Re: MH orders 787s

I'm kind of surprised the A330neo did not win. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain, lots of trained pilots around, lots of spare parts, etc. Good range, good capacity, good economy. What am I missing? Well a new a.net narrative appearing to be forming is that it's a move to get the US Departme...

Re: Future of 777X

As mentioned up thread the existing 77W fleets are still young. This is going to be a slow burner, but will sell well in the end. The situation is similar to that of the A330neo tbh.

Re: BA on track to take A350-1000 next year?

The reason? EI says it is sticking with 330s, which is a fine aircraft no doubt, but with its hub at Dublin growing, it doesn't seem to make sense to stay with an aircraft of the same capacity they've had for the last 20 years. My guess: the case made by IB for these aircraft was better than that m...

Of course it makes sense. They are already built and can be taken up and put into rework whenever the air force likes. I don't buy the argument that they are bespoke aircraft from the ground up, all other nations manage with modifications of standard aircraft, why can't the USA?
