I think a top up order for the 787 is pretty much in the bag for Boeing, it will probably bigger then just the 10 options they currently hold. Anything else, we'll see.

l/n 1567 is the non-flying testbed. Incorrect. The frame details were already posted on the 777X thread.

Tata also has a 49% stake in AirAsia India.

Does anyone know what the 797 is? 737-11 with 757-200+ Range? 767-200 size with 737-10 Efficiency? Boeing hasn't launched the 797 yet, so we cannot be 100% certain. But from the details that have come out in the press is that it should be more like a 767 with a 737 efficiency. As for TUI I would be...Jump to post

The only possibility is with DHL. They are a big package hauler, which the A380F would potentially be good at. What shoots tht in the head is that DHL is only into buying secondhand at the moment, and via their contractors is introducing the A333P2F conversion. The conclusion has to be that it migh...Jump to post
Does it really matter what Boeing does with the 737 MAX?
The only thing that really matters for Airbus is if this suggested stretch of the A320 will bring in a bigger return on the investments into the A320neo program then when Airbus does nothing.

The most 787 deliveries in 1 month was actually in December 2014, Boeing delivered 18 in that month. So a high number of deliveries in December is possible. We'll see if they make the planned 147, or even just 144 = 12 per month rate. There can always be more delays for specific frames. At least the...Jump to post

The A380 is too large to be an effective combi. How many routes out there do you think can handle a ~A330 load of passengers plus ~77F volume of cargo (or v/v) each way approximately every day? The A380 is too expensive (in both acquisition costs and operating costs) to be lugging around an empty t...Jump to post
I think they would be interested.
But they wouldn't want to pay for the development cost of such version. So unless Airbus find some other customers to spread the costs it will never happen.

Is the plan to still offer an 8 door version of the -9 for airlines with less dense configurations? (As opposed to the 10 door configuration on this test frame).
