Re: BA 747 3 engine ferry PHX-LHR

No GE 744 have V-Pods because the engine fan are too big to be fitted in a pod for ferry. I don't know if any PW 744 operator ordered V-Pod feature.

RR : 86in , PW 94in , GE 106in.

Re: Lufthansa now Skytrax 5-Star

Next with Skytrax: British Airways now 5-star airline (Wouldn't even surprise me) I think the same. But BA J product in their times was very innovative for providing direct access to the aisle.

Re: Replacing 747's with 777/350/330/787

These differences from a few random airlines aren't huge: - British Airways 777-300s in 4-cabin configuration have 299 seats. The 4-cabin 747-400s have 335. There's no BA 77W in 3-class cabin configuration, so "4-cabin configuration" is redundant. BA 77W have 297 seats , and Mid J 744 hav...

Re: AeroMexico launches ICN service today

Is there a plane that could make MEX-ICN-MEX non-stop in both directions while carrying a full load of passengers? No, MEX is a hot and high airport. 789 have a bit longer range than 788, but transpacific operations beyond NRT won't be unrestricted. AM used MTY stopover in the past when 767 were us...
