Re: American Airlines Confirms 767 Retirement Date

I hope that some of us on the Purple Team will get to fly some of these 767s.

Huge +1. Not to mention TAF's, Snotams, and Metar's, too.

It's 2018.

Re: Airline Pilots Bidding Down to Smaller Aircraft

Yes, it happens. At some/many airlines, the pay scale is the same, so it becomes a quality of life decision based on route structure and type of flying.

Re: Red and green lights on ocean when flying over North Pacific

I agree with the others that they are fishing boats. I've seen them from the dark cockpit flying from Japan to PANC. I forget why they use either red or white lights, but I assume it depends on what they are trying to catch.

Re: Cathay Pacific Hints At New US City

They have already hauled freight out of DFW. First time I saw an aircraft with LED wingtip strobes was when I was driving past DFW's Runway 18R and I stopped and watched.

TG I'm a bit less certain, but it was BKK-NRT-SEA-DFW on a 747 (or A310?) You are right. As a DFW Metroplex kid growing up in Indonesia, to go visit home we would fly up to BKK to catch that BKK-NRT-SEA-DFW flight back in the 80's. The equipment was an -SP according to my dad.
