Why can you never fly? If it's too personal, you do not need to answer.

people are odd, fascinating, and oddly fascinating.

Great summary Tupolev 154B2! Here's some more:

The Big Six USA carriers lose lots of money in first and second quarters. This is due to business travelers flying much less due to weak economy. Meanwhile, Southwest, JetBlue, and AirTran continue to make buckets of money. They do not need to charge business travelers $500-$2000 on domestic routes to feed bloated cost structures, so they aren't affected by economic downturn.

Airbus officially launches the A380, a 550-seat double decker, and gets about 100 orders. Boeing cancels the 747-500 and -600 after getting no orders.

Boeing announces a radical new design called the Sonic Cruiser, a delta-winged a/c about the size of a 767. It is supposed to go Mach .98 instead of the regular airliner cruising speed of Mach .80--.85. This is expected to shave an hour off transatlantic flights and three off transpacific. But it could burn much more fuel per passenger, which would ruin its economics.

JetBlue announces a hub at Long Beach, CA, and announces service to New Orleans, Washington Dulles, and beefs up service to Fort Lauderdale.

Thanks guys.

Im glad and sad that the US-UAL merger went under,i think it would of been horable for UAL to be that big but no whats going to happen to US, i hear now there in trouble. Id hate to see US go under. We still need them here in the east.

Thats great the 717 got more orders,i think its a great bird and i think in the end boeing will make a ton of money with it.

That doesnt surprise me that the new 747s were canceled. I dont think there wing idea will ever fly but hey thats just my opinion.

I couldnt fly because of and eye injury,and my nervous system was basicly overlaoding and shutting down on me but im getting alot better now and now i might have a chance again
