Latin America's largest airline LATAM files for U.S. bankruptcy protection
https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-latam ... KKBN2320H4
I was not quoting anyone, therefore I did not misquote anyone. I wrote that Lufthansa "apparently prefers to file for bankruptcy" because this is my own opinion. ... The term "apparently" suggests the claimed fact were for everyone to see, thus quite opposite to an opinion - as ...Jump to post
Luthansa apparently prefers to file for bankruptcy than receive 9 billion from the German government and have to accept its terms. This is a mis quote that originates from a media outlet. It was never stated that this would be a preferred option just that it is one out of several options. I was not...Jump to post

Who would have believed that just two years ago.
Leasers like ALAFCO are using the delays (that started over a year ago) as an excuse to cancel orders for aircraft that due to COVID-19 nobody will want to lease. For serious airlines the combination of the 2 events is a better outcome than each one separately. For example Southwest might have suffe...Jump to post
It's amazing how gullible German taxpayers (especially in Berlin and Brandenburg) are. In most other places this sort of incompetence over the past 10-15 years would have likely resulted in at least one change of government. Some officials lost their jobs due to the disastrous handling. What else w...Jump to post
If Austria does not want VIE to be dehubbed they should let OS collapse and support an Austrian airline.
Having said that, given I do not live in Austria, I am happy to see the Austrian government supporting Lufthansa.
I don't have access to the numbers but wasn't it reported in these pages many times that the 737 has a lower fatality rate than the A320? Or if higher not statistically significant to be considered worse? This may have just been for the 737 NG which has been around for most of the life of the A320....Jump to post
Help me understand why one UK airline with a billionaire owner is worthy of saving in your opinion, but another isn’t? :confused: EasyJet innovates while VS replicates (British Airways). I am not in the Europe scene when it comes to aviation for some time now but I wanted to know, genuinely, what k...Jump to post
This pandemic gives a great opportunity to airlines to get out of the obligation to buy an obsolete and dangerous aircraft.
We will hopefully see much more cancellations in the coming weeks.
it is hilarious how Germany is bending rules, considering its strict lack of flexibility with the respect to other countries... both hopefully the lufthansa group will emerge in a decent and competitive way out of this Germany did not ask for money from any other country in order to bend any rules....Jump to post

Its obvious that the MAX will be the last iteration of the 737. So what comes after will require new infrastructure. Its longevity in the marketplace will be shortened by the knowledge that something else has to come after it. So the opportunity cost of switching will likely not be as high as it mi...Jump to post
The Portuguese economy will end up in a disaster either way. The growth in the Portuguese economy has been a mix government debt, tax-breaks (those Golden visas and expats on that 10-year scheme not to pay income tax - now being partially withdrawn -), real estate bubble (prices in Lisbon or Porto ...Jump to post
It makes a lot of sense for Lufthansa and United to invest in TAP, even if it's not a controlling share.Jump to post
I do not want EASA to trust anything that FAA has approved, at least for the next few years.
FAA dropped the ball badly with the MAX so they will have to win my (our) trust.
Rumor (Reuters) has it that Airbus delivered 863 aircraft in the end.

The 77X and A350-1000 are not getting much traction at the moment as much of the replacement cycle is not yet ready to take place. This will need to be assessed in a few years when more fleet decisions are taken. Yet the A350-1000 does not need as much traction as the 777-X does because it's part o...Jump to post
Very good news.
The A350 keeps asserting its superiority.
If Boeing avoids the risk of coming up with a clean sheet, they will be repeating the same mistakes when they wasted so much time pondering on the cleansheet versus Max, and see where they have ended with. It is better to take the risk, develop a new airliner which will give them lots of years of u...Jump to post
I don't think that any of Airbus or Boeing need this order.Jump to post
From https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/airbus-picks-up-undisclosed-order-for-four-a330-800s-462717/: With one month remaining to the end of the year, the airframer has delivered a total of 725 aircraft.

Easyjet is bracing itself for a market slowdown. Furthermore, they can acquire cheap aircraft by buying failing carriers in the next years Then again, new NEOs would mean it can meet its CO2 neutral goal much easier..... buying "old" aircraft is against that philosophy. Sure, but then the...Jump to post
Hmmm...... Boeing is collecting "only" letter of Interest" (LOI) and no MOU or firm orders. It is not surprising that customers do not want to commit to the MAX before it is finally sorted out. They are saying that once it is back in the sky and flying without any issues, there are w...Jump to post
Easyjet orders 12 x a320 https://airbuspress.airbus-helicopters.info//en/ref/view_mobile.html?id=352 I was quite surprised to read that they "only" have ordered 159 NEO's. They have around 150 more a/c to replace them 1 for 1 and yet they "only" order 12 at a time. Easyjet is br...Jump to post
With this Emirates order the A350 family is getting very close to 1000 net orders.Jump to post
Nice to see DeHavilland getting some sales.Jump to post
I find it surprising that they are not just finishing off the remaining A320 ceo orders. Less than 100 remain to be delivered, why are they not just pushing them out so that they can stop the production line? Because it is not a separate production line. Airbus can run a mix of neo and ceo on the s...Jump to post

Having moved from Berlin to Hamburg, yes, the public transportation here works much better most of the time and especially the S-Bahn line to the airport is waaay more reliable than the S-Bahn or regional lines going to SXF in Berlin. Does this mean that public transportation in Berlin sucks? No. Bu...Jump to post
Airbus is well on track to deliver considerably more aircraft than 2018. :thumbsup: Yes but to reach a full-year goal of 880-890 deliveries they have to beat all kinds of records and deliver almost 100 planes per month in the last quarter. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-airbus-orders/airbus-fac...Jump to post
