Re: Why do so many international terminals have arrivals corridors above the departures level?

Keep in mind that the departures level is typically that of the aircraft deck level, approximately 1 storey above ground. Ground level would typically be the below wing services and other ground services, mostly baggage handling, but there could be some catering and such. In order to go below this o...

Re: Boeing 777-9 first flight 24 January 2020 (weather permitting)

The winds were favoring RWY 16R, but Boeing first flight rules require a takeoff on RWY 34R. There was too much of a tailwind component. The first flight has been postponed to another day. My guess is that a departure to the north puts the aircraft over less populated areas.

Re: Role of in-airport ticketing counters?

I know in the US, Allegiant charges a fee for purchasing the ticket online. One of my co-workers saved several hundred dollars for his family of 5 to fly to Orlando-Sanford on G4 by purchasing the tickets at the airport, versus buying them on their website.
