On a separate note, would it make sense for Boeing to develop a 767 MAX in the same manner than Airbus NEO'd the 330? You'd think a long-time 767 operator like UA would look at such a bird to directly replace some 767s. It would, if there was a fitting engine on the market. But in this thurst class...Jump to post

If I may mention the backlog of 7 built and parked QR A350-900 with a lower MSN than long delivered ones, we are already at 11.

Nice method to use the overcapacity of the A380 completion facilities.
Cabin outfitting was an option, but not as of yet. Only painting for some 330s & 350s is done in XFW

****Disclaimer: I'm not trying to bash Boeing**** Congratulations to Boeing. Delivering some 700 plus planes is not thinkable a couple years ago. But this achievement is having its price: I've heard endless complaints from mechanics about how the newly delivered birds went tech during 2017. Most of...Jump to post
This will probable not be all new engines. Just revised engines with new fan blades. Still very expensive as it mains a nearly compleet new build up of the engine.Jump to post
Counting msn 60 as delivered in dec 2017 I see 9 delivered in december for a total of 78.
First time I see december not being the best month of the year, which could be seen as progress.
Though airbus would have liked delivering more to qatar and china for sure.

I hate to burst your bubble, but the average capacity per flight on transpacific flights has been steadily decreasing over the past 20 years while frequency increases. The market is demanding more city pairs avoiding the main central hubs like LAX and NRT in favor of direct routes like DFW-PVG, whi...Jump to post
Stored P&W frames seem to be down to 30 from nearly 45, but stored or undelivered LEAP frames are nearing 20.
You get on a horse always from the left side. (even in england).Jump to post
Sounds like they need a larger aircraft soon. If this is such a big succes more routes will follow.Jump to post
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

8 hours in a narrowbody isn't unheard of, just ask the 757
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
