What's the current status/plans for the refit of the 14 legacy A380s? Aircraft refits with 2017 cabin products are in progress with 9V-SKT set to be the first followed by 9V-SKS. The first aircraft having already being worked on for six months. Future refits should be in a 3-month timescale. Does a...Jump to post
Looking at their prior cheerleading on the A346, I perceive an mild anti-Boeing bias.

While not a surprise to see DL order more A220s, it is rather surprising that it's for more A221s. Maybe more 221s will get built than ever imagined. To me the biggest surprise is that all Airbus was able to get out of Delta for the show was 5 birds. I was expecting Delta to execute on at least som...Jump to post

Is it possible that these negotiations were partly triggered by Boeing not seeing a business case for the 778? Hypothetically speaking, that would also have to mean that Boeing doesn’t see Qantas going their way for Sunrise.

No, LH is the launch customer.
Basically TAP is keeping the A343 until the end of 2019 as a precaution in case they have some issue with the A339.

I would go out on a limb and say I am somewhat familiar with HPN. It’s owned by the county and operated by a private company, AvPORTS, not Port Authority.

Is the 787-10ER actually a real concept or is this something airliners.net has made up?
It's an A.net plane - just like the A350-1100
Seems like it might just be easier to keep putting a second person in the pointy end.

You do realize the only E2-175 order isn't happening due to US scope clauses? At this time, only the MRJ has viable orders. The US market is about 60% of the sales in this size range and the predominant used buyer. When we discuss larger, we are talking primarily E2-195 vs. A220, a very different m...Jump to post
I think PDX. Pdx is neglected by Alaska, has a large enough population to justify service to many cities, and is fragmented enough that a new/hip startup could gain some traction.

Shhh. The Big Front Seat is the best kept secret in the US airline industry. Don't tell everyone about it or else the price will go up.
Any further word on DL A339 test flights or deliveries?

Looks good. I’m looking forward to flying on Delta’s 339 TATL from JFK someday. Have they had a plan flying 339 out of JFK yet? I thought right now all 339 are ex-SEA. There won't be any new routes announced for the 339 until the S20 schedule. The first 4 frames are spoken for with TPAC service out...Jump to post
Boeing doesn't even have board approval to offer the 797. The max issues only slow that down. I would think someday they will operate this plane, but I wouldn't expect anything in the short term on the 797.

Combine all the traffic in the LA Basin the two airports in Chicago and the three in New York all have more movements than ATL does. Great. Go ahead and do that math for us to back your claim.

How hard would it be for the FAA to give an emergency order to allow the pilots to fly 737-300's? Wouldn't a bigger problem be that lots of the 737-300's WN parked have been scrapped already?

Wonder if this will change Delta's stance on the NMA considering their partnership with RR. Delta is partnering with Rolls but they also have other engines, True we also have a major GTF deal with Pratt. That shop is starting up as we speak. Within five years the projections are for 180 engine shop...Jump to post
Perimeter Rule? There are ways to get around that. For instance the Saturday services out of LGA past the perimeter and DEN is grandfathered in. I'd be more curious if the size of LGA's runways would prevent the range of such a route if it wasn't a low density 757. A normal density 752 could do LGA...Jump to post

From my 2 cents worth....I think Boeing would be PRAYING for Airbus to do this. All the XLR will do for you is bump MTOW by 4t, which will allow you to either fly about another 400nm or get another 12-15 pax back into the airplane that can do TATL (and probably barely that westbound in winter).

They probably will have 150-200 at some point I'll take the under on that. 737s (in their various forms) proved to be both durable (long service life) and reliable. A319/320s did for Delta, too.

Apart from selling more to existing customers, and conversions to -1000s, Qantas, Korean, Emirates and American are probably on top of Scherer's A350 campaign list. I would say American is towards the bottom considering they cancelled their long deferred A350 order last year and subsequently increa...Jump to post
