An FAQ For The Airliners.net Civil Aviation Forum

Tue Nov 25, 2003 1:32 pm

Below are selected excerpts from the FAQ of the airliners.net Civil Aviation forum.


#6. 9/11 happened. Deal.

#8. Your trip report sucks. No I havent read it. I just know it does anyway.

#13. "Spotting" is another word for acne.

#18. Airbus is subsidized. There, we said it. Now move on with life.

#27. No, I don't stay up nights wondering what would have happened if Casino Express had ordered 747s.

#31. The local airport DOES NOT hire 16 yr olds.

#34. Give up your dream of becoming an airline pilot. You are too stupid.

#38. There is life beyond Ryanair.

#43. You enjoy your PTVs. I'll be shagging the flight attendants in the crew rest.

#48. Even if you can remember every flight you've ever flown on, chances are nobody cares.

#51. What to expect on your upcoming flight? Plane goes up, plane comes down.

#58. Wow, are you serious about that 3rd daily SEA-GTF flight? Now I can die happy.

#62. The registration of the plane operating AF 2167 on 11/6/1974 was F-UCKU

#67. If you can name every flight that flies to your local airport its too small to be significant.

#71. You think taxes on plane tickets suck? Wait till you get a job and have to pay REAL tax.

#75. No, you can't jumpseat.

#81. Wow, a 717 for Northwest. Why didn't we think of this before?

#87. Sometimes planes divert. Now clean up before the keyboard gets sticky.

#94. Thats the dumbest idea for a startup airline I have ever heard.

#100. I don't need to hear your question. The answer is NO.

You left out:

Yes, US will purchase UA and PIT will become a SuperDooper Hub.

...there are a over 10,000 airline buffs on this site but from what I can see 9,980+ tend to be much younger and their only concern is if they are going to have a PTV while flying to Grandma's house that is 1-2 hours away on the latest LCC and question why the fare can't be lower. - a.net user

When is Northwest going to get rid of those old and dirty DC-9's and DC-10's? They are flying death traps.
But hey, without those 13 year olds posting these idiotic questions, airliners would not be so interesting!  Big grin

#11: All jet engines make noise; the only time you should be worried is if they stop making noise inflight.

#37: Yes many airlines have pretty F/As; by the same token, they have ugly ones as well.

#2: Tailstrikes happen, but are rare, so don't get all worried about them!

"In the Boeing 737 with 117 Y class seats, there are 2 toilets in the back...
Then follows a picture of a 737, to let us know what a 737 looks like.

"In the Airbus 310 there are 53 windows on the RH side of the cabin...
Then follows a picture of a 310, to educate us what a 310 is...
xxx
"Why is the #2 engine nacelle painted in pink while the others are baby blue...
Then I finally get to see a picture of a 747... I appreciate that one, I did not know.

#39 "No one here gives a damn that your father is an airline pilot/millionaire CEO that flies first class from IAD to DCA for kicks/government minister from Kerplakistan. Waving them around in our faces like it suddenly means you're the defining authority on all things aviation shows that you haven't a clue."

#40 "No one here gives a damn what your frequent flyer status is. Waving it around in our faces like it's the crowning achievement of your life shows that you've led a trite and meaningless existence."

#41 "Concorde is retired. R-E-T-I-R-E-D. Look up the word in a dictionary - it'll probably be on one of the pages that you haven't earmarked for having 'dirty words' or isn't covered in your spooge. Concorde ain't coming back. Get over it."

#42 "If you're a 16-20 year old student from one country one day and then a 26-35 year old Chairman & CEO from another country the next day, chances are people are going to call shenanigans on you for being a moron.

#1 - What is the UD toilet flush electrical motor in terms of cycles per minute and debit rate litres/second...?
#2 - How much poopooh can go in the water-waste tank for that toilet...?
#3 - That "blue stuff" in the toilet, is it good tasting...?
#4 - In this picture, is it possible that LV-MLO has a leaking toilet drain mast...?

#1. Who else is a member of the mile-high club? I just joined last week! (Translation -- I have so little self-respect & I am in such need of male validation, I will admit to having had sex with a GIRL/WOMAN in an airborne public toilet).
...and for our Canadian viewers:
#2. I just had lunch with the CEO of Claptrap Airlines when he was here in Montreal....he told me his airline is THINKING about flying to YUL.....Oh boy! I predict 3-times daily 744 service from YUL to Claptrap City! Oh boy!! What do you think about this???????

