It's so funny, in every thread about the A340 people are talking about how slow this bird is... <img src="/discussions/graphics/spin.gif" ALT="Smile/happy/getting dizzy"> Do you guys mind that the B767 has an ever slower crusing speed? Why don't you mention it while talking about the B767? Do ...Jump to post
Interesting, LH seems to take the best of each manufacturer... A B747X freighter order would mean a A380 passenger order.....since B747X passenger versions are not mentioned in the article, right? Well, I guess these 8 B747XF will replace the existing B742F at LH, but which aircraft will provide for...Jump to post
Notarzt, I have mixed feelings about Varig and LanChile and I'm really not sure if they will go for the B764. Varig is rumored to be looking at the A332 since they appearently want to end their "exclusivity" with Boeing and establish relationships with both manufacturers (in order to get better pric...Jump to post
F4N, I actually forgot many potential future B764 customers in my list, that's why I decided to look at all non-US-airlines which could be interested in this bird and try to guess how likely an order from them would be. Let's have a look at all cities Boeing visited during the B767-400ER-world-tour ...Jump to post
Dear all, I really have a problem saying that one aircraft is "better" than another one. I would never claim that the A340 for example is better than the B777 and vice versa. There are just too many factors that have to be considered by the airlines evaluating competing products from various manufac...Jump to post
Notarzt wrote: "Airbus prefers to attack the Boeing product by comparing their Airbus model in specific characteristics (of which they know they appear to be better than Boeing)." Sorry, but the Boeing info on the longer-range B764ER you quoted also only compares the B764 in certain characteristics ...Jump to post

Was that the same video clip that is on the Airbus website (about 10 seconds long)?
SMI, from what I've heard what Boeing offered SIA, B747X prices are very very attractive too. <img src="/discussions/graphics/spin.gif" ALT="Smile/happy/getting dizzy"> Boeing could strike a deal including the B753, this would be pretty hard to resist don't you agree?

Marc Schaeffner's orders site says that the battle is between the B777 and the A330. The B764 plays no role in the decision. Rumor also has it that SIA struck a deal with Boeing that the B777 will get cheaper for them with every single order or option converted. This could hint to a decision that fa...Jump to post

RayChuang, as much as I would like to see the A380 in service with a Japanese carrier, I doubt it will happen. However, if Boeing cancels the B747X, they'll have no alternative... I think UA and Northwest actually are a good bet and both will indeed order the A380. So will BA and CX I think. Best re...Jump to post
Well, Lufthansa is fully privatised, but they'll still face stong public opinion against them if they order the B747X over the A380.
Therefore, and because of the advantages the A380 offers (family concept etc.) I think LH will opt for the A380 in the end.
Well, BA recently changed their EC policy.
You only have to fly BA once every 3 years in order not to get kicked out...
And now you can collect miles even on discouted Economy tickets. Not bad if you ask me!
Just to bring an end to this discussion: :-(
Airbus today announced that the launch of the A330-500 has been delayed until an unknown date (i.e. when there are enough customers!).
Hmmm, what will SIA do now? A321, B764, B753 come to mind...
Airbus' website only has the official announcement. This is from Reuters: PARIS, Jan 29 (Reuters) - "European plane maker Airbus Industrie said on Monday it expected both Northwest Airlines Corp and United Airlines to order its new A380 superjumbo plane. ``I would expect both United and Northwest to...Jump to post
Well, I doubt that. Lufthansa is looking seriously at the B747X program to get a better price for the A380 I suppose. However, the B747X freigther would siut them very well I think. Who knows, maybe they'll order both the A380 pax/freighter and the B747X freighter. Best regards the WorldTravellerJump to post

The Airbus prices Iainhol quoted are the sometimes heavily discounted prices some airlines got from Airbus. The Boeing prices Iainhol quoted are list prices virtually no customer has to pay. Or does anybody here believes for example AA will have to pay $50 Million for each of the 400-500 B737NG they...Jump to post

Someone who was in TLS a couple of days ago reported this in the Airbus forum on egroups.com.
Sorry, that's all I know... :-(
Lufthansa (which owns a 20% stake in BM) appearently wants BM to keep the word "British" included in the new name.
B757300, please, I really didn't intend to make you mad. This "deletion thing" was not really meant to be serious... But why do you have a problem when people are happy about an Airbus order?
