Re: Why is the A350 so expensive?

With 830+ aircraft sold across its various models, the A350 is undoubtedly a success, however it is also no secret that it has lost a number of campaigns to the 787 simply because airlines find its list price too high. It is certainly true that depending on the model, an A350 costs on average betwe...

Re: American Airlines orders 47 additional 787's (22 788's and 25 789's), cancels A350 order

If true Boeing really gave some huge concessions to pull this off. For Boeing selling at cost almost seems worth it to kill the 350 no? Keep AA with Boeing more and this really hurts the 350 program if true. Its absolutly a hair brain thought and the idea that killing the A350 with all its orders a...

Re: American Airlines orders 47 additional 787's (22 788's and 25 789's), cancels A350 order

Makes sense. No surprise. AA does not need another long range type. The question is, can they just cancel the longstanding A350 order? Are there any penalties? Is AA really canceling the A350 order or is it switching the deposits to more A321? May be some -LR? I think AA is quite happy with the A32...

Re: American Airlines orders 47 additional 787's (22 788's and 25 789's), cancels A350 order

Great news for American Airlines and the Boeing 787 program. I really enjoy working on the 787. As well as the obvious fuel savings and operational advantages, there are crew cost savings as well. The faster flying times equate to having to do another trip per month for crew members just to meet mi...

This also looks like AA is betting against the 797. If the bet doesn't work out, and a decade down the road AA is trying to use 788s to compete with Delta 797s on TATL routes, that's going to hurt. Maybe. Maybe not. I am sure AA has the ability to adjust models to meet requirements so if MoM is lau...

Re: AA ORDERS 47 787 FROM BOEING????

Good for Boeing. Good also for Airbus that they get money from AA without having to give anything in return. Why does AB need to get anything. They both share the market and AB is doing just fine with there 5-7 year back logs not need to soften the blow, there doing just fine. And we have no clue o...
