Itís for that reason it seems like we are headed for a single fleet. Hoping for at least 100-150 MAX orders!
Soooo.. silence means we arenít interested. Weíve been silent on a fleet plan for over 3-years. That must mean we are only interested in being a credit card company...oh wait 😜

The interest is in Horizon and Skywest. I think Compass May come up for grabs too.

It wonít be 200, maybe in the 50ish range for retirements plus FO attrition. Thereís nothing else to currently drive hiring, Airbus aircraft are leaving and obviously the max deliveries are not happening at the moment obviously.

Maybe so, Max certification got pushed again to mid 2020.

150-200 in 2020. Subject to change. Max delay is not helping.

Why hasnít it been certified by now? The MCAS software is fixed. Now they are having issues with dumb things, stuff that is already on the 737-NG fleet. The latest issue being something about the self power up test when the plane is first energized with electrical power. Wow! Itís almost as if the FAA was sleeping when the NGs were certified.

I would certainly like to be wrong and your numbers be correct, but what is possibly driving those kind of hiring numbers?

Nearly 40 for retirements, probably the same for resignations, so 80-ish just to tread water.
