Welcome to the a.net board of armchair experts. We have CEOs/maintenance/pilots/FAs all with zero experience but happy to share their opinions as if they were in those positions.

Have you been to Mozambique? 200Km is a half day's travel by car. Thank you for including that bit of reality.

Quite often th...Jump to post
320-340 shorthaul asian people hauler? Boeing already has that...its called the 787-10. A 340pax 7810 is not going to have long haul capabilities...this is your high density asian shuttle... Develping the MOM for that space would be redundant.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. I'd go a step farther and say that the stretched A320.5 will also have a new carbon fibre wing.. as will the A321... and the stretched A322 (launched to fend off the lower ...Jump to post

Getting rid of the longest runway? Sounds dumb to me. Can't they just paint a couple of yellow x's and call it good. It's going to bite them in the ass when they need it later.

I'm going to play devil's advocate. I spent all of my 20s and a bit of my 30s in Upstate NY. In the 1990s, the Albany County Airport which served the Capital District (Albany New York is the State Capital), received a much needed overhaul and a new name. The new terminal was gorgeous, the parking ga...Jump to post
well. I don't want to go all Martha Stewart on you all... but I like the color of the cockpit... It's kind of a Charcoal / Clay / Pewter / White Ashes combo. Not as cold and harsh as the pure Grey/Silver/Black or as dated as pure Brown/Tan/Cream looks..
I like it.
I do see risk with Frontier. Their route network has frequently been changing. There is not much stability, which makes it really hard to know where they can put 200 more airplanes. They are adding like 85 routes. They don't advertise all the routes that they are cancelling, but in recent threads w...Jump to post

Congradulations to Airbus and Boeing.. However, I'm just going to type the following.. Airshow announcements (LOI, MoU, Orders) are all weird. Look at the Press Airbus has enjoyed for this ONE order by CDB for more than 3 years..... (an unannounced taker in 2014 for 45 planes.... 2017 in Paris, CDB ...Jump to post
I see quite a bit of disbelief being echoed about this order by a holding company with control of several growing airlines. It wasn't that long ago that folks were mocking LionAir 739 orders. Perhaps it reflects that buying power is shifting and folks aren't ready for it. Big wealthy airlines have b...Jump to post
Wow. That's an amazing order. Clearly frontier is planning to go head to head with the likes of WN and Spirit with this order. 201 new NEOs received over 8 years, is 25 per year, or a new plane every 2 weeks for the next 8 years. Even if 73 of the 201 were replacements for existing planes, then they...Jump to post

large capacity difference between between the A359ULR and the 777-8
what are the loads on the routes they plan to use them on?
The two charts taken together paint a different picture. They were previously to take 25 7max and 30 8max. Now they are taking 23 7max and 20 8 max. This looks like a conversion of 2 7max and 10 8max to yield the new 12 10max planes... The 10 9max planes are just droppped. Add it all up there are 10...Jump to post

If you are coming from the North... you don't even have to cross the TappenZee. Many in the Upstate Region don't mind the long drive... You have lots of good feeder interstates...

So Embraer wants to build a Me Too Q400 competitor? Yawn.
I'd find addressing the worldwide aging fleets of aircraft that seat between 30 - 60 to be more interesting.
Truthfully, I'd like to see someone do a new 19pax (max without a flight attendant) prop as well.
I suggest as a starting point you visit Wikipedia and build a table with all the basic/common specifications available. Then post that table as the basis for the discussion. It will keep the responses more accurate.Jump to post
I would hesitate in saying Embraer has expertise in turbo-props. The EMB-120 entered service in 1985. The last one came off the assembly line in 2001. The vast majority if not all people that worked on it are gone. A lot of new learning will be needed to pull off another turbo-prop. From about 2007...Jump to post

It only seems that way because you can't make out the sharks, due to video quality.
It would seem if Scope doesn't change, that Bombardier becomes the default Regional supplier with an optimized 76 pax CRJ800. Honestly, I've fully expected that Bombardier would eventually launch CRJ600 (an upgrade to the 200 w/ more capacity that would share more with the 1000) and a CRJ800 (an upg...Jump to post

Hawaiian 737 was a typo on my part.. I meant 767.... As someone mentioned earlier, I omitted the A332 as well. I wish I could go back and edit/correct the original posts, but I cannot.
