With all due respect to Airbus and John Leahy, but this MoU from Indigo Partners was about saving face. They came to Dubai with all their corporate honchos to sign EK up for a massive A380 order, and everyone assumed the deal was in the bag. John Leahy was going to extend the A380 program and it wa...Jump to post
Should airbus launch a lite version of the A350-1000 using the wings, engines and landing gaer of the A350-900. With the MTOW of 280tons it would still have a range of about 13000 km at much lower cost per seat. Development cost would be low and economics would beat the B787-10. Considering how poo...Jump to post

Hmmm... So, quite a strong play by AirBridgeCargo. Yes, they lost slots. But they lost hem because they didn't use them. If they were allowed to have those slots back, how will other cargo carriers that lost slots react? Cheers! :wave: they did not loose them because they did not uses them., but be...Jump to post

Will these aircraft come from there own fleet/orders ?Jump to post

Qatar continue to be a mystery to me - progress is so slow compared to all other airlines. This includes airlines first frames. So little noise from either AAB or Airbus on this situation. It must be customer supplied equipment that is late if AAB is silent. Do you mean to say that the aircraft on ...Jump to post

I Doubt it, first it should launch nonstop AMS-CGK, which is currently served via KUL

People also forget that A350 production remains in a ramp-up phase and will continue to do until the end of 2018. So if you look at the curve, there will always be more deliveries in the second half of the year. Therefore it's pointless to look at average deliveries so early in the year. And when t...Jump to post
There are other 747's aviable at low cost.Jump to post
While that is the old configuration, interesting how the A350-1000 is almost a true 77W replacement! I'm sure if 42 J seats were placed instead of 46 J seats the plane would eventually have more pax than the old 77W configuration. Well the A350-1000 is basically the exact same size as the 77W excep...Jump to post
It is from central europe to western europe only. Rynair is bigger if you also count passengers within western europe. Interesting that they have data to 26th of juni 2017 ????Jump to post
Would it not be easer and cheaper to extend the lease on the current aircraft. In that case they need to order only 10 new aircraft.Jump to post
tvh, It's not just looking at the number of years, new routes and number of aircraft in the fleet. You forget the most important factor which is their load factors through all these years and what their expected forecast is. This determines how many aircraft (how many seats) they need. Looking at t...Jump to post
[quote="Iemand91"So when you don't look at the total number of seats they will retire 26 planes and gain 27. It's also not very unlikely they will get one or some more 777-300ER's.[/quote] So an increase of 1 plane in a period of 6 years and a lot of new destinations.Thats not whopy. I sti...Jump to post
There are 20 747's left and only 2 77W and max 6 787 excepted before 2020. The 7 B787-10 and 7 A350 all come from 2020. How can KLM handle this, how many 747 will remain into the next decade? They also want to grow there fleet so I would think they need to order more aircraft or step up the deliveri...Jump to post
“for 2-3 hour missions the A330ceos are still more efficient than a neo,” What are the reasons for that? Higher OEW, which offsets the increased efficiency of the new engines? Higher burn in climb? Must be higher price for the neo as the weight difference is minimal. One's the neo development has b...Jump to post
Any particular reason why the engines are installed after the aircraft has been painted... They are installed at the latest possible date. It's useless to have to pay for them earlier. Those engines are very expansive ! Then why are the A330s and A380s painted with their engines already installed? ...Jump to post
They will be delivered to there final customer in early 2017. No real need to store them. Is there already a customer? I would imagine finding someone can take a while. That's exactly my point. If they had found a customer, the frames would be painted by now (presumably). As far as I know, the fina...Jump to post
MSN 79 (LATAM #7) lining up for its first CAF this morning. Sure looks and smells like Airbus will hit 49 deliveries this year! Number 50 will have to be MSN 70/72 (CX #11), the former being in paint for the moment. msn 47 is at the flightline for weeks now, doing nothing, why ? It's still in cabin...Jump to post
A few statistics on A350 time between FF and actual delivery, as derived from Starbuck's spreadsheet: No wonder why so few of QR's planes are on flight tests, as Airbus is going through its end-of-year deliveries rush. Only AY has had (two) deliveries taking longer than QR's average delay from FF t...Jump to post
Seems CX and SQ cannot get enough....as soon as they're ready they're taking them and flying them! Indeed. QR's situation may well be the exact reverse. In the A380 thread (IIRC), someone posted that Tim Clark told about the economic woes of EK. I guess QR may well be in comparably dire straits (?)...Jump to post
G'day Could there be financing issues? Maybe a case where His Majesty Al U-Turn gave Airbus the choice to deliver the next two A380'ies or some more A350'ies but not both There does not appear to be any activity around those Qatar A350'ies. The issue seems to be more than a bent carpet fiber or a s...Jump to post
Qatar deliveries continue to slip. MSN 42 now scheduled for delivery mid-December rather than November. MSN 47 still showing Dec but looks likely to slip as well. This could mean only 6 deliveries to Qatar in 2016 rather than the original 12 planned. If MSN 47 slips, it could also spell the end for...Jump to post

I would have thought that Boeing should look at a 787-10 ER if such an aircraft were possible.Far more orders to pick up in that segment IMHO.

Msn32 has gone home, which makes 31. I think airbus will count msn32 as delivered in Oktober. Looks like they wil come close to the 50 number. There are 10 900's painted not yet on the flightline.

Those numbers are not quite right. We're already @ 29. will end Oct @ 31 or 32 depending on whether LATAM sneaks in MSN 64.
