Either way, I wouldn't envy the ones responsible for naming 70 777s. International capital cities, incl. Paris? 777s are the international flagships - they should take up the scheme from the 707s. There must be at least 70 Chateaux in France. Each one is a subject of local pride and a good story ab...Jump to post
I have searched the LGA redevelopment site, but there was no information to be found there (says a lot about how poor that site is).
Can anyone share when the new Terminal B at LGA will be completed, with the central hall and both concourses opened?
As a layman and someone who may have only a partial grasp of things like this, I hope to get some explanations from people with more expertise on this forum.

So the JFK-LAX/SFO flights are then all CEOs? As you said above, the low-density ones are CEO, this is what I conclude, is that right?
The title says it all, I was wondering, which type of Airbus A321 are flying Transcontinental routes for American Airlines?

The RAF has this nicely painted A330 aircraft which - on top of being a refueling aicraft - is used by members of the Royal Family as well as by members of the government. What callsign is being used? Something "special", such as Air Force One which is used everytime the President of the U...Jump to post
Title says it all. Does THY own the gates it uses at IST? Or are all gates common use, so that THY can use any gate at the airport? Are gates clustered by alliance (Star Alliance close to THY), or not at all?
They are the dominant carrier at IST, a bit like DL at ATL, so I was wondering
No, it begins after lift-off, aside from normal small pressure, 0.125 PSID, IIRC, on taxi. The cabin descends to the normal scheduled altitude for the flight. If going from Quito to Guayaquil, it’d start right down toward sea level as it’s a short flight. If Quito to MIA, it’d descend to normal cab...Jump to post
Irrespective Oxygens masks, won’t there be a cabin pressure alert in the cockpit already during approach/landing? Crews set altitude of the landing field, and then cabin pressure adjusts to that. But if that cabin pressure is 13’000 feet, won’t that trigger an alert?Jump to post
Lufthansa used to have a flight in the 1980s I think (maybe early 1990s as well) that routed Frankfurt-San Juan-Bogota-Lima-La Paz, using 747-200s. Were the aircraft modified to deal with cabin altitude issues at such high altitude? La Paz is located at over 13'000 feet. I heard there had been aircr...Jump to post

Tempelhof airport saw more than 1.1M passengers and 53'000 aircraft movements in 1993. In subsequent years, the numbers went down dramatically, before its closure in 2008.

Is the South Terminal already operating? I have read the English and Spanish language Wiki articles, and they both say different things.

I am curious to understand more about the crew compositions on Brussels Airlines.

Despite Greta Thunberg Germany's seven top cities are connected to each other with up to 25 flights daily! To which connection are you referring to?

Why does this route exist? Like any other route in the world: 1) because there are enough people and cargo that need to go between those two places And/or 2) some administration wants the route to be served even if there isn’t enough of 1) above (see government-subsidised routes in the US or the EU)Jump to post
Swiss officially announced that they no longer will be serving Lugano. That’s the end of that domestic service. Only ZRH-GVA left.

Rough day for the flight attendant and passengers. Why do some people have to become animals when they fly. Is it drugs and alcohol? More like the abundance of unbundled fares.

Shenzhen is one of the economic hotspots of China, and increasingly so. Outside Asia, it has good connections to a number of cities in North America and Europe - but only with Chinese carriers.

I know of two European airlines that already over the past days didn‘t bring any more cargo into/out of ORD, as they felt that the loading/unloading would expose ramp workers too much.
