Re: WN and BA codeshare?

Are their products comparable though? For one WN only offers one class, I’m not sure if that would be a turn off for business flyers who typically fly with many more frills and perks. It may benefit WN flyers to be able to connect long haul, but probably not so much those who fly OW since they can ...

Re: Leahy: A380 could have had better engine technology

Your argument is that GE could not provide a slightly bigger GEnx for the A380, than for the 787, because of expected sales numbers for the A380, but how was it than possible to provide a down scaled version of the GEnx for the 747-8 for still fewer sales? Because GE had already sta...
