Re: Diversion of IB A350 causes RR shares to drop

So, given https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ECMYX and ETOPS flight rules, why was BOS deemed "nearest adequate airport" rather than YHZ or elsewhere? It would have sucked if the 2nd engine had an "auto roll back issue" over the Gulf of Maine. I hadn't seen anything to say that...

Re: Diversion of IB A350 causes RR shares to drop

Regardless of this being an engine (RR) issue continuing from the 787 engines or an auto roll back issue, both Airbus and RR are on the hook here. They both have to investigate and provide root cause analysis to the proper authorities (FAA/EASA). Some of these reports will become public record weth...

Re: Diversion of IB A350 causes RR shares to drop

As per Bloomberg: "U.K. engine maker’s initial analysis of Iberia A350 in-flight turbine shutdown was due to an issue with the engine’s control system; this is now being addressed, Rolls-Royce says in emailed statement. - Inspections showed no damage to engine core, confirms no connection betw...

Re: Air Transat Airbus A310 problems?

Engineering issues are not reported to the regulator. There are processes internally for dealing with these. If everyone was reporting engineering problems the regulator would probably have a meltdown. What is the urge to hang on to these pieces of trash. May I ask why you refer to A310's as "...

Re: Airbus A100, Fliegerfaust. Airbus might buy & upgrade CRJ line.

There was some talk a few years ago about upgrading the 200, new engines, wings, etc. Still must be a need for a 50 seat RJ for small markets. As for as comfort, I'll take a 200 over an E-145, now that's a cramped cabin. I find the 145 vastly superior to the -200. The windows are huge and actually ...

Re: Should Airbus focus on A220 product increase instead of A320 mid-term?

If the A220-500 is to ever exist, it will be because of one airline that will lobby to the end to make it happen, Delta. Delta would order 150+ A220-500 that seat exactly 150 passengers to replace their entire 737-800 and A320 fleets. However, I am not sure how many other airlines out there would g...
