I'm in the camp that roots for American "doing United". I see American increase the order for A350-900 to replace all of its 777-200ERs with options for larger -1000 as an eventual replacement for its 777-300ERs as well.Jump to post
...and some people still want United to cancel their A350 order.

I'll open the can of worms, what the hell...
United will eventually replace their 777-300ERs with A350-1000, in due time. Now - go ahead. Hate me all you want, Boeing cheergirls. xD
How about just flying the flag of Norway, and maybe Ireland on the tail since Norwegian Air is NOT in any way an American air carrier. After all, United, Delta and American don't need gimmicky tail schemes to convince Europeans that they are something they are not. Obviously, you don't get the poin...Jump to post

There's a picture on Twitter showing CS300 with Delta logo.
The 4 additional 77W's will bring UA's fleet up to 18 which casts doubt on whether UA will take delivery of all 35 A35J's currently on order.

The writing was on the wall the minute Boeing launched 777-300ER. People, it's time to MOVE ON.
Your "queen" is DEAD.
I am laughing at Leahy's comment on 240 seats on a narrowbody. How many airlines are lining up for this really bad option for the consumer. Boarding and deplaning would take forever thereby damaging operating times. Take a wide body like a B767 type over a narrowbody that long. This plane would be ...Jump to post
Boeing's own b*tching turned against them. Maybe they will finally stop complaining and get their @$$es back to work and start designing real airplanes, not "updating" obsolete 737s.
Because the only way Boeing can sell planes is by giving them away cheap, right. :roll: Thanks for that input John, I mean keesje. Well, Boeing did sell 737s to United at a dumping price before, so they're likely to do that again. Not just cheap, Keesje implied that the 737-10 upgrade is free. I ho...Jump to post

Is there any possibility for a 747-8 SP?
I don't know if that's quite right. The 764 made more sense for existing 763 operators and the 332 made sense for existing 333 operators. It's not like BA or NH bought the 332 over the 764; they just did not purchase an aircraft of that rough size (the 772 fleets of both no doubt had an impact). In...Jump to post
The 767-400ER was built as a result of a joint request by DL and CO to replace their L-1011 and DC-10 fleets, respectively. As a result, the 767-400ER was basically built to DL and CO specs, not the rest of the industry. Nothing could be much farther from the truth. The 767-400 was built by Boeing ...Jump to post
So, per Boeing's logic, it's OK to sell 737s at dumping price. But if Bombardier does the same for CSeries, it's "unfair", "unjust", "not right"...
Pot. Kettle. Black.
Go Bombardier! Fight the fight!
1. You have no idea who is actually interested in the MAX 10. I do, actually. It's all over Twitter with links to legit media sources. 2. It'll be nearly a decade before a clean sheet debuts - plenty of time to get a return on the MAX 10. Per United and Udvar-Hazy, EIS for NMA/MOM is 2025, if launc...Jump to post
Fair comparison. A A321 with 2 tanks carries roughly as much fuel as a 737 with one tank. And the range advantage in this configuration should go to the 737, more so if you look at a configuration without extra tanks. The data shown looks great. 5% lower trip costs and 5% lower CASM is a big advant...Jump to post
Who would want to post the usual BS from Tinseth... Fact is that Boeing must work on getting the darn thing off the ground first. A321neo owns the market right now, whether good 'ole Randy likes it or not. This is 767-400 happening all over again. Waste of time, money and resources. Bring on the NSA...Jump to post

There's near 200 747-400Fs in service. 50% of that would see 100+ orders of 747-8Fs, you see that much scope for further production? Enter the 777-300ER passenger-to-freighter conversion programme. It WILL happen, and it's not a question of "if" but "when". And no, the majority ...Jump to post
About those 40x 777-9X: I'm willing to bet that it's going to be a combination of firm orders and options. Options will later be converted to firm orders and delivery deferred a few times until 777-300ERs are due for replacement. Keep in mind those 300+ 777-8/-9 Boeing has scheduled for delivery now...Jump to post
My take on future 787 developments? Probably re-engine around 2030 or so, after NMA and NSA are done. The airframe has a potential to last as a production model for another 30 years, at least. I personally hope Boeing brings back wingtip extensions orignally planned for the 787-9, before all program...Jump to post
