LAS - After God knows how many years, they "shoehorn" most of the passenger vehicles into the T1 arrivals/departures areas causing daily chaos, while those same airlines (Delta and AA) are much closer to T3. Meanwhile, the T3 arrivals/departures area is completely underutilized and has bee...Jump to post
I have two comments on this: 1) Is it possible that there is enough disturbed air just off the back of the wing where this door was located, that airflow can actually wrap around and travel forward? 2) Why did they keep these passengers sitting right where the open door was? Shouldn't they have been...Jump to post
This is interesting. Stratolaunch is the new owner.

Quiz question for all. Name the year and who was the first international scheduled jet carrier at PHL? Without looking it up, I have no idea. I'm going to wildly guess Lufthansa? I believe they are one of the oldest airline serving the airport. How about Swiss?! Yes, for LH in 1965, but not even cl...Jump to post
BA has flown to PHL since before they were British Airways. BOAC started LHR-PHL flights in 1970.

I couldn't agree more with both post. It's annoying that they were willing to give up PHL basically to the point of just being a spoke. If this were to happen I wonder if BA and QR would have stuck around. Unless I’m mistaken BA has served PHL for ages, dating back to the TATL partnership with pre-...Jump to post

May not even be an accident. The aircraft may have been abandoned or derelict and at some point, possibly vandalized. It could have been rammed into by a vehicle. The scenarios are endless.Jump to post

It is really a sad situation that became exacerbated by 9/11. Prior to 9/11, choices were practically endless for a local upstart, especially in the used market where CV-580s, F-27s and many other types could be acquired rather cheap. With mandatory cockpit door reinforcement required on many of the...Jump to post

Part of the problem is civil aviation is really getting boring. If you consider that 3/4 (or in some cases, 100%) of what you are going to see at and airport is the A320 and 737 family of aircraft, no wonder there are less and less airliners on the Home Page.

Last year a Volga-Dnepr -124 landed in Toronto and was immediately impounded due to sanctions Canada had against Russia. Did that plane ever fly out?

Is there regularly scheduled 777 service between ORD and LAS or was this an upgauge for the Pro Bowl? LAS has some of the most unusual equipment types scheduled vs other cities.

Sorry to repeat this question but I was hoping there is an LH expert here, I am planning a trip to Frankfurt in the Fall of 23 and want to know if LH will reinstate the 744 back to MCO Orlando. Eurowings A330 is showing on the LH website, if that is the case I have no interest.Jump to post
Interesting that they departed JFK, I have been spotting there for years and dont think I have ever seen a light single go out of there. Isnt that quite unusual? Are the fees high?Jump to post
I would say PHL was better off under US than AA with your examples.

I agree. Anything less than 7,000ft is a bit tight for a widebody. They should have landed runway 27. No need for a widebody to use 22.
