Some of these routes hop along like they did because the airlines did not have permission from both governments needed to go from A to C and sell seats on that leg of a trip, but still had permission to fly A to B and B to C from the prop days. Sometimes it was the only way to get to C. Sometimes, i...Jump to post
Some unusual pictures of Caravelle III msn 116 used by the Centre d'Essais en Vol (CEV) and undergoing in-flight evacuation test using the rear stair. This evacuation method was never used in service. There are however unconfirmed rumors those tests were not just for evacutation and Caravelles migh...Jump to post
:cry: Why did UAL only operate the Caravelle for such a short period of time? Did it burn too much fuel or were they maintenance nightmares? My dad worked at UA back in the day, and his take on the caravelle was NO room for bags and cargo. He said they were doing good to get all the checked bags on...Jump to post

Pretty stunning that no NYC airport is on that list.
Things will bounce back eventually. I know they want to stop the bleeding, but this seems like overkill for a short term issue. Were they bloated and needed to shrink before and the downturn is a convenient excuse?Jump to post
Not sure. Maybe he wanted to enjoy the ride home, instead of working. It could be that is how his trip pairing ended on that particular bid to stay under the number of hours worked limit. (Flying the trip back would have put him over the monthly limit.)Jump to post
I don’t care for them and do my best to not support them by buying from them. But I will admit, the ability to buy some Imodium before a long flight might convince me they are a necessary evil.Jump to post

Google is your friend! KHYR is the ICAO code of Sawyer County Airport, Wisconsin. But who the hell wants to Google every airport code because somebody just can't write it out?

Nothing new here. Tag-ons were a popular way to extend your reach before the fortress hub model came into being. Early airlines routes were milk runs emulating train services (A - B - C - D - F). Some would get on and some would get off at every station, only occasionally would every seat be occupied.Jump to post
If CX wants to rid itself of 777X orders and go for 787, here’s an idea: go away from Boeing and go for A330neo. It is a cheaper aircraft, a direct 1:1 replacement . Pilot pools will be unified with a A350/A330/A330N fleet. Go all Airbus CX it’s the smart thing to do. This little gem is going uncha...Jump to post
I doubt Boeing will cancel the 777X as they have already spent most of the money to develop the aircraft; and it's essentially in the testing and flight certification stage (Less than $1 Billion remaining to enter commercial service). Boeing will bring the 777X to market. Not cancel outright but pe...Jump to post
Will A380 make a miracle comeback amid the virus outbreak?

I’m not a fan of an industry-wide bailout. It punishes airlines like DL who have paid down debt to be better positioned for an event like this, by propping up competition that should have gone away. It rewards poor behavior like AA’s outsized debt for shiny planes and stock buy-backs. Rewarding a ba...Jump to post

You're suffering from a serious logical fallacy here, which is that you're inferring the cause from the effect based on nothing more than an assumption. You're assuming that the cause you propose (reduced performance of #2) is the ONLY reason the trijets were overpowered. The 727 had worse runway p...Jump to post

No one who was not on that airplane (except maybe those that interviewed them afterwards, if that happened) can know what they could have or could not have done.

We often parked three jets around a jetway without using push-back tugs. It worked as long as the middle one wasn’t the first to leave due to delays.
Look at some early terminal designs at LAX IINM there were a couple that parked DC8s and 707s parallel to the building until they needed more gates.
These climate change ideas are hilarious. Where I sit typing this, “scientists” tell us 10,000 years ago, was a Mille deep in snow and ice. How did human-caused global warming melt this snow and ice?
