Way back in the day around 1981 or 1982 I used to fly for C & M airlines based in IYK. Far different in those times with a glut of underpaid pilots and probably more defense spending, there was quite a demand between IYK and LAX as well as Edwards AFB, Palmdale, and even Barstow. San Diego and ...Jump to post
Global supertanker was here in Chile a few months ago and there is no doubt about how good it is. Initially there were concerns about operating such a big aircraft at low altitudes in the complex terrain we have here, but definitely the flight crew is fantastic and did a great job, I’m completely s...Jump to post
under the comments section of the news link , a weapons base employee or duty member mentioned how the flights did not appear thru their booking channel and caused issues for reimbursement.

Why does this surprise or upset anyone? (AWACSooner) The name of the game is to make money.... that's if your a share holder. The name of the game for the consumer is cheap airfare AND comfort which is why Delta wins. I wouldn't fly in the back of a UA widebody plane for free. your share holder what?Jump to post
Billions in profits from the ancillary fees and economy minus scam, and they still stick it to the customer...thank you shareholders.

I am not sure where KQ made its fatal mistake but clearly, the expensive fleet and network expansion has come back to haunt it the last several years with deepening losses since 2013.

RIP On 777 freighter flights, at what point do they add relief pilots? At 6-7 hours, this AUH-AMS flight was sort of mid-range and makes some sense it was only a crew of 2. Did you open the link and read the story? It says a crew of 4. I did. Could have sworn it read 2 earlier. My fault, thanks for...Jump to post

I wonder what the odds are of it having to stop for refueling. Going east, none. Going west, I think only if expecting bad weather and possible holds. The flights can take advantage of the wind when flying south-west instead of head on into the jetstreams. And the flight shouldn't require etops. Uh...Jump to post

Oscar is a great guy and a great CEO for United. It's the awful shareholders and Kirby who are ruining the airline.

With all of the negative publicity United's gotten lately, it's nice to see them receiving recognition for such a good deed by their CEO. Certainly no recognition was needed, and he did not make this public himself. Bravo Oscar! http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2017/08/30/united-ceo-oscar-munoz-vows-t...Jump to post
In Belgium you can walk into a cafe and see a 32 page beer menu. They are not craft beers, they are well established beers some of them going back 5-600 years. They are exported and enjoyed worldwide. The marketing campaign was directed at the airlines target demographic which will find beers like ...Jump to post
It is a regional thing. A stand number or gate number can be given to a pilot the phraseology is different depending on the airport you land at.

Hitting the brakes by accident on a basic taxi out. Is EZY doing this to scare people from flying their airline hoping to not have to expand so fast any more?

Are you saying the film was edited to make the crew look bad?

It's a real train wreck, honestly. Not that that's any of the pilots' fault (though some of them say some things that I'm pretty sure they'll regret later on), but the extent to which the whole thing is dramatized is ridiculous (I was expecting some playing up of stuff, but...wow).
