For years I've been saying that LAX needs to ban personal vehicles from the Horseshoe of Misery. Only allow permitted vehicles such as shuttle buses, taxis, Uber/Lyft, rental car shuttles. Have an off site drop off/pick up lot and have buses take passengers to/from the terminals. I guess LAWA decide...Jump to post

Airlines should abandon airports with Draconian Noise Laws.. That's what the ultimate goal is, as is the case with many laws that our lawmakers create. When do you think AA will pull out of SYD?

One reason why they deplaned might have been for PR and to de-escalate. I used to fly passengers and after the whole Dr. Dao fiasco and the rash of passengers recording any type of disagreement many of us had discussions about how to deal with this. Many of us believed was the best solution is in th...Jump to post
Recently I was on a ticket from HNL-CVG with routing HNL-SFO-DEN-CVG and the DEN leg canceled. I got off in SFO, went to a hotel and took Delta to CVG later that night instead of wait for the reroute. Wonder if they consider what I did to be an issue. Why would that be an issue? The flight was canc...Jump to post

I'm sure in the mess of getting the plane back with an emergency they just forgot to stop fuel. A big screw up but easy to see how it happened.Jump to post
Given that it is a payment platform the rules and regulations that govern its use are much more stringent than those of a social media site that may or may not be classified as a platform or publisher.

Hypothetical scenario. What if the aircraft is deemed not worth the cost of fixing and is written off. What would be the procedure for PHL and LH? Doubt that would happen but even if it was, it would get a temp fix, then fly it somewhere for a permanent repair or scrapping. Delta did that with thei...Jump to post
Not sure how it happened. Maybe a little wake turbulence during the flare from a preceding airplane. That's all I can think of. Here's a page from the Flight Crew Training Manual that shows what it takes to have a cowling strike on landing. I'm guessing they had a pitch of around 4 degrees on landin...Jump to post
Hypothetically, let’s say a 747 encounters an engine failure shortly after reaching cruising altitude. However, it still has over 75 tons of fuel left, and it would be a waste of fuel to dump it to land. Would they try to fly as far as they can? Or would they dump the fuel and try to land at the ne...Jump to post
Combined with the turbulence, I could imagine the following scenario: A crew member / the jump seater returns to his seat for the landing. In turbulence, he stumbles onto the center pedestal. Instinctively, he graps the throttles and by conservation of momentum pushes them full forward. The surpris...Jump to post
One thing I think is funny that the FAA and US airlines do is to combat distractions and fatigue they ban non-company related reading material and ban controlled naps. Just ban fatigue and naps.

I'm sure it will come out soon but it seems mechanical.
If I had to place bets I would play it on runaway pitch trim with the autopilot staying engaged until it couldn't manage it anymore then just said "peace out, your problem now" then at that point the pilots could not recover in time.

This is not a W & B issue. It's a performance chart limitation. The performance charts only go up to a certain temperature. I assume you can pay more to have them go to a higher temp but why bother when it only happens once every 2-3 years? The ERJ-175 is the same issue. Limited to ISA+35C.Jump to post
I would not go to ExpressJet. Basically anyone but them. Their future is anything but certain. Anything else is a safer bet than them. If you just want to do it for fun and don't care about being on reserve the whole time there then I would consider it.Jump to post
Hopefully this will be the final act that improves Compass reliability on the west. It sucks. And Delta is aware. Have some fun and do a daily check in the afternoon and see how many Compass flights are running behind. Delta basically told Compass fix your west coast ops or else.

If a Norwegian pilot (if there was a jumpseat agreement) ever tried to ride as a jumpseater, in the cockpit or as flow-back they would promptly be told to get off the airplane. I'm not a chest-beating union guy and the whole Norwegian debacle has nothing to do with unions. Norwegian is undercutting ...Jump to post
What a mess. Airside isn't any better either. If there's a bad earthquake in the LA area, I'm rooting for it damaging each terminal beyond repair so they have to start over. Really, what is wrong with the new TBIT? Well I guess not much. Except for the constrained taxiway behind it that terminal is...Jump to post
LAWA really needs to set up an off-site drop/off pickup area. Too many people don't know they can park in the parking garages free for 15 minutes and instead circle around endlessly. Along with that, ban un-permitted vehicles from the terminal loop area. Only Uber/Lyft, Taxis, buses, shuttles, and l...Jump to post
Scope relaxation needs to disappear, especially if US carriers want to have US crews flying domestic flights within the next 20 years.

Engine failures are a semi-regular occurrence. I wouldn't be surprised if each of the Big 3 have an engine failure once or twice a week.
I "flame-out" is just a scary term for the engine is no longer sustaining flames, AKA "engine shut-down".
It's probably a non-event.
Geofencing is all you need. It would eliminate 99% of the issues with these while not infringing on the freedom to fly them.
