Re: Hawaiian Airlines firms order for 10 787-9's plus 10 options

Hawaiian only had 8 -800s ordered, yet they ordered 10 789. Traffic growth? if they had kept the A338s would they have ordered 2 more?

Re: Air Asia to order more Airbus aircraft?

I really wish the money spent on the A330 NEO had been spent on an optimized wing for the A350-800, but then the A350 ‘family’ would have three siblings that didn’t share as much as most aircraft families do. It seems odd to me that Airbus best plane, the A321 NEO (my opinion only) is possibly being...
