This was floated originally when the 777 was first being designed. A bit ahead of it's time.
Because every single airline in the US always goes and will go cheap. Following Cubana's news, nothing good will come down the road in the US market. Just hoping for the best tbh.Jump to post

Some US airlines use 2 captains and 2 FOs for flights greater than 12 hours.
Well then we will pay for it. Enjoy it. This is what so many of you always wanted. The Europeans have never respected the USA in my lifetime. Its criticism 24/7. Respect is to be earned, not deserved. Childish attitudes like this one is what make you what you are and look like. And more down the ro...Jump to post

I am not sure if this has already been discussed. I was viewing the Wikipedia page of Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport and I noticed that neither Emirates, Etihad nor Qatar Airways serve Tel Aviv.

...however it is also no secret that it has lost a number of campaigns to the 787 simply because airlines find its list price too high. Wrong, A350s don't compete with 787s, they'll lose where their features are not needed, not because it's expensive. It actually competes with the 777 family, and i...Jump to post

You can use the C series of course, but you are probably going to be leaving money on the table. Low cost tests (compared to other options) on heavy J configurations could be an option.

Haha. Then Europe would have to pay for its own defense costs. Brilliant. The reaction here is silly. Europe is not going to do anything that will lose it money, that is its driving force.

Using that logic one can state that at least cabin panels in the A350 dont fall on top of passengers getting people injured. But that would be biased and unfair, am I right?

I reckon they will cancel the 787 order outright and sell all the 787s that they already have. At the same time, they will increase the A350 order, order a dozen more A380s, and keep the A321 neo.
