This is one area of commercial aviation I just do not understand. Just another head-scratching issue that plague this industry.

My fiance is a flight attendant. She sent me a text the other day that due to weight and balance, they had to give out 23 $1300 vouchers for her flight. Insane.

I think it has to do with people not showing up for a flight and still wanting a refund on their ticket. SO it leaves potentially empty seats, money that could be had.

If they don't get the Trent engines off the 787's, they'll be mothballed too.

if airlines have to discard that expensive aircraft in 10 years then it is not worth. how come some of the united 747's were running for 24 years or more with passengers

I don't think they "have to" get rid of them as much as new options, new cabin layouts (First Class Showers etc..) become available on newer models. Older ones are retired for cargo. I know AA sold off all of it's MD-11's to Fed-Ex who still flies them today.

that's the problem w/ those forums (and beyond!): people with not even half-baked "fake information" are chiming in; suggest to educate yourself on Airbus and how the company is structured! Start by googling the CEO.
