So I did some digging and situation is probably worst than I anticapted. 1. The current ferry is schedule is highly inefficient. Currently, the sole operating fast ship (T&T Express) takes four hours to make the journey between Scarborough and Port of Spain. It makes a staggering ONE roundtrip p...Jump to post
Any further deliveries expected soon? Only one delivered to SWISS so far this month. In addition, is anyone aware of who the next operator of the CSeries will be, after SWISS, AirBaltic and Korean? EgyptAir Express has signed an order during the last Dubai show. According to Wiki the following oper...Jump to post
I highly suspect it's LH (Group). If the pilot deal goes through (currently in ballot), they need to expand the KTV flying (overall), while it's partly shrinking, as the 4U part is moved to EW. So they need aircraft. Also the number kind of makes sense. It could be the 30 options and the one ntu by...Jump to post
Does AC wet-lease planes from W8 or just buy capacity as needed? I think that would be determining factor whether they go back to a dedicated cargo fleet. Some of AC passenger jets may not be able to absorb the cargo carried on current AC Cargo (Cargojet) routes. I'm pretty sure Boeing would be happ...Jump to post
Does this mean that the 737 MAX is replacing the A321 on MIA-POS? I actually enjoyed the A321s. i think so, i looked at aa.com and the a321 is not listed on the route after Feb. 18. I think its safe to say the A321s are being replaced by the 7M8 on the route It also appears that UVF is getting the ...Jump to post

It'll never happen. Pilots screw up. We make mistakes. We overlook things. We often joke that the reason there are two of us is so that between us both you can assemble at least one good pilot. Removing a pilot removes the most substantial error check we have. There's not a single flight that goes ...Jump to post
I highly doubt its LH. I don't think they would waste time with LOI. They have the numbers they need to go straight to an order in my opinion.Jump to post

Seeing as NZ has never had an Airbus widebody, this seems like it's in the bag for the 777X. I personally hope it's the -8 because the 200 appears to me on the stubby side, and the 300 on the long side, with the -8 length in the happy medium, but only NZ really knows what aircraft truly fits their ...Jump to post

Did HA opt for bulk loading or LD3s? Very beautiful livery on this 321. Not sure if there is another livery in the world that looks more stunning on an A321.Jump to post
Well, everyone will talk on how the party was depending on how he felt. Being the first airline to hire an African American pilot, it's pretty much off limits to accuse AA of "racism". t's absurd to attack an airline of racism just because you were too sensitive or on a bad mood. But as 7...Jump to post

Out of Interjet's 55 destinations, 10 of them are in the United States that's a measly 5.5%.

I can see WN, AS or DL purchasing Island Air and operate it as a subsidiary. AS would probably be better suited given the ASL (Horizon) vast experience with Q400. I could see DL moving a few 717s to Hawaii once the C-Series comes online. HA needs some competitionJump to post

I disagree about jetBlue. Embraer isn't just going to sit by and let Airbus/BBD just skip away with one of their biggest customers without a fight. My money is still on the E195-E2. B6 only has 25 E190-E2s on order...and those are from converted E190s that B6 kept delaying.The C-series is a better ...Jump to post
Bombardier tried (or still tries?) to sell its CRJ/Q400 lines, though nobody seem to be interested. Something will have to happen, Bombardier neglected its CRJ/Q400 products for a long time and it doesn't sell in large numbers anymore. However for the CRJ. As we all know the e175-e2 is currently ov...Jump to post
How does B6 dump their remaining E190 orders though? Also, Jetblue has no A319s. Do they need something in that size category with the CS300?

Everyone is a winner in this deal; BBD, Airbus, Quebecois, Canadians and Americans. Except of course Boeing. Boeing sure got shafted by the Trump shenanigans.

One of the thing always mentioned is the fact that the USAF has a large dedicated tanker fleet and a large cargo fleet, so the need for a multi-role tanker is minimal compared to other countries, ok, I get that. Now without having to review all the old tanker threads, the reason for the a/c to have...Jump to post
Just to clarify, the A330 has too much wingspan to move the same quantity of cargo on the same ramp. This is why the 777X has folding wingtips and I'd be surprised if the MoM doesn't. Otherwise, modern wings take up an uneconomical amount of real estate. Lightsaber Besides range, what other efficie...Jump to post

I think it's for WN to become more comfortable with the LEAP engine before sending them on ETOPS routings.

In the DL's pilot contract are 76 seaters and 70 seaters looked at as two different things?
