Well while they discuss the rest of the fleet, first rebranded Silk Air 737NG is out of the paint shop.

...The T 1000 for the 787 has been a financial disaster... While the worst of that is over (we hope), that does not mean that the T 1000 will "for sure" break even in the future and generate profits. Very interesting thought. Especially with the production rate of widebodies being slashed...Jump to post

This may be strange to say this for a company, but i can't help to feel sad that such a great airline, with a long history, falls like this. My heart goes for all the people working in this industry.

Knowing DL's form for oportunistic purchasing, I wonder if the recently ordered 10 A350s, arising from their LATAM deal, may arrive sooner rather than later. Airbus have other airlines demanding deferred delivery, thus freeing up near term slots for any airline with available cash. There is a rumor...Jump to post
I'd prefer to see them adding some more P2P flights out of places like BDL/PVD/BUF/RSW to solidify their ff base in these areas. For example, can you see what adding LAX, LAS and London to BDL would do to their ff base in the Conn/Westchester area? That's a very wealthy area. While I agree with you...Jump to post

My question is where is Alaska going to go when BA closes up at T7 ? I'm guessing after today's announcement, Alaska will be moving to T8.

US-built A220 and A320 to China are indeed an elegant solution. Especially now, when US sanctions against A220 from Canada are off the table.

Has anyone noticed that (according to flightaware) one of AC's MAX 8's flew from Marana to Windsor, ON today. Seems odd unless there's a glimmer of hope something good is finally happening.

Highly unlikely since there is an A320 family FAL in China.

If BA moves to 8, what are they going to do with Terminal 7 which is owned by BA? Is it for sure going to be demolished? It's actually a pretty nice terminal, especially the check-in areas.

It’ll be interesting to see if IAD-SEA can really sustain all that capacity. With UA at 4x, AS at 3x and DL at 2x, that’s nine flights a day in summer.

[People often forget that SQ and UA aren't really "friends". A booking on SQ from just about any non-direct city will have you traveling on AS or B6 to make the connection, not UA.

It's only a matter of time (if not already) until the A220 will suffer from an increasingly bad reputation as the 737MAX. At this point I think putting it on the same levels as the 737MAX would be unfair. Perhaps, it’s almost at the level of the early Dreamliners. But then consider: if you were to ...Jump to post

Looks like possibly only 3 A350's next year, if any of the LATAM 350's end up in DL livery. Right now Ships 3524-3515 will be delivered in MAR2020 with a possible 1 LATAM 350 in late 2020.