- Some airlines have PTVs at all seats, some have them only in the front of the bus, some only have main screen entertainment, some have NO entertainment. Your choices:
  • Fly an airline that has your preferred entertainment setup.
  • Fly an airline that doesn't have your preferred entertainment setup.

    Usually buried within these threads there is usually something mentioned about the beat to death "cartel carriers" and everybody should be obligated to stay away from them at any cost and a certain city located in the Southern US that has the largest "diaspora" of any population outside their homeland of any country/state/planet/galaxy, thereby making the local population of said city at least 200 million!!! Due to this large gathering of miscellaneous "diaspora", the local airport should be served by every airline nonstop to everywhere.

    I'm glad the perennial favorite NW DC-9 thread was mentioned. But what about these:

    Isn't JetBlue the greatest!!!
    I just love AirTran!!!! Don't you?
    When is Southwest going to expand to additional cities and when will my hometown be included?
    Why are all the majors scared of JetBlue, AirTran, Southwest and Frontier?

    And last but not least, let me, for one, thank Garnettpalmetto for reminding everyone to GET OVER CONCORDE!!!!! It is done!! Kaput!!! Finished!!! Over!!! You are free to move on with your life!!!

    I have to add a couple to this great list this far.....



    #108: Northwest Airlines will get rid of its DC-10 fleet when it damn well feels like it, so get used to seeing them around for awhile longer! Very doubtful that they care about what a few anti-DC10/NWA fans have to say on the subject.

    #137: It's a good thing that the wings on the plane flex during turbulent flight conditions.

    If Eastern/Pan Am/National/Braniff/TWA/Hughes AirWest were around today they still wouldn't be flying planes. They went bankrupt or were bought out for a reason. It is a waste of mine time and yours to speculate on whether they would have flown the 717 or not.

    #201 I don't care how much your fare was, you don't have window-shade authority over the cabin crew.

    #213 Other passengers don't give a sh!t whether it's a 707 or a DC-8.

    #216 Knowing the difference between a 707 and a DC-8 doesn't make you cool. There's a good chance, however, that it makes you an irritating nerd.

    #219 Let's face it. The only reason you think the BA Landor livery is a classic is because you've never heard of any other branding company.

    #227 Concorde is not a girl. It is not your girlfriend. It has never been, nor ever will be, as beautiful as a real girl. When your testicles drop, you'll agree.

    We don't really want to read your Concorde trip report, quit plugging it.

    We've seen your photo of the Peter Max 777 a million times already. Quit plugging it.

    PTV does not make or break an airline

    LCC's are NOT the ruin of the airline industry as we know it.

    Southwest does not use seat assignments. Deal with it.

    #265: "Your dad" may not necessarily be an aviation expert.

    #36: Mobile phones do not always actually do but CAN INDEED interfere with aeronautic equipment on aircraft.

    #182: Airbus planes are not entirely made of plastic and most Boeings not entirely made of metal.

    #2: There is many aircraft manufacturers that build excellent planes.

    #98: It sounds strange if you use the "we" form when jumping in defense for your favourite airline even though you are not associated with it.

    #5: Economy pax are humans too.

    #121: There is no news in telling Southwest flies 737s.

    "will there be a JU-52-ER...?"
    ROFLMAO!!! You made my day Skipper! And we won't see a JU-XXNG with GE engines anytime soon...

    #1001. New Orleans should learn to live within the shadow of Atlanta, Houston, Dallas and (for heaven's sake) Memphis for at least another decade.

    #1002. The St. Louis market was probably overserved to begin with and it unlikely any new airlines will be choosing to hub there.

    #1003. Montreal will not overtake Toronto in any category unless the French language is a prerequisite and one's pci is not taken into account?

    #1004. JAL has concluded that there any many wealthy San Diegans, but not enough to warrant a dedicated nonstop service to Narita. It has nothing to do with your existing facilities. Even with Miramar we are not interested.

    I vote this gets anchored permanently at the top of the threads list. All in favor.

    "#62. The registration of the plane operating AF 2167 on 11/6/1974 was F-UCKU"
