Re: Southwest may take 500 MAX 7

WNs boarding system allows for 180 seats max. 60 A, 60 B and 60 C. The 7M10 would have far more than 180 seats. Probably closer to 215 as an arbitrary number. So would WN add a D boarding group in that case? Based on southwest current pitch & layout the 737-10 would have 205 seats without the 3...

Re: UA RFQ now ongoing for 767 replacement?

United currently has 35 763 and 16 764. Seat counts for the 763 range from 183 - 214 and the 764 holds 242. United's 788 seats 219 and the 789 seats 252.

Before this order was placed AA had 58 options for the 787. Assuming that they have converted 47 options into firm orders there is 11 left. There was another 28 options added to this order so there should be a total of 39 options in total left. For more refer to http://nyc787.blogspot.com.au/ -----...

Re: Hawaiian Airlines having second thoughts on A330neos, could order 787's instead

Would be a shame, but I can see why it would happen. Similar to AA there are a few ways to 'compensate' Airbus, but would Airbus play hardball to avoid losing the only customer for the -800?
