I did read the German report : might well be, but I don't know if Macron ( he has more leverage than the 11% stake ) will let a German head the group without some compensation. I also took the time to explain why ousting Brégier would be very short-sighted, would not be the first time Airbus makes ...Jump to post

I'll say this once : like LEAHY ( see my post ), BREGIER sees further than most corporocrats. And yet Brégier did not see the A350 supply chain issues coming, and yet Brégier is being held responsible for the A320neo ramp-up issues he clearly did not see coming either. Last, knowing how France &...Jump to post
Mr Enders quickly denied that rumor: “Reports of my demise are premature and exaggerated,” he told Reuters on the sidelines of an aircraft delivery ceremony in Toulouse on Wednesday. Of course, as Enders' mandate is ending in 2019 it's quite obvious that he needs a successor. It is therefore not cle...Jump to post

Boeing just kicked Delta regarding the C-Series. Do people really believe that it will be peace, joy and pancakes after that? If Airbus and Boeing will come up with comparable offers, it will be Airbus. If Boeing goes really low they have a chance. I doubt DL would make a decision based on emotions...Jump to post
With all it covers and seals at the doors, it looks like long time storage... any reason for that or was it this way all the time during reworks? Long term storage would look different.

Latest independent analysis by LNC concludes that 737 MAX 10 and A321neo are on pair regarding economics. It wipes the marketing claims of Boeing and Airbus off the table.

And on another topic, I really wish people would let go of this notion that US airlines should only buy US aircraft. It's a 21st century, globalized world. The largest operator of the 737-800 is based in the EU, in Ireland. Is that wrong? Should FR only be flying the A320? :roll: And those A321s, i...Jump to post

Did the aircraft start skidding? How can it end up on the runway like this? According to reports, co-pilot unbalanced the thrust by accident when speeding up at 15:30 local time.
