Re: 737-10 Reaches Firm Configuration

I will note that while I believe all A320 family operators have chosen 18" wide seats with a 19" aisle, an operator could choose 17" wide seats with a 25" wide aisle and that extra six inches might be enough to allow people to pass each other in the aisle. Easyjet, one of Europe...

Re: What's going on with a likely dispose of 140 aircraft out of Norwegian's fleet?

The problem is their A320neos order is PW powered. They are having issues finding airlines wanting to lease from them at high prices until PW has their problems worked out. Everyone wants to wait (especially when who knows when they will actually get the plane) which puts DY in a bind. To my knowle...

Re: What's going on with a likely dispose of 140 aircraft out of Norwegian's fleet?

Norwegian was one of the few airlines that placed early large orders for the A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX. They ordered 100 A320 family and more than 100 Boeing 737 MAX. There is now a huge backlog for both. Norwegian has good production slots at good prices. This is worth a lot and is one of the reas...
