Maybe I am dense, but when these orders (WB or NB, Airbus or Boeing), don't they have a delivery period listed? Then it should be simple enough (even stupid me can put together an Excel spreadsheet) to know what the rate should be. I have to deliver so many in each year contractually, right? Simple ...Jump to post
Forgive my ignorance, but isn't the APD passed through to the pax? It is and that makes the tickets more expensive. Airlines want to avoid that because it's pricing them out of the market. They want their tickets to be as cheap as possible, but the APD makes that UK-based airlines always have a dis...Jump to post
While analysts and lessors scratch their head about rate 60, Airbus considers pushing single aisle production to rate 70. “If we look at the piled up demand and the backlog, we need to progress on rate 70, which is underway right now. We are in advanced discussions with our supply chain on feasibil...Jump to post
For the record Airbus has over 1,700 frames (28%) of total back log from eight airlines that currently only fly 728 planes. There are cancellations in this bunch for sure. That Indigo Partners order really has me scratching my head. To me it feels really speculative that all four of those airlines ...Jump to post

ET seems to be working hard to become an alternative to connecting airlines like EK, QR, EY but for Africa.

Oh my word. Am I glad I don’t work for Pratt on that project. The stress levels must be massive, as a fellow aerospace engineer, I really feel for those guys. Doing another rushed redesign and manufacturing route is the most stressed job I have ever had. Even under that pressure it can take months....Jump to post
Delta knows if they sour the relationship with Boeing much more, it will ruin any negotiation advantage they have with Airbus. Airbus has a captive audience with Delta on anything larger than a C-Series and will price accordingly. I would offer a different rationale: they think 788s and 338/339 are...Jump to post
It looked as if it was going to land on one of the 22s, but nope. This is extremely unfortunate for me as I happen to live under the path that aircraft take to the 22s, and I was planning on spotting it. :( Dark and cloudy.

I personally love Known Crewmember (at least at most airports. SEA and PDX KCM are awful, in my experience) and think it is a great thing, but it only benefits a small number of people so I don’t think it should have a chance of winning.

Cast that 737-10 lure on the water and just watch the usual trout rise up. And when it's spiced with Randy? It's Christmas morning!
Randy may be a spin doctor, but he dare not outright lie. But why worry about a paper airplane in the first place? 416 orders? A rounding error in comparison!
Addressing the demand mix for the Max family, Tinseth estimated that between 60 and 65 percent of orders will go to the baseline Max 8; 20 to 25 percent to the Max 9 and 10; and roughly 10 percent “on the lower end of that market,” namely the Max 7 Does anyone think he really believes that 10% of t...Jump to post
A321LR going ORY-JFK tomorrow. Are there any details on times?
The 12 p.a. is the rate for the A380 supposedly. I’d guess the 777X is 6 or 7 per month when up and running.
And congrats to Airbus for the order that most of us thought was the common sense solution for all parties.
All that may be true, but reputations have suffered and so may future sales. If CFM needs to increase capacity, that will take time. Airbus doesn't have the capacity to keep on pumping out gliders, and it's not likely they will just work on LEAP frames either. I would be very annoyed at PW if I was...Jump to post
Guess what kiddies? Airlines kept the faith, compensation got paid, and it all worked out in the end because engineers were not hysterical chicken little types. Airlines equally can't walk out of contracts free and clear because their neighbour is having issues with their engines so CFM won't be ge...Jump to post
Bad news for PW, and it really messes up Airbus and their customers. Airbus must be taking a cash flow hit and will have logistics problems. "Do you see a sign in the front of my factory that says dead glider storage, PW?? No?? And you know why you didn't see that sign?? It ain't there because ...Jump to post
I had never seen them until they started flying into JFK with the MD-11s early. I think they are subbing in for UPS because their flight is KD1112 (from SDF) and I haven't seen 5X1112 in pretty much the same time.Jump to post

God, I certainly hope not!

I'm sure it will. Those two are going to start their own airline and compete their former employer out of the market, and I think they'll succeed. At least, that's what I would do if I were them.

The 737-8 can not go anywhere in the USA, at least not from KEF. That doesn’t sound accurate, KEF-BOS is 2413 miles. If that’s not within range of the 737-8 from KEF then the MAX 8 would not have the sales it does. I’d expect the MAX 8 to get around 3400 miles. Which puts BNA, ATL, STL, and ANC in ...Jump to post

They could very well take the A321 to get out from under the A350 can they keep kicking down the road. You mean that started off as an order for 25, then went to 35 and is now at 45?
