Delta currently has 13 359's. I wonder how long things will remain bad enough before Delta needs to start receiving additional 359's. Airbus will force deliveries before DL needs more widebodies. The relationship will get... complicated. Lightsaber ALL relationships will get complicated not just th...Jump to post
Airbus has such a big backlog, it should not be a problem to get loans from banks with good interest rate. They can also issue bonds. The backlog can be the collateral. The backlog is worth nothing. If they deliver a 1/3 of the planes would be a surprise. And how much of the backlog of the other ma...Jump to post

[twoid][/twoid] Why did Boeing discontinue all 3 767 passenger versions in the first place? Was it really easier to fill the next 20-40 seats profitably 20-30 years ago as you went up in size from 767-200 to 767-300 to 767-400/A330-200 to A330-300, and not now? The popularity of the 767-300 long aft...Jump to post
.... The 77L would only have a compelling business case if the capital cost was close to zero. That wasn't the case 10 years ago, but if Boeing were giving them away then that might change the cost analysis enough. I'm still doubtful though. Let's see this differently. Let us assume Boeing with a c...Jump to post

Another A380 bashing thread. I think it is unproductive to UNDERESTIMATE the A380Jump to post
The more this thread progresses, I think more people understand that it is unproductive to underestimate the A220. #worksbothwaysJump to post
Aaliyah in 2001 because the plane was too heavy and perhaps the pilot was loco. And in Europe also in 2001 Melanie Thornton and members of a girl band called Passion Fruit, all perished on board Crossair 3597.Jump to post
