As I noted in th other thread, interesting that they selected GE and not RR (which powers their A332s and would power their A338 if they keep that order). Especially given that their average stage length is not long for a 787 operator. Seems like the current Trent 1000 issues may be causing long-te...Jump to post
Did I say they have decided to move? One can not ignore that there is already another plant for A320 wings running and that this supplier is eager for more work , so while it is a lot of barking, this dog is not completely toothless.

Spohr is stating the obvious. It's not like A321LR can fly 5,000nm. Nope. Frankfort to New York is 3350 nautical miles. Not 5000 nautical miles. There is not flight from Germany to anywhere on the East Coast that comes close to 5000nm. https://www.airmilescalculator.com/distance/jfk-to-fra/ You're ...Jump to post
Let’s not be too hyperbolic. MUC-IAD for example is ~3700nm, MUC-ATL is ~4100nm. There is nothing hyperbolic about that argument. Nominal range is meaningless. Once you take ESAD range into account, you go beyond the aircraft's design range of 4,000 nm. As such, the LR simply cannot do MUC-IAD (fro...Jump to post
The 321 LR range has always been an issue. Ive said it time and time again. Ive been told im anti-airbus...but im just reporting what flight ops has told us. You could safely go south from the US.

This feels like a déjà vu. Perhaps Boeing can discount the 737 MAX 7 at UA to prevent a CSeries order, like they did with the 737-700 in 2017.

You've just opened a can of worms.
If the US3 would lobby for subsidies, the WTO would explode as airlines all over the world would start filling complaints.
I was wondering why A359 is not as capable as the 789. On paper it seems like even regular A359 has more range than the 789, while in reality this is not the case. UA can fly 789 LAX-SIN without blocking seats whereas SQ's 359 cannot do with severely reduced load. Tell us the source of these “facts...Jump to post
RR has started 2018 with a little setback, but remains optimistic for the rest of the year.

I would not pay too much attention to editorial comments. It's just an opinion and they change tone when a large order is announced. Is Airbus becoming solely dependent on A359 in the wide body market? The jury is still out. The entire A330 backlog is healthy (> 300 orders / 4-5 years production) an...Jump to post

This was expected. While FAA certification may be imminent, the USAF will not accept the current boom design.
If HA have already decided they would be choosing between 339 or 789 in their RFP instead of 338 then Airbus should probably know much earlier that they are not going to take those 338, even if they ultimately stay with 330neo? I'm puzzled about the A339 being part of the RFP. If HA wants to fly to...Jump to post
And Currently, both A321neos are grounded due to the PW Engine issue which probably makes Hawaiian very frustrated with Airbus currently.
