Never thought of Britannia the aircraft. Thanks for that, I remember them well. Another old fart.

It's no coincidence that Euravia changed its name to Britannia around the time that they introduced the Bristol Britannia. And when you rename yourself Britannia then why not have queen Boudica on the tail?

So the catalyst for Euravia changing its name to Britannia was because of the new aircraft type..... not so they could paint Queen Boudica on the tail. Hope that makes sense.

It's pretty common knowledge within the company, not sure about sources though sorry.

Can't argue with Andrew Swaffield's concerns; there's a lot at stake.

According to Jethro's 8 737-8 MAX's will be delivered in 2018. The A320's and A321's will also begin returning to their lessors then as well (I assume G-ZBAR and the ex. BMI A321's will be the first to go)

Anyone know if the 737 8 max are the 189 pax config or are they going for the max 200 with 200pax config?

I read 8 are due next year, any ideas on the where they will be based? Will it be one base or spread out?

Exciting times ahead

Will the 737's have extra leg room seats as the current Airbus fleet? So sorry that they have turned their back on Europe and gone for Boeing?

They have not turned their back on Europe just because they have chosen Boeing wow! It's a business and they will go for the best deal and opted for the equipment that they have deemed best to suit their needs. It's not all about politics.

As for extra legroom seats i would presume so. It's a good additional revenue earner for an airline like ZB. However i wouldnt expect to see the final seating plans / config until the routes and bases are confirmed.

The truth is that they missed the boat to obtain some early Neo delivery slots and the order size was not going to generate any discounts from Airbus.
Monarch have converted 15 options into firm orders today but surprisingly have specifed the Max8 rather than larger units. Surprising because this means that there will be nothing to replace the A321s

They must have got a incredible deal from boeing to take the max over the neo..
Strong rumours the engineering branch is going to end up being sold to boeing

Read my post carefully Rachetring. The previous owners didn't spend a penny from 1999 onwards. They wanted to be rid of the airline and its pension fund. If we had been able to negotiate for new aircraft we may have been able to negotiate some Neo slots but as an established customer and with a relatively small fleet the discounts were not there.
Nothing happened apart from the cancellation of the B787 order. There must have been some value in the deposit paid for the widebodies and Boeing saw an opportunity aided by Seabury to gain an order. This is now why four hundred pilots are going to be converted to Boeing.
I fully believe that the relationship between Mael amd Boeing will continue to become further entwined, but I doubt it will be full ownership.
