    Even worse, Martyn, than a 10-across 777/380. That was the point I made in our March feature “Narrow margins.”

    Until recently the thinking was that long-haul, low-cost wouldn’t work because savings weren’t possible. The failure of several budget carriers on long-haul routes provided the evidence.

    But the arrival of these revised, essentially short-haul, aircraft like the B737 MAX and Airbus A320LR plus low fuel prices has changed matters.


    Boeing has announced that the B737 MAX 8 (the B737 which Norwegian will use for transatlantic service) has been FAA certified.

    Deliveries to airlines will commence in the coming months.


    “A full A32x on a 5-7 hour flight is not pleasant”. Agree and going to get much worse when BA go to 28″ seat pitch over the next few months….in economy AND Club Europe!
