Re: Airlander 10 gets full-production go-ahead

Given current helium shortage - which may or may not be resolved - planning on obtaining enough gas for mass production is very brave. There isn't a helium shortage, its an artificial problem.

Re: Big 3 (AA,DL,UA) Regional Airlines -2019

Does Delta's consolidation mean their regional fleet is going to shrink? If so could that be related to the A220 starting soon? It does not, it simply means there will be fewer carriers operating the airplanes. Of the 2 carriers rumored to be going away, they own none of the airplanes, as they're e...

Ok so a follow up. Apparently, DL's scope is 102 70-seates and 153 76 seaters. Per the table in this thread, DL currently flies 120 70 seaters and 223 76 seaters. Comments? Corrections?


102+153 was the cap before DL added the 91 717s.


Correct, the 76 seat limit is now 223 large RJ's.
