Rather than being short of A380s, could it be more that the routes do not justify it outside their peak seasons? this shows how short BA is of A380s, I'm still very surprised that they haven't ordered more. For Y pax they have to be the ride of choice: Y in BA B789 versus Y in BA A380 is no contest ...Jump to post
Bit of a strange article by Leeham, 'Boeing offering a solution for the AAL B767s' but he can't say what it is? 142 A350 deliveries in 2018, only half the A330 production sold for 2018?Jump to post
So do they need a smaller long range aircraft? I'm sure Boeing would sell them one!Jump to post
A Scandinavian airline operating UK-US is probably going to be an issue in the future unless they set up a UK divisionJump to post

From FG: After rumours of the 737 Max 10X’s pending go-ahead have swirled for weeks, Boeing has scheduled a press conference at 10 am on 19 June in the auditorium of the Air and Space museum at Le Bourget, a more spacious venue than Boeing’s media chalet..... https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articl...Jump to post

Part 2 of this report documents the complexities and drawbacks of mixed mode at LHR
http://www.heathrowappg.com/wp-content/ ... ssue-1.pdf
Gatwick is about 5% heavies, Heathrow 40% so comparisons on runway movement rates are not appropriate. Mid forties on each side is about right. Mixed mode would be very complex and could even result in lower movement rates. Unless the weather is perfect, approaches must be staggered as the runways a...Jump to post

That post is very incorrect.

Nice political statement - 'if you let us have the first 30 we will order more'!
Deal is for 30 737MAX and they are ready to order another 30 once this order has been delivered
Lots of bargains to be had!
