Is this naming phraseology along the same lines as JetBlue Mint class? Are we about to see everyone come up with catchy names for their front cabin seats?Jump to post

When did Boeing and B6 talk about 787s? I'm not saying I don't believe you, I'd just like to see some evidence. Re 767s, I mentioned on here like 4 years ago that B6 could do well with some end-of-the-line 763ERs. Not to beat a dead horse, but could Boeing still produce the 764? They seem very clea...Jump to post

Can someone offer a ball park figure on what a Spirt F/O would earn per annum? Generally speaking, it is pay rate per hour multiplied by 1000 for annual gross income.

Forgive me if this has been answered before, but is it possible to switch engine types for a future 320neo delivery? How far in advance would that have to be accomplished? I wonder if we will see anyone go from PW->CFM for their future orders.Jump to post
I agree with pretty much everything you said (as I pretty much always do), though I'm not so certain a F9+NK tie-up is a foregone conclusion. We'll see what happens at the IPO, but if F9 is doing as well financially as they're leading on, there may not be much pressure to sell out right away like w...Jump to post
You are incorrect. The C-Series order is 100% still on the books, although without any production slots. This is pure speculation, but with all 3 majors having ownership in the new company, I'd almost guarantee that these planes end up at either AA, DL, or UA. Ahh, ok.

JetBlue is undergoing a fleet review and making lots of comments about the E190s need to go.

E190 is not only about smaller markets. As mentioned, E190 features prominently in business markets. At DCA, 25 of the 30 daily flights are on the E190. If JetBlue ditches the E190, will JetBlue be able to fill A320s or might it try to sell (not sure if the slots they have allow it) a slot or two? ...Jump to post

Hardly comparable. PTP/FDF have about 2 million PAX each and it is long-haul from Paris.

I suspect crew rest on a narrowbody will be limited to first/business class seats. That should be sufficient for 8-10hr flights with augmented crews.
A designated crew bunk area would be a waste of space considering many narrow bodies will be doing shorter haul domestic routes as well.
You get what you pay for.
