The A330-900 isn't going anywhere at all. 200+ orders is more than enough for a new plane. Plus, like the 777X, more and more orders will appear as their predecessors need replacing. The A330neo definitely won't replace all A330's, it came in wayyyy too late to do that. But I do believe it can compe...Jump to post

Also known as "Emirates effect"? :-) Or Ryanair effect? After all, Southwest was where Michael O'Leary learnt many of his tricks... If Ryanair was 0.0001% as good as Southwest, Michael O'Leary, would be AT LEAST 10 positions down from the first place in the Top 2 most hated people in the ...Jump to post
I expect them to ditch the 189-seater 737 layout for a more comfortable one. They have promised 31'' pitch (though they could be talking about the 787's/A330's) so in an all-Y config it would allow them to carry 168-174 seats. Also an interesting fact: Wiki says that their A330's will be at a 247-s...Jump to post
I guess they decided that going forward with taking a plane they have the only 6 orders to isn't that wise. The 789 has better range than the 332/338 and I guess they may go for a different configuration, like with W (perhaps a lot of those) and a J like Cirrus or Super Diamond. I know they just int...Jump to post

I actually quite like the livery. What is their strategy? Full-service? Hybrid? Will they have a J with direct aisle access? W?Jump to post
The stupid thing is that they could actually expand. They offer great service and have leading cabins. Why they don't is a whole other story that has already been mentioned here.Jump to post
So I wanna buy a few diecasts, and I wanna know which manufacturers/moulds are the best. Specifically, I was wondering how good are JC Wings (I found their moulds at quite cheap prices, and also apparently they make Gemini Jets moulds as well) and Aeroclassics (because my God do they make some inter...Jump to post
Many people also use Fort Lauderdale to go to Miami as well. And afaik most European airlines fly to both MIA and FLL, so you can really see the market is crowded. And MIA has been doing quite well for however long it has existed. I doubt it's true. And last thing, if you noticed, WW was flying a 35...Jump to post
Well there goes the safety record... This is the second fatal accident in less than a week? I know this is pure coincidence, but still. Could it be CFIT? The plane was sort of close to the landing airport, so perhaps they descended a bit too fast, or ATC cleared them too early? There are also unconf...Jump to post

Praying for a new SSJ order. Also low-key begging for a new MC-21 order but I really doubt it.Jump to post
I'm gonna wait until I see a new announcement to believe they're rebranding. And Westjet won't pull anything bad. It's physically impossible for them to ruin this livery. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like this livery, but there are like a million ways to improve it.Jump to post
I'd love for that to happen, but we'd heard that they'd order the 777X back in Paris and Dubai last year alone, so I wouldn't be so certain yet.Jump to post
How much demand does Ethiopia have anyway? I mean ET has been doing fantastically and I do love the underdog pulling through, but still. Also I think the -8 is more likely to be ordered since ET's 77W's are newer than their 77L's, and I doubt they have a need for the 779 in terms of capacity. Either...Jump to post

Why do you all think SQ will launch SEA with a plane of which they only have 7 on order and is specifically designed for ULH routes, when the standard A350-900's they have can make it to SFO, which is farther away than SEA? If they launch SEA it'll be with a standard 359. Also why does LAX only need...Jump to post
If it wasn't a mid air collision then the pitot tubes probably iced, but if they did, why the speed fluctuations? Speed didn't fluctuate like that if we take a pitot tube related incident like AF447 iirc. AF447 was in a flat stable stall. Imagine a spin or what the KC-390 prototype experienced.

BBC says that according to authorities, there is '' "no chance" anyone could have survived.''. Can a 148 even carry 71 people? Could this be a mechanical failure, seeing that the plane just dived to the ground? No matter what happened this is very sad. RIP to those who died.Jump to post

OK, didn't know that. Which Pan Am?

I think it could be the Zodiac Cirrus NG for the A330neo. It is an evolution of their current A330 seat, and is better in every way. Or the Waterfront, which is reverse herringbone and has sliding doors, to keep up with their A350/777 J The Waterfront design would be a great way to offer a “downsiz...Jump to post
Imagine what would happen if AF, BA, AC, SU, CX, QF etc. were turned into LCC's. The public would go nuts. Which is what will happen now. I mean sure people will still fly them, but not as much as before. There are tons of people who would prefer paying 100-200$ extra to get actual free service on ...Jump to post
Two questions: One, what's the reason for all the delays? Is it BBD, PW or something else?
Two, which other airlines will be getting their CSeries this year? I know DL was supposed to, but with all the delays due to the possible tariff I don't know now. Is there any other operator for this year?
We know it's a new operator, so it can't be the LH Group. So it could be anything between AF, KL, IB, BA, SK, SU etc. We know it involves both types, so it would make more sense if it was an airline that has both a 737-600/A318/717 and 737-700/A319 in service at smaller numbers, which would narrow i...Jump to post
Well he sure is a dumbass. Can't wait until this completely backfires. I'm sure it will.

OK that is dull as all hell, but it's actually quite a good continuation of the LH brand. I like it, just not as much as the old one. I think people will like it soon enough, just like it happened with Qantas and Air Canada.Jump to post
Let's say we have an aircraft with 6500km maximum range. My question is, does that range include the reserve and diversion fuel (IIRC that's 75 minutes, so about 500-600km, depends on the plane's speed) which would make the plane's maximum range before it has to have load restrictions ~6000km, or do...Jump to post

There are a million rumors, but yet nothing as good as the current one. QF and AC pulled it off, so I hope LH does, because their current branding is beautiful.

All the people who are complaining about the 8-hour narrowbody flights are clearly clueless in regards to how aviation works. It depends on the airline, not the aircraft. For example, if PA chooses to install lie-flat J seats and 32-inch-pitched Y seats with IFE then I would actually prefer it to th...Jump to post
