Will LH Group consider densifying the A319s flying for CityLine? They currently have 138 seats and 144 is max with one pair of overwing exits, so they can either tighten the pitch in the forward part of the cabin and remove closets to add one row, or space-flex the aft galley and add one row where t...Jump to post
Are CRJs, E-jets, A220, Superjet etc exempted as their MTOW is lower than the B737s and A32X?Jump to post
Only if BA bring back free food and drink service on European and domestic flights, they can be considered as premium airlines. Otherwise, BA would remain an expensive budget airlines for travelling within Europe and the UK. I'm flying BA tomorrow, for the first time in 15 years. I'm flying OSL-LHR...Jump to post

Just checked FR24 and UA is no longer using their MAX 9 on IAH-ANC, which was about 7,5 hours with 179 pax. Has demand simply dropped off because summer is kinda over or were there issues with using the MAX 9 on such a long flight? The UA MAX 9 are doing Hawaii now, which is about 5,5 hours westboun...Jump to post
Has Boeing secretly beefed up the MAX 9? These flights are 3,500nm and longer - other airlines will certainly keep an eye on this development. I have always had a soft spot for the 900/900ER/MAX 9 and now MAX 10, and if the 9 and 10 can be tweaked like the A321NEO, I think many airlines will convert...Jump to post
This is a vote of confidence in the Q400 90 seater.

Nice to read that the A319 is still wanted by some airlines, I have always liked the A319 and think I'll be flying them with British Airways next month - in their new 143/144-seat C/Y layout. I didn't know AA had such a huge A319 fleet, I thought perhaps 30-40 aircraft... do they have specific route...Jump to post
I assume the A321NEO will be the new flagship of the easyJet fleet, so might as well make the best impression with them from the start. Pleather looks more luxurious than cloth, many thinks.Jump to post
Here in Scandinavia there have been several reports on TV news and articles in newspapers about Spaniards being sick and tired of tourists, especially in Barcelona and Mallorca, and many people have decided not to visit Spain this year but try something new.

BBD has sold 634 Q400 so it's not a complete failure, I'd say. BBD has sold 1,300+ Dash 8 and ATR has sold 1,700+ so that makes more than 3,000 turboprops from those two OEMs alone - and most of them are in busy active service every day. SpiceJet already have 24 Q400 with 78 seats each. The first 15...Jump to post

Is this the first production aircraft A321NEO with the new exit configuration (overwing exits and relocated L/R3)? Looks nice, looking forward to see interior pics and videos. Looks like it has two galley units in the front (first window missing after R1)... or is it a lavatory? easyJet will probabl...Jump to post

When BBD launched the Atmosphere cabin they stated it was most suited for the CRJ900 and CRJ1000 (implying the CRJ700 is too small to all these upgraded galleys and two-class cabins, me thinks). I think BBD should launch a high-density CRJ1000 with 110 Y slimline seats @ 29 inch pitch. It will then ...Jump to post
Boeing's own seatmap for the B737 MAX 8-200 shows every seat at 28 inch pitch when having 200 seats.

So far, SQ has 337 seats in their B787-10 and UA have confirmed they will have 318 seats in theirs - this will reduce range somewhat. Will be very interesting to see BA's version - if they copy the -8 and -9 layouts, their -10 will have 240-250 seats at most, allowing lots of range... but we keep he...Jump to post
These will be configured with 70 seats similar to the E175SC to avoid scope limitations On Delta's seat map of this aircraft it looks like there is one row missing in the back of the cabin, like an empty space between the last row and the aft windscreen. Is it really like that? On the CRJ900, the a...Jump to post
Allegiant bought quite a few ex-SAS MD80s - I heard from several SAS employees that G4 was quite keen on getting these birds because they had excellent maintenance records and would be good for years to come.

AA ordered 15 (+15) CRJ900 with the new cabin in May and now DL with 20 aircraft, so potentially 50 new CRJ900 - nice boost for the CRJ production line.
With only 70 seats, they might take them as lowest-MTOW aircraft to cut down on charges that are weight-related?
The "United hybrid" aft galley you speak of has been used by a few airlines - with a large(ish) lavatory and a galley with four full-size carts on the back wall. Air Caledonian - later BA - A320-100, Air France A318, easyJet A319, Cebu Pacific A319... The downside with this config is that ...Jump to post
300 aircraft is impressive. I find easyJet to be a bit anonymous, though, compared to FR, DY, Wizz - no scandals or naughty tactics - they're just growing quietly. They may not need to grow the number of aircraft much if they replace A319 with 186-seat A320 and 235-seat A321 - the seat increase alon...Jump to post

It strikes me that they’re on the ground a long time in OTP & ZAG, between 3hrs45 & 4hrs15. I wonder are they building in some wiggle room in case of delays Smart move, I say.

Trip reports about the UA MAX 9 are starting to appear on youtube. Looks like the F and Y seats are slimline versions without PTVs, which should save about 400kg in weight. Noticed a lovely slimline lav behind row 5AB too. Do UA have the aft flat pressure bulhead on the 900ER and MAX 9 or did they d...Jump to post

Why would they get rid of the A330s and not just expand or increase service?!? The A333 for both Caraïbes and Bee have 354/378 seats, while the Caraïbes A359 have 389 seats and the Bee A359 has 411 seats. It's not a huge increase in seats and the A359s capabilities and economics are probably a lot ...Jump to post
The Thai Lion Air B737 MAX 9 has 215 seats and seem to operate from various airports in Thailand without too much ado, so the MAX 9 can't be all that bad...
With those big LEAP engines, I think the MAX 9 looks better proportioned than the MAX 8.
Regarding AF, it seems the A320 replacement is the biggest, next to 318/319s (CSeries seems a serious option). Replacing the large, aging A320 fleet with a same size A320NEO after 30 years seems not optimal. The A321NEO is a given, but a bit large for 1:1 replacement of all A320s. I always expected...Jump to post
