Re: Updated: Sir Tim Clark: Emirates next batches of A380s will be powered by RR

This is more of the same basically stupid Leeham analysis of the A380. They've been saying for years now that the A380 is "competitive" on seat costs. Nowhere in their analysis does Leeham account for the capacity/efficiency tradeoff that airlines obviously make. Instead, Leeham asks only...

Re: Airbus A320neo Family Production/Delivery Thread 2018

Airbus seems to have reached at least 560 delivered A320 family frames this year. That is passed the record deliveries of 558 last year. It includes 248 A320neo and 89 A321neo delivered and flown out. Quite a bit of December left to improve on those numbers.
