Re: Is this Forum too US centric?

Yes, it's very US centric. Was looking at the new BA destinationt thread earlier- I'd say 75% of the replies were mentioning the same 3 US cities when there are countless other route possiblities, and it ended up being the Seychelles. I would love to see more discussion about air travel in China, su...

Re: Alaska new livery update

I would say as many as 60-70% of the 738's are painted and 50-60% of the 739's. I think all of the E175's are in the new livery (including the SkyWest ones) and obviously none of the Dash 8's are painted.

That would be cool if they ran a tour bus service across the city. Like a hop-on hop-off thing they do in most touristy areas. Pretty cool idea, disregarding the fact that you will be spending more time on a plane than on the ground.

It's not as much a regional aircraft thing as it is a manufacturer thing. Bombardier only publishes performance stats up to 116 degrees farenheit, and obviously you can't fly a plane if the manufacturer doesn't give you any performance data. It's 117 in Phoenix right now.
