I think AI stands for Air India when it stands for Airbus.

RE: Re:transpacific

Lufthansa ordering the 767-400? I think they'll order the A330-200, which is outselling the 767-400 2:1 and has commonality with the 340. As for the MD-11, BA can probably get enough orders to maintain the 12 aircraft/year rate, but maybe it isn't profitable...

RE: Saudi Arabian L1011s

There was something in Aviation week or Flight Int. saying that the Tristars have been withdrawn from service. It was pretty recent issue.

klm orders

KLM has ordered 4 747-400 Combis and also 5 737-800? I am not sure if the 737 order is new though. The press release is on their web site www.klm.com

RE: MD-11 retirements

I have only heard about American and Swissair selling their MD-11 fleet. Are there any others? The MD-11 will be around for a long time as a freighter. Its too bad that BA is ending production of it since its a great freighter.

RE: MD11 Cargo

There was a press release last year that Fedex was buying Swissair's MD-11. Others like KLM, Alitalia haven't indicated what theyr'e going to do with theirs, but they could just convert them to freighters. You can now reply to me at [email protected]

RE: Fedex Taking Swissair MD-11

Fedex last year ordered Pratt powered MD-11s from Boeing, so they are likely to operate both engine types.

RE: 777-100 vs. 767-400ER

I think if BA shortened the 777-200IGW, they would get a plane that can do 10,000 miles using the existing 92K engines. Only RR seems to be committed to developing a 104K engine for the 777-200X. But BA hasn't had much luck shortening aircraft like Airbus-look at the A319 and A330-200 which are sell...

RE: Happy Birthday 727

What do you think will happen to the three holers that are going to be retired by AA, Delta, TWA, Iberia, United etc. Most of the airlines operating passenger 727 have announced their replacement by 2005 or so. Will these be converted to freighters?

RE: United Airlines A319

I feel that the A320 makes a smoother landing than the 737. Any one else thinks so? Also the interior noise in the 737NG seems to be the same as the current generation.

RE: American 777 Coming Soon !

Check out this URL: http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/990201/tx_america_1.html. I says AA will be conducting route proving flights in Feb and starting 777 service from DFW-London on March 2 and DFW-Japan March 28. AA also has taken delivery of 2 777 and will get 9 more this year.

CRJ vs ERJ

What do you think of the CRJ and the ERJ. Which one is better? It seems like the ERJ was later to market but its been selling well. CRJ has gotten lots of orders recently too-like Skywest and Horizon. Do you think the popularity of these jets is putting pressure on the 100 seat market? Thanks, sv11

RE: B757 vs A320

I feel that the 757/320/321 can't be compared. The 320/321 can be compared more to the 737NG. The 757 is in its own niche. It is used on short, medium and long routes. It can fly up to 4500 miles. I believe Icelandair uses it to fly across the Atlantic and Continental from Cleveland to Machester? Th...

RE: BA 777 Engines

The Trent 800 is a popular engine and has been ordered by traditional P&W and G.E customers like Delta, American, SIA, Emirates, MAS. Maybe BA figured they should have gone with the Trent 800 in the first place. I believe RR was also promising a 102K version in the future but GE said that the market...

RE: Cathy Pacific 777

Airlines in Asia are pretty reluctant to fly twins on long range flights. Cathay and Singapore are flying 777 on regional routes and using A340/747 on long range routes. Of course there are exceptions like China Southern's Guangzhou-LAX flown on 777 and also MAS's Dubai-JFK? on a 777.

RE: MD-11? YEAH!

The MD-11 is also a great freighter. Looks like the freighter forcasts are looking good for the next 20 years and it may be a mistake ending production of the MD-11. May be 12 aircraft/year is not an efficient production rate but the 747 is forecast to go to that rate in 2000? I guess the reason sta...

RE: 767-200......

It seems to me that the A330-200 is outselling the 767-400 by 2 to 1. Indeed I feel the A330-200 is the best twin widebody Airbus has right now. Regarding the Air France order I think they had some outstanding orders for 737, 767s and they ran into trouble and ended up converting it to the 777 rathe...
