Keep on going.

Hint, question 7's answer is not all that intuitive, and I'm not being generous on the correct answer!

I done believe the answer to question five is none of the above. SBD or San Bernadino International Airport has no schedule flight service but is still consisted a international airport due to it's runway lenght of 10000+ feet.

No one got them all right. Here are the answers. And if I am completeley off base with number 7, don't hit me too hard!

1) If you are landing on runway 25, which direction are you heading?
d) West

2) If you are flying nonstop from MAN to ORD on a 330, what airline are you on?
d) None of the above. Mnay cought this, as British Midland is BD,

3) What letter of the alphabet can not begins three letter US airport codes?
c) N. I actually am not sure about the other letters and their restrictions. And I should have added that this applies to commercial airports only.

4) Which of these airlines is an acronym?
a) Sabena. As mentioned above, "ANA" is an abbreviation, not an acronym.

5) What constitutes an "International" airport?
c) Customs and immigration facility

6) If you are flying from Los Angeles to Rio, are you
b) Flying mainly west

7) The Eastern Shuttle was great. How many airlines have acquired it since its sale?
c) 3, here's why. First it went to Trump, then it went to another carrier that was licsensed out to USAir, then it went to USAir (ways). Even though it was under the US title after Trump, it wasn't actually "acquired" by USairways until later.

1. runway 25 runs west-southwest (closer to west) so: D
2. technically, the correct answer is "none of the above" as BM is the abbreviation for air sicily. however, we all realize the intended airline was British Midland, in which case B would be the answer
3. the way the question is posed, i would say K (answer D), because K cannot be (i don't think) the first of the 3 letters of an airport code. however, most us airports are techinically K-three letter code.
4. sabena (A)
5. got to go with customs/immigration facility- C
6. flying mainly south A
7. eastern shuttle is now delta's shuttle, which i think was purchased from pan am...so B?

It did not go to another carrier. It was taken over (NOT SOLD) to a consortium of banks. Then there was an agreement with USAir to manage the shuttle. Then evetually sold to US.

If u don't mind explaining why LAX-RIO is mainly flying due west? The bearing from LAX to RIO is approximately 110 degree.


25 Post contains images IMissPiedmont : LAX-RIO is not even "westerly." The obverse would be though. You're not an attorney, are you, Zrs70? I'm not either so I ask questions freely which I
