Re: Airbus A330 Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

I agree with the statement that most likely the last passenger A330-200 has already been delivered. There are 12 A330MRTT frames left to be build. But AFAIK the A330-200 isn't suitable for MRTT conversion, only tale boom is possible. AFAIK a more likely MRTT conversion is A340-200/-300 into A330MRT...

Re: 777 Retirement/Scrapping Thread - 2019

How come some airlines are retiring the 777-200ER so early on? It’s relatively efficient with good range and capacity? Is it simply because planes like the A350 and 787 are cheaper to operate? One factor may be the high cost of Honeywell AIMS1 support, which is now negotiated on a one to one basis....

Why are UA´s 777-300ER designated as 777-322ERs?

Because United’s customer code with Boeing is 22 so that the reason why UA’s 777-300ERs are 777-322ER and for 787’s there are no codes assigned to them and the 737 with 24 code are the ones ordered by Continental Airlines
