Re: Thai Airways on the market for jets, looking at 777X, A350

TG doesn't need the 777X. Their oldest aircraft are the non-ER 772s en 773s, so I wonder why they aren't looking at the 787-9/10. More A350s would also make sense.

Re: Lufthansa: decision, which planes will be replaced by B777-9 in summer 2019

When compared to BA and AF/KL, I think it is fair to say that LH plays it rather intelligently.... Why? Because 2 years before delivery they still don't know whether to equip a new aircraft with first class or not? No, because they are in a position to adjust to ever-changing market demands. Swappi...

Re: Etihad to cancel a "significant amount" of A350 Order according to Aviation Analyst

Will be interesting to see which A350s are cancelled. I think that will tell us more about the fate of the 77X. In any event, on the widebody front, EY should take delivery of 787s first and defer everything else. The 787-9 could fly every widebody route in their network in a pinch. The same is not...

Nothing is set in stone at LH. They change their plans quite often, which, although very confusing and difficult to follow, helps them staying flexible in ever changing market dynamics. Carsten Spohr had said that he might need more A350s and less 777-9 but he hasn´t followed up to that claim and o...

Please don't look at the new Beluga then :rotfl: Ah, but that's not a mask but a dolphin smile! :D Looks kinda cute :P Not that it wasn't already dead, but the A220-300 just sealed the A319NEO's fate. Well not totally dead, a few months...

Or -600, Airbus seems to like that one :P Hopefully...
