Actually, Hawaiian is phasing out the last 3 763ERs this year. They are owned by Boeing Capital and they are going to join United's 767 fleet. Actually, Hawaiian bought those airplanes off lease. Hawaiian will still have four left after the three go to UA. Hawaiian is phasing out six 767s this year...Jump to post
According to Planespotters.net the sole original Boeing 767-300 in Hawaiian Airlines’ fleet had its last flight on January 31 from SJC-HNL. The following day it was ferried HNL-MZJ where it has been stored. How was it like to fly on these planes? Were they as updated as the 763ERs or A332/A333s? Ho...Jump to post
Solid demand, increase the price.....
Man, they *really* don't like their E190s. I believe a major reason that Boeing snuck in at the last second with a MAX deal and beat out Airbus was because they agreed to purchase some of the E190s (and ended up selling them to UA, I think) as part of the deal. They tried to sell them. UA or DL. Un...Jump to post
Edit to add: And what's the difference between "alternate" EAS and just plain EAS? Does it have something to do with allowing the flights to be a scheduled charter service instead of a regular scheduled airline? For AEAS, a grant is provided to the community/airport operator which in turn...Jump to post
If you’re referring to the 175sc it’s the number of seats. Due to scope clauses Delta can’t add more 76-seat aircraft so they got Embraer to basically make a new type on paper that seats 70 passengers but can be retrofitted to seat 76 if scope is further relaxed. It’s the same airplane in all other...Jump to post
I was putting gas in my car this morning near the 202 and noticed the unmistakable profile of a large cargo airplane on approach to KIWA. Looks like the AN124 is here for a visit. I don't see a flight plan for a departure on Flightaware so he's probably going to overnight as he usually does. Probab...Jump to post
2. U.S. passengers expect better. Remote stands are OK in Kona or Burbank where the weather is often good but I don't want them in Boston, Miami, or Dallas. Let's not confuse a "remote stand" for a "gate without a jet bridge" (such as KOA, BUR or PIE). A remote stand is where an...Jump to post

The different carriers have different policies. One might add a letter to the call-sign (so AA1604 might become "American 1604C") and another might add a certain number (so AA1604 might become AA6604 (1604+5000)). Other airlines might change the number entirely (so AA1604 becomes AA8129)....Jump to post
Remember, the original DL 767s were CF6. When the first -ERs were delivered, they (along with a handful of non -ERs) were PW4000 (around 1990). The last group of 767s were delivered with CF6 engines. There are also some ex-Gulf Air airplanes that are CF6. Of the 57 -300ERs, 27 are CF6, 30 are PW4060.Jump to post
Here's a quick blog entry I found concerning these flights. Vision used 737-300s/400s prior to the 767s.

N379CX, the first Northern Air Cargo 767-300, flew from ILN to MIA on Monday, and today had its first revenue flight, from MIA to SJU. Was 372AA prior to conversion. It is traveling under NAC flight numbers, but it isn't clear to me who is actually operating it at the moment (e.g. ATI?). NAC now ha...Jump to post
A flight engineer doesn't need a pilot certificate. He/she needs a flight engineer certificate with appropriate class.

An airline introduces a (sort of) new airplane type to its fleet in relatively short order. Obviously DL didn’t have hundreds of 717 type rated pilots sitting around. Did they come from other models or newly hired or what? A point of fact - DC-9 type rating covers DC-9, MD-80, MD-90, 717. Really? S...Jump to post
I suppose the 727 needs a flight engineer in addition to the pilots. What qualifications does the 727 flight engineer need? A special qualification/license as a flight engineer? Or a commercial pilot with a "type rating as a flight engineer"? A flight engineer doesn't need a pilot certifi...Jump to post

Great news for BDL and AC.... BDL-YUL is down to 2 daily but up-gauged to Dash 8's instead and no more Beech 1900's at BDL. YYZ went to 4x daily all Dash 8 and no more 1900's.

Generally you would use a headset, unless you were in a control tower or TRACON with only one position open. It can get confusing and distracting with radio calls coming from multiple speakers. In some of the older towers, the radios were separate from the telephone system; if you were to use a hand...Jump to post
I stumbled across an article the other day about regional carriers and how they interact with their major counterparts with regards to costs, crews, marketing, etc...

IIRC, in the 80s, DL used to have an HNL/OGG tag on a CONUS flight. Not just in the 80s. In maybe 1999 I did LAX-OGG-HNL on a Delta L-1011. Stayed on the plane for the short stay in Maui and even got an invite to visit the cockpit. I think there might have been a flight that did LAX-HNL-OGG as well...Jump to post

Hello, is there any way or wesite to look up which equipement codes airlines use for a specific aircraft? So basically the codes mentioned on the ATC FPL?

7 of the 21 E140s currently in service with Envoy are out of LGA. The remainder are out of DFW. Not sure if any will go to MIA or ORD, but I’m hearing some will go to CLT.

Fortunately if there is a hot mic, we can override the transmission, so even if the hot mic persists, we can put out a transmission to switch aircraft onto a different frequency.

Some have already been built and delivered to NAC (white tail).
Aviation Week reported in September that this was the way that Silver was going to acquire its ATRs. I don't know why it took so long for the deal to go forward.

It was a Cessna T182, I saw the video of it being towed off the runway. It did not flip over, else the runway wouldn't have opened so quickly.

We couldn't call overtime, so there were some sectors combined, and some delays.
On another note, the FAA registration branch will be closed. No FAA regulatory approvals, so if you need that ETOPS certification for your Airbus, it will have to wait.
To clarify, if the C172 suffered jet blast from the A319, that wouldn't be the same thing as wake turbulence. Jet blast occurs between two aircraft on the ground and is a result of air propelled through the engine (ergo, being blasted by a jet). Jet blast can happen with people, vehicles, aircraft,...Jump to post
