Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

A321XLR or LR makes more sense for PR than 5J, 5J for now should stick to their bread-and-butter which is domestic and regional. Don't really see why they had to order the A330neo now when they still have a bunch of relatively new A330s flying around and IIRC they have no plans of expanding long-ha...

Re: Airline types that are/were only ever operated by a single airline

While other A350s already and will incorporate their specifications in their 'regular' variants, SQ has the A350-900ULR and PR has the A350-900HGW exclusivities... at least in those naming conventions.

That's because you're comparing 10 abreast with 9. And 777 is seriously burning a lot more fuel for not many more seats; it burns some 9 ton per hour compared with less than 6 on A359.
