Southern Airways Express (9X) has already served New Orleans, and pulled out.
They chose NEW instead of MSY, but couldn't make it work.
Not surprising, as essentially no one knew it was there.
I believe SunsetLimited had the chance to fly them though, so he'd know more.

Either way, Lockheed-Martin is probably a better partner anyway since they have experience making supersonic aircraft.

What modifications were done ? Goodyear changed the tire design so that the max rotation speed could be raised at altitude.

I don’t see Delta retiring the 777-200LR anytime soon. Delta uses it on routes like ATL-JNB and LAX-SYD. The A359 can barely make LAX-SYD and can only make nearly 1,000 miles short of ATL-JNB. Delta would need something that can handle 8,439 mile ATL-JNB before they can replace the 777-200LR. Mind ...Jump to post

Considering how utterly destroyed the 346 was by the 77W, I'd bet that Airbus (with 20/20 hindsight) sees that there could have been a benefit to mating a modified 346 wing and fuselage to twin GE90-115Bs. While it would've required some serious wing strengthening and possibly a gear extension, it ...Jump to post
Last thing the DNC needs a far left progressive from California. Harris is barely Progressive, and not REMOTELY "far Left." In fact, the actual far Left can't stand her... for that reason!

Second, XIY-SFO-LAX is superior to XIY-ICN-LAX for a LAX bound passenger. If you travelled more you would understand why. In the case of any any disruptions (weather, ATC, mechanical, etc.), it is much better for a passenger to miss a connection in SFO than ICN. In SFO there are dozens of daily fli...Jump to post

Have one, like it, does what it says.
It's supposed to "learn" your preferences, but in my experience, really never does.

Maybe not, as they'd then have the base platform for a killer freighter. Given the expected MTOW development for the -900, I doubt they need to bother with a new wing or bigger engine to have a killer freighter. Indeed, but for clarification, I'm not saying that the -1000 shrink would be needed to ...Jump to post
More interestingly, few doubt Airbus could create an ULR champion based of A350-1000 wing, engines, landing and the -900 fuselage. Question is is they are willing too.
