Even though WN has a fair number of 73Gs in it's fleet (an understatement to say the least), they are going to want to replace those (as some are used birds) in the coming years. They can't move all of those routes that presently take 137/143 seats / 3 flight attendents and boost them to a plane wit...Jump to post
Any additional news on the 10Max development? Seems premature to start asking about it in the Production/Delivery thread as we haven't even had roll-out / first flight. How is the landing gear progressing? Is Spirit building the first fuselage yet? Is CFM testing the boosted Leap-1A for durability /...Jump to post
I haven't read what is the plan that Dallas has? The answer is in the very first post of this thread. In a nutshell, Dallas would grant a carrier a 3 year temporary authority to serve Love Field. The "plan" does not specify where it plans to get the gate space to do that -- which essentia...Jump to post
Boeing orientated press will translate it into a victory non the less, because a target groups appreciates. And no, this isn't the same in the European press. It's Funny. Might be that in this space Airbus has two great families in the A330NEO and A350. Boeing has just the 787. Airbus is such a gre...Jump to post
Nice to see some work at Ithaca, located on the south shore of Cayuga Lake. The airport actually sits high enough to have a view of the lake in the distance. The entire Finger Lakes area is rich with Aviation History with the Curtis Museum being located in HammondsPort on the nearby south shore of K...Jump to post
Folks, I'm really enjoying this thread. It's a bit of a Who's Who Among 737 Operators. Neat to see how airlines dress up the same basic structure. Thanks for taking the time to locate these fotos and posting them. Would be cool if in a few years we could get a foto of a Max7, Max8, Max9 and Max10 to...Jump to post

Poor B6... doesn't anyone believe they stand a chance on their own. The number of merger threads featuring them is incredible. How about B6, F9, NK, G4, HA, AS, SY all merge into a super carrier and they we could all stop talking about WN slowly picking them apart on every single route they fly caus...Jump to post
WN should just buy DAL under the condition they get to expand it to 32 gates. Then they lease out a few of those gates, leaving themselves with 28 or so... 1. There's a better chance of DFW shutting down tomorrow. 2. Even if they did, DAL would still be subject to the same restrictions placed on it...Jump to post

I had a constructive comment on this thread that apparently was deleted by moderators. I suggested the thread could just as easily been titled 'Air Canada accelerates delivery of 5 737-MAX8' and that some posters preferred highlighting negative aspects of news stories and then speculating in an exag...Jump to post
So you all are telling me that my idea to launch an airliner comprised of used 20 pax single class ERJ-135LRs featuring 1+1 seating with 10 rows at 36" pitch is now a bad idea?
deleted. comment above was great!Jump to post
There's nothing like an new airline paint scheme or the naming of an aircraft to cause a.net to get its collective panties in a wad. Absolutely. It's a departure, but I could see it working. Use A200 for the hybrid regional/mainline that the CS occupies... Leave A100 for the true regionals ( the ev...Jump to post
The Sections 44, 46,11 and the Wings have significant differences on the 8 when compared to those on the 9/10 because of the body side of join wing interfaces, correct? I thought this was completely reworked for 9, but those changes did not become part of the 8 build processes. (perhaps the WIng Box...Jump to post
Does the 8 have a different wing body side join arrangement than the 9/10?
What other major differences exist?
By incorporating the Aft of the 9/10 onto the 8, you get the advantages of the laminar flow improvements done there correct?
Sometime soon the world is going to need some modern planes between 19pax and 75pax. Eventually were are going to want to replace all of those ERJ1XXs, CRJX00s, QX00, Saabs, Fockers and Fairchilds… and they can't all be ATR42s and ATR72s.... So do Boeing and Embraer get to work on that some day toge...Jump to post
Stewart's (SWF) in Newburgh, NY is getting some European Flights... and hey, with their 15,000' runway, they'll definitely be able to handle the MAX9 and MAX10. All kidding aside, a friend flew Norwegian out of Stewart last year. I guess Stewart's is even considered a part of the NYNJ Port Authority...Jump to post
Just seems like they should have found a way to get their north country passengers out of Mexico and back home..... what's harder.... book a charter or do damage control..... someone failed to do a proper cost/benefit analysis...Jump to post
I don't blame the passengers for being scared.
I do however blame the media outlet for blowing it out of proportion.
With all of the ERJ-135 threads that I've started, my fondness for the plane is well documented. I think it's awesome that JetSuite is able to pick these planes up still.... again, you just don't see them available like you did a few years back.... Maybe JetSuite has been maneuvering for some time t...Jump to post

This is cool. The company is divided in two: JetSuite which flies 13 Phenom 100s(6pax) and 8 CJ3 (9pax). However, it was announced at the end of 2017 they would replace all CJ3 with Phenom 300s. Don't know if that has happened yet... JetSuiteX operates 5 ERJ135s,... NewUnitedGoderich had a contract ...Jump to post

I think Airbus shelving the A320/A321 NEO PLUS program tells us that Boeing's 797 will in fact be a 787-6 and a 787-7...... We are looking at 757-300 - 767-300ER replacement market here..... which many feel the 787-8 and 787-9 were too big and too capable for..... and where the A359 is too big... an...Jump to post
Would it be worth it to role a few 9/10 changes into the 8 to make more of these 8 campaigns winnable.... as opposed to the big investiment in the 797.. Unless of course the 797 is really just the 787-6, 787-8... and then you have to decide does the 8 follow optimizations of the 6 and 7 or of the 9 ...Jump to post

I think the rewing thing is a bit over simplified here. That won’t be a quick and easy project. Personally, I'm of the thought they've already taken what they've learned from constructing the A350's wing and are well underway engineering the new wing for the A320.5, A321-300 and A322. They will not...Jump to post
When SouthWest Airlines received new planes, where do they go? Do they fly them out of Payne field to a specific Airport (Like Love Field) where SouthWest goes through it's own receiving evaluation?Jump to post
Airliners.Net rumors are awesome!!
It had a tail strike.
It's had it's decals stripped.
They are selling it.
Who knows, perhaps it is just having the equivalent of an oil change?
