 will have.

Interesting to see which way they go.
