Re: DL to permanently retire entire 777 fleet

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...

Re: DL to permanently retire entire 777 fleet

DL officially stated that JNB and SYD will resume with the 350. Yet people still discuss otherwise.

Re: DL to permanently retire entire 777 fleet

DL future longhaul widebody fleet will be 330/350. It seems many people cannot Accept that. Re the alleged killer deal. Airbus could even offer a better deal as Proven by Boeing - UA.

Re: Airbus CEO: "“We’re bleeding cash; may threaten existence of company"

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...

Re: Reuters: Boeing considering 757-Plus and 767-X

I could see a 767 update making a lot of sense. Possibly Boeing trying to reclaim Delta and getting them to stay with their large 767 fleets instead of switching everything over to A330NEOs. Maybe even American, they are joined at the hip to the A330s from US Airways, while they have a sizable 787 ...

Re: Reuters: Boeing considering 757-Plus and 767-X

[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...

Re: Qantas plans 3 Project Sunrise research flights in Q4 2019 using 787-9's, final decision on PS by end of 2019

.... 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...

Re: The Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash 42 years ago today.

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.
