I've thinking about this for a while. My question is about airline staff travellers that are elegible to get heavily discounted airfares but fly standby (they fly taking up a seat that would otherwise go empty, and wouldn't be able to get on a plane that is fully booked). I can think of arguments g...Jump to post

Good discussion of it here. I think this is likely what you’re hearing
DL, AA and UA all ordered A321s and continue to increase orders. Maybe Airbus waited for Boeing to fully commit to the NMA and then launch a bigger A320. And maybe A220-500. https://07185918574543712684.googlegroups.com/attach/57f1d448a2948/Airbus%20Future%20A320%20portfolio.jpg?part=0.1&view=1...Jump to post
Canada has rules in places requiring passengers to be fully vaccinated or they will be denied boarding. That would apply to US airlines flying to Canada. Not certain if there is an exemption for flight crew from the US flying to Canada. I hope there is not, but if there is, the entire flight should...Jump to post
Does anybody know why we haven’t heard a announcement about another plane order in awhile I get there’s factors but like every o their airline is ordering more planes to capitalize on the travel that’s going to be coming or is on the rise now.

Any idea if the Original Mint A321ceos will get updated to the Mint 2.0 or a conversion to the newer Airspace interior? I heard the space between L1 and L2 on the 321CEO isn’t enough to put 8 rows of mint 2.0, so they’d lose 2 seats, at least. Furthermore, either seat is cheap, and are still fairly...Jump to post
The 5% that won’t get vaccinated are the same 5% that causes problems, scams, is always calling sick, and is always getting in trouble at their work Oh is it?

Does the A220 make the 335'/nm climb required out BUR with a full transcon load? That is only about 1000fpm at initial climb speeds, maybe up to 1200fpm. Either way, don’t think it’d be a big deal. But not 100% sure. I think it needs to make that on single engine. I don’t believe that is the case. ...Jump to post
Ugh. I thought BOS-BUR would resume before BOS-SJC. I miss that flight. Hope the next few added 220 frames will yield more transcon routes. FLL-BUR with a 220 would also be great.

Indeed a manufacturer needs a keenly layed out product range, and Airbus has not included A320.5 going back to the days of the CEO and also did not include one during the CEO to NEO transition. They even started with 'A330-lite' and evolved through A350 to A350-XWB which is a huge success and dropp...Jump to post
Regarding seatbelt signs…and speaking only from the USA perspective…nobody can stop you from going to the lav. FAs can only say don’t do it. You can ask permission and they will say something like “I can’t tell you you can because the seatbelt sign is on. But I can’t stop you if you go.” It’s a liab...Jump to post
Most US carriers are like that in my experience. I have been on both transatlantic and transcontinental flights with US carriers where they kept the seatbelt sign on the entire flight, despite it being smooth. I've always seen the seatbelt sign in the US as more of a "lawyer light" given ...Jump to post

Forgive me if this has been discussed, which I am sure it has, but the A-Net search engine still sucks.

No, the M-models can depart at max structural weights. Possibly constraints on the ground, if using the troop compartment, only 73 seats, but floor load people and it could set a record.

I don't think the E190's need the overhaul the A320's have been through.

So what is the key selling point for economy class, an extra inch over most (standard) economy seats across the Atlantic? For business class is a supposedly lower price the selling point?
