Flight Hrs Vs Maint Hrs

In a recently acquired a Northwest Airlines timetable from 1939, they attempt to ease nervous travelers. They do this by explaining that for every flight hour there are 70 hours in maintenance. I don't know if this is true, but what would that ratio be on current jet aircraft. Thanks Chris

I think that the overall lack of radical design changes means that aerodynamics are becoming more refined. All new airplanes basically look like there predecessors. I don't think that this is going to change.

RE: 737 With And Without Winglets .. Pilots Notice?

They are not always a cost savings either. Airtran could not find a way to justify the cost of getting them on their new aircraft. I think that you have to fly the right distance and altitude to see benefit. So there must be some negative aerodynamic issues.
