Re: Boeing 737-10, updates, orders, developments.

Originally I had thought the new 737-10 landing gear would be stretched permanently, when on the ground. Probably all kinds of changed loads would have created additional complications, weight & development time/costs. E.g. higher bending moments during crosswind landings.. More practically tha...

Boeing actually had to force DL to take additional 737-900ER's, so.....not as sterile as you think.


If DL signed a contract with Put Options in it then they were not forced into anything, they chose those terms and it is very likely that the terms were extremely favorable to DL.

Re: AS launches SEA-PIT

I suspect the city is funding this one to meet Amazon's demand for a non stop flight to SEA for any HQ2 city candidates. If Pittsburgh doesn't get HQ2 don't be shocked if this route folds when the subsidies do.

Re: Norwegian reports strong passenger growth and high load factors in August

They tend to make money 3 out of 4 quarters due to seasonality. A.net has been on a bender to fan the flames that Norwegian is on the verge of liquidation (probably because the US3 and unions hate them).

Re: DAL becoming all-E175 for AS in November

Then I’d fill it with kids from the local Boys and Girls Club and give free rides taxiing around the airport, charging a penny each so there’s record of money changing hands, and do it a few times a day with 2.5hr turn times because hey, old plane. You might be joking, but seriously, if the gates a...
