Sunwing airlines cancels MAX flights through May 2020

I feel the E2 has a massive struggle coming. For an airline the opportunity cost of buying the E2 is not getting the A220..... Why would you take the E2 over the A220? Yes, Embraer is in the same situation than BBD 20 years ago with their CRJ700/900 when Embraer launched the Ejet. Even worse, the E...Jump to post

Airlines bear the responsibility for their choice of aircraft. In this case, it is said that Boeing built an aircraft that the airlines wanted, cheap and easy to use with some modern features that may or may not fit or work . Unless they can prove that they didn't want the airplane in the first pla...Jump to post
Thanks Caaardiff and by738 Their fleet just goes against all "rules of thumb" of aviation that has been created over the years- surely it costs more to have different set of training for staff, pilots and maintenance having 3 similar fleet types with a "small" fleet. Surely they ...Jump to post
Does anyone know why Virgin has the 787, A350 and A330?Jump to post
I am still baffled why Embraer didnt make the 175E2 fit US scope clauses, even if it meant smaller, less efficient engines, it wouldve sold hundreds if not in the thousands. Of course I know there must be a reason for it. Maybe to do that its not much better than the E1 so it wasnt worth it ?Jump to post

Apparently the pilots put in the wrong weight for takeoff, so the power used was a lot less? If that is true, why didnt the pilots realise that the plane wasnt picking up enough knots and put full throttle at some point?
Weird and Lucky.

New MCAS test flight: http://twitter.com/AirlineFlyer/status/1158446487560499203 I guess the test pilots know exactly what they’re doing (and have pre-briefed procedures if severely out of trim like rock-and-roll), but I still wouldn’t like to be on a plane futzing with MCAS activation at FL100... ...Jump to post

Air France orders a lot of A220. Is that a sign Airbus will announce some A220 cancellations? I have been waiting for some confirmation for these orders since long time. ⋅ 10 A220-100 Braathens ⋅ 10 A220-100 Gulf Air ⋅ 14 A220-300 Ilyushin Finance ⋅ 5 A220-30...Jump to post
Ugh. Read one page of replies and was quickly reminded why I have stayed out of this thread recently. Boeing is not in financial trouble. They will be just fine. As are all the suppliers. Max deliveries by my estimate will begin in early q4 . Year end financials will be fine. Why have some airlines...Jump to post
This is so bad now, 1 in 3 test pilots couldnt save the plane. How did Boeing get away with this? I dont buy that they didnt know there was flaws. They did, they just thought "what are the chances of it actually crashing?" and saw $$$ Seriously, the only way I see the MAX flying pax again,...Jump to post
I really hope its a decent order for the E2. It needs orders badly.
However I fear they will choose the A220, from what I have read its better in hot and high conditions.
I know that passengers shouldnt be doing it, but it should be up to UA to fix it, if pax are doing it then they should have a way of stopping it, like an online account or something. The problem for UA, is when they call a passenger out for doing it, if the pax then says "XYZ happened so I coul...Jump to post
its a lot worse than the DC-10 in my opinion. This is a plane that might never fly pax again....Jump to post
I am so happy that another European airline is getting the A220. I flew on the Swiss A220 out of MAN recently, its by far the most comfy plane ive been in economy for years. If anyone hasnt flown in one yet - I urge them to get some tickets booked. I hope the A220 sells thousands and I reckon it wil...Jump to post

I am reading that Boeing made a 2.9billion loss, does that mean they are in the red by 2.9billion, or they lost 2.9billion from what they did last year?
Boeing of course knows the figures, but at some point the cost of trying to get the plane back in the air will out way the cost of scrapping it and making a new plane. The A220/CS100/300 cost 5.1billion on its own. A NSA would probably be more 10-20billion. If the grounding continues into late 2020 ...Jump to post

Well I understand the technicalities, you are just talking about cash flow. They were going to get 4.9billion, now they are not. Its a loss of 4.9billion. No. Garuda's 4.9 billion would have fully contributed to Boeings revenue but only part of it - say 10 % or 490 million - would have been profits...Jump to post
Does this include the 4.9 billion order from Garuda Indonesia that was cancelled? or is this just costs in general, so its 4.9billion on top of the 5.6billion? Er, no. The $4.9billion Garuda order would have yielded a theoretical profit at some future date as each individual aircraft was delivered,...Jump to post

Er, the revisions to MCAS are also apparently software fixes. So basically fixed with a keyboard. One would assume that any revisions to the A32Xneo FBW software to eliminate this anomalous situation would be required to go through a similar verification and validation process as the MCAS revisions...Jump to post
This almost confirms why Airbus has been so silent over the MAX and Boeing recently. The MAX crashes with fatalities would have opened the authorities eyes at not just Boeing, but Airbus as well.

Actually ive worked it out. It was the Comac C929 people are missing the E2-190 is already in service, seen one out of liverpool.
Could it be the Sukhoi Superjet 130 the one that people are missing?Jump to post
The 737 MAX illustrates exactly what is wrong with Boeing’s safety culture. It’s not a “safety” culture. It’s a beancounter culture. The fact that short term cost savings for one person’s budget is rewarded. That’s the problem. Ironically, Dennis’ new Boeing Behaviors call for a paradigm shift that...Jump to post

Ironic reasons given the mess with the MAX. Indeed. To order such a dubious aircraft would require some serious discounts. The A320NEO is currently flying all over the world.

Nothing happened to the passengers. Therefore there are no damages to claim. How many times does this need to be said for you to believe it? Good grief. Just because no incident happened that’s A-OK?
