The Boeing way.... run for help. Look at the USAF 767 deal.....Jump to post
If it's real, I love it. Very clear and sharp. Different yet the same, very clear corporate identity.Jump to post
They retire old aircraft and take the new ones.Jump to post

Could anybody here confirm this, and if true, what is the reason of such a visit?

VS from Hong Kong last night arrived back in Hong Kong this morning, turning around near Ulan Bator and flying back to Hong Kong.... 9 hours flight to nowhere!!
This was a 789 and I'm wondering if engine related
SQ... always said I would never fly them and thanks for reminding me why.Jump to post
Ask CI about three engine ferry flights.... 742F, Manila.Jump to post
Seems the 359 is not the best for this flight.... offloaded pax, no luggage and no cargo!!! But they saved fuel.. What do you mean ? The A359 can easily do HKG-MIA with full pax and some cargo. Thats what I was told. The first flight from EWR had no freight, no luggage and pax offloaded to make it ...Jump to post

Flew BA Y (A380) back in August, flew upper deck and lower deck. There is NO sound!! Also the smoothest flights I've ever been on.Jump to post

Why fly a prop when you can fill a 737?Jump to post
B-LGA is leaving shortly on its delivery flight to Hong Kong. Guess this makes Hong Kong the first place in the world with 2 A350 equipped airlines :hyper: Depends on how you define "place". There are two French airlines operating A350, although only one from metropolitan France… Well the...Jump to post

There is track record of putting 747-400s into the water in Hong Kong during Typhoons (I was there when the CI 744 went into the harbour at Kai Tak), but it very easy to be an armchair pilot and second guess the crew. I would think it likely that the KLM crew was very experienced and so I wouldn't ...Jump to post
They are a much more reasonable customer when it comes to taking delivery of A350s. Geoff You mean like accepting frames and then asking Zodiac to change the cabin seats few weeks later while the aircraft is on revenue op ? Yeah, makes perfect sense... If the new seats are in Hong Kong then why not...Jump to post
So it seems disposing of the 4-engined A340's and 744's hasn't helped them much overall then. CX clearly needs to downsize a bit if the loss of southern China traffic is hurting them. They can cut LHR down to 4 a day from 5 to start with. A quick check on availability in the next few days shows goo...Jump to post

Different shareholder structures in all their businesses result in different AOCs and route permissions. Oh, and because HK airlines is so crap, different A350s will have different J cabins and IFE. Even from the start on a new fleet they are a mess. Skytrax 4star my ass. Only because this was not ...Jump to post
