Readers are reminded to keep their comments on the topic, which - for those who need reminding - is Cathay's move to add another Boeing 777 onto the Sydney-Hong Kong route, not "armchair airline CEO / analyst" takes on other airlines.

Feb 17, 2017, 06.48 PM / Virgin 737 MAX delay
No reason for Virgin Australia to swap to an A320/321neo, they have a solid investment in the Boeing 737 including pilots and engineers, the MAX is simply a next-gen version of this platform.
