Why grounding 737 MAX jets is a big deal for Boeing

Why grounding 737 MAX jets is a big deal for Boeing- Forwardernews.com

It's too early to know how long the grounding will last or what the ultimate fallout will be, but the news is not good for Boeing.
China's decision to ground the planes came after a second 787 MAX 8 crash in less than six months. An Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed Sunday and a Lion Air flight from Indonesia went down in October.
"A suspension in China is very significant, as this is a major market for Boeing," said Greg Waldron, Asia managing editor at aviation research firm Flightglobal.

Qatar Airways Will Retire the Airbus A380 In Favor of The Boeing 777X-Forwardernews

Qatar has been operating the A380 since 2014 and has 10 of them in their current fleet. They serve destinations including London Heathrow, Sydney, Melbourne and Guangzhou.
It’s been a hard start to 2019 for the A380 program. Once the pinnacle of aviation engineering, these massive jets are now viewed as old fashioned and inefficient, leading multiple carriers to cancel orders in favor of newer, more efficient alternatives.
The demise of the A380 program seems almost inevitable now, and Simple Flying predicts they could announce the end of the program as soon as tomorrow, as part of their full-year earnings results.

ETOPS is an acronym for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards. ETOPS certification allows twin-engine aircraft to fly more than 60 minutes flying time away from the nearest airport that is suitable for an emergency landing.
The new approval for the Airbus A330neo is for ETOPS 285 min. This means that the aircraft is permitted to fly on a route which is not further than 285 minutes flying time with one engine inoperative from the nearest airport that can be used for an emergency landing.

World's longest flight route review: Singapore Airlines SQ22 to New York

Even Richard Quest, host of CNN's Quest means Business show and the best-known aviation correspondent on the planet, will be hosting an online Q & A session from the comfort of business class. The Newark flight is front-page news in Singapore's The Straits Times, and a leading item on most of the news channels.
Why? Because, if successful, SQ22 will re-establish Singapore Airline (SIA) as the holder of commercial aviation's equivalent of the "Blue Ribbon" fought over so fiercely between the great Transatlantic liners before jets made ships such as the Queen Mary obsolete.

Aeroflot has good six months for cargo-win situation-Forwardernews

The news for freight was good. Cargo revenue rose by 13.9% year-on-year to RUB 8,178m as cargo and mail volumes grew by 10.6%.
The carrier as a whole saw revenue rise by 13.2% year on year to reach RUB265,822, but earnings fell dramatically year on year, largely as a result of high fuel prices pushing up costs, and the airline made a net loss over the period.
