Re: Potential for A321 XLR

85% coverage is quite significant. It explains the popularity quite a lot. The XLR gives airlines an low risk opportunity to play with frequency based on seasonal or trending behavior of passengers on long thick routes. I think it's a bit misleading since no one would suggest XLR will end up with 8...

Re: What are KLM 737 replacement options?

KL will order 737 MAX to replace the NGs. Almost no possibility for an A220/320 series at all. Wont happen. They are as loyal to the 737 as WN and FR are. A320NEO would do the job, and certainly you could make a case for A321/A321XLR in the KL blue but wont happen. They'll likely be into the new MO...

Re: United orders 50 A321 XLR, defers A350's to 2027

Yes, double daily increases the probability of a connection that works from the passenger point of view. And you don't need to lose the 77A, you can just add the XLR to increase frequency with fairly limited risk. Al tough it is easier to fly one type on one route. There are currently aircraft in t...
