@AvWeekScho .@FlyAirNZ expects to announce 777-200 replacement decision in April-June quarter (its Fiscal Q4).
@jonostrower Nearly 22 years of Next Generation 737 deliveries are coming to a close soon. I can only see a single NG (for Delta) on the field in Renton. All the rest are 737 Max.
@jonostrower You can draw a straight line between Mubadala selling the Chrysler Building, Etihad canceling A350s and 777X and Emirates backing away from the A380.
@R_Wall Airbus not interested in stretching A350-1000 to challenge Boeing’s 777X.
@SpaethFlies Sources indicate German govmt VIP transport arm #Flugbereitschaft #Luftwaffe @bundeswehrInfo might take over an @Airbus #A350 delivery slot from @airmauritius to ensure prompt delivery after embarrassing AOG incidents for #Merkel and others.
