Re: Leeham: 14 new airplanes and derivatives see EIS through 2027. ??

How about the new IL-96-400M? The plane Russia (strangely) wants to start building in 2 or 3 years.

Re: A much needed debate on carry on luggage.

Carry on baggage wouldn't be such a problem in evacuations if the safety demonstration included a line about leaving all objects behind. Some airlines do this, but not all of them and it's something that's easy to do that could partly remedy this phenomenon. Of course people like to ignore instructi...

Re: Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) posts record month!

I would say that if anyone is going to fly to JAX from LAX, it's either AA or DL. DL may have more frequent flyers in the area because of its geographic proximity to ATL, but AA is bigger at both airports (source: https://www.flightsfrom.com/JAX , you are free to question its reliability).

Re: First Il-96-400 in final production

Unless those new engines are competitively fuel efficient, and the aircraft itself boasts unique performance characteristics, most companies will look elsewhere. My hope is that t...

No I never think about this because the trend in aviation today is moving in the right direction ecologically.

Re: New airline, two new destinations for SBA

Southwest is the most likely candidate. I think they're still the largest carrier in California and they might be interested in adding a new California destination if they plan on keeping that title.

LAS is my only guess as to one of the destinations.

We should be celebrating the fact that these planes lasted as long as they did. It's a testament to th...
