I have to disagree with all this negativity regarding handling agencies. I don’t know what’s going on in other countries, but I’m employed by a handling company and get paid much better than most airline staff that are left at the airport. And I don’t understand why everyone thinks we’re temporaril...Jump to post

Mahan are just about to re-introduce their 743....!!! The only pax classic left flying. Back to the original topic.... When I wanted to fly some IL86’s a few years ago,( Donavia & AtlantSoyuz), the travel agent would only sell me the flights I wanted if I bought accommodation too.... so ended up...Jump to post
Hello all, Just after a bit of info if I may.... Walking home from the local 10 mins ago,( west London), and I heard a large twin fly over head.. Turns out it was ZS-NEX, B767, On a straight in approach at 6000ft flying MIA-STN, flightnumber ARN0529, .. Aeronexus..? Anyway, my question is..... what’...Jump to post
I check R-24 daily and the aircraft has not yet returned to service. Presume final repairs are still ongoing? Maybe it got dirty sitting on the ground so long at YYR and AF is still looking to find the expert technicians who can perform the 'washing' procedure? any delays will probably be due the e...Jump to post
Then you need to go back to school mate... That’s a 13x a week operation ... Each morning sees a rtn flight ...= 7 a week Each evening sees a return flight except one day, that = 6 a week... 7+ 6 = 13 rtn flights a week. QED. Calm down mate. For example routesonline.com report routes like this: LOT...Jump to post
Yes, 12 times per week. In addition WAW-CPH-WAW will be mostly served with Embraer 195s (instead of CRJ-900s of Nordica) 7 plus 6 makes in my books 13, but that is just me. The x at the end indicates that it operates on all days with the exception of that one. So 14-2=12... but that's just me. Then...Jump to post

Flew JAL LHR-NRT-SYD in 96, and there were seats reserved at the back of the aircraft just for smokers to wander down from non-smoking seat to.

“Limited to 10 mns max use”
Morning all, Happy new year etc Blah Blah Blah... Believe QR are once again supplying BA several A320’s early this year.

An-124 bring out spare motor from U.K. Will BA send along MX team or use locals? What is the cost to charter the An-124 and send BA's MX team to JNB to fix this bird? The flight alone must be several hundred thousand dollars. If you charter the An-124 for a one-way flight, are you also charged to f...Jump to post

Aircraft transited via BDA, it was NOT non-stop. As for the 3 engine ferry on this 380, it was considered, but a fuel stop in western Africa was needed. BA did not have A380 experience or local knowledge of operating in that neck of the woods, so new motor is being shipped STN-XXX-JNB Also believe B...Jump to post
Due to higher drag from having to fly at lower altirudes with three engines, they had to land at MAN. That is not true. Go read the report. Over the UK they had sufficient fuel to go and land at LHR, but the fuel was not in the right tanks. The B744 has a complex manually controlled fuel system, an...Jump to post
Nor true. Saw the L1011's plenty of times in service at LHR. Hmmm. Thats interesting. So the L1011's did fly revenue ops for AI? Interesting you mention LHR, because on the day they were inducted, AI press release mentioned FRA and Japan routes as the target routes for the 2 L1011's - routes where ...Jump to post
Yep, PHX-YYZ-LHR was the planned routing. But now going via BDA instead. Specially Qualified captain required for 3 engine take off only. Rest of flight can be conducted by regular line crew. Engineers thoroughly checking everything on the good 3 engines, including horoscope checks. Making sure they...Jump to post

Air India leased 2 L1011's and 3 A310's from Caribjet in 1993. While the 2 of the 3 A310's did end up flying some revenue services, the L1011's never actually saw service before the deal was terminated over good old corruption allegations. http://i63.tinypic.com/29igyu.jpg Nor true.
