Re: Why is BRU so underserved to major US hubs?

I don't think that tourism is the most relevant point in this discussion. Of course, tourism can boost the traffic at an airport, but much more is required to make an airport an intercontinental hub than this low yielding traffic. I believe the first contributor to an intercontinental hub is the pre...

Re: Airbus formally list 251t A330neo

The A340-300 had 275T MTOW, so why has it been so difficult to transfer that to the A330-900? Is it mostly due to the A343 having four smaller engines while the A339 has two big ones? Basically, yes. The outboards gave them better bending moment relief for a 1% load delta between the original 257t ...

Re: UBS predicts pilotless cargo flights by 2025

Before getting to pilotless planes, could we imagine windowless cockpits, providing some weight and maintenance savings? Or the cockpit moved in a less premium real estate part of the aircraft, like the belly? The front of the aircraft, with its large forward facing windows could then be used for a ...

Re: Airbus is examining 'A380-Plus'

This again goes to show how vastly overbuilt the A388 is. Its engines are sized for something even bigger than a -900. You don't seem to be aware that the relatively large fan diameter of the A380 engines was driven by noise requirements. These requirements were made tighter in 1999, leading to an ...
