I am not going to defend Trump as his tweet is ridiculous. But I read your post and I immediately thought of a common thing you see in sports all the time, and that is diving or flopping.

This is a strange topic for TechOps. In hindsight, you should have bought Boeing when it dipped below $100 a share in early March. It was just over $200 a share yesterday. I have a friend who bought them for their dividend at around $120 many years ago. I kept telling him to sell when it was in the...Jump to post
How are they in a position to tell Airbus, or Boeing for that matter, that they will never buy an aircraft from them again?

If airlines believe they won't be sued for failing to honour a contract, then they start to treat firm orders as options. The moment that an aircraft manufacturer wins in court against an airline, the firm-order-is-an-option approach will stop Large airlines are not like vulnerable widows or orphan...Jump to post

Iamlucky13 sums it up pretty well when it comes to the hardware. Where there will be a change is in cost, now whether those cost savings will be passed on by the airlines that go with the system is yet to be seen.

I have said the same thing a few times on here, Princess did an amazing job with the Royal/Regal/Enchanted, definitely over favorite big ships.
The whole industry owes a lot to Renaissance Cruises, their R ships have gone on to have very successful second lives with other lines.

Anecdotal, but let’s say you wanted to book a weekend trip from LA to Vegas next month. Roundtrip on Southwest right now is $90. Same flight on the JSX website is over $1200.

The DOT isn't the one that will cause the airlines to change, it will be a lawsuit, some lawyer is going to wise up to the mass breach of contract and form a class action.

Hmm, good question. I believe yes and no. I guess airlines would order more cargo planes, cause no one wants to fly. But, it depends on the planes.

Not really when you think of the amount of energy when a 40000kg object hits a 100 kg object at 150 mph. The forces transferred would certainly be felt through the plane.
