There has in many countries been some kind of contract between the social classes in the west. All get it better. Right now special in UK and USA this contract seems broken. During the last around 80 years it has been possible to move from working class to middle class, from middle class to upper mi...Jump to post
As a swede I must congratulate the Swedish team. Noone believed this special after Zlatan left the team. Well, a great player with a big ego doesn't always make well playing collective better. Zlatan was no great team player. Well done Denmark. Christian Eriksen was in a class of his own. I don't t...Jump to post

By the way I see that Airbus has been able to play its game quit perfect.
it now has secured A380 until a the industry has one new generation engines done for the replacement cycle of the A380 around 2025. Well done.
In 2025 it will then have more efficient engines then both the A350 and the B779.
I think that for aviation industry and all of us as customers sake I hope that B748F (i I suppose is dead by now), B787, B779, A339, A350, and of course A380 all become success stories in the end. Why? If engineers (I am one even I I work in IT business) shall be able to convince the "bean coun...Jump to post
VAT inside Europe is quit simple; If my Swedish company sells to an EU company the customer balance his incoming VAT against outgoing VAT, meaning that when he sells to his customers he adds his VAT but gets back the VAT that he paid to me. If I sell to an non EU entity I sell without VAT to my cust...Jump to post
Eu now says that UK need to agree to a brexit bill within 2 weeks or no trade negoziations this year;

I (from the USA) will be in the UK in a few days and to the end of next week. I will be interesting to speak to people there as to the Brexit hopefully from a range of the spectrum in support or against it. To me the Brexit vote, much like the election of Donald Trump as USA President, was a protes...Jump to post
It is currently talk about an extension not of 2 years but 20 month where UK is still fully integrated into Eu but without voting power.

Not sure what development costs you're refering to, everyhting todate has been paid and accounted for by Airbus, there is no deferred costs to be written off like with the 787. At the current production rate they are making a small profit on every plane they build, but the amount of profit will dec...Jump to post
There's a related commercial point. A few of our a.net friends would like to see a rework of the 789 and 78J to boost MTOW and payload/range. The current 789 isn't competitive against the 359 at the outer end of the payload/range curve and the 78J can't compete on trans-Pacific routes. But with $26...Jump to post
Delta cares about cargo. Not as much as United, but still about $700 million worth. A plane which is maxed out with pax and bags can't carry cargo. And since a 77L can fly 18 hours fully loaded (160000 lb payload), that's plenty of cargo to SYD, or JNB. The A350 in it's current form can't match tha...Jump to post

But why buy a 778x when you can normally fly an A350 for the same cash if you don't know you can fill the beast? In the case of the ME3, they know they can. They start these routes with ~250 seat 777-200LRs and move up to ~350-seat 777-300ERs (of which they block seats in order to make the required...Jump to post
The 779 will need to show a real nice introduction with numbers on or over expectations while the 35k comes closer and closer 77w in performance each day with much less weight and fuel consumtion.Jump to post
The main question here that is asked: "fast enough?" The current considered run of 1300 frames will probably not recover all investments and production cost, the USD 30 billion. So now we talk about what 1500? 1800? frames before all is repaid. This is probably total OK if the current gene...Jump to post
Would it not be smarter for LH to skip the 777x? The deposits can be changed to 787 used into the LH group.
Also LH has complained about the 777x to much is defined by ME3. Perhaps the A350 9 and 10 improvements and better then expected performance is giving results?
Yeah, just because the RR 7000 is based on the TEN does not mean it is as efficient.
Well top management of LH has been talking about that LH has too many 779 on order. Independent if it is correct that the 34 options for 779 lapsed this means no more 779 to LH. If 20 779 go down to let say 12-15 frames how do LH do its purchases from Boeing? 748 seems to be an error now 779 seems t...Jump to post
Considering that until today the 2 most successful production runs, B777 and the A330/340 has around 2000 produced / on order how many 100 787 can be considered as early examples?Jump to post
The biggest challenge to selling the 787 is a lack of availability. The number of A330neo sales is anemic as most airlines understand there is no opportunity to finance the aircraft: it is a good airplane, but with such a niche engine/operator market that the residual value will poor. Strong demand...Jump to post
What has been described is a clear business case for A333Neo. Can be produced and sold for USD 100 million. If A333NEO is 30-40% less expensive compared to B789 and with efficiency within 1-2% from B789 for 80-90% of its missions, it will be sold in big quantities as long as Boeing need to handle it...Jump to post
