Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

I wouldn't expect zeke to intentionally give false figures. Maybe the A350-900 figures includes seats and the A350-1000 doesn't. If they are correct then Airbus must have sprinkled some magic fairy dust on the A350-1000. I have both the manufacturers empty weight (MEW) and basic empty weight (BEW) ...

Re: UPDATED: AA drops ORD-PEK/PVG, reduces NRT

Sorry not to takeover the Chicago thread, but I believe Hainan does very well in BOS and had read an article somewhere although months back that BOS was their profitable station. I believe PVG from BOS also does well. How's that BOS is doing well compared to ORD? The reason I say is people who are ...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

Pretty much all of the high weight estimates are coming from Airbus fanboys. The 777LR to 300ER is a 10metre or 16% stretch adding 22T. The 3m stretch of the 777-9 should add only 7T. The wing should weigh the same as it is only fractionally bigger but it is carbon. So the empty weights should be. ...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

As one poster stated, Boeing is not stupid, nor is an elite world class airline like EK. The 779 will likely be more efficient on many missions versus the A35J. My speculation is the comparison will be similar to the 789 vs the A359. Both the A359 and the 789 are excellent aircraft that have sold i...

Re: LH CEO claims LH sells the most premium seats — is it true?

Given the respective fleet sizes, I find it hard to believe that LH would sell more premium than say, EK.. Simply due to the amount of large widebodies the latter has.

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

Idk how you interpreted that from OP's Post: The A350-1000 has lower total trip fuel, the CASK/CASM number will vary between airlines, and even within the same airline depending on the particular airframe configurations. When airlines quote their CASK/CASM numbers it is based upon their configurati...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

By this logic the most efficient plane in world is a single-seater. By this logic an F-28 is more efficient than an A350-1000. Nice try, the simple question was which is more efficient to carry one passenger, the A350-1000 or the 777-9. Idk how you interpreted that from OP's Post: So my questions a...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

Anybody pretending to have a solid grasp on (long-haul) fuel burn and CASM numbers for the two birds are lying. The A35K has not seen widespread commercial service except with QR (and even then it's primarily mid-haul) while the 779 is far off from even that.

Re: UA Domestic 777 Replacment

I don’t see the 764 as a great candidate for 77G replacement at United since they’ll max out at about 260-270 seats even in a “densified” configuration, leaving a ~100 seat delta versus the 777. There are some routes in the domestic system which call for that kind of capacity. Delta and Hawaiian 76...

Re: UA Domestic 777 Replacment

The domestic 777 is a CASM monster which can transport a lot of people at a low price. I hate being the bearer of bad news but this isn’t really true. In terms of fuel, a domestic config 772 burns almost exactly the same fuel as TWO 739’s burn in total. [checkmark] And the 772 does not carry quite ...

1 billion in revenues over the whole year is small potato for an airline that announced a top-line of nearly 11 billion last quarter, and even then, I find it hard to believe that the lion's share of that cargo revenue isn't going to be international, given the sizeable differential in cargo rates b...

The biggest Taiwanese ethnic market in Australia is BNE- the only port BR maintained after closing SYD/MEL/AKL. I find it hard to believe that TPE-SYD and TPE-MEL can't support 2/day and 1/day when HKG-SYD and HKG-MEL is running 7/day and (more than) 4/day respectively. Regardless of ethnic concent...

Re: Chinese carriers catching London fever: MU launches PVG-LGW, CA ramps up PEK-LHR frequency

If one has not spent a lot of time in China, then they are fairly clueless to the reality. There is an absolutely shocking amount of well off to rich/super rich people there. Alot of back and forth travel as mentioned above with kids at school overseas. England is still considered one of the prizes...

Re: Reduction of 787 deferred production cost slows.

It would not reduce liabilities, so the balance sum stays the same. It would boost the negative equity to somewhere near 25 billion USD, or somewhere near 28 billion if one includes the tooling and so on. I think you do not understand it. The money is spent and it was either coming out of the free ...

There is a distinction between sunk costs that have been charged to the Profit and Loss account and those that merely moved from the bank account (asset) to the Deferred Production Costs account (asset). These "sunk costs" were never charged (expensed via the profit and loss) in previous ...
