Re: Any leaks, ideas, or otherwise: What is Airbus' next clean-sheet aircraft?

The A330 will be phased out as it is already lacking orders. So, I thinkl the line-up will be as follows... I can't say I agree with this, and feel people get far too caught up in the whole A330neo is dead rhetoric. Has it been as successful as the 787? No. Have airlines overall regarded it as an i...

But 45 mins to deplane 130+ pax, clean and fuel the aircraft and then emplane that many and depart, se...

Re: Virgin Atlantic Future Fleet Matrix for LHR, LGW, and MAN

The 350s are the result of the 380 cancellation, no? So now that they're on board alongside the 330NEO, it does seem like the 787s are a little superfluous. None of their routes are really that needy of 787 distances. Perhaps over time we'll see a drawdown of 787 ops, though the likes of NZ makes s...
