In fact, our agreement is structured with maximum takeoff weight provisions that reflect our intended deployment plan to fly the aircraft, on average, on routes that are less than 1000 miles. If we exceed those averages, i.e., the plane needs to carry more fuel because it's flying longer distances,...Jump to post

I think the Lufthansa group could be a good bet, possibly as A319 and E195 replacements at Austrian and Lufthansa. How about some of the regional airlines and contractors though? FlyBe as a Q400 and E195 replacement? Maybe CityJet to cover a number of contracts? Air Nostrum? In another thread it wa...Jump to post
Does Southwest get sole control of the B Pier?Jump to post
For UA, the larger 73G won out over the CS100. In competition, price does play a part. Don’t take this as an endorsement of Boeing’s complaint. I really am ambivalent about it other than having to endure the moaning in these threads. 73G didn't "win" at United. Boeing dumped it and even a...Jump to post
Condor already has a seasonal flight to Frankfurt from Phoenix. It's stopped for the winter at the moment, but will resume in may.

Even with a A359ULR, it's questionable if one has a Y cabin. SQ plans only a J and W cabin. PER to LHR and IAH to SYD are at the edge of the range.

I believe 150 is target goal for the 7M7. That would be accomplished by adding a row of six seats and moving row 11 back to allow a seat by the emergency exit row. However, if the 150th seat triggers additional emergency exits I would question the feasibility of going to 150 vs 149.Jump to post

Let us not forget that Southwest operates 511 73Gs. While a agree the 7M7 will not be a 1 for 1 replacement for the 73Gs, it will be a lot more (7M7) than the 30 airplanes currently on order. The 738/7M8 just doesn't work on certain routes..lugging around an extra 32 empty seats cannot be cheap. On ...Jump to post
There was a comment in the other thread about why certain frames destined for Braathens/BRA were not reassigned. The answer to that would likely lie in earlier airframes having more issues with them than later airframes. Most airlines would not be overly keen at taking an earlier frame if it meant ...Jump to post

Don't know the exact routings for these birds but one used in the past to get a VA E190 there for maintenance was BNE - APW (Apia, Samoa) - HNL - VNY (LA/Van Nuys) - BNA. HNL-VNY is 2600 miles, which is beyond the max range of a E190. So maybe they did have to do some mods, or stop elsewhere. I mig...Jump to post

PHX has no draw, it is not a typical U.S. tourist destination. Besides shopping opportunities, there isn't really anything there. I don't see a flight to South America happening. If access to PHX is desired from South America it would be via California, Texas or Nevada.Jump to post
Isn't T3N being demolished and rebuilt once T3S is open? T3N will be reconfigured but not completely demolished.

I think WN eventually orders 737-10 Maxes, don't think they'd have any trouble filling them Southwest already left the -800 series with the old seat pitch.

Southwest is still acquiring 737-700s used. One from Air China and one from Aeromexico. Southwest will most likely continue flying the 737-700 until they time out and need heavy checks.

Just looked at delta's A321 seat map. With the new door arrangement they could possibly go from 20 - 29 - 143 = 192 to 20 - 36 - 143 = 199 by installing 7 Y+ seats where doors 2 used to be. Or as their 757 highest configuration 20 - 29 - 150 = 199. Does Delta usually have 4 or 5 FA on the A321/757?...Jump to post

For the LD3, it's the most used belly container of the fleet. We use them in everything from the A310 to the 777 (minus the 757).
