GK mention before possibly placing an order of 750 aircraft mixed between MAX7 and MAX8 for the 700NG replacement. Now with everyone but WN bowing out of the MAX7 Maybe WN has leverage get a lower price point to place a big order to keep the Line alive. Flyguy 500 737-700s up for replacement. SW se...Jump to post
I recall Boeing saying that they will try to make the 777-8/9 cabin a few inches wider by making the insulation thinner. Were they actually able to do that, or is it still the same 16" seats in 3-4-3 economy? What airline has 16” seats in a 777? Seat guru is showing 17” seats in a UA 10 ab 777...Jump to post
It’s life threatening cold. The folks on the ramp can’t safely work these flights. There will be more valves that don’t operate, seals that won’t seal, lavs frozen, water lines frozen on the airplanes. Just saw all Amtrak trains to Chicago are canceled. Do you deem that excessive? Go over to Traino...Jump to post

Nothing but your anti Boeing bias says they weren't the active one, either. We know it was in the United MAX differences bulletin.

It kind of proves that Boeing did tell the airlines about it. If the other airlines didn’t feel the need to pass it along to their pilots... Nothing says Boeing was the active part. It could as well have been a surprise find by that airlines tech savy contact. From there Boeing was then asked about...Jump to post
If the MCAS was so darn critical, don't you think Boeing should have highlighted it as such? Not everything is critical to fly an aircraft; some things are (different speeds, different critical systems). MCAS appears to be one of them. Who’s to say they didn’t highlight it to the operators. Boeing,...Jump to post
And obviously, Boeing did a great job communicating since everyone knew about it :roll: Again, I said and repeated ad nauseum that Boeing did not communicate that new feature to everybody; doesn't mean that no one was aware of it, means some were not aware of it. It has been said by at least 2 US p...Jump to post
It doesn't matter. According to some on here, since UA pilots were trained, Boeing is all clear; despite what WN and AA (at least) pilots say... I never said that. What I said, since reading comprehension clearly is not a strong suit of yours, is that the MCAS addition wasn't silent, because UA kne...Jump to post

THAT is VERY well explained. I always knew that a300-a340 had the same fuselage but didn't realize the model designation aspect. Thank you for this.

The point is that few airlines have a need for the capacity of the A380 on most of their routes. If you need the capacity, one A380 will move the same number of passengers for a lower cost than two 787-9 and you can live with a lower load factor on the A380 before going into red on each flight. I p...Jump to post
It is you who’s missing the bigger picture. Adding a couple of seats on 18 aircraft is not much when you compare it to 80+. It’s simple math my friend... Although I'm not a fan of UA's plan to go with 3-4-3 on our 777s when you put it this way I can understand how 20 additional seat per frame multi...Jump to post

This feels like a déjà vu. Perhaps Boeing can discount the 737 MAX 7 at UA to prevent a CSeries order, like they did in 2017.

The 737-10 will have more cargo volume than the A321 when both have the same fuel capacity. If cargo is the driver, it can’t be ignored that more cargo fits in the 737-10 than an A321 with an aux fuel tank. :) I don’t think there is much point having an A vs B discussion here.

Isn't that literally what the 737 is except change 30 years to 50 years?
We've heard some FA perspectives. Now from the pilot's perspective, a very strong majority are happy to hear the A321 beat the 73MAX. In fact it's quite jubilant on pilot social media. It's just a better office in the bus compared to a 737. The cockpit of the 737 has hardly changed, the systems ove...Jump to post

Do you think the Boeing engineers are so incompetent that this design is that dangerous? Let's see...

In fact that is not correct. Boeing is very much in the running for an upcoming narrow body order. Delta will make their decision based on economics and performance only. It won’t be based on perceived “sour tastes”. It will be a business decision, not an emotional decision. Some could say that avo...Jump to post

A320NEO and CS500 are two very different cases. In terms of backlog, fleet commonality, cargo AKH capability, payload range, engine choice.
