Re: USA Gun Laws - My Opinion, what's yours?

There is nothing that says, that you must own a gun to hunt animals. The constitution makes it quite clear that the guns are to be used to defend the country and the constitution from any threat.

Re: A319neo: will it enter into service or not?

U2 has 254 aircraft split roughly 50/50 A319/A320. Expect that they will not be happy about having a split A320/CS fleet. Given they were previously Boeing customers, there views may carry more weight. Just because you currently have a fleet, does not mean you want to keep that fleet. U2 could easi...

It makes interesting option for a re-winged A320.

You could go with an A320+ (1 extra row) - A321 - A322 and have the CSeries cover the market below. Imho the change of a A321 stretch with a new wing has hugely increased today.
