The gear doors are so weird.
737MAX first delivery date has been changed.. it’s now earlier! [x]
Alaska to drop out of all international codeshares in SEA... except for those with Delta. -
News on DLNET, Delta Employee Intranet, Alaska will drop its current roster of international partners out of SEA and use Delta exclusively. Anyone know more info on this? Seems a bit odd for Alaska…
Hollah! Let the merger speculations begin..
Boeing’s future wide-body lineup. [x]
Missing the 787-8.
Important to note that the 777X seems to have a new tail, added hatch exit (between the last exit and the one over the wing), and all the other improvements we’ve been expecting.
Oh, and an 11’ (132”) fan diameter. Up from 128”. That means you can expect a 12’ (143”) jet engine..! That is three inches bigger than a 737NG’s interior cabin!
CIT Group has announced an order for 30 737 MAX 8. [x]
Doing pretty well at Paris Air Show 2013, Boeing!

Your Own Little

When you’re driving down an Irish lane and an anonymous castle jumps unannounced from around the bend, it is an intimate moment with the country – especially when you realize it’s not a frilly castle sitting there waiting for ticket sales. It doesn’t have opening hours or a gift shop and roped-off nooks you are forbidden to see. This one is all yours.
DELTA sponsors Seattle Pride 2013. Cool.
Korean Air announce orders for five 747-8i and six 777-300ER. [x]
KE 747-8i has long been speculated. Finally ordered!
This basically shows that there is a market case for the 747-8i. KE operates a large fleet of both the A380 and 77W. Yet, they still have room for the 748i. Why? Becuase they’re all in different market segments (something I’ve been saying for a long time).
Your airline just has to be big enough to capture all markets.
Wanted to say something about the 787-10. You know how it’s basically the 777-200’s replacement, etc.? Well if you treat 787-10 like a mathematical equation.. you get.. 777. :)
Remember when I threw a little party because Delta Air Lines’ CEO, Richard Anderson, said, “if the 787-10 were available today, we’d buy it”?
Well, the 787-10 is now available.. and seeing as to how NO CEO has been that crass about stating wants, not even Al-Baker or Tim Clark, Delta is definitely going to order the 787-10. And the 787-9. And have a shit ton of the entire 787 family. Because it’s exactly what they’ll need to replace their 767 and 777. The only question is when.
