Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

From a customer perspective, the 8,000 foot dry air cabin of the 1993 era A330 can't compete with the 6,000 foot humidified cabin of the 787. And didn't a lot of folks say that Boeing was gving screaming deals on the 787 now? For these reasons, imho this is a transfer of the A350 deferred airplanes...

Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

Perhaps Airbus can stretch the legs of the A350-1000 and Delta might take a few of them. At least they are finally getting their fleet rationalized. In about a decade it should be down to A350, A330ceo/neo, A321ceo/neo, and A220. Whether they keep the 739 around is a wild card. If they continue to ...

Will the NEOs have PS? If not it may not be a huge capacity increase over the 763s/764s when you count in the reduction of regular economy for more Delta Ones and Premium Selects (and maybe more Comfort+?)

From what I have heard, they will have both Delta One Suites and Premium Select.

If Delta really wants to go for a smaller widebody in the next few years, I think they should order the 797. Define next few years, 797 not likely to EIS before 2025 at earliest (if you believe Boeing and maybe 2 years later if you believe other aviation pundits). You need something in any number s...

Re: Reuters: Airbus likely sold 10 A330neo jets to Delta

Yes, the 777-200ER will need replacement in the coming years (at least 10 years). But, why is Delta giving the aircraft a major overhaul if “the airline is in such a rush to retire them”? If that were the case, then the A332/A333 should have been the ones to get Delta One Suites, Premium Select, pos...
