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... I-81, I-90, I-84, I-87, I-88. I guess the idea is it is quite accessible and you basically avoid all of the NYC traffic....Jump to post
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

The MOM will be a carbon fibre A310. After watching a video explain how the 757 has changed the way airlines think. So many MOM discussions talk about a plane the size of the A310 or 757-300. Yet: 757-300 sales 55 A310 sales 255 Even if you include the 200 series planes in the 757 number, you are s...Jump to post
Customers are going to dig watching the unfolding wings through those large windows and then the rumble of those huge engines as the plane sets up for take-off. I think we will see some buzz about that. Don't know if that is enough of an experience differentiator for customers to really boost flight...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
There are many pictures of this aircraft out on the net.... Outside only... Though honestly I am very curious to see if it has the 1+1 16pax shuttle config. What I find interesting is the fairing around the wingroot is so large compared to other ERJ-135s. Why is that? AIRCRAFT Brazil - Air Force Emb...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.
Thanks for the info, I will correct the info in the document that I created as a basis for the original posts.
I think it's a stretch to say that the ones listed under the "Large Regionals" section in the OP are separate airlines. With the exception of Silver Airways, all of them operate under the regional banners for UA, AA, DL, or AS. Of those, all of them except for Air Wisconsin are owned in p...Jump to post

an airport between Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska would have perhaps been better than the two separate airports of Eppley (OMA-20 gates) and Lincoln (LNK-4 gates). the two cities are less than 50 miles apart. although omaha is greater in size, lincoln is the state capital. note: Lincoln's does double du...Jump to post

if you're route doesn't routintely sell more than 150 seats, why pay for the 4th flight attendant and the extra steel. There are routes where costing out and flying a 150pax plane makes more sense than that with 175 seats. In the case of SouthWest for instance, for many years they made good money on...Jump to post
The 8MAX was created as a direct re-engine of the 800. the 800 was in fact a stretch of the 700. The 7MAX has now become a shrink of the 8MAX. This shrink is minor, which means the 7MAX is longer than the 700 it replaces in the lineup. With the 4th generation 737, the 8MAX is treated as the baseline...Jump to post
Nothing official but I heard CFM managed to get 31K for the -10 and the gear should help the 10 get a larger rotation angle. I read something similar too, that the -10 will get a thrust bump after all... CFM-56 on 737-900ER has a thrust of 28.4k Leap-1B on 737-9MAX has a thrust of 28.0k So a boost ...Jump to post

I agree and this will be a immensely efficient, modern and competitive family that at the moment has practically no competition from Airbus except the A350. I can agree to that statement.

The problem with WN ordering the 737-9 and 737-10 is that two of their hubs are at MDW and HOU. Both airports have shorter than average runway. 900ER really needs about 7500' to takeoff w/ good pax load and fuel (esp for my transcon scenario). Haven't heard anything about the 9MAX changing that. I ...Jump to post
Regarding the 10MAX, i could see WN ordering it. Seriously. 200 pax at comfortable 32/33" pitch, 4 bathrooms, 4 flight attendants, long cross country trunk routes. You are talking about 25 (14%) more seats than the 8MAX. There are probably allot of routes where that makes sense. Look at lengths...Jump to post
