Even when Douglas offered the JT9D version changes had to be made on the DC-10 center engine in-take.If you look carefully you can see
a slight difference from the CF6 version.
Heathrow Director frequency at LHR is a marvel to behold. Probably the busiest frequency in European airspace. During a busy period there are ZERO gaps on frequency - constant to and fro with the controller who is issuing instructions to different aircraft one after the other, some in the hold and ...Jump to post

I remember in my times at Vaughn College when DL used to regularly send 757s to LGA from ATL, DTW or MSP and UA sending them from DEN until around 2015. UA even had an early morning flight to DEN on a 753 for a short time. Those were good days. Too bad DL only uses A321s now. With the new terminal ...Jump to post
Do some searches and you will find L1011s and DC10s have served LGA through the years. Pretty good for 7000' of runway. Eastern, Delta, TWA, and American Airlines all operated wide body aircraft into LGA years ago. Eastern operated L1011s, as did DL and TW. American operated both the DC10 and the 7...Jump to post
Can't believe there gone 20 years already, now part of AA history. Flew many times with them and was lucky enough to fly every type from connie to L-1011.Jump to post
Was just browsing for any news on the JFK redevelopment and came across a presentation dated May 12, 2020 for the new terminal one. That’s a good sign that this project will continue. https://www.anewjfk.com/wp-content/uploads/NTO-MWBE-Information-Webinar-Env-Srvc-5-12-2020_postVR.pdf Anything not ...Jump to post
Looks amazing, beautiful. Looking at the photos - Can I ask though, why American carriers don’t use automated bag drops? They seem to have an odd two step process of checkin looks then head to a counter with an agent? Would be a labour saving not to mention normal in a state of the art terminal May...Jump to post
My idea: 1. When Rikers closes, extend runway 13/31 to 10,000 ft and replace the existing 4/22 with a new 8,000 ft parallel one. The runways need to be reconfigured/extended 2. Open LGA to anywhere in the lower 48 and Canada (due to pre-clearance). There should have just closed LGA in opinion. Doin...Jump to post
Any news on when LaGuardia Terminal B head house will open? Also, most of the capital projects were not being paid for by the PANYNJ. At JFK, they were contributing $1 billion compared to $17 billion of private money. I think they are using capital projects as a way to get federal money for their e...Jump to post
Wow sounds very labor intensive must take a lot of man hours, I can see this as another major expense for the airlines. Maybe it would be easier just to fly them half hour per week,but I'm no expert sure they know what's best. Thanks for your detailed answer,very informative.Jump to post

I think the A220 will be a real winner for the next couple of years.Jump to post
Yes, that one nearly killed me. I didn't even have the energy to make comments by the time I got to WN. Have you looked into a way to automate this? I had no idea you typed it manually, that must take hours. Same here. I thought he was cut-n-pasting his work from Excel. No I don't type it manually!...Jump to post
UA LGA-ORD 13 in MAY? Must be a mistake.Jump to post
I'm not sure but I would have to say no. They went from the Electra to the L-1011.Jump to post
Airline seniority systems are complicated for those not in the industry. If an entire fleet is parked, the company puts out a system-wise bid that most pilots can bid on. That reshuffles seniority on the remaining fleets and adds extra training events into the mix. I'm not in the industry and your ...Jump to post

BA B789 EWR-LHR makes missed approach: https://www.flightradar24.com/BAW188/23e945be LOT Polish Airlines B737-800 makes missed approach: https://www.flightradar24.com/LOT2HR/23e9a04a A go around is not a missed approach, a missed approach is when pilots can't see the runway, due to poor visibility. .Jump to post

Regarding enilria’s comments about PAE becoming an AS only airport, keep in mind WN wanted in. If UA don’t find a quick use for these slots, me thinks WN will want ‘em...assuming they can find the aircraft at present. WN originally had 5 slots at PAE then behind closed doors horse traded them for A...Jump to post
How advanced is the LGA rebuilding? Will one of those tarmac overpasses be completed in 2020? Yes the overpass that connects to concourse B will open when the new headhouse.is completed in July or Aug. Seems the first part of the western concourse could open then too. The outside has most of the gl...Jump to post
I don’t see any increase in hub to LGA flying loaded so far. I compared 3/23 to 3/30 (both Monday’s) and while I see CLE-LGA going away there are no other additions so far. Makes me wonder if they’ll lease the slots out. Maybe AC? AC? What could they possibly use the slots for? This is one of the r...Jump to post
Well, except for that 20-some year hiatus the last time UA left. It will be most interesting to see what AA does. At a minimum they should probably add one flight to each route. Maybe then they'll want CLE-LAX back. I don't recall UA ever leaving the route can you explain when the 20 year hiatus wa...Jump to post
