@Airlineroute Primera Air to lease Boeing 757 for London Stansted – Newark  19APR18 – 04AUG18 and London Stansted – Boston 18MAY18 – 28MAY18, replacing A321neo.

@e_russell  “All of these 47 aircraft are going to replace 47 aircraft, its not adding to the widebody fleet, but it will help us tremendously from a commonality standpoint.” -Kerr

@jonostrower AA’s 787 decision is a big win for Boeing. A350 order always questionable after the U.S. Airways merger. Next step: 787-8/9 replacing 767, A330 & 777-200ER (& deferring 40 Max 8s), what AA is saying is that they don’t want to wait for NMA. The 1st of 100 A321neos arrives in 2019.

@jonostrower Do not underestimate the influence (and fallout) of AA’s 2011 single-aisle order. It completely reshaped Boeing product strategy and it’s the reason the 737 Max exists today at all. Boeing wanted American back in its camp.

@winglets747 Low risk of passenger-to-freight 777 conversions cannibalizing sales of new-build 777Fs. Conversions have inherent inefficiencies. 777 conversion would likely be used on short-haul cargo flights. New build 777F for longer flights.

@winglets747 The old saying was an unprofitable 747-400 flight could become a very profitable 777-300ER flight. Now the paradigm is changing towards 787, A350, 777-9.
