The Thread For Questions Asked Every 2 Weeks (lol)

Sat Apr 20, 2013 9:50 pm

I'll get it started...

Why did Boeing retire the 757?

Why did Boeing retire the 717?

Is the 787 program in jeopardy?

Thread will be deleted in 3....2...1...
It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

Why isn't the 748 getting more sales?

A newer one - why Sharklets and not blended winglets?

Why wasn't the 764 a success?

Who's still flying 747 Classics/727s/DC10s/L1011s?

What do airlines do when someone dies onboard?

Why didn't [airline] ever fly [specific type]?
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

Quoting rcair1 (Reply 16):

Regardless of one's political views on outsourcing (and I certainly have mine), the answer is very clear.

A 777 has NEVER had a fatal accident in 19 years. The 767 has only had one due to faulot of the airplane (not counting 9/11 or ET or the CFIT, etc) and that issue was very quickly fixed (the Lauda thrust reverser). Likewise, there has never been a fatal 757 accident due to fault of the airplane (they were pilot errors, maintenance errors and 9/11).

Does that answer the question as to how safe Boeing airplanes are?

Why didn't AA keep the 717?

AA/US merger: any update

AA MD-80 replacement

AA future fleet and hubs

BA 744 replacement

Irish aviation

737MAX vs A320NEO

757 replacement

During the whole of 2012 it was: AA new livery on the horizon? AA Ch 11

During the 2000s it was all the time: Northwest DC-9s

Late 90s when a.net was started it was: We'll miss the 727s when they'll be gone

When are F9 and B6 going to merge?

Virgin America will be out of business anytime now.

UA sucks.

AA Sucks.

WN is rumored to be ETOPS certified soon and flying to Hawaii.

AS and DL merger date?

A380 to Hawaii?

DEN is a bloodbath and F9, UA, or WN will have to downsize and make it a focus city or leave it all together by the fall.

A318/319/320 are worth more as parts than to resell them on the used market.

Same with 73's.

The most beautiful aircraft ever created is the 747.

Richard Branson is an idiot.

Ryanair will start charging for toilet use.

Now it is - when is AA changing the tail graphics/What will the AA/US livery look like?

Quoting KBJCpilot (Reply 23):
DEN is a bloodbath

WN - out to kill F9 or is that just a byproduct of targeting UA?

When is xxx getting PTV?

Rumour: BA and IB to split.

Will the A350 fly at Le Bourget?

QF/EK ...

Why are such young aircraft being scrapped?

XX new livery/uniform/lounge. (Always followed by 200+ posts about how crap the new look is).

Which airline still operates the DC-10?

What's with this weird routing on FR24?

Why was flight XX000 a 777 instead of a 767 on FR24?

Why was flight XX000 canceled (FR24)?

Why no 773 / A380 / 764 Freighter?

Here are more that I remember:

A380 vs 747-8i

Will more airlines order the 747-8i?

Why did Boeing shut down the 757 production line?

United and the A350

What will Delta replace ex-NW 744s with?

LHR A380 heaven?

Will AA fly MIA-JNB?

787 grounded

UA sucks.

AA Sucks.

Please remember to state your answer in the form of a question:

Why does UA suck so much?
Why does AA suck so much?
Why does US suck so much?

 

and how about:

Why are AF planes so dirty?

Why is the MAX going to use such a small fan when everyone knows that bigger is better?
Why doesn't Boeing just throw in the towel on the 737 since it's so old / outdated / small / narrow / low to the ground?
Why is the A320 wing so crappy that it took 20 years to figure out how to put winglets on it?
Why doesn't Airbus just throw in the towel on the A32x since it's so cheaply made / heavy / only good for a few cycles?
