While Boeing is paying record dividends to its stockholders Airbus wants to renegotiate it's payments on previous launch aid. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/10/21/airbus-seeks-cut-repayments-government-controversial-launch/ What has a record dividends by Boeing got to do with this?

You have mentioned it a couple of times but what do you mean by 'island'?
Do you mean 'Ireland' as in the country?
Apologies if I am being dense, but how many total used Airbus narrowbodies is United taking and when are they all due to be flying revenue flights? All of these used Airbus aircraft are coming from China, correct? I read somewhere that United is considering AirBerlin A319/20s? Is that a serious rum...Jump to post
Seattle Business Journal seems to think United could be getting a sweetheart 767 deal as a stopgap to keep them from going to Airbus until the 797 is designed. https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/news/2017/10/19/boeing-767-production-increase-everett-united.html Pretty far fetched to me.

There has been no announcement. I have merged the U2 and AB agreement to be announced Friday thread into this one.

Well, you can always get your 737NG with SFP kit.

I would expect that solved the problem.
Hopefully LH will be able to oversee their complicated pilot situation. At least for the customer it stays simple, seeing only LH and EW, so from a marketing perspective there seems to be no problem. We have classic LH mainline. Then the A 340s operated by Cityline under LH brand. EW operated by AB...Jump to post
Like what other posters said, I think it's definitely not a sure thing yet. Delta is a buyer that is well-known to be price-sensitve. If Boeing offers a killer-price which Airbus is not willing to match, it will be a no brainer for DL. But with all the recent top-up orders for A321CEOs, the momentu...Jump to post

Here it is another, updated, article:

Well the current focus of MAB is North Asia (China, Korea and Japan) and that market is perfect for the A330-900. However CEO Bellew did note at the 787-9 MoU signing that MH was considering restarting terminated services to AMS, CDG and LAX as well as new services to SFO and JFK. AMS and CDG seem ...Jump to post
Let us not also forget that the six A350-900s incoming are leased frames designed specifically to replace the A380-800 services to LHR. I expect the engines are under RR TotalCare maintenance contracts and would not be surprised if the airframes are covered by non-MAB maintenance contracts, as well...Jump to post

Nobody can deny that the development is bad for the customer, however any party was free to overbid LH for the AB ops. Short term yes, medium to long term other carriers have the possibility to open up new domestic routes. I know airports like DUS are having issues with free slots, but in this very...Jump to post
I agree. It offers unrivalled comfort in economy and no noticeable difference in Business to the 787. It won't do routes of the length the 787-9 can do but then the A350 can do that and MH already have A350 on order with delivery imminent. I can see the NEO getting a solid footing in the Malaysia-N...Jump to post
I have not seen any official seatmap of the 787-10 for SQ besides mentioning the new regional C class. Was it confirmed that they will be 9 abreast in Y? I know this is just cabin talk but when I flew SIN-AMS on A359 I was asking the flight manager about the A359 and his opinion about it. He said gr...Jump to post
The linked story in the post above by ap305 makes clear, why MH leased the six A330 from Air Berlin - to buy time. The last sentence is interesting. Bellew also said the proposed longer-range version of the A330neo could be “an interesting aircraft”. Well an MOU is just an MOU and no firm order. Le...Jump to post
Looks like we're back to square one with this new bridge loan. The government will likely acknowledge no company wanted to take AZ as a whole and launch a new sale offer to delay any decision until after the elections in spring. I feel like a cynic, but that "loan" shows that AZ won't be ...Jump to post
Did they order with APU or just Prop-Brake? I hope they ordered APU, after learning how the prop brake works I am no fan of it Is empire not a major operator? Genuine question.

Rome, Berlin and Amsterdam might get (re) connected. SYD, MIA.. BER? Before they ever operate BER they are joining NH at DUS. This route had been operated in the past.

And also to clarify before someone corrects. IAG have ordered both CFM and P&W for A320neo family aircraft. BA, IB and EI will have CFM and Vueling will take the P&W engines. Is this simply IAG hedging its bets, or is there a cost-effectiveness rationale? I think it's all to do with current...Jump to post

It's easy to slam those criticizing Hawaii as a destination, but proof is in the pudding. Why aren't there operators rushing to set this up? It's obvious the demand isn't there. It's not that Hawaii doesn't offer enough that's unique. It certainly does. But I would argue cost is a major deterrent. ...Jump to post
