I been looking at Syrian Airs website and looked at the fleet pictures, im sure under the title 'Boeing 727' there is a picture of a TU-154 instead

http://www.syrian-airlines.com

sorry for no direct link but if you click 'About Us' then 'Fleet' the pictures will come up

If im not going mad id say that is a TU-154 anyday!

Definitely a TU-154. The gear and that point that sticks out from the tail gives it away.

Yup, it's a Tu-154. If the general shape isn't enough for a definitive giveaway, the triple-wheeled landing gear bogie is. There's no fooling aviation enthusiasts. Big grin

Funny how the 727 and the 747SP have the quietest cabin in the sky...

They also have a gallery with photos... next time, if I were one their staff, I would make sure, I do not post a picture of a TU154 with several SAS-logos clearly visible in the pic...  Smile

Another interesting nugget from the 747SP page on that website:

Other big differences are increased fuel capacity from 47.661 US gallons to 49.231 giving it a better performance.

Oh... my god! If that thing can fly on only 49.231 gallons of fuel why the heck is Boeing making such a fuss about the fuel efficient 7E7. All it has to do is just re-start production on the 747SP. Airlines should be frothing at their mouths to get that sucker into their fleets...  Smile  Smile  Smile  Big grin

And by the way, they claim these super efficient birds to be the "most modern" available. Does available mean Boeing lied to us about closing the 727 and the 747SP production lines or did they recently reopen them? Must be thousands of new jobs at Everett.

ok so their webmaster cant tell a 154 from a 727... big deal (lets not bring up the certain "largish" us airline that had a 747 on their front page when the only type they flew was the 737...). Syrian gets a bad rap for no reason, they are a fine airline.

Oh come now "CREW" I've seen more than one thread here about press mistakes on airline facts and many on famous movies mistakes that no CREW member has objected to so don't get your panties in a knot about an airline getting caught approving a website they sponsor as advertising their own product with outright lies as well as "mistakes"

I guess some terms are relative. In some cases relative can be regional, and in that part of the world, the Boeing 747SP, Boeing 707, and the Boeing TU154's may very well be the state of the art. Consider this: The term "Space Age" was coined in the 1950's. I still laugh when advertisers use that term.

22 right:

Foreign nations use periods instead of commas to separate numbers. If they wrote 47.000, that is the same as 47,000.

Logan, I totally agree, def a NWA DC-9, lol.

Look at their gallery and you can see that they don´t have any picture of the B-727. There are only pictures of the A320, the TU-154 and the B-747 included.
I agree, just because they made this "stupid" mistake of adding a TU-154 picture to a B-727 description, one should not condemn a whole airline.
I don´t know how they are, I haven´t ever flown with them...

like if the customer will recognize the difference, they are almost the same, they both have 3 engines at the end of the fuselage with 1 fitted in the tail ánd almost as long as the 727, both are old designs . if the picture would be big it would be a shame... think this isn't such a big shame...

M404...

what does my being on the crew have to do with anything i said? And what outright LIES? Ive been through the entire site and dont see any lies? Just because they claim "Our fleet is comprised of the most modern and comfortable aircraft available" (which they do BTW, not the entire fleet, but A320s ARE MODERN, and the 727 and 747 DO have quiet, comfortable cabins) doesn't make them liars, not even close.

After spending the last 2.5 minutes researching this aircraft here's what I have discovered:

Actually, it's an ex-Air France DC-9 that Air France was forced to sell to Northwest because of public anger over how dirty the airplane was. NW faced considerable flak over operating such a dinosaur. So they turned around and sold it to Syrian Air who now operate it as a codeshare flight with Lufthansa, who has mandated that there be absolutely no PTV's on board.

Further, the engines have been upgraded so they can beat any A340-300's during the upcoming MOSTOP (MOst Sexy Take Off Performance) competition coming up later this autumn in Homer, Alaska. Further, since Douglas is now owned by Boeing, beating the Airbus A340 at that competition has taken on a personal dimension. In other news, Emirates has declared that Homer, Alaska is their next big destination.  Smokin cool  Smokin cool

Judging from the shadows, it is the same picture, but that is not to say that the airline did not buy the picture.

According to SyrianAir, the B747SP is 90% the same as a B747-100.

This seems a bit high given the obvious differences, can any confirm the parts comonality.
