AMM744, was one thread where you made a complete fool of yourself about narrowbodies across the pond not enough for you? Are you a glutton for punishment?
Again, there is absolutely no scientific data, or any other data, that says the twin-engines and/or narrow-body aircraft are unsafe in making these flights. If they're capable of making BOS
, over 6 hours, they're capable of CLE
at 7:30 or EWR
at 6:30. No difference, really.
As has been pointed out, if it weren't for long-range, narrow-body aircraft, cities like GLA
on the European side, and CLE
on the American side, couldn't support nonstop service in the current climate, or in most climates. It's the perfect aircraft for such routes, and it would be stupid to take them off those routes unless they can show they can support year-round, or, in some cases, even seasonal, wide-body service.
