You can compare MLA vs. LHR flights here: https://www.flightconnections.com/flights-from-malta-mla https://www.flightconnections.com...

Re: PSA 182 40th Anniversary 9/25/2018

My father was a pilot for PSA, lost many friends on that flight, and was involved in the crash investigation.

Re: What’s next for Silver Airways?

Unmentioned here is how slow the ATR-42-600 is, cruising at about 345 mph, much slower than a Q400 at 415 mph or most jets of around 500 mph. Segments such as MSY-CHS clocking in a 613 statute miles seem implausible because of 2 1/2 hour segment times which yields very poor utilization of the aircra...

The Downfall Of The Trump Shuttle

Interesting to read about Donald's Trump brief and humbling (well maybe not for him) experience running an airline. Did he ever look at buying a replacement aircraft for the aging 727-200's? I had forgotten about his bid for <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym>. How did Crandall out...
