Re: Boston aviation - 2018

Flying out of BOS this morning and just saw the morning BA BOS-LHR depart. Was a 744, though I know they’ve operated the 772 & 789 as well. How does this flight do overall for loads? Does the fact it’s a 744 in winter mean it’s typically a busy flight? My boss flew out last week and had the ent...

Re: Possible Delta A321neo TATL Service?

I'm pretty sure that is far out of range even of an A321LR. At 3,850nm it should be well within the range of the A321LR, especially as DL would not have it as a full Y at capacity. My bad, then I guess the neo couldn't make it. Does Delta have any LR's on order? DL only has NEOs on order, no LRs yet.

The HGW A321 is too much of a bandaid for a long term solution. The plane has plenty of power, but needs a new wing. Most A321CEO's cant climb above 29,000-31,000 initial at high weights. This hurts efficiency greatly. Loading up the belly with fuel isn't sustainable either, new wings should be des...
