This was back when airlines buy planes because other airlines bought them. Imagine how our skies would be like today if they still do this everywhere? There would be A380s all over!Jump to post
As for the dude that doesn't know CASM from CASK, I can point out that the 3 largest airlines in the world use CASM, not CASK, so he needs to expand his base of knowledge. The post noting CASK is CASM/1.61 is mocking that lack of understanding. The 3 largest airlines may use CASM, but there are ple...Jump to post
The attacks happened late night Australian time, around 10.30PM. I remember watching the West Wing when a newsflash came on in a breaksaying that a 'light plane' had hit one of the WTC towers. This was quickly followed by another newsflash with the first pictures, and I realised that it was not a C...Jump to post
9/11 was the day the world went from the optimism to the 1990s to the dark days of the 2000s. How could anyone forget it?
I dare say that all the strife we're facing in the world today can be traced back to that particular day.
This is about a civilian airliner and no matter that the US Army blows it up its still a CIVILIAN plane, so why has this Topic been moved to the Military Forum? Not a mod. But what task is set with blowing it up? Is it civil interest ( FAA, NTSB, ... ) or is it military research project? According ...Jump to post
Nothing wrong as consumer to have a discussion about things that frustrate us. It's the principle anyway.

Happened to me recently on WestJet flying YVR - LGW, paid for a seat-selection in Y, upgraded to Plus at check-in but they refused to refund my seat-selection charge.

Given the number of new 737MAXes parked around Washington, I was wondering about the logistics of the delivery once the grounding is lifted, especially for airlines with multiple MAXes already completed.

Instead of banning imports, the Indonesians can engage in counter trade and negotiate for part of the payment for the imports to be made in palm oil.

I think most airlines would only book you on a codeshare flight provided you fly at least partway on their own metal. Not true. I have flown SQ but bought the ticket through GA on a GA code.

There is no collusion on the A380.

MAS had 1 x B747-300 Combi (9M-MHK) along with the -200Bs and -400s. MHK was converted to a freighter and flew on with Dragonair when they operated a B747 freighter fleet.
