One thing the WSJ article doesn't mention, is when did Boeing start these talks. Is this a direct response to Airbus and Bombardier ? Bombardier and Airbus had talks which fell through some time before the actual deal was done. Has Boeing had similar talks in the past with Embraer ? Did the Airbus ...Jump to post
Has anyone noticed the German flag on the tail of..... most of the a321neos? Why is this a thing when it wasn't before on ceos.

If an AvGeek can’t imagine and hypothesize and wonder on a.net, where can he or she? There’s a lot of wet hens in here.

How will Delta not have to pay tariffs now? The 220% tariff is on the product, not the manufacturer.Jump to post
Yo 80% on any bombardier plane..... 300% on C series. geez.
Is this a trump thing? I don't want to hear trump administration, or branch of gov't led by trump. His words, his mouth. Is this him?
Has there been a precedent? It sorta sounds like out of nowhere.
Bravo. The nationalization of the C-series program stunk to no end, but then to use that financial lifeline as a crutch to dump product in a foreign market was one step too far. Totally agree. But what happens to the delta order? Do they still get it at the previously agreed upon price? Does bombar...Jump to post

I have 0 in-depth knowledge, but 10 must be type maximum. 757s are regularly pushing 9ish westbound.
757s fully loaded must be slower than their wide-body counterparts; they are doing westbounds quicker at a rate of 1-2 hours less.
I'm not going to lie though, getting a wheelchair out of the bin of a 737, particularly the 739 is relatively difficult. I'm not sure what plane they used but if it was a 737 I could possibly understand why it was destroyed. Dude seriously? No it wasn't a 737. They were flying from Euro to Newark.....Jump to post

Good luck talking yourself out of this one. What need is there for "luck" when the answers are straightforward? Here, since you insist, let's examine. (P.S. learn to use the quotes function. It's not difficult, even for you. Would make this so much less cumbersome). "Actually, it's q...Jump to post
PHX is certainly a big US without any transoceanic international flights (save BA) - but that is because of the poor quality of its population base.

Americans just don't want to follow directions anymore. Seems to be a trend here lately. When the aircraft has pushed back from the gate everybody needs to be seated.
