Is there any info on when SpiceJet would get their first MAX? No firm dates as not in the production list yet but according to an article last week the first will be delivered by August and a further 14 by March 2019. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.livemint.com/Companies/K1IzfFZkap4RPF7wptfziM/Sp...Jump to post

That's impressive, I didn't think QR would upgauge this route, and with 77Ws too! A little off topic, but does anyone know if/when the QR 77Ls are getting the QSuites retrofitted? QR would be very strongly considered in me Asia trip ex LAX if the 77Ls were retrofitted by next Dec/ Jan. No plans yet...Jump to post
Am hearing rumors (scuttlebutt) that BA intends to make PHX 2x daily year-round, and the 787-10 makes this possible surely. As others mentioned if no crew rest area, no matter the plane capability, it can’t fly long haul. I’d imagine PHX is too far with no crew rest. It probably can’t go further th...Jump to post
I might be repeating rubbish gossip, but a captain told me that they were coming without bunks If that is true they won't go to South America or California and probably not Texas either. The B787-10 will NOT have range for South America. It will be US East Coast/Midwest and some African,Middle East...Jump to post

Thank you for the replies. I was fortunate enough to fly in the front 2-4-3 section and did not notice anything regarding seat width; it all felt very normal. From the description, it seems the seats may be less than 17" wide! Do the seats on a 9-abreast 787 and 10-abreast 777 feel wider than ...Jump to post

Another from Leeham. Apparently entering final configuration to be released this year. Maybe they will choose Farnborough Air Show.

A lot happening in the conversions and cancellations area for Airbus.

Not funny my friend, particularly for those in the aircraft. You can't really open a pressurized door on an aircraft.

The more interesting question is can airbus sell the frames already in the pipeline and find someone to carry on the program for the A338 model or do you shut down that program after certification?

Awesome!! Glad to see Hawaiian coming back to the Boeing fold. I wonder though, what are the chances Hawaiian will keep the 2-4-2 seating on the 787? Slim to none I imagine.

Maybe you should add the word “passenger” somewhere since they’re still building the 767. Not to be overly pedantic, but Boeing is building the KC-46 Pegasus, a military cargo/tanker variant.

This is a serious upgrade on J, Hopefully it starts to roll out fleet wide. It's incredible how EK can have one of the better J seats around in the 380 and then such a sub-par option on the 777. It's really bad for brand consistency. While these aren't as good as the 380 options, still loads better...Jump to post

There are mid-cabin solutions that can be retrofitted to any airliner. They appear to passengers as a walled off area but inside are bunk beds where seats were once installed. But I’m sure you’re meaning the hidden ones. Well airbus offer below deck crew rest as a modular solution that can take the...Jump to post
