Perhaps I missed a footnote in the specs, but has Airbus said that Flex Galleys and Lavs are not avail on the LR version? Doesnt make sense. The airline can still have a 220/240 pax layout but cargo/bags will be limited. Range will be lower but still higher than what airlines would have with the st...Jump to post
So if folks everywhere start upgauging to A321LR.... without really needing the capability..... where will that put the frame's efficiency/fuel burn in relation to the 737-MAX10. I mean, you don't get Flex Galley's and Lavs with the A321LR, so stuffing 240pax is out.... So, you could end up with a p...Jump to post
I am not at all surprised by the runaway success that is the A321NEO (wow 1920). Just an incredible plane. However, the rate at which airlines are adopting the A321LR is simply amazing.Jump to post

Really a nice plane. Lots of capability combined with good efficiency when compared to it's predecessors. (e.g. A340 and 777)Jump to post
Regarding capacity.. 737-MAX10 has a total length of 143', while the 321NEO has a total length of 146', slightly more than a seat row. So 737-10MAX max pax capacity is stated as 130pax, whereas A321NEO is stated as 140pax, certainly more than a seat row. It appears Airbus is doing quite a bit more p...Jump to post
In Nuuk, they will start expansion of their only runway this year at GOH (Nuuk Godthab). Currently, the runway is some 950m or 3000ft in length. The plan is to take it to the max length allowable under the terrain (mountain at one end, sea at the other) of 2200m or 7200ft. This will open up many pos...Jump to post

Most A321s are currently configured around 190 seats; why would the A321neo be any different if it has the same fuselage? A high-density A321neo can carry 240 passengers. True. I should have worded that different. A321 economic advantages are huge if you are in high density config to take advantage...Jump to post
With the 2017 tally includeing the the orderbooks the A321Neo now has 1,920 frames vs 339 for the B737Max 9/10 (combined).

Would Boeing ever consider one more stretch of the E2 platform greater than the 195 (132 @ 31" pitch) to yield 148-150pax @ 31" pitch? A short range 737-7Max/737-700/A319/A320 replacement..... 3 flight attendants, 150 pax, 2000nmi range?Jump to post
The fuel burn on the 328JET is just not good at all...(compare it to the ERJs). The 428JET didn't promise anything that would have corrected that. They wouldn't have survived the high fuel prices that arrived in 2004/2005. Interesting.. had they proceeded with the 728/928, we'd probably be talking a...Jump to post
By the time Boeing needs to replace the majority of it's 511 73G planes, the Leap1B may have seen a Pip or Two. Like many, I agree most will be replaced with the 8MAX.

I goofed earlier... It's Envoy that is bringing 59 ERJ140s back from the desert.
(I'm a fan of the ERJ135 because it's one of the few passenger jets with decent pax capacity that can take off with a fair load from a 5k ft runway.)
Someone will take up those E135s quickly. 58 E140s are being reactivated from the desert at the moment for Compass.
Worldwide, there are very few 135s for sale at the moment. Very different from 2 years ago.
The A320 family is 2.8" wider at shoulder level. So, that 6" difference at the at the cushion becomes 3" at the shoulder on the A320. Although the fuselage of the 737 is narrower, it's more oval, so the seats can be pushed further outboard than the A320, lessening the width disadvant...Jump to post
A lot can happen in 15 years. Also, keep in mind, the 737 is based on the 707 which is a 60 year old design. So, now its a 25 year difference between the two... It has the same width dimensions of the upper lobe of the fuselage and a heavily modified section 41, nothing else. This was done to reuse...Jump to post

Assume that Airbus announces the CS150 and the A320.5 (= 737-8 match) one year after MOM kick-off... Agree fully on the CS500.
