And they're comin' to America....

One of my favorite quotes from Emirates:

In a sign of the Gulf's increasing power in the industry, Emirates Chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said he was confident of a shift in stance in the West that would allow the group to fly more of its planes to airports there.

"We are buying a product from their countries. So why would they not allow us to fly to these airports? If they don't, they can take their planes back," he said.

A group representing U.S. airline pilots, meanwhile, warned that the sale of hundreds of planes to Gulf carriers that compete with U.S. carriers would have "serious consequences for the U.S. economy and U.S. airline workers."

the oldest 777300 er is now 10 years old. 2017 was the date stated at a fleet planning meeting. 777x s 2021 at the earlist, I would guess 2022 to start . there is @ 50 777300ers still on order .

If there ever was a statement that deserved a finger wag, this is it.

If he doesn't like it, then he can buy the fantastic aircraft that Dubai designs and builds.

And I bet that 80% will go to passenger to freighter conversion.

You know what I would love? If the Middle East stopped subsidizing all their airlines and if Europe stopped subsidizing Airbus production. Let's see everyone compete then.

And then we respond: "They can take their oil back." See how that works? It goes both ways. But let's be honest, neither is a credible threat.

ESP since we get less than 5% of our oil from the Middle East.

Lol. Ok boss. Go all Airbus then. Have fun finding one equivalent to the 777.
