Sad news, Aseman announced that all 66 on board didn't survive

Each time I hear an aircraft "is performing better than expected", I am a little bit upset and if I were the big boss I would sanction the chief engineer and his staff for not being able to predict the performance properly. Imagine the lost opportunity in term of "value selling"...Jump to post

Email just arrived from @lufthansaNews confirming #lufthansablue as main livery colour while yellow will still be used at airports and on boarding cards
Very disappointing, yet I get why they chose itJump to post

FR24 shows it's been flying to JFK since DEC19 but also, flying as A7-AMB as it was.
WHATS GOING ON WITH FR24???
The first SkyTeam painted aircraft will be MSN #197, VN-A897. This will also be the first aircraft to be painted into any of the 3 Alliances, with nothing scheduled so far for either One World or Star Alliance. https://cdn-enterprise.discourse.org/infinite_flight/uploads/default/original/3X/e/d/ed5...Jump to post

More range, Less fuel (1-2%)
Ooooh, this interesting. Apparently, some journalists received an email from airbus containing material abot the deal, and among the files an image for 320&cs100 created back in 9/8/2017 ( Not sure if thats Aug or Sep) ..

The capital of Yemen, Sana'a is not strange to continuous surveillance by drones and/or missiles attack as the war surpassed its second year.

The video itself isn't justifying anything. It's just an explanation on what the Saudi government would do should its airspace is intruded. I have to agree with you about the video. It is just explaining that qr is not allowed into the territories of ksa and if they entered anyway, the plane would ...Jump to post
Despite MIA being ~200 miles longer than ATL, AAB a year ago said Al Baker said their current Airbus A350s do not have the range to serve Atlanta, but that they will reevaluate it once the longer range A350-1000s enter service. I wonder what changed this time? lighter new frames, low load factors, o...Jump to post
Great debate about the various types relative merits, as I said previously unlikely to be anything other than 787's, the FCOM has been produced and the differences courses are being written as we speak.

In the Air Lease (ALC) 2Q17 earnings announcements Airbus received a generous amount of blame for the delays caused primarily by PW powered A320neo and A330neo.

If it's daily then the capacity has been reduced to 770 seats per week and the overall reduction would be 265 seats which I suppose isn't that much. To clear it up then, QR will operate a daily A319 to Krabi from the 1st of December this year. EDIT: Found out the source of this mixup... Routesonlin...Jump to post
QR downgrades Krabi from A330/B787 to A319 That is a huge downgrade! If it were to be downgraded then I would've guessed to an A321, maybe an A320. and from 4 weekly to 3 weekly flights according to the link, it going daily from 1 dec ?! https://www.qatarairways.com/en/press-releases/2017/Aug/qatar...Jump to post
Here is how I see it ... Back when EK canceled the 70 A350s and simultaneously added 50 A380s, they took advantage of a leverage they had over Airbus to optimize the fleet for the crowded DXB. I feel it will be a similar story with the new order, though in the opposite direction of decreasing capaci...Jump to post

That is the most rational response in recognizing AZ is a basket case. Either it is majorly restructured, or let it fold. If wound down slowly, there would be no disruption to other parts of the Italian economy. Lightsaber I don't disagree with you. I find Etihad's further adventures to be bizarre....Jump to post
9+ hour meaty route? Almost impossible to achieve from the get go! They have to give up either.
Meaty? PEK, MEL, SYD, NRT .. But all around 4k nm and better upgraded with frequencies rather than equipment if needed
9+ hour? CDG, AMS .. requires patience at first
The issue wasn't weight or fuel, it was a high speed landing on a wet runway. The wait was for weather to improve. I found I video of captain's announcement to pax about the delay

Interesting topic ! To be honest, I was surprised the A350 sold that much in NA in the first place. I am sure the airliners at the time saw that the A350 would play an important role in their fleets. I think the deferrals, cancellations and possible future cancellations are due to a number of factor...Jump to post
