You left out:
Yes, US will purchase UA and PIT will become a SuperDooper Hub.
...there are a over 10,000 airline buffs on this site but from what I can see 9,980+ tend to be much younger and their only concern is if they are going to have a PTV while flying to Grandma's house that is 1-2 hours away on the latest LCC and question why the fare can't be lower. - a.net user

Jezz..... What else can I say? Wait, I know, When is Northwest going to get rid of those old and dirty DC-9's and DC-10's? They are flying death traps.
But hey, without those 13 year olds posting these idiotic questions, airliners would not be so interesting!

SR 103, you forgot to provide the answer to the Northwest DC 9 Question or there will be speculation once a week for the next 5 years. Well once we get rid of that question then we can get onto more important topics. Like What is your favourite airline livery.

What I personally love best is...
"In the Boeing 737 with 117 Y class seats, there are 2 toilets in the back...
Then follows a picture of a 737, to let us know what a 737 looks like.
"In the Airbus 310 there are 53 windows on the RH side of the cabin...
Then follows a picture of a 310, to educate us what a 310 is...
"Why is the #2 engine nacelle painted in pink while the others are baby blue...
Then I finally get to see a picture of a 747... I appreciate that one, I did not know.
"When will LH retire this JU-52... or... will there be a JU-52-ER...?
I get a headache at times... but thanks for the aeronautical education...
Happy contrails -

#39 "No one here gives a damn that your father is an airline pilot/millionaire CEO that flies first class from IAD to DCA for kicks/government minister from Kerplakistan. Waving them around in our faces like it suddenly means you're the defining authority on all things aviation shows that you haven't a clue."
#40 "No one here gives a damn what your frequent flyer status is. Waving it around in our faces like it's the crowning achievement of your life shows that you've led a trite and meaningless existence."
#41 "Concorde is retired. R-E-T-I-R-E-D. Look up the word in a dictionary - it'll probably be on one of the pages that you haven't earmarked for having 'dirty words' or isn't covered in your spooge. Concorde ain't coming back. Get over it."
#42 "If you're a 16-20 year old student from one country one day and then a 26-35 year old Chairman & CEO from another country the next day, chances are people are going to call shenanigans on you for being a moron.

Do not expect me to answer these four questions -
#1 - What is the UD toilet flush electrical motor in terms of cycles per minute and debit rate litres/second...?
#2 - How much poopooh can go in the water-waste tank for that toilet...?
#3 - That "blue stuff" in the toilet, is it good tasting...?
#4 - In this picture, is it possible that LV-MLO has a leaking toilet drain mast...?

How about the following periodic ones:
#1. Who else is a member of the mile-high club? I just joined last week! (Translation -- I have so little self-respect & I am in such need of male validation, I will admit to having had sex with a GIRL/WOMAN in an airborne public toilet).
...and for our Canadian viewers:
#2. I just had lunch with the CEO of Claptrap Airlines when he was here in Montreal....he told me his airline is THINKING about flying to YUL.....Oh boy! I predict 3-times daily 744 service from YUL to Claptrap City! Oh boy!! What do you think about this???????
Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Usually buried within these threads there is usually something mentioned about the beat to death "cartel carriers" and everybody should be obligated to stay away from them at any cost and a certain city located in the Southern US that has the largest "diaspora" of any population outside their homeland of any country/state/planet/galaxy, thereby making the local population of said city at least 200 million!!! Due to this large gathering of miscellaneous "diaspora", the local airport should be served by every airline nonstop to everywhere.
