Re: Airbus to launch longer range A321 and not chase market share

Then they'll complain when they get gouged on jet prices. Which sounds great in theory, but in the 22yrs since mainline aircraft manufacturing has been a de facto duopoly; what you're describing has NOT been reflected in reality at all. At least not for major carriers. What example s can you give o...

Re: Georgia lawmaker lobs legislation for state takeover of Atlanta airport

[*] The monopoly is the reason it is the largest airport in the world. You take that away and the airport will lose traffic to better placed alternatives. I mean who in their right mind want to fly for 2-3 hours extra just because Delta push all their traffic through ATL. If the monopoly goes away y...

Re: Pratt & Whitney's Geared Turbofan Has A Strong Backlog

Time will tell, but I have the feeling enough cash will be flowing for them to scale the product...to MOM and beyond. I have the hunch that PW and CFM still have MOM bids in the running. My personal opinion is offering both PW and CFM on the MOM aircraft would be the smartest move for Boeing and Ai...

Re: Pratt & Whitney's Geared Turbofan Has A Strong Backlog

"At Pratt, total GTF production continued to ramp up successfully, with nearly doubled GTF production," Hayes says. UTC's P&W unit delivered 779 large commercial aircraft engines in 2018, up 45% from 537 engines in 2017, the company says. Fourth quarter deliveries did indeed nearly do...

Re: How Aircraft Leasing Has Changed The Airline Industry

Leasors treat a 12 year old aircraft lease today as 'end of life'. By 2020-2021, we will see 10 year leases on the books. I think you're confusing the length of the first lease for the aircraft with the end of life. After that 10-12 year first lease (which I've seen as short as 6yrs and as long as ...

Re: Bombardier launch new 50 seater

Which precisely goes to my point about scope clauses hurting the industry and the flying public by causing airlines to make choices they otherwise wouldn't, where the only group that benefits is the mainline pilots (and to a point made earlier, the follow-on effect pilot scope has on mainline cabin...
