Re: Brussels Airlines to ditch Sukhoi Superjets?

In my view the ARJ21 can not be considered a commercial aircraft program. I think that the MRJ program also has to be careful to offer sufficient support. I'm not too worried about it as Japanese companies can excel in support, but they need to do better than Airbus and Boeing even. I was able to fi...

Re: Brussels Airlines to ditch Sukhoi Superjets?

Aerospace is very fragmented in Russia.
You have the designing company, the manufacturing company, the marketing company, the financing company, the maintenance company, individual parts suppliers.
When it's time to do the support part, they all look at eachother and nobody does anything.

Re: Leeham: VLA era is over; are 779/A35K too large?

The A380 still burns less fuel if configured in the same density as other aircraft. The B787 in a 9-abreast is the equivalent of 11 or perhaps 12 abreast on the A380's main deck in Y. A fully loaded B789 is going to approach 6 tons per hour, roughly half the A380`s fuel burn. The A380 can easily car...
