I assume NK is doing indoc at DTW now with the new facility, now wonder why they’re expanding pretty rapidly from DTW.

The chart below illustrates the production ramp-up at BFM. The trend line (in red) clearly shows how Airbus went up from 1 aircraft to 4 aircraft per month. Also, as they managed 5 and 6 deliveries in November and December respectively, perhaps that's a sign about what to come in the future.

The increase at the end could just mean the usual end of the year Airbus delivery push though?
On another note, happy to see that Mobile will start building the first neo next year! With the A320neo delivery to Air Asia from TSN this year, all the FALs will be producing neos!

Well yes, but being a new factory it's good to see that BFM can already deliver 5-6 airplanes in a single month if it needs to. If further production ramp-up is required, BFM will be ready.

I’m on N985JT tonight, and noticed that it doesn’t have the LED beacon/taxi lights that some XFW built birds do. How come?

The light modules are interchangeable LED/Incan. If the first spare on the shelf was the old style, it goes flying on the new bird.

Bregier was pleased that they had "hit rate 4" at their 2017 orders and deliveries press conference.I suppose 4 deliveries a month will be the new average.

And finally a 5th airline produced at BFM unless I’ve missed some
Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)
