Tweets of the day:
@dominicgates Airbus’s John Leahy tells CFM and GE to get with his A320neo ramp-up plan. Otherwise, “I only offer airplanes with Pratt engines.” #PAS15.
@dominicgates Easyjet looking at massive A320 order, 100+.
@ghimlay Al Baker hopes Qatar will be first to operate 777-8X. “Ray is very kind to me,” he jokes #pas15.
@Lebeaucarnews @BoeingAirplanes re-affirms target of delivering a record 750-755 airplanes this year. $BA. #ParisAirShow.
@thatjohn #PAS15 #CSeries: Swiss doesn’t expect to need to retain a bridge fleet of Avro RJs as it receives its CS100 fleet from next year.
@thatjohn #PAS15 #CSeries: Swiss to run 2-3 layout thought, with 32″ in business zone and 1-2 layout — so Eurobusiness with one seat free either side.
@thatjohn #PAS15 #CSeries: Swiss’ second tranche of 10 CSeries in ’17 will be CS300. Last 10 in ’18 CS100/300, undecided yet.
@timjue Airbus’s Leahy on the A321: No plans to stretch that even further. Buy an A330 regional if you need additional capacity. #PAS15.
@winglets747 The hurdle for many people to clear is the false notion that airlines are only about airplanes, or airplanes are even a majority of concerns.
