AA also flew DFW-BRU in the early 1990's, which didn't last too long. Sabena came back in the late 1990's to resume the route when there was a codeshare agreement between them, SR, and AA. That was canned after 9/11 and SN's grounding in 2001/2002. Sure? The late 90s had Delta, SR, SN (and, for a w...Jump to post

1970s and 80s video entertainment consisted of film projectors loaded with a cassette of one film. You typically saw a van pull up to the jetway and the guy would deliver the headsets in large mail sacks and swap out the film cassettes for the flight. On TWA, some zones had family-friendly films whi...Jump to post
The first seat map that you show appears to be a PA configuration with the extra galleys on the main deck and six lavatories aft. The second seat map has two lavatories next to the stairs+four lavatories aft which match the 1976 map. I wish I could answer your penthouse question. DL had it on the po...Jump to post
What made the 727-200 Advanced so advanced? Was it capacity increase or thrust? From Wikipedia: 727-200 Advanced The Advanced version of the 727-200 was introduced in 1970. More powerful engines, fuel capacity and MTOW (185,800 to 210,000 lb or 84.4 to 95.3 t) increased the range from 1,930 to ...Jump to post
Pre 1982, DL was not known for keeping jets for a long time. Early L-1011s traded to Boeing and DC-9s to Southern and Ozark are all examples of jets disposed of before the end of their useful lives. Also, DL was known for consistent cockpits at that time. The current hodgepodge of 757 cockpits would...Jump to post

...except that DL flew nonstop ATL-NRT with MD11s for years on end. Maybe so. But didn’t the MD-11 range increase post-delivery due to McDoDo PIP’s? Could the pre-PIP MD-11 make ATL-NRT?

The 880 entry door is a plug door in that it is larger than the opening in the fuselage.

Does anyone know why the seating differed between the M88 and the M90? The M88 had the two seats on the right while the M90 had the two seats on the left (when looking forward).

The L-1011 used a logic control box to flush the forward and aft lavatories. The box contained pump control circuits, fail sensing and timing circuits . This allowed three motors to service five lavatories. In the event of a failure, one pump was sufficient to flush all five lavatories. Normal opera...Jump to post

No offense to Hertz employees, but Hertz was a victim of mismanagement well before the COVID outbreak. They shouldn't get bailed out for bad business decisions.

What a time capsule! I was surprised to see the canisters of RainBoe rain repellant on the aft cockpit wall. They were deactivated some time in the mid -90s due to being a carcinogen.
