@airinsight . @BoeingAirplanes seems to have resumed deliveries of the 787. On Thursday, @TurkishAirlines took delivery of LN 1021, a 787-9.
@ByERussell Airbus hopes to “hit the defrost button” on Project Sunrise with Qantas “as soon as possible,” says Scherer. Project Sunrise was Qantas’ competition between Airbus and Boeing for an ultra long-range jet to fly nonstop from Sydney to London and New York.
@ByERussell Airbus maps production rate increases for A220 and A320s, says EVP programmes & services Philippe Mhun. A220 to 6/month by early 2022 from 5/month today. Target 14/month mid-2020s. A320neo to 45/month by year-end from 40/month today. Target 75/month in 2025.
@ByERussell Eurowings Discover will add A320s, in addition to pre-planned A330s, to its fleet by this winter, says Spohr. It’s beginning to sound more like Eurowings, except that Discover’s focus will be connectivity with Lufthansa in Frankfurt.
@ByERussell “Fleet renewal is the quickest, most feasible thing to do” to meet carbon targets, says KLM CEO Pieter Elbers.
