RE: Classic Aircraft 40 Years From Now

The A32X, 737, 747, 757, and 777 will definately be a classic aircraft flying 40 years from now, and I would argue there will still be A330s around, too. A340s will be rare, and the A380 will probably be viewed as a bit of a white elephant (not intended as A vs. B bait, but an honest opinion).

RE: Horizon Air: Looking At The EMB-190

My bet is QX will go CRJ900 for fleet commonality, but I would rather see the jungle jets for greater passenger comfort. The Bombardier aircraft are very good aircraft, they are just a little cramped for me.

RE: Aircraft That Made Aviation History

The 727 should also be added, it was the first practical jetliner capable of using smaller airfields (runway < 5000 feet) that were inaccessible to the other jets of the day. This was a huge step in bringing air travel to the masses, 737 just did it with much better economics on thinner routes (but ...
