Here we go with the subsidy <acronym title="British International Helicopters">BS</acronym> again! Hey Art nice job comparing a multi-billion euro company with your own "small" finances!....I'm a very important person too, why won't they give me an Airforce One too? <img src="/discussions/grap...Jump to post
Yeah go to the BBD website, I posted a topic on this before as well and there were some pics...really good looking bird.Jump to post
Can't wait to see if the gamble will pay off for BBD. The CSeries is in direct competition to A and B's 318/19 and 736/737, so we shall see. I trust BBD has done their homework.
I gotta say, <acronym title="JetBlue Airways (USA)">B6</acronym> and <acronym title="Southwest Airlines (USA)">WN</acronym> are definitely the future of domestic aviation. I am so impress at how they continue to prove the success in their formula. Bottoms up for Neeleman. <img border=0 src="/d...Jump to post
As much I like the 900, I think part of the problem is that is underpowered, and range would be a byproduct of it at 1798nm. Also the biggest issue as mentioned above is the pilot contract clauses at the majors. At XJT you can't even exceed 59 seats at this time. So, you get the picture. Great littl...Jump to post
They have made some improvements, and I'm a bit biased because I have friends that work there and I like the variety of equipment they fly; but I don't know if I would go as far as naming them Regional Airline Of the Year. From what my buddies tell me, they still need quite a bit of improvement in t...Jump to post
"Like my Grandma says, Sh*t or get off the pot!!!!" I gotta meet your grandmother, I like that <img src="/discussions/graphics/biggthumpup.gif" ALT="Big thumbs up"> Anyways, they will pull out. They won't come out smelling like roses, but when it's all said and done, they'll be a better airlin...Jump to post
Slow down fellows, last time I read something on this topic, I read that in the States, you cannot declare someone dead on board, unless there is a physician on the flight. Most airlines have a corporate policy (again in the states, don't know about the rest of the world!) that you have to wait 'til...Jump to post
"Commonality is overrated" Really? I guess Bethune, Neeleman, and Herb were all wrong! "There clearly isn't room for two VLA. The A380 doesn't compete with the 747-400" May I suggest you visit <www.boeing.com> and look at the backlog for the 747, since you insist in comparing apples to oranges. The ...Jump to post
"Emirates is looking for ways to drive seat-mile costs way way down bringing in migrant workers from Southeast Asia and the Indian Subcontinent to the Gulf region. Its a huge business, one that the 773A has done very well for them on and I expect the 744D would have as well. The potential of this ma...Jump to post
Happy birthday! It should be easy to remember for a lot of people based on the History associated with today, MLK day in the States and of course the most important moment in aviation history so far in the 21st century.Jump to post
Ya'll know that the 747 captain from <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym> got his wings back and his job back. Granted he pay his dues and I understand that he heads the anti alcohol/drug abuse program. He also had to write a huge petition to the judge for a pardon. But this is not...Jump to post
I don't normally support a violent course of action, but I so agree with you. This people have no perception of the horrible realities that an accident would cause. Like Aerofan said, all you would hear is "I'm sorry"[email protected]$$holes.
I was thinking that maybe all of us in the aviation industry should check the streets near the approach areas on our way to work, and definitely open a can of you know what if we see something. Our industry is very frail right now in the States, we don't need this @$$holes doing this. <img src...Jump to post
Here is a link to a current thread in the forum that addresses the performance of the A380: <a href="http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1903520/" target=_blank>http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1903520/</a> Hope it helps.

Jacobin777 This is definitely an "A vs B" starter. The statement as mentioned above is very irrelevant, as they're comparing apples to oranges. The only thing this thread is going to do is bring out the diehards. Wait until the B cheerleaders get a hold of this...ya'll know who I'm talking about!!!!Jump to post
"...all you managed to bandy was simple increase in scale." Wrong...the 777 was a revolution in thrust to weight ratio (engines), not in wing design. Obviously you're unaware that the wing for the A380 is a completely different design, tailored to maximize the lift factor on the heaviest passenger a...Jump to post
"in what way?" <acronym title="CSA Czech Airlines">OK</acronym> Concorde here it is plain and simple. Despite the fact that I think you're smart enough to realize it, I'll indulge your comment: Lift, Weight, Thrust, and Drag. The four active forces on any aircraft in flight. Weight counters Lift, Dr...Jump to post
"I wouldn't call the A380 revolutionary, it's evolutionary. Bigger, that's all." It's aerodynamic revolutionary, leaps and bounds from the existing VLA's. If you can't see that, I'd suggest talking to an engineer, or perhaps taking a class in the subject. Cheers <acronym title="Corpus Christi - Inte...Jump to post
unfortunately some people can only see things in the A or B dimension. It's a foolish train of thought in which people want a product to fail just because their manufacturer of choice did not make that particular aircraft.
Two words for you OVER CAPACITY!!!! As much as I do not want folks loosing their jobs, if "one" the majors goes under, is going to help "others" that are struggling tremendously. Particularly in the international markets, where most majors are diverting all their efforts to. I think we can safely sa...Jump to post
I can only imagine that an objective engineer will be impress by the leap forward in engineering and aerodynamics that the A380 makes. Again, I think industry professionals know how to see things objectively as opposed to just in the A or B dimension.Jump to post
