Default Possible Plane Order

Boeing is expected to Launch the NMA or 797 at this years Paris Air Show. This plane is going to be a 757/767 replacement. Could be a narrow body but reports suggest a small wide body is being considered.

Spirit is expected to announce a new plane order any day now.

What if Spirit is the Launch Customer of the NMA? Have no idea if we will buy this plane, but I think we could make it work.

The A320 has worked out well for us. As far as a geared engine, name one geared engine that worked correctly on a plane?

If a plane comes out without mechanical issues, I’m sure we can make money with them.

If we were to be the launch customer I would hope we would have another airplane order as well before that one. It takes like 10 years from when an airplane manufacturer goes from R & D on an new airplane till it’s first revenue flight and throw in some production delays.

Paris Air Show is June 23rd 2019. So that time line lines up well with Boeing’s expected Launch Announcement. Customers for the plane would be revealed as well.

Absolutely possible... the 321LR won’t work with our seating configuration. We need an aircraft that has legs and can carry 250-270 pax.

We are more likely to get profit sharing then to order this NMA which doesn’t even exist yet. And the chances of us ever getting profit sharing from this management team are between slim and none and slim just left town.
