If you can present us with that contract then we can verify it has no viable escape clauses. Until we have such, or until the aircraft are delivered, speculation of the aircraft not being delivered is quite valid, even if some are upset by that notion. We even have two recent proof points.

They would go after the company, not the country. If it was determined BBD was exporting US content, then the company would face restrictions on business in the US and possible banking problems. Let's suppose, just for the sake of argument, that BBD - now having been taken over by Airbus - was actu...Jump to post
If UA wasn't permitted to profit off of leasing it's DAL gates to WN, I'd think it actually be interested in servicing DAL, and operate DAL-EWR/SFO/ORD. At that point, why give up say the DAL-SFO business to AS and WN. But that's just my guess. They seemed to have no interest in that when they had ...Jump to post
Will DL ever add nonstop service to its SEA hub from CMH?

Same range and same crew cost...why not go with more seats and lower your CASM? Runway performance on island airports? Obviously AS feels they have enough smaller aircraft for this to not be a reason, mind, but my understanding is that the -8 does still have a useful niche. Do you mean the 9? Becau...Jump to post

That's why they don't need a mid-con hub, contrary to the belief of many A.netters. The few mid-con hubs that do survive such as ORD/MDW, MSP, DFW, and IAH are simply very large O&D markets so they support the hubs they have. I disagree with the first part. The lack of a hub not on the coast is...Jump to post
Same reason CLe, STL, PIT, CVG, and MEM are no longer hubs. Not big enough. Not sure I would agree with that. I think the proximity to other hubs for the same carrier did them in.

But any expectations of going back to 5-7 per month are unrealistic. I would say it will get some 77W replacement orders over the next 10-15 years and likely some A380 replacement orders as well.

Tell you what, here's the ultimate point. The fact that AS and VX can't make DAL work when DFW works reasonably well is EXACTLY why DOT's consideration of DAL and DFW as a single market is fatally flawed. If the markets were really ONE, then VX/AS performance would be identical at both airports. Ar...Jump to post
I think that VX getting the gates wasn’t a bad thing but I definitely think DL should have also gotten permanent space to at least operate their ATL flights. Now that AS controls the gates and will have no connection to the east coast, DL should have the gates. Back in 2014, DL proposed mainline 8x...Jump to post

AS needs to consolidate back at DFW. Sooner or later, and like it or notm WN is going to get those two gates. No airline should be legally permitted to control 100% of the gates at ANY airport.

Defending market share, for a market that has been clearly unprofitable for all the incumbents involved for over a decade....is many things, but it very much doesn't fit the mould of economic rationality.

Agree that EGO is the only reason why the 380 program is still around. Don't agree with this 100% - EK needs the A380 and if Airbus doesn't supply it, the nearest suitable aircraft is the B748. Although it may appear to be purely EGO to A.Net, I am sure Airbus knows that it is also defending its VL...Jump to post
