RE: JAL From Brazil To EWR

I just have heard about it, Centrair, not flown on it, but it's got to be a 747; that is the only aircraft that JAL has that can handle such a long range. Sorry. But, assuming we are correct about the JAL joint, then somewhere around 430 people if full.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/smilies/...

RE: ATA L-1011?

Why, JBo, it doesn't even say that they have L1011-500's on the ATA website, so I doubt that they even will; they probably will be replaced by 787s in the next two or three years... Figures. Is it true that ATA is an international airline?

RE: Is The 757 Being Reborn Or Just Being Used Better?

Ckfred-
Wouldn't it be rather impossible for a 767 to not be able to fit into a gate because of, oh, let's say, two, three feet? I see your point, but how would a six-foot difference matter?

RE: CO Gives Select Pax The Jetblue Screw?

I would imagine-Continental is probably growing too much and needs more space. Also, maybe they took the Song gates, which most likely would have been in the same place as JetBlue; for they get the same servicing for serving all of the exact same routes...

one way to cope with the problem-co does it nonstop from ewr on the triple 7-200ER to delhi and it is still 14hrs. if you like continental, this is a good bet. however, i was reading on expedia, that most aa aircraft have individual power plugs to use a laptop, charge an iPod, etc.
