Re: Allegiant News and Discussion Thread - 2021

While the A321 is a common type for pilots to the A319 and A320, it does have differences in components and system configuration from a maintenance stand point. It would almost be like trying to operate another type from a parts and maintenance training perspective. It would also have some limitatio...

Re: AA aircraft on fire @ORD

As above, the shattered disc could have just as easily traveled through the cabin and killed a few people. It was just good luck that the disc traveled outboard of the aircraft. Is it a function of the rotation direction? If it had been engine #1 (to the left of the fuselage) would it likely have g...

Re: Why no G4 at MSN?

G4 tried MSN and couldn't put enough people into the seats for it to be profitable with an MD80 and so they pulled out. With the switch to Airbus who knows what they might decide to try? Things that didn't work for the MD80 may work for the A319/A320. We'll all just have to wait and see. As for Wisc...

Re: Farnborough Air Show 2016 - Boeing Orders

The 787, in particular the -9, has a gracefulness and beauty to its flight. With just the slightest of rotation it floats off the runway. The 737 lacks the gracefulness in my opinion but it makes up for it with its quickness and snappiness that just screams sports car or fighter jet. Both are magnif...
