Re: Alaska Having Problems with Airbus Aircraft

This just seems like AS whining about it so they make it easier/convince themselves to stick to all Boeing. Easier? They own the airline, they can fly whatever they want without having to convince you and I of its merits. Calm down, it just makes sense that AS is an older Boeing customer so they're...

Re: Jetblue E190 Decision and Europe news

Lots of rumors with little info, so I'll believe it when I see it out of the horse's mouth.

That being said, I would love to see them pick up the C-Series. IF however they go the E2 route, I would hope it would be the E195-E2 and not the E190-E2.
