How sensible is it to rebrand a cabin class? I know some airlines already offer Business Class not named such. The US carriers and VS maybe get away with it because they have a high number of O/D pax who are familiar with things now. Then again, Canada is a bit restrictive on foreign carrier access...Jump to post
They shouldn't have gotten rid of their A340s.Jump to post
Rebooting or powering-down or darkening the aircraft or ctrl-alt-delete is a time honored way to "fix" or reset a balky computer, system and/or aircraft...in the case or more modern aircraft. It's analogous to rebooting your phone or computer when it glitches. Thank you for that explanati...Jump to post

The airline's name is Silver, but the airplane is pink. It's like a flying Magritte painting!

How about a re-engined L-1011 with 5 RR Tay engines? We can call it the Lockheed 5-star. Or how about a 737 with just one GE90 for an engine, mounted in the tail? Or maybe we can bring back the 747SP with 3 GEnx engines? Or how about an A380 with 7 CFM LEAP engines, two of them in the tail and one ...Jump to post
The Carpenters singing and instrument playing duo of the sixties and seventies had used Learjet aircraft around the time their hit song On the top of the World was released and am curious if they actually owned these aircraft or leased them ? Who flew the aircraft for them ? I cannot find much at a...Jump to post
I've seen the cockpit of a Caravelle once, nothing can be more outdated than that. It's all analogue steam-powered instruments and navigation on the needles. Never heard of an aircraft with steam-powered gauges. What instruments used steam, where was the steam sourced from and how was it used? :) T...Jump to post

I would hope that what you wrote forces both groups to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. If you’re booked on AF and the strike happens, you’d get rebooked on DL or another airline right?? As for DY, if they cancel, do they have agreements in place to rebook on other carriers or would it be t...Jump to post
...And it feels somehow extremely artificial. It is much more fun to talk to a 55year-old-LH-flight attendant who is able to recommend some nice wine. And if you fly Iberia she will even look bad at you and be rude while you get updates about random gossip between them during the service. So true! ...Jump to post

Even with the mountains of money Kraft and Co. have, the cost/value equation doesn't equal out in my mind for two planes, heck even one of this size second hand seems slightly off, but at least one is logical to me.

"Wanna get away" has been part of the Southwest marketing suite for many many years. It's also the name of one of their fare classes.

I understood this site was all about excellent results, not valiant efforts. In my opinion there is room for both. And in this case, I'm of the opinion that the degree of difficulty combined with the result outweigh the fact that the aircraft is distant and perhaps not 100% quality. All I know is i...Jump to post
It's interesting how the press swooned over a certain pretty boy QFLink captain who took inflight selfies and the like and put them out there for the world to see but when an overweight baldy guy does it at an LCC the risks are certainly too high and a disaster was only narrowly avoided. Yet anothe...Jump to post

Not the place you want to have anything go wrong... be it mechanical, pilot or passenger. One would hope that these routes are reserved for the most experienced of crew.

Drama Queens. These people should fly on JJ's A321 from AEP-GRU to see what feels like to be cramped. Can't imagine how tight is FrenchBee's A350, with 411 seats or JAL's 773 with 520 seats. They're complaining for nothing. However, I didn't understan why pilots are complaning for. Are they oversiz...Jump to post
