That's not obvious. They are selling 127+100 of E1s, and only 46+24 E2s. Make you worry about the E2, and therefore Embraer.

For God sakes, so because a few people have peanut allergies, the rest of us get punished. Typical. What about the person that brings their own snack mix on board that includes peanuts?

Good call, Undisclosed orders are often for China.
Your fears are like stating you fear serving a car crash at 100kph impact, you won't. If the crash exceeds 9G, you cannot be saved. Only G trained individuals in G suits in very specific directions can. Lightsaber sorry to be a bit nitpicky, but the human body can sustain many times 9gs, as long as...Jump to post
I’ve heard that many of the 330’s are heading to Eurowings Swiss and SN. Some of the the 777 may be heading to Swiss and Austrian. The 320, 787 and 350 will form the backbone of the new fleet. I’ve also heard that ADAC are in total panic mode over the midfield terminal. Their debt covenants are bas...Jump to post

While i think that new and profitable routes will emerge, isn't it a bit exaggerated?

Looks like the 797 is coming soon. Very soon. Maybe even within a month, if it follows the 787 timeline. Exciting! Very exiting!!!!!!! I’m glad to always see Innovation from all aircraft manufacturers! I think Delta is gong to be a large operator of this, as they have the most 757/767s, but we’ll s...Jump to post
However, Lufthansa is not interested in any more A380 superjumbos even though they are available cheaply, Spohr said.

I suspect that is not a two week turn around.
Fingers crossed for 797 :) By the way, I think it is the perfect time to launch the program. Airbus is not at a position to counter this program due to the recent changes at the management level. Do they need to respond to 797 is another topic. Time will tell. Airbus is in a very good position to c...Jump to post
This is Jon Ostrower's new gig.
I'm going to predict some white tails and or cancellations. For an airline that doesn't exist yet, operating out of a smallish airport (only 1.5 Million in 2017), to suddenly expand to the size of a relative large airline with the market it needs to survive in a couple of years, I'm going to be ver...Jump to post
Honestly everyone is out here talking bout the 787 and I'm sitting like ''This is a startup. From Vietnam. And they have ordered 46 planes before they launch. AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO FINDS SOMETHING WRONG HERE'' AFAIK they're owned by a large conglomerate that are looking to expand into the rapid gro...Jump to post

In a couple of years time Boeing could be producing more 767's than 777's. Quite possible. I imagine the airforce will allocate more funding for additional tankers. And don't forget that other branches of the military (including national guard units) all operate tankers as well. And of course there...Jump to post

@ lightsaber, how much would air india's planes be expected to sell for at auction? If boeing sells new 789s for like 120 million, will buyers expect a massive discount off that price? or would it be near what it would be worth had AI sold airframes normallyJump to post
I wonder why purple/magenta was chosen over something within the existing UA color pallet? The economy and Polaris seats are a darker blue.

This is the year the 797 becomes a reality. No way Boeing waits another year for Paris next year (as satisfying as it would be to see it announced on Airbus's turf.) Look for several launch customer orders and a firm configuration announcement. No 797 launch until there is a firm engine plan, and I...Jump to post
If Airbus or Boeing actually create a new type for project sunrise would BA pick up a few frames for these kinda routes? Seems like they could stick a premium heavy frame on the route and make a decent amountJump to post

FAA must be in Boeing’s pocket.
