If the -10 is canceled, what becomes of the prototype(s)? Can Boeing switch them to an Experimental registration and do things like design experiments, engine test-bedding, that sort of thing? Or, will the planes be broken up? Probably broken up. Financially it easier to write off the whole program...Jump to post
I don’t think the 737-7 will be ready for service by March 9 - WN have said they will need a few months to ready everything after FAA approval/delivery. I don't think it will take them more than a quarter to put the 7M7 into service. Right. So if they get a batch of 7M7 by Jan 15, expect EIS by Apr...Jump to post

While a merger may have been a bigger win, this is a win for F9 too.
They save a bunch of cash they can invest. They get an eliminated competitor. The may be able to pickup assets. And if the deal falls through they can take a second swing at buying NK, presumably at some discount.

Russian media has reported that AirBridgeCargo (ABC) has applied to the Russian Ministry of Transport with a request to return 14 freighters to foreign lessors.
Consistent with comments over the past week, indicators seem to point toward fewer deliveries this month and the blame has been placed on supply and material shortages. But, I'm at a bit of a loss when it comes to MAX. I'd guess Boeing still has somewhere near 200 aircraft in inventory, and robust ...Jump to post

The -7 is not at issue as there is not a concern that it won't be certified this year. Neither Boeing, FAA nor Southwest has given any indication of a problem. It is still not going to plan.

The 787-10 to JNB was talked about in the United fleet thread.

The flight there isn't the real issue, taking off from JNB must have been rough.
Does anyone think it’s possible we may see DAL-Hawaii and HOU-Hawaii with the MAX7? The MAX7 has a range of ~4,400 miles. Both DAL & HOU to HNL are about 3,800-3,900 miles. This would leave about 500-600 miles for westbound headwinds and such. It would seem like it could go out awfully close to...Jump to post

E175-E2 doesn’t work at mainline costs. E2-195 would be the mainline choice.
Btw I saw Embraer said the E1-175 meets the 2028 standards (but was not very clear at all and no details).
So if an E2-170 isn’t going to happen, what about an ERJ-145 NEO?
A turboprop with the E175 experience (roomy cabin, jetway boarding) would probably do fine. How much would one weigh? Aren’t the turboprops and propellers going to weigh more that the small-GTF?
Would AA/DL/UA be willing to relax weight limits in the scope clauses but continuing to restrict cabin volume, number of seats, and cargo capacity (to avoid loopholes that would open the doors to 9E/MQ/YV/OH/YX/OO operating aircraft larger by cabin volume or cargo capacity than the E-175 or CRJ-900...Jump to post
I see zero chance for an -11 even if we take into account the recent (pick whatever bad adjective you want here) history of Boeing.

I guess I ask because the line is still technically open as the last freighter will be delivered in October, right?

With the way things are going with oil prices and the pilot shortage, it may be a stretch to assume that regional airlines even exist in 2027....

Looks like on a summer day (85F) at 6k feet a 737-8 hits brake energy limits at 11k feet of runway and is already down 10,000 lbs from max MTOW.

Maybe a dumb question but what's going on with the max 10? Delays in FAA certification?
