Here is something you don’t see everyday. “A welcome relief from the strain of working as a flight attendant during a pandemic.” This flight attendant shows off her remarkable acrobatic skills to close the overhead bins with her feet - while wearing high heels. https://youtu.be/pUqPd1cqVJE https://w...Jump to post

Seems that D-ABVR, D-ABVT and D-ABVU will be next to leave the LH fleet and make their final journeys from FRA to LDE next week. What does that leave LH with? Other than BOS-FRA, is there any other why to catch a LH 747 from the USA over the next few weeks (current EU travel restrictions notwithsta...Jump to post

Have you tried cancelling the ticket online recently? They have recently updated their website to accommodate ticket cancellations more effectively.

Flight crews are exempt from the Fair Standards Labor Act, as they are not paid hourly like a 40 hour ground employee. Flight pay starts when the doors are closed , wheels are moving and engines are turning. It's the Fair Labor Standards Act. FLSA, not FSLA ;) https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/flsaJump to post

They didn't. The decision to retire seven A320s was taken at a moment when Delta was already installing the new cabins in the A320s. They simply retired the seven oldest A320s that hadn't received the new cabins yet. N309US had already gone through the mods at that point, so it wasn't retired. The ...Jump to post
Remember DL has to replace their seats on the 717 after the FAA determined their current seats don’t meet some regulation. So if you’re going to keep them until 2030, and you have to replace the seats anyway... Why not go ahead and put IFE screens on the aircraft? I didn't hear this! Can you provid...Jump to post

Maybe consider a quick overnight to Madrid on the IB 340 flight to make sure. Although when I tried it I got equipment swapped to an A333 on the outbound and A343 (right before retirement) on the return! It is usually a 346 though. Hopefully there isn't an equipment swap! My main question is how so...Jump to post
So the A340-600 has been an elusive type on my flight log. I am flying to LHR in September. Based on the experience of those who regularly fly Virgin, how solid is the schedule from now to then?

This safety video is world class. Delta sets the standard (at least for the US3) again. What a great way to highlight the new uniforms. I like many others had my doubts about the new uniform colors but now that they are out there, I have warmed up to them very quickly. It's a huge way to differentia...Jump to post
I think this is a nice gesture on Delta's part, with a great marketing partnership with Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola makes other products than just Coke (Sprite, Seagrams Ginger Ale, etc.) and you can choose not to have a Coke if you wish.Jump to post
Long turn times only affect Boeing a/c like the 757, the A321 with its wider cabin will not suffer that indignity.

Hi everyone I happened to notice the 20th 748 that was not taken up by LH. I thought I read on here way back when as to why but I couldn’t find the topic.

Is the Mighty 757 the preferred aircraft for athletic charters? Delta operates a sub fleet of 11 757s that are especially equipped for sports charters. The 11 757s transferred from Delta’s ownership to a private leasing company, which leases the aircraft to a trust controlled by the NBA league. As ...Jump to post

Delta is one of the better airlines when it comes to not abusing the CRJ/ERJ. I thought the cut-off was 600 miles, but I'm sure someone who really knows can say for sure. I've always felt that the mission of these birds should be small markets and thin point to point markets of 500 miles or less. I...Jump to post

personally would love to see the 50 seaters go, or be retained for smaller markets only. It would be nice to see them gone on routes like OMA-MSP, CID-DTW/MSP, MSN-DTW/MSP etc. Agreed - I flew on a CRJ-200 from ORF-DTW on Sunday. This isn't a smaller market and the plane was packed to the gills. It...Jump to post
Maybe they'll buy the Lufthansa 747-8i frames and convert them. Negative. 1.
