My take is that the rules are too lax for delays/cancellations for the airlines. Load factors are so high that cancellations can mean multi-day delays. This leads to the behavior of delaying a flight practically in perpetuity... if you were on an afternoon flight and its delayed to the next day, as...Jump to post

You can always guess who the thread-starter will be depending on what kind of Airbus related news it is. It's good to see Airbus seems to have sufficiently alerted airlines before loss of lives or other potential embarrassments. Hopefully, a fix comes soon. And then we can see who takes shooting th...Jump to post

The IAE V2500s(the hairdressers) were on every A320CEO model except for the A318, but the PW6000s on those were also hairdryers.

Why is this on the A321n and not the A320n? A321 has hairdresser engines, like the A343. So when you add a big ass and powerful engine on it, the consecuence is increase of thrust and AoA. Maybe because Airbus does that already? When that occurs, you get an ECAM alert stating that the flight contro...Jump to post

People you're missing something important: Yes, the flight/plane computer can correct it, BUT, and here's the trick part: If for some reason ALT LAW is enabled, you can be your life there's no computer correcting whatever excessive pitch the engine thrust can do.

FLL or MIA to EZE/COR/ROS/MDZ. That is the low hanging fruit. And doable with the A321XLR eventually. Not sure about the A321LR. MIA to EZE with XLR? LOL.
