I suppose they would look at London as their first European destination. Wouldn't a B767 be more suitable for an airline like this? LON is roughly nine hours away which isn't that far. Good luck to Sudan Airways, they'll need it given that they are sandwiched between Egyptair and Ethiopian. FYI LHR...Jump to post

Please tell me which Indian businessman flies from BLR to SIN landing in the morning and flies back to BLR that same day? I know some big shots in BOM and MAA do it but only out of extreme necessity as they always spend one night minimum in order to enjoy themselves. Those that do this same day retu...Jump to post
This will unfortunately rapidly lead to higher losses overall for KQ.
There is no way this flight can fly nonstop year round with a full payload. They should have flown it via ACC in order to allow convenient two way connections via ACC to ROB + FNA hence diversifying their passenger portfolio base.
Starting 2/1 DOH-PHL Dep 8am Arr 2:10pm PHL-DOH 8:15pm Arr 4:35pm PHL will gain 25 additional destinations via better connections through DOH. PHL local paxs are likely supporting this flight. I can't imagine there are a ton of connections from cities like CVG, JAX, BDL, PVD to non-India destinatio...Jump to post
CS3 is ideal to replace their entire B736/737 fleet with A320neos replacing B738s.Jump to post
The A351 wont be able to fly 15-16.5 hours nonstop with a full payload no matter what Airbus tells VN. The A359 can do it for VN as can the B789 but neither will the B781 nor A351 ! Cant VN order the A359ULR and just focus its WB fleet around the A350/B787 families rather than add a 3rd variant i.e....Jump to post

Tunisair currently has a fleet of 16 A320s + 4 A319s + 7 B736s + 2 A332s.

CTU ORD and SHE VIE will just bleed heavily for Hainan and die a slow death.

ORD does not have that high demand to BKK KUL CGK SIN ORD SGN to warrant a new service. SQ is bette...Jump to post
On a more serious note, 6Es CEO did mention in sept that they were actually looking towards the A332 mainly and replicating the same business model as that of Level for their long haul operations.Jump to post
In reality, the B797 for TK can fly 6,700km nonstop from IST with a full payload of pax (210-220) + cargo (7-8 tons) and not 9,000km. So this means it can fly maximum: Southbound to Lusaka Eastbound up to Dhaka or Colombo Westbound up to Greenland The main usefulness of the B797 for TK initially is ...Jump to post
Zimbabwe as some have rightly pointed out doesn't need a national carrier for at least another 10 years. What the Govt can do is let another airline form a de facto national carrier and pay a small royalty to the HRE Govt annually such as 1-2% of total revenue which can be used then on other essenti...Jump to post

Through my fleet planning experience now with 3 different airlines I have concluded the following : 1. Whatever official stated range of a Boeing aircraft it is to be penalized by -25% to get somewhat of a realistic flying range assumption. 2. However for Airbus that penalty rises to -30% from the o...Jump to post
I would have rather have them do ADD-LOS-IAH 3-4 weekly on the B787/A359 as its way higher yielding + bigger demand.
ORD most likely will also end up being operated via DUB but I reckon it will be on the B789 or A359 as the B788 may not be able to operate with a full payload nonstop from ORD to ADD.
In North America it should be YYZ and MIA with WS/AA code share.
In Europe it should be MXP MAN and I agree that DXB can work provided they agree to codeshare/interline with EK or FZ beyond to GCC/Africa.
I expect many airlines who have in the past ordered both the B738M and B739M to switch their B739M orders to the larger -10M variant like how WS has done so here. The difference in capacity between the B7M8 and B7M9 is not that much but versus the 7M1 there is a bit.Jump to post
Yes I agree that upgauging from E70 to CS3 is a bit too much as I also thought that the CS1 would be a better fit. Probably MS realized that the residual value of the CS3 down the road plus its higher capacity would come in handy down the road ? I don't understand why they are ordering A320neo when ...Jump to post

ACs incremental orders should be for CS3s and B789s mainly as these are the best aircraft for them in the long run.Jump to post
The dates of these flights are ultra peak and very high yielding. It is just an extra service for the peak winter travel period so nothing that big to talk about. In fact if EK really wanted to be aggressive and take advantage of the situation, they should have this flight between 14-23DEC and 03-10...Jump to post

I forgot to add one more prospective client which is BA Cityflier replacing their 6 E70s plus 14 E90s with 20 CS1s all based out of LCY airport. I believe LCY can handle the CS1.

If D7 only has future expansion plans focused on the Austral-Asia region then it does not need the A359 at all.

Logically, I see HA converting their A338neos to the A359.
The only way I see Boeing winning this order for 25-30 B789s is if they submit a highly attractive price point for such a big B789 order which includes buying off HA's A332 fleet and paying the penalty to cancel their pending Airbus WB order.
I could see them going for a combo of all 787 variants considering the 789 is smaller than the 77E, and more like an A330, while the 78J has the ideal capacity (then again my judgement isn't the best since anytime I hear replacement I say 35K or 78J). But seriously the 787 is the ideal plane for th...Jump to post

Really dislike the 787. Would have hoped that MS would go for the A350 instead. MS currently deploys the 77W to JFK, YYZ, LHR, DXB, CAN plus rotations to JED, RUH, DMM and KWI. MS is restarting a weekly CAI-NRT flight on the 77W as well. So they need a 77W type aircraft on a bunch of routes either ...Jump to post
