Re: Airbus weighs response if Boeing launches new mid-market model

One must not forget that Boeing projects up to 5000 frames for the MoM over its lifetime, this sounds like a lot, but the current orders for the A321 + 737-1000 already reach 2000 frames and that is within a few years after launch of each product. NEO and MAX series combined have already reached ord...

Re: Germany Considers Tornado Replacement

The CH-53 is one of the reasons why the Luftwaffe wants an off the shelf Tornado replacement. Lots of money and time has been wasted on modernizing the old CH-53Gs while hoping for an European heavy lift helicopter to take shape. And today keeping the CH-53Gs in the air is proving to be a constant c...

And end up with something that will be worse than the A321 on short routes and most A321 do not fly TATL.

Re: Airbus Working With Emirates on New Order for Flagship A380

How long does the development of a A380NEO take? Roughly 5 years? If Airbus aims for a A380NEO NET 2022, do they have to start the development now. (2022 = ~15years after the first A380 delivery). The RR Advanced 3 turbine and UltraFan (100k lbf GTF) will most likely in development for several year...

Re: Germany Considers Tornado Replacement

The point is that the Luftwaffe wants to replace the Tornado starting 2025, as studies show that the maintenance costs would skyrocket once you are the only user of the type. In addition by 2040 the numbers of new frames needed in a very short period would be prohibitive, as Tornados and Tranche 1 E...

The A380 has better CASM than the 777 and I'd imagine it would not take a huge update to better the 777X Published independent analyses say A380 retains CASM advantage over 777-9, mostly or entirely due to ownership cost per seat.

Re: Narrowbody order bubble?

Sure there is a bubble as orders exceed traffic growths and replacement needs, with the added catch that high growths requires low fuel prices, which alloes for A320CEOs and 737NGs to fly longer, which reduces the need for NEOs and MAX.
