@Airbus Congratulations @KuwaitAirways on your two first #A330neo! AirplaneAirplane Already no stranger to the #A330 with a fleet of five, Kuwait Airways will benefit from the new A330neo’s unbeatable economics and efficiency – the ideal aircraft to operate as the world adapts post-COVID19.
@jonostrower There is no new 200 to 250-seat single-aisle being seriously floated by Boeing, but immediately prior to the pandemic the company was looking at a 5th generation revamp of the 737 — known internally as the 5G.
@jonostrower What’s evident in the consideration of a 5th generation overhaul (757-izing) the 737 or even a clean-sheet design is that Boeing’s position still requires it to spend billions to challenge the A321neo.
@LeehamNews Holy cow. @Boeing CEO David Calhoun just gave a warning of sorts about EIS of 777X. Already pushed back to 2022, he said on earnings call certification could push it back further.
@qatarairways Meet the newest addition to the #QatarAirways fleet – a trio of @airbus A350s delivered on the same day. A7-ANO, A7-ANQ, and A7-ANR are ready to support the sustainable recovery of travel on our network.
