On my flight MEX - NRT it was 15 hours of darkness, but the crew elected to dimm the windows all the way, so I could not see the stars or the aurora over Alaska... it was a moonless flight.... hate the windows on the 787.... and then on the descent they put them in normal, and the landing lights rea...Jump to post
Tcas has made a lot easier to avoid such tragedies ...you can see in this video the alert at 0:49 secs the jumpscare of the first officer ...

I wish them luck, and a huge success its nice to see this kind of routes and the aircraft that can do it. Love to see photos of the interior.
As much as I loved the A310 (used to fly Pan Am MEX-JFK back in the 80´s) and Aerounion has 3 converted to freighters, there is no way to bringing it back in a economically viable way, hence Boeing has shelved the 797 and Airbus is making the A321 like tortillas. Airbus already has the A330-800 NEO ...Jump to post
If the Aircraft never went above 11 000 feet there is some missing information, either the PAX were not affected as much, or the cabin depressurized rater quickly giving the PAX a headache due low oxygen and ear and nose pain due to decompression. On the PAX that did not use the mask, that is simply...Jump to post
The firing of pilots and support crews is true has been announced and a friend of mine told me so a few hours ago. The rumor here is that they will downsize the fleet because there are simple too many grounded SSJ100 for MX problems. (engines). They told them that their are going to get rid of them ...Jump to post
Why would they focus on a new narrowbody when the 737 is sold out for 6+ years with around 5000MAX commitments/orders? Because it will take Boeing 5 to 7 years to put the new narrow body on market and in production....so they can begin replenishing the thousands of 737´s that will be retired.... he...Jump to post
I think that Boeing should focus on making a next generation single aisle aircraft in a modular fashion so it can use the 100 to 200 pax capacity and wings to accommodate such TOW and capacity. This middle of market won't happen because its a niche aircraft than even if they sell 2000 copies the inv...Jump to post

They eventually order more A350K and a midsize order of A380, Iberia could use at least 6 to 8 of those and BA could use those to Latin America and the far east. Idon't think they will order 779´s and Airbus will eventually bend its back to accommodate a big order from the consortium. I´d love BA to...Jump to post
So It seems that training is failing in major airlines, specially if they allowed the cello on the previous flight, the article sadly does not specify what kind on aircraft was used. Maybe the Cello did not fit...but bad communication and attitude is so prevalent in this days. https://www.nbcchicago...Jump to post
I agree that this accident had a lot of luck, and a lot of things conspired to make it happen, and a lot also to allow everyone to survive. Ill wait for the report, because quite frankly a lot of the experts here on crash investigation and aircraft knowledge are gone, and the ones who post useful in...Jump to post
IB could have 8 A380 and fly them to LatinAmerica and have them filled.... To me IAG should have already bought or leased as much A380 as they can...but the logistics and fear of expenditures, have made them very cautious. Now we see Hifly get a very good deal and they will surely keep those frames ...Jump to post
MEX is at 2400 meter ASL and yesterday it was 30 celsius ....I used the calculator for altitude....3466 M ASL holy cow and me in a 21K race...

When I see the MEX-CUN-MEX airways on Flight radar I want to puke, it looks like a highway, all flown with SA aircraft, and tons of cities in North America are the same for the sake of "frequency", why the government gives you incentives for using a darn electric car, but can't in the case...Jump to post
When AS used to fly to MEX, they used 738´s and the wingleted 739´s...you don't know how it feels to roll for AGES to take off at 2400 meters ASL with a full cabin, luckily the flights to LAX are 4 hour hops so I guess we were not close to MTOW, but I got used to it....rolll roll..and then up like a...Jump to post
We are in the midst of the start of a trade war, problematic relations with Russia (remember those overflight rights) and a lot of things can be unforeseen like a huge epidemic, large catastrophe and such...

The westbound leg of this "imaginary" direct flight is on the limit of a 788 can do I bet any kind of headwind would make it divert. Divert= Money pit
Nice codeshare if it happens, direct with AM metal, I don't think so.

If I PAY to fly in First or Business class, I expect better treatment than Y, after all its my money and I can feel entitled (by my money) to ask for better services, specially if those are advertised and come in the menus...

how much is Boeing selling its 787 now that production is in cruising speed ? It rumored that they can go lower than 100 million a copy and have still room for a decent profit. (decent as in less than 10 million), but all this is just approximations on economics of scale and the amazing cost cuttin...Jump to post
This new LH CS reminds me of the 90´s Mexicana "darth Vader look" pure unadulterated bull. That can spin it for all they want but I guess DHL yellow CS and LOGO is not classy...LOL
The L1011's and DC10's are being retrofitted right now for the winter flying to the South and Islands.
You could just write the city name and then nobody would have to look things up. But hey, "I'm a pro aviator logic" OK, but do you know where Puebla is without looking at the map? Without that, "Puebla" is as useless as "PBC".. Good lord, this thread has to be satire, ...Jump to post
I Grew up in Mexico City. I remember flying twice MEX-IAH in 1973-1974. Both time daytime flights, both time DC9 (30?). Both times a beautiful Lone Star tail. And that is the other thing I remember living under the San Mateo Approach (Satelite edo de Mex), seeing these Lone Star tails passing day a...Jump to post
They could do nothing and complain about the carpets and interiors and not take delivery ...
On a serious note...the 777 and the 350 orders would be the logical choices and keep the Dreamliners and 321 Neos.
For me Leahy is a great salesman, and has the Steve Jobs Syndrome, he enjoyed the good times and when things got steady he left, Apple did the same when SJ died, so after his death, apple has not created anything ground breaking...so everyobne pins the success of the company to his leadership.

My take on the subject, the A380 will soldier on... (on a comatose order book), Airbus will not respond to Boeing if IF they go 797, there was no case for a 757 NEO whatever, there is no case for a 797, they will keep printing money for a long time because of a healthy order book, the A330Neo will s...Jump to post

I hope Airbus can get its act together in the production side of the business...surely it is costing way more than quantified, because all the extras and problems that you incur due to failed date deliveries and on time production of high demand components.
