Re: Business Risk for Boeing: The A321XLR

I think people are forgetting one thing about the NMA, and it is the answer of Airbus to it. Airbus does not have any new aircraft development as of now (XLR and project sunrise are probably not using all of airbus engineering capabilities). This means that Airbus probably has teams working on reply...

Credibility of Aero sources

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but here it is. What sources are considered more credible/reliable in the aviation world? In addition to generalist press agencies, we hear a lot about flightglobal.com, aircurrent, Leeham, Seattle news and so on... I just wanted to have some kind of background...

It can't be legally below production cost, that's called dumping and is forbidden in the US for non US companies.
As for these production costs, I don't think anyone outside of Airbus actually knows...

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1408483&hilit=Delta+filings&start=200

Estimated at around 91m for the A330Neo, while any higher price would mean a much reduced price on their A350

Re: When will Arkia resume service to JRS?

Jerusalem will not see passenger service again, IMO. 20 min high-speed rail will be coming sooner than widespread international recognition. There's really no need for a separate airport with a connection to TLV that's about the same length as the Heathrow Express is to London. WIth less than a mil...

Re: A220 gets 2.3T MTOW increase

Just go to the Embraer website, E2-190, then max landing weight minus max payload - - > 35 tons That's as good an estimation as any. If it is not precise, it is at least quite close. Do the same for the E2-195 you will get about 38 tons. Airbus provides less info but using what is available, you get...

Re: Leeham News: Mitsubishi appears to be well positioned to take over the RJ market

Thank you for the info, so basically the non-LR is already a fit for the 70-seater scope (69 is close enough) but they need to find where to put 2 additional rows for getting to 76? Would it be enough to play with the pitch? Like reducing it from 31" to 29". On the link you have they give ...

Re: Leeham News: Mitsubishi appears to be well positioned to take over the RJ market

Please forgive me for the stupid question but could there be just be a paper derate to reduce the MTOW on paper and make the MRJ70 scope compliant? What impact would a 2000lb MTOW derate have on the performance? Is it something possible or am I luring myself?

Re: The U.S. has threatened to expel Turkey from the F-35

The whole thing kinda confuses me. I'd think the US would love to have a partner with an S-400 they could get intelligence from. Which is also why I can't understand Russia selling one to a western (sort of) ally. Let's say that they have enough Intel from the Israelis. They fly over Syria all the ...

Re: Reuters: Rolls Royce withdraws bid for Boeing NMA project

Do we know (even approximately) how much the engine would cost to develop and what kind of engine price is to be expected? Why I am asking is because part of the exclusivity issue for the engines seems to be related to the size of the market, meaning the approximate market size could be deduced from...

Re: Airports with interconnected baggage systems?

Interestingly, if you buy a combined train/plan ticket with AF, you will check in your bags at the train station's AF counter, get into your seat on the train, then receive your bag at yous final destination. For example, if you buy a SXB-CDG-JFK, you will check in your bags in Strasbourg, get on th...

Re: Wide body freighter operation within Europe

Thank you all for the replies! I’m a little bit surprised about cargoes that are not allowed to be trucked. Once they have arrived at their destination airport they most likely will continue their journey by car or truck, anyway. Or am I mistaken? I understand that forwarders need to carry the frei...
