  • OPINION: Oil's well for the airframers

    News | 20 Jan 2015 09:58

    ​When Airbus and Boeing opted to launch re-engined versions of their A320 and 737 families rather than develop all-new narrowbodies, their logic was that – while the industry was happy with the design, reliability and capacity of their current single-aisle offerings – long-term high oil prices would spur a rush by airlines to replace their aircraft with less-thirsty alternatives. From their viewpoint, upward pressure on Brent Crude was a good thing, in that it forced airlines to invest in more efficient equipment.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OPINION-Oils-well-for-the-airframers-408054/
