I understand Qantas is looking at A320s to replace 737s for the very issues outlined in the OP. The cost is not only of having people off work, it is a known hazard where an equipment change can prevent injury. There is a large differance in the injury rate between Qantas that uses 737s and Jetstar ...Jump to post

I have to call you on that one as it most certainly is in their manuals.

It seems that "Aircraft Payload-Range Analysis for Financiers" definition for OEW matches your definition of DOW. Do you agree ? No, DOW changes on a route to route basis, because the number of crew, crew luggage, and catering changes for each route. DOW is not one fixed number for an air...Jump to post
You are suppose to have you right hand in this case on the thrust levers and initiate the application of power while pushing the TOGA switch. However that was not in their manuals.

The captain had been flagged twice before for long landings, it is speculation the reason for going around was another long landing.

The A359 came in June 2016 in 7 variants: I made the calculation against WV000. A359/WV000 MZFW is 192 000 kg A359/WV000 MSP is 53 300 kg Hence, the A359 OEW is 138 700 kg What you are calculating is DOW, not OEW, DOW is BEW plus 3-6 tonnes in typical airline use. Basically you need to take the wei...Jump to post
Even 3000nm - so 25% below her believed MZFW range - puts most of Europe and Africa and all of the Middle East and India within it. So even if a 787-10 has to unload 25% of her MZFW fuel load to get airborne, she'll be able to handle most of the missions EK will likely be using her on. And again, t...Jump to post
Zeke, these planes are certified at 275 correct? So at least for landing charges even if CX operate them at 240 they still pay 275 do they not?

The 787-10 does have a lower MTOW to reference navigation and landing fees, but if this really is a “regional” contest, I would expect the A350-900’s to offer a significant paper de-rate. We operate the A359 with a 240 tonne MTOW regionally, for long haul flights we use 275 tonnes. Same aircraft, c...Jump to post
Which makes me wonder that even while Emirates is talking 787-10 and A350-900 in the RFP, are they also shopping the 787-9 and A350-1000?

Airbus say the A350-900 at an MTOW of 275t and a MZFW of 195t will fly 5 800Nm. That implies 80t of fuel carried, and also 72.5 Nm flown/tonne fuel The payload/range curves in ACAPS are based upon WV000, not WV001, hence MTOW in your sentence there should be 268 tonnes, not 275 tonnes. On a 3000nm ...Jump to post
And I agree with those statement. It just ignores the fact that the 787-10's J seats are more spacious (re: taking up more floorspace) than the A350-900's in those comparisons ;) And not just because of closets and galleys and storage space between doors, but because Boeing's J seats have a pitch 2...Jump to post
And I think 4. (Although I see we have now gone from 6 rows to 5) I made a mistake on my previous post, it should have been 5, let me correct the paragraph for 5 rows.

Zeke appears to be completely unwilling to acknowledge that the 787-10 will fit more seats in it than an A350-900 despite it having a longer passenger cabin. He also won't admit that the 787-10 is expected to weigh less. What I have said up in the thread.... I am more than happy to accept that the ...Jump to post

Regarding the A350-900 vs 777-300ER CASM, the 77W definitely has a CASM advantage versus the smaller 359. If you look at DOC, on a 12 hr flight a 77W will burn over 100 tonnes of fuel, the A350-900 around 70 tonnes. Now in our configuration, the highest density long haul 77W is 340 seats, and the A...Jump to post

Even the Airbus marketing charts show the 787-10 with a capacity advantage over the A350-900, so that is more than just opinion.

And the A380 isn't, Zeke? That's a bit of a silly statement, isn't it? No, as I have consistently have said on these threads EK needs more smaller types, they had a range of aircraft types between the A330-200s to 777-300s doing regional and medium hauls, the 77X is too big and heavy for that role....Jump to post

What surprises me is that EK actually is going to order a bunch of new aircraft. They are deferring A380 deliveries and have pushed their first 777-9 delivery back to 2021.

That assumes QF has a spare A380 or are willing to downgauge another route.
