Re: Air Transat leases 10 A321neoLRs

Come on...230 in a 321 is pretty low standard. You want widebody seating, you need a widebody. They are taking a hit on seats offered because new plane is much smaller than the 30 year old plane it replaces. Have you ever flown on a 9-abreast A310 from Transat? I did many times and I welcome this 6...

Re: Boeing targets Bombardier for “price dumping” CSeries

Couldn't Delta setup a leasing arm in Canada, the Bahamas, whatever, provide it with Capital then have it procure the CSeries? Then it could lease the aircraft from its subsidiary and technically there wouldn't be any export of CSeries to the USA as no USA-based corporation would own said aircraft. ...

Re: AirBaltic Launches Q400 Replacement RFP

At least the E2 and CSeries have similar engines, however it would have made more sense for them to replace the Q400 and 737s with the E2s together instead of mix CSeries and E2s. I'm thinking we'll probably see them just add CS100s. Baltic required both the extra range (middle-east, southern Europ...
