The economy cabins sucked but now the alternative is a 737 with a cramped plastic interior. Nothing to celebrate here.

I'm wondering if this virus crisis is another big acceleration of the death of the A380? Glad I got my first flight on one a few weeks ago. The virus is the death of the 777X. Nobody will want such a large plane with the risks of another pandemic. Luckily almost all Superjumbos have been delivered....Jump to post

When you consider all the impacts, this is a big statement.

This would be news if AA did not have a trash can of an operation. AS loyals will expect a good run operation, which AA is not. DP better ensure focus is placed at SEA for their operation.

The 717 fleet was quite minuscule, yet the few operators it had found a way to keep it running. Sure, but that's because the economics work. The 717 is the tail end of the DC9/MDxx family and it's used on relatively short hops where its previous generation engines don't hold it back too much, and D...Jump to post

The wild card is if the China deal results in new orders. If they do, would they still cut the rate to extend the program life? The China "deal" won't make China order more planes then they need. Sure but the rate 14 increase was done partly in anticipation of future Chinese orders that n...Jump to post
I just hope this translates into a more reliable and CONSISTENT product/experience for passengers. i'll agree with the more reliable part, but by and large AA's hard and soft product is consistently good across the board.

That plane exists. It's the A320 series. You're basically asking them to build a better A320 than the A320 - which is fine and laudable, but by the time you got it in the air, Airbus would be planning for the future, as well as having whatever incremental improvements already baked into the 320N se...Jump to post

I don't know about significant potential in Boeing orders quite frankly. China is living an EV boom and Tesla now barely opened their Shanghai factory for Model 3. At 50.000 USD a pop, it takes 20.000 Tesla's per billion USD in industrial goods which is nothing considering current EV sales figures....Jump to post

From the instagram video, it looks like the plane was either: A) On fire before the video started B) Was not on fire before as there is a large explosion mid-air If it’s B) This would suggest the plane was on fire for about 30 seconds before hitting the ground, and as its a rather shallow descent i...Jump to post
