Swiss is certainly a nicer experience, especially on the new A220s which now exclusively operate the route out of GVA. They are also much cheaper on most days... clearly BA feels they can make more money elsewhere What aircraft is Swiss using on the ZRH-LCY route? Like on ZRH-BHX, they use E190s op...Jump to post

And one more question: is it in the end a firm order or still a MOU?
I am asking because on Air France website 60 firm orders are mentioned but this thread's title mentions a MOU.
What is the difference between the 30 options and the 30 purchase rights?Jump to post
The thread got some very interesting answers, but this is the most interesting of all. I have explained here before, it was because of Government launch aid: after this is paid back, the Governments take a levy on every aircraft sold. For example the UK Government gets a levy on every A320 series ai...Jump to post
Great news for Airbus.
Does anyone know why the A320 family models use names like A319, A320 etc, while for the rest of the families it is always the same model number and then it is differentiated with -200, -300 etc? To explain it more, we all know: A318 A319ceo/neo A320ceo/neo A321ceo/neo But then in A330 we have: A330...Jump to post
Awesome news. The A350 needs more orders from operators that will respect it and not pack 400+ people inside it. Who packs 400+ people into the A359? Sorry, I had the A330neo in mind. :lol: But still, given the rumours about 10-abreast A350, it is important to sell it to operators that will respect...Jump to post

And the A320neo has better availability? They might simply lease A320ceo and/or A320neo. So it is not a matter of "Airbus being able to deliver faster" but a matter of what is available for them to get somehow. And no, don't tell me that in this case they could also lease 737NG. It is a t...Jump to post
These discussions tend to get confused because there are a number of small regional players and ‘LCCs’ embedded in the major groups.

Additionally, if the worst case scenario for Boeing happens, and the MAX is never again allowed to fly, then Boeing will obviously build an amazing new modern small aircraft from scratch, which will crash the A230neo and will force Airbus too to spend billions in order to develop a really new moder...Jump to post
Seems Boeing's suggestion that it can be fixed via software is yet another opportunity for Boeing to disappoint should it not be fixable via software.

If I were Airbus, I would have just sat quietly, taken the moral high ground, and watched as IAG/Boeing dug themselves out of another mess with the invevitable legal challenges from market authorities/shareholders, etc...

I would think that the A321XLR would be perfect for Iceland Air. Maybe I missed a comment earlier, but is there a reason why they wouldn't want to order this type?

Not unless Boeing develop containerised baggage handling for the 737 as BA cannot unload loose bags at Heathrow T5 BA will be basing the 737 at LGW, so that should render any concerns about containerized cargo handling at LHR re: 737 as moot.

The order is a win for everyone involved honestly, including Airbus.
Great (and very surprising news); I am wondering which airlines in the IAG group will operate it. BA has pretty much committed to the Neo; IB is an Airbus carrier; Vueling likewise; I can't see EI operating short haul Boeings in the near or medium term (though they need to renew their short haul fl...Jump to post

the 321xlr seems to be a hit. I wonder why airbus is so reticent for a rewing though? surely the investment would be worth it The 321 was already outselling Boeing by far.

I reckon Boeing will book at least 1 777x customer and 1 - 2 new 787 customers and a couple of 787 top ups including new customer for 78J. I also think Airbus will get 1-2 new A350 customers including an order for A35K and possibly more A330 Neo customers onto the books. I would predict 2-3 airline...Jump to post

Flown Eurowings twice in the past year from Hamburg.

"-71 737 MAX (Jet Airways)
2019 ASC 606 Changes for the 737 went from -196 to -131. That's a reduction of 65, so it's not a 1 on 1 reduction to the new cancellation. "
So 65 of the 71 cancellations are from Jet and the remaining are from some other airline?

Yes. Let's hope June will be better.
Just 1 order in May for Airbus, but at least looks like they did not had any cancellations.

After March the total sales for 737 MAX was 5012, now it is 5008.
Thanks for the breakdown Someone83. So it looks like Boeing put some extra resources into widebodies since it had to produce less 737s? Or maybe it was anyway going to be that many widebodies in March. What resources would be transferable between BFI and Everett?? So it was indeed planned to delive...Jump to post
