So actually more -900 order may mean CX is looking at more secondary destination opportunities. This is what I was thinking; the 359 has longer legs than the 359; there's no reduction in the numbers being ordered, just a greater emphasis on the longer range model. As to the A350-1000, does that mea...Jump to post

No, a major airline intentionally schedules it with a plane with inadequate range.
Next flight for MSN 142 TG #7 after paint.

We have LH suspend for winter, now HU cutting flights, and we had in another thread discussion that airlines like BA had weak loads also at SJC.

I know slightly off-topic, but how poorly is CA SJC-PVG doing? What are the load factors? You imply it's the worst performing US-China route. Is HU SJC-PEK doing better? Below 60% for CA's SJC-PVG. HU's SJC-PEK doing slightly better with 77.3% load factor. The problem with SJC is its proximity to S...Jump to post
China is rapidly losing its tarnish amongst corporations. Gone are the 'must be there strategically' positions, replaced more with an 'only if we can make profit' risk appetite. This is a difficult question. I had dinner with two aviation execs in HK on Wednesday last - both major corporations, bot...Jump to post
Indeed UA had a hard time to gain ground in secondary China market. From the most recent DOT published figure, in the relatively hot month of January, HGH - SFO only had a combined load factor of 69%, one of the worst in China - US market, only better than CA's PVG - SJC. In contrast, 3U's HGH - LA...Jump to post
How about 777X?Jump to post
VN-A146 followed her siblings footstep to the SFO.
I was on UA's SFO-XIY flight last fall and it was fairly full both in front and back, but I know nothing about how much everyone paid for their ticket. I was in paid J and the price was similar to what I'd pay to fly to PEK instead. One possible issue is the flight was not daily, and the FAs I talk...Jump to post

Who will get the 100th A350? I think we are at 97 now although the tracking sheet says 94. I add on the two ntu frames that were delivered to the lessor but remain at TLS and the Delta first frame which is delivered but having post delivery installs done also at TLS. MSN 117 is getting delivered in...Jump to post
Side note on A350s - most carriers who started with (relatively) low numbers of A350, are now topping up, as is probably with this order as well (CI). An indication of happy customers? Cheers, Adam For sure they have proven to be extraordinary airliners. But one thing to note that CAS is a Chinese ...Jump to post

UA's 789 takes a full load of passengers and some cargo on nearly every flight. Rarely (occasionally in the winter), does it need to block a few seats. Most days, it won't even need to block seats on the upcoming LAX-SIN leg. Airbus fans never want to admit how great the 787 is. I work for UA in op...Jump to post
Fact check.....the SIN to SFO flight has zero cargo and limited pax and bags. . Who told you that? I often depart from SFO in the morning. I can tell you from my observation that a good amout of cargo were unloaded after arrival from SIN. Westbound could be a little worse but no way like what you s...Jump to post

NEOs are delivered almost daily now. There's no point to keep track of the exact number of deliveries otherwise this is gonna be a delivery thread.Jump to post
787 is a no in the foreseeable future as they just cancelled their entire order for 787 not a while ago. Given that the order was inherited from NW as a launch order, the price must have been awesome. But it's well known that over-capacity is the problem for most carriers including DL. There might b...Jump to post
