I just think it makes good sense to split orders between A and B. Lately between the 787 and this new order for the 777, BA is sending lots of money Boeing's way. The 77W is certainly a licence to print money in the right operator's hands. With increasing threats to ban UK aircraft from EU skies it...Jump to post

volume is the differentiator. Over many years UFO orders were fringe. Then Boeing started to really boost that segment of UFO announcement.

Not sure it's worth starting a new thread for, but the Vistara order for A320neoss has indeed materialised. 50 in total comprised of 13 from Airbus directly and 37 from lessors. http://twitter.com/Airbus/status/1016989225827348480 787 and A320neo it is. A very smart order of two quality airplanes.Jump to post
From what I read your constitution doesn't define the number of judges the Supreme Court has so if/when the Democrats get control back they could add 4 or 6 new judges to it just to swing it the other way. I'm sure fun will ensue. I totally agree that the fact this court has so much power is a desi...Jump to post

Its not a rhetorical question. Its a fact that neo Nazis love Trump. I'm just curious as to why you think that is. I'm not calling you a Nazi, I want to be clear on that.

Interesting comparison. They have the 737-8 on there twice by counting the 200 seat option for ULCC and the 737-9 which is effectively dead once current orders are produced. On a going forward basis, the narrow body lineup in terms of number of models is equal between the two. I get that marketing ...Jump to post

It is not a dumping case anyway. An USA manufacturer can give its frame away without it being dumping, they can sell the frame as far below cost as they want to.
