Re: United Airlines 787-10 configuration revealed

318 seats - impressive. I thought they would be 30-40 seats more than the B789, like their B789 has about 30 seats more than the B788.

Why not just go for 2-4-2 seating at 34 inch pitch in E+ instead of having both PE and 3-3-3 E+?

Re: Will Delta’s A330neo be a TATL or TPAC plane?

Does the 242T A333 have the same overhead pilot crew rest module that the A359 has?

I think the 251T A339 will be a great plane, I too can see DL convert the deferred A359 orders into the A339 if the A339 can do 90% of A359 routes at 20 tonnes less MTOW.
