Re: IndiGo mulls up to 25 A321LR aircaft

The CFM Leap can't deliver the same max. thrust as the PW1100G, so if you want to get the most out of your A321NLR, you really need the PW engines. That being said, with today's PW engines your NEO LR is going nowhere... IMO, the A321NEO LR is a great concept, but it's not a B752 yet. :bored: Geez ...

Airbus orders for January:

5 A320ceo (Spirit Airlines)
15 A320neo (CALC)

5 cancellations for A320neo

27 deliveries, incl 4 A350-900s and 2 A330-300's

Re: Reuters: United to consider Airbus A321 NEO.

Boeing's central challenge with MOM/NMA is to define a market position where the A321neo or a rewinged version thereof has trouble competing, the same way the MAX 9/10 have trouble competing with the A321neo today. The biggest MOM/NMA needs to be bigger than a reasonable A321 stretch; have better C...

The sense of activity around the A321NEO and -LR are interesting indeed.
Some predict that these models will capture half of the NEO backlog. I am sure we'll see many conversion, but hopefully a flurry of new orders too.

Oh I am not disagreeing that the A321neo sold more. But using 85% of the current total order market share to make your point is a very misleading when one plane has been available 4-5 years longer than the other. Even an eventual 60:40 split annually is very different from 85:15. Fair enough. I did...

The Max is roughly a year behind the NEO. 15 month behind in first flight. Sales per year brings it to approx 45/55 split. The Max10 only just launched. Max family sales wou...
