Re: Boeing 737MAX Production/Delivery Thread 2018

Apologies if someone has answered this question before.... Will the Max10 fuselages be transported by rail in one piece or is it too long now? It shouldn't be an issue.

Re: E2 MRJ Scope Clause Thoughts

If the US major airlines really needed the new E2 or MRJ they would make a deal with the mainline pilots. And without a doubt, such a deal would very heavily favor the pilots. With most of the large RJ's being fairly new, there is no hurry to make such a deal. Also, the pilot shortage issue comes in...

Re: How Far can the AA MAX Fly?

GCM lists MIA-ANC as 4003nm, Boeing advertises the range of the Max8 as 3515nm. So no, we won't see the Max8 on that route. Now, DFW-ANC at 3043nm is doable possibly with some seasonal restrictions northbound.
