I’m not sure of the total number. But a bunch in the next 5 years. 737-MAX8 number 3. N27253 scheduled to exit SEA induction and ferry to ORD on July 25th. F2755 Wow they are really moving along.

What's going to happen to the PW-powered 777 fleet? With the engine type being troublesome and the subfleet grounded for some time (for the most part at least) and the planes being very much advanced in age for a respectable major airline is there any news if, and when those are being retired for g...Jump to post

A few updates from the employee event today Does the construction end Oct 1st or the 31st? Because for October, UA will have around 330 flights a day, 90 more then the FAA’s request. The full runway closure is scheduled to end on 10/1. There will be weekend/nightly closures after that date to conti...Jump to post
Noticed that Delta has scheduled the B739 on LGA-DEN over the past while...UA has it in the schedule as well, and has historically. I was under the impression (from a.net) that the 739 is too field performance-limited to be able to do a 4 hour flight from the 7000 foot runways at LGA. Is this just ...Jump to post
What’s the difference is having these aircraft at the hubs vs ROW. There are over 90 airplanes parked at ROW right now. Is it cheaper to have them parked there? Well they must have listened to me lol. We now have a spare 767-400 at IAD and they just used it on a MCO turn. Capt refused a 757-300 due...Jump to post
That may be true for a handful of touristy destinations during the heart of peak summer travel, but definitely doesn’t reflect the industry as a whole. In the fall and winter, for example, several top European airlines are selling incredibly cheap J fares - RT$1500 to CDG, FRA, LHR, etc. from LAX, ...Jump to post
I work for a top three legacy European airline at JFK and all I can say is that the flights are packed in all cabins. Everyday. And the front is just as full as the back, so I’d say business travel is back. And wealthy vaccinated Americans are too. Let’s wait until the USA opens to vaccinated Europ...Jump to post

DL is a fairly distant #3 at ASE, and I seriously doubt OO would commit to any sort of "exclusivity" on the E75 for Delta at ASE. It wouldn't be worth the investment. UA is also interested in replacing the remaining OO CR7 flying with E-175SC, so if the #1 and #3 airlines at ASE are pushi...Jump to post

Can this be correct? I understand the -200 can be ferried to the mainland, but LAS, and at such a a low altitude? I also didn't think Aloha had any -200's left in their fleet.

Let me answer your question with a question, once it all said and done how many A321s will Delta have in their fleet? I believe present orders put them to about 230 A321s, alongside about 135 739s and presently 100 757s (and a few 753s). There was a DL investor presentation graphic about four years...Jump to post

I have sources that are saying most of the grounded 777s won’t be returning to service. Likely to see a sizable wide body order here to help replace that lift.Jump to post

I don't mean to jinx it, but watching the mess unfold at AA right now, and I can't help but think that UA really had the right strategy for the ramp-up out of the pandemic.

I notice barring the A320 series, UA has an all-Boeing fleet. 1) CO had an all-Boeing fleet as well.
