Saying that more value gets exported than imported is not the same as saying a plane has 100% US content. Yep, you have hit the nail on the head their buddy. Your statement is 100% correct. Unfortunately your comments are only vaguely related to what Amiga500 & I actually said. :lol: I think I ...Jump to post
Is there a reason why we are not seeing this design being used in newer airplanes? I remember watching a documentary once and they said the design is desirable due to the wings have the cleanest surface. Of course with the engines mounted at the rear I imagine the fuselage would have to be signific...Jump to post
No, that's incorrect (and ridiculous to suggest that a plane could have >100% any content). What is important to the US in this argument? Whether the Canadians are dumping raw materials from other countries into the US (how dare they pollute the land of the free), or whether the Canadians are takin...Jump to post
Airframer estimates CS100 has 55% US components, 36% just from UTC. I think in dollar terms these percentages will be even higher. They'll definitely be even higher if BBD is taking a loss on the frame (which won't be passed on to those suppliers). Theoretically, it'd be possible for the first CS10...Jump to post

The only reason 30 seaters are better is when a 70 seater can't be filled. One of the stories here (especially in Brazil one would think) is economic growth. There are more customers now, so no more little planes. What I am trying to say is that yeah, 70 seaters are more labor efficient than 30 sea...Jump to post

The meal changes basically went from two hot choices to one hot one cold. Only domestically. I think yes, they need to increase the paid F rate.

I'm very partial to Boeing and grew up a mile from the Renton Boeing plant. However, I love the Giants-branded A321 -- Boeing made a huge mistake by not anticipating the need for a 757-sized jet right now. Yes, the ever-stretched 737 MAX may come close, but the A321 actually feels more comfortable ...Jump to post
Ummm plain white tail? I hope they throw in either the Virgin logo or the Alaska Man on it. This looks very "naked".

Their oldest 777s just got a new interior configuration a year or so ago for domestic service. What will UA do to replace that capacity?

This is a compensation discussion by proxy. It is not about whether these airplanes are in regionals or mainline. it is ALL about how much the pilots for them get paid.

Another duplicate thread on this was already locked.
The A318 offers no cost advantage compared to the larger planes in the series. In fact, because its engines are different (no IAE version available, only CFM or PW6000 were offered), it could very well be more expensive for JetBlue. Also, while the A318 may have no orders, it was built on the same a...Jump to post

! The 777X probably won't sell much in North America. AC, along with AA, are the only two carriers I see getting it. Sorry for being slightly off topic, but why do some folks see AA and only AA as a good US 777X candidate? They didn't even have anything larger than the 777-200 until a couple years ...Jump to post
Why on earth would anyone want to shrink a CS100? It would never get down (at least, not efficiently) to a size/weight that would qualify it for regional jet scope, and I don't see how a shrink could be measurably cheaper to operate than the standard size.Jump to post

Your memory is incorrect. Midwest never flew any jets with 1-1 seating. The Beech 1900 had 1-1 seating, but it’s hardly what one would call luxurious or business class or anything of that sort.
Their first regional jets were the 328s, with 2-1 seating, then the CRJs with 2-2.
What's all this talk about 1-1 seating? Other CRJs that offer an F cabin offer 1-2 seating. Going to all 1-1 seating means, starting out, you're at essentially a max 50% load factor. Add in extra legroom, and you're talking a CRJ (already one of the most inefficient jets from a cost perspective) wit...Jump to post
Part of the reason the DC-3 still flies today because it is an unpressurized aircraft, and thus does not suffer the long-term effects of repeated pressurization cycles that affect nearly all airliners since. I'd also guess that because there were so many of them built in a relatively short period o...Jump to post
