Aside from the fact that it’s already flying, Airbus stayed earlier they’ll be pushing the CS “ahead of their a319”, so it looks like they’re more invested on the CS than their own design. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-18/airbus-pledges-to-put-c-series-ahead-of-own-a319-in-sales-p...Jump to post

What were they thinking? That BBD and Canada had no way to retaliate and would serve as a horrific bloodbath example. or.

Since the pressure is so low, the BIM indicator is quite sensitive, and it's possible to get nuisance BIM indications with rapid weather changes. Trigger or toggle style activation ? i.e. trigger on underpressure and then a manual reset or on/off corresponding to some passing trigger level pressure?Jump to post

Extra fuel burn for additional weight carried is approx. 25kg/ton/hr. So, if you load extra 9 tons of fuel, in 13 hours you will have burned an additional ~3 tons of fuel. So, after 13 hrs (~6500Nm) you are left with an extra of 6 tons. Good for another 500Nm of flight I am not following your logic...Jump to post

If Boeing sold 737s below cost, they would have had to take a financial charge, just like BBD did with the Delta deal. And that would leave evidence in the financial statements just like BBD couldn’t avoid. We do know that Boeing sold about 400 787 frames well below cost. The moment you hide your n...Jump to post

Speaking of "fair competition" and "anyone else", Airbus launched the A320NEO in order to use its might to crush the C Series (as they already had the 737 on the run), and its reward is getting half of the program for 1 Canadian dollar! As an added bonus, they get to blame Boein...Jump to post
