This is an interesting development. It clearly shows that customers, including Amazon are interested in buying large quantities of large freighter planes. I think the rumors last year that Amazon was looking at placing an order for 100 767Fs was mainly a translation of their ambitions and not so muc...Jump to post

Does anyone know why Boeing hasn't reported orders (and deliveries) for February yet?

It's just for the A350s, so GE is probably getting the 787 engine order.
He must be fully aware that posing with an AirAsia X 787 model on his public Instagram will have an impact on any negotiations regarding new aircraft orders. It's serious and if Boeing's final offer is better than Airbus's final offer, we will see the 787 in the new AirAsia X livery. These models i...Jump to post
Air Asia X is very likely over in Seattle to drive the Airbus price down. To do that, they have to make a credible show of considering Boeing. The more credible, the cheaper the price, and the A330neo program is a little more vulnerable today than pre-HA. Having said that, I would be surprised to s...Jump to post
This is literally how Leeham changed his story: "I’ll concede I should have written that Hawaiian is “to” cancel the order (future tense), not that it “cancels” (present tense)."

Boeing's interest in Embraer is a clear indication on where Boeing is currently looking to cover the market directly below the current 737 line-up.Jump to post
If they are going to buy so many MAX 7's, why did they defer 23 of their existing orders until after 2023? Well, I'd imagine part of it is that they already have over 500 73Gs in the fleet; they have also been successful in finding used 73Gs on attractive terms, with 18 pre-owned -700s added or pla...Jump to post

Does Boeing own some 777-200ERs that they can lease out to this airline as a interim solution before they can deliver 787s? I just can't see Boeing still offering an airline like this brand new 777-200LRs. I could see them taking new 77Ws, but a 787 order is most likely by now, otherwise they will a...Jump to post

There's no proof, except for some toilets the windows of the 787 don't have shades.

The unidentified order for 17 looks to be an order transfer from one customer to another and not a NG to MAX conversion. The MAX total only went from 4306 to 4307.

Boeing is very keen on growing it's aftermarket support and services business. So on top of a possible 777X order it's also a matter of trying to secure deals for Boeing Global Services.

I always find it interesting that when you see architectural renderings of new airports there are more than often some 747s in it, even if the airport doesn't see any 747 services.

Even though Boeing would have offered them some early 787 slots. Same for an A350 solution, Airbus would have worked with them, but there are simple not as many available slots as for the A330neo.

We will have to wait and see for how this will turn out. ET has been linked like this to many "orders" before over the last couple of years, including the 777X, which didn't (yet) turn into firm orders.
Those are not available for the main cabin.Jump to post
The photograph of the seat situated in the cabin is certainly not a 787. Look at those windows! And they have shades! (Does Singapore use shades on their 787s? Does any airline?)

A lease deal for 77W's fell through last year because Airasia's infrastructure was compeletely focused on Airbus products.

There are a couple of "millennial" airlines that will probably grab this crown.

Lion Air Group start June 2000 current fleet all Subsidiaries: well over 200
Just to name 3.
