The NEOs are still being planned out, but those would be transcon/HI. Right now, LAX 757 does very little HI flying, so no impact there. The 757 will shift a lot more to hub to hub flying which has already begun. The 757 fleet will be here until 2030 minimum. Only the really old ones will go. LAX and SFO 757 bases are going nowhere for a long time.
Per an Airbus fleet manager, the first 321 NEO arrives in October of this year and the first 321 XLR arrives in the 4th quarter of 2025.

The Evac, proving runs and ETOPS flights are scheduled for September. It should hit the line in October.

XLR? Guess they are going to have to call it the SXLR. (Somewhat extra long range)

Article says about 200 NM. Shouldn’t really be a game changer IMO.

that is 4% less than promised. That is a big deal to the people that agreed to but the airplane. You must be a pilot.

200nm from Europe to the US is not the same as going the other way. Easy to divert in the US. Not so much in Europe. So for planning, a 200nm loss might add pretty high fuel requirements which in turn shortens the range even further. Hopefully, they’ll be able to get those miles back some day.

thats a lot considering they want to fly it to airports where alternates are required.

deep Europe is pretty much out and now ORD to EUR will
be a stretch.

You’re also mistaken. United isn’t getting any LR’s. They have the standard 321 NEO and XLR on order.

Any truth to the rumors that MCO and LAS will be getting the Bus now that the contract is ratified?
