No one, including China will be buying anymore of these dinosaurs. "Dead man Walking" that simple. All we are waiting for is the actual funeral.Jump to post

747-all has 1,536 orders.
Now what did you want to say isn't selling?
The original post is a personal opinion, of which we all have. Clearly Boeing is outselling Airbus and has for a while. But perhaps, and there is strong sentiment for this, Airbus gains were the result of the current investigation that is going on and Airbus admitting that they have paid them. Coinc...Jump to post
I think 'Jumbo Jet" has been sucking a little too much Jet-A exhaust. There isn't an airline still operating that will continue to fly money losing routes in good times let alone in the bad ones. Yes there are marginal routes out there that are kept around for various reason's, but the real 'do...Jump to post
Are you for real? Who else flies this route that it is a 'copy cat?' And as I posted earlier, UA is very aggressive in going after new routes or for that matter announcing new destinations. Where and when was the last time AA or DL announced a new international location? Seems like it has been a whi...Jump to post
Ok, we have heard from the males on this issue. Do we have any females to want to voice their opinion?Jump to post
[code][/code] I cant beleave that DL is once again ripping off the consumer and the DL BB's try and justify it. There should be a nation wide boycott of DL until they stop trying to take advantage of the people who pay their bills. Where is consumer protection and a Congressional hearing? They have ...Jump to post
Without rules of society, we will have anarchy. Civilized nations follow rules for the good of the country. You are advocating something different and the results because you do not like a particular law, will be dramatic on the populace as a whole.Jump to post
All of those pilots should be fired immediately. They have to remember, they are paid to fly from point A to B. Politics and matters of Governmental action is NOT their experience and they have no right to intercede in extradition or expulsion matters. The Courts are where that is handled and just b...Jump to post
This form of 'capital financing' only works in 'up' market and you need great timing or sources with deep pockets. If not, those expensive bridge loans come due and you caught out on a limb that has been cut off. Sounds like the finance guys are taking lessons from Gordon GekkoJump to post
Ha, saying at airport is: "Should something happen, run to the TSA, those gang-bangers are better armed than any cops."Jump to post
B-29 Numbrr 1, they would mot have survived in their prebious form, only carriers with strong domestic feed survived. Number 2, if they had, just take a look at UA because ex-CEO Stephen Wolf took all of theur assests and assumed then into UA. The only one they did not get was the FRA hub and the P...Jump to post
Looking at some of the sponsor logo's, Stater Bros is a SB grocery chain, and the SBFEST is the annual SB airport airshow if I am not mistaken. Looks like it was a prop for the last show.Jump to post
How old are these birds? Airlines are parking these antiques at record rates and DL is doing cabin improvements to fly them longer? Oh, wait I forgot this is DL, king of 30-40 year old planes. I read the Air Force is doing improvements to keep the B-52's flying into 2030; 75 year old plane. Perhaps ...Jump to post
Wow, they didn't waste any time on that position.Jump to post
Whoa, so much hate against Ryanair on this board. In capitalistic society people have a choice, either purchase a ticket and fly them or don't purchase and NOT fly them. Very simple. But, reality is people want it both ways and that's not going to happen.Jump to post
I read some other newsline articles on it. The 1.5x isnt good enough, union looking for moreJump to post
Pretty cool, glad for the 'home-town' airline and the school. Hope it brings more individuals into the world of aviation.Jump to post

Good one! Had me stumped for a bit too. Glad someone asked before I did,

I saw a wingman get run over by a fuel truck in mid-morning, 75 degree weather, clear, no obstruction. All it takes is one person texting, listening to music, or just not paying attention for a life to be lost.

Looks like a Brillo steel wool scrub pad to me. Dump it and get something new and more to date.Jump to post
Looks like they are running out of options on these planes. New ones can't be sold, used ones no one will take them, so try and make them into charter fleet rather than cutting them up. Problem is they are way to big for consistent charter ops and will just be sitting around. Looks like the date wit...Jump to post
this whole story is just plain, stupid. Jews & gays would not want to go to an arab country, unless they have a death wish. Jews & gays are certainly not welcome in any arab country & arabs re not welcome in Israel. Any airline can refuse any passenger, anywhere, without a reason. While...Jump to post
There are only 5 planes in their entire fleet; 4 if you take out the 1 WB that goes on shopping spree's. Someone wants to do a LCC there? In my view, it would only work if it was in conjunction with surrounding countries. Either that or go in empty and leave full.Jump to post
Knowing a little about forecasting, it is very difficult to predict what will happen to the economy and how it relates to your product 6 months or 1 year out. Forget the 5-7 year window; its all a guess based on past predictions and what they feel the future will hold. I would not be very surprised ...Jump to post
This is going to be the final nail in the coffin for new build A380s. Why should an airline buy new airframes when they can purchase gently used examples with another 15+ years of life for a relative song? Both SQ and EK are going to be a steady supply of them for the forseeable future. By that arg...Jump to post
This is a great accomplishment to both parties for putting it together. I have been involved in doing negotiations and there are many things that go into it from different departments.

Can't wait to see what company will order. I know Delta have their hands full on the 737-900ER, A321-200, and the future CS100 aircraft. But I know they are gonna have to replace quite a few 737-800s, and A319/A320 since they are getting up to their age. There were talks about them considering orde...Jump to post
For those of us old enough to have lived during the regulated times: Very few destination options. Even fewer carriers to chose from. Fewer Government regulated fares. The train was the main competitor or the bus with the dog on the side. Nope, none of us want to go back to that period.Jump to post
Lets see, MSP and DTW are what 500 miles apart? Why would you need 2 hubs so close to one another with the monster ORD hub 200 miles away.
