I suspect that some sort of hybrid plane with a capacity to haul 6-10 people up to 500 miles will be popping up in the next 10 years. And for emergency and semi-emergency 2-5 people 100 miles in the same time frame. I would think so too. The keyword is hybrid, because I do not see a full electric a...Jump to post
The (fish) carrier is about to introduce new colors on its upcoming 737 MAX fleet. If you look closely, Icelandair is rolling out new colors with their 737 Max deliveries. https://twitter.com/jonostrower https://twitter.com/brandonsblog https://imagr.eu/up/saJu3_DT79NvgU8AAVrYg.jpgJump to post
One of the reasons BA didn't order the 747-8i:
IAG's Willie Walsh said British Airways picked A380 over 747-8 in 2007 because of a poor relationship with GE.
The A350 will get the new livery as well:
Lufthansa's first #A350 to roll off the TLS production line wearing the carriers new livery will be D-AIXI
First China Eastern A320neo (MSN 8074) emerged from final assembly. Without CAAC certification for the CFM powered A320neo, this aircraft won't be going anywhere soon. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4701/24925665757_67ddfab5bc_z.jpg F-WWIJ first A320 Neo for China Eastern by @Eurospot , on FlickrJump to post
Does anyone know if both the MAX 10 and the A321neo would have the range to cross the Atlantic launching from a 6500 feet long runway? With a full load of passengers and luggage. Unfortunately Boeing has not yet released ACAP documents for the 737 MAX 10, so this question is difficult to answer rig...Jump to post
2. the 50% is a standard practive for big orders, not just a figure tossed in around a-net, but one you see in the commercial press AND in the financial analysis accessible through the link in the article.

The A380 comes with its other issue which is how many can BA accommodate at LHR. Both T5 and T3 have a very limited number of A380 stands and the BA base has even less. At the moment it is already a change to accommodate the ones they have, even with the new ones replacing B747-400s stands will sti...Jump to post

The U.K. carrier, a unit of IAG SA, has said in the past that it was looking for six to seven second-hand A380s. Instead, it’s looking at new ones, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.

You should study the EK business model. It really is very clever. You mean, those glossy pdfs with "fact" watermarks??

Here's to hoping this means Airbus has a bridge to, and the stomach for, a real effort in this sector next decade. This certainly means no clean-sheet Airbus VLA before 2040; hopefully we'll at least get a new wing in my lifetime. I wouldn't bet on "real effort" next decade. It's pretty c...Jump to post

However it can't be that hard to certify the A380 for winglets as a simple add on? Apparently the wing twist must be changed too, so it's not being offered as simple add on. Maybe we'll see more about it when the order is firmed. It was asked during the press conference today. The order is for the ...Jump to post
But that is a hell of a cut in MTOW. One has to question how it preforms with such a hit.
