i quite like it, though it could have use a bit more change imo. I still prefer american's current livery though.Jump to post
No matter what UA reveals tomorrow, I predict the following: 1. A minuscule fraction of A.net will either like it or not care. 2. The overwhelming majority of A.net will completely lose their minds and claim the new livery is the worst aviation livery disaster since the last airline rebranding. i f...Jump to post

DFW isn't slot restricted. AA will be happy to get more gates, though.
I would say thanks for the laugh but with over 300 people dead that'd be pretty callous. 'Intended to be transparent'? Are you actually serious? You have a very different definition of transparent to the one most of us are familiar with. Even one of Boeing's test pilots has been quoted saying he wa...Jump to post

I have no idea what you're talking about. It's the strongest player in the Transatlantic market from the UK - growing in capacity and destinations served every year.

We'll see. That BA is losing relevance in all its markets, from Asia to TATL and the Kangaroo route is a certainty. Short-term profits, long-term disaster. I have no idea what you're talking about.

[code][/code] Mint will be a huge challenge to AA and DL at LHR.

Slight misunderstanding. On the A320 family the rate is in regards to 12 month. So in 2018 Airbus was on average at 52.2 reaching 54 a month end of the year and delivered 626 frames. This year, 2019, Airbus is further ramping up to 60 frames a month by summer and will be at about 700 frames for the...Jump to post
The 787 will not get to 14 until later this year and the 777 in passenger form will be very low, so they will probably both deliver around 160 passenger widebodies this year, if Airbus can get their act together with the A330. Geoff Also remember Airbus is on 11 month years and Boeing 12. So rate 1...Jump to post

It'll become a park, supposedly. For the time being, the taxpayers are responsible for covering the loss that will be incurred by the early pre-2021 closure of it.

Boeing’s widebody lead this year is likely to be largely due to freighters and military variants. Geoff i mean 787 alone is going to rate 14. a350 is at rate 10, and a330neo is being cut to rate 3.5. so the 787 alone is gonna be outproducing the entire airbus widebody lineup. (a380 production is so...Jump to post
How can there be a race when MAX is grounded ? Boeing is still building MAXs; they are not delivering them. Once the grounding is over (which it will be) there will be a huge “bubble” of deliveries. However, I did read that they are going to cut production from 52 to 42 a month. I presume this is t...Jump to post

LH has the better product, the corporate contracts and easy connections at MUC. When people do their homework on this route, LH comes out as the best option.

AA would have to practically give the seats away for me to even consider them. A nice LH A350 vs a clapped out LUS A333. Not a difficult choice. That's the most blatant mistake AA is making here. Fly both in Business Class, they cost around the same thanks to competition, and it's day and night typ...Jump to post
The other question is with the 737 MAX fall out, they will no doubt be facing financial issue the comming year. Will they bite the bullet and fund the new airplane? Or will they hold of until the situation stabilize? bt they've got plenty of cash. the max crashes wont really change it all that much.Jump to post
At this point, US airlines flying these tattered 763’s anywhere are a disgrace.

Lufthansa's management, like any airline's management, will assess all the options. This will include the MAX when looking at aircraft in that size category. That being said, I think the NEO will have the upper hand, purely from an operational point of view. Commonality with the existing fleet (acr...Jump to post

If it was not for Southwest Boeing would have begun designing a new narrow body aircraft at least ten years ago. I think that WN is certainly an important factor here, but let's not get carried away.

I'm curious as to what is the reason for the limited foreign airlines that serve Pakistan.

Maybe add SQ and CX ...Jump to post

I agree that Oasis is a disaster and a major mistake by AA management - which, of course, is DP.

I'm fairly confident that WN will not be paying a single dime to Boeing until these planes are released and in revenue service. Still not convinced that the MAX will ever be allowed to fly again in certain regions/countries. 2 737s were lost to rudder hardovers in quick succession, and a third near...Jump to post

Not sure what "all the Boeing sagas" are, but the MAX would have nothing to do with a widebody order...
