Unless I’m mistaken, the winglet on that 339 looks like the old 332/333 winglet, not the 350 winglets that I thought were being adopted by the 338/339.
Potential order is between 40 and 50 aircraft, and SAS has confirmed it is only Airbus that is left in the competition. However, a final order will not come untill spring, and is also dependent on their own cost efficiency programJump to post

Does anyone know the status for the first E190-E2 production aircraft, going to Widerøe? About 3 months to delivery, so production should be under wayJump to post

Articles' salient points : 1. 184 A320 , "soon to be finalized says Macron"( on-top of the 140 A320 order announced by Xi Jinping in Germany mid-2017 ) for 2019-2020 delivery to 13 Chinese airlines 2. 500 Safran-GE engines to be announced soon Does that mean we could see another 324 A320s...Jump to post

If I'm not mistaken Norwegian has long been rumoured to open the connection but as SQ is probably quite unlikely, could Scoot also be a candidate? Singapore is the main unserved destination from Norway, so I think OSL will get its long-awaited service to Singapore within next few years pretty surel...Jump to post
I see from Amadeus that the 7m8 (737 max 8) has only up to 165 seats... is that true? According to Wikipedia , 737 MAX 8 has 189 seats while 737-800 has 186/189 seats. yes, I guess DY/D8 will use the same config, oddly Amadeus gives a lower count. Must be some error in Amadeus, or you checking a fl...Jump to post

Of interest: Airbus Year-End Order Rush Masks Woes Selling Biggest Jets Over 1000 orders, but only 48 are wide-bodies. (carefully stepping over the subsequent fanboy rhetoric).. :) I'll put my cards on the table here and say that, 1000 orders or not, 2017 will be seen as a bad year for Airbus IMO. ...Jump to post
Airbus keeping A380 orders on the book to keep a brave face on a failing program is completely different than the order log it has for A320. At this point, the bigger question is whether Airbus or Boeing have the ability to ramp up to the production speed required to fill these orders rather than h...Jump to post
I assume this only means permission to use the airspace of the southern parts of Russia, and Siberia will stay closed for at least two more years based on recent news. So services will most likely be limited to South East Asia (if more permits are to come). Correct, so it is only applies to destina...Jump to post

Yes, separate AOC
But it is still using the same IATA/ICAO codes (SK/SAS)?
Both suggested options are quite dramatic. Isn't there a "third option" where Norwegian defer deliveries of new planes, ax the most unprofitable routes and consolidate the profitable ones? And then wait a couple of years until they have a sustainable cashflow and their books have improved...Jump to post
How much more do they have to sell. I wonder if this sale covers shortfalls from this quarter or if this to help them through next quarter. One would imagine q1 would be really tough.

I was a little surprised to see the quote from JL in the Delta news post saying that many of these planes would be built in Mobile. I would've expected all, or at least most.
