I’m a grown man looking at a career change into aviation but I’ll stay in education and referee adolescents who act like this before I’ll get around airplane folks who do. This place is supposed to be an enlightenment but lately it’s just a pissing match. Some of the posters on this board need to wo...Jump to post
Any reason why 2 MD88s to go out to SBD this past month are listed as temp storage? 9013 & 915? Is it a mismatch of airframes versus engines that still have green time left? There were a couple of MD-90s stored that were supposed to RTS at the beginning of 2020, and with the decision to now scr...Jump to post
Could they have pulled the contract of the developer who envisioned the Westin Hotel? Can we get in the way back machine and make that happen?Jump to post
It’s a claustrophobic mess at baggage claim with the temporary walls up. Plus, I ripped a wheel off my rollaboard on a loose automatic door threshold transition the last time I went through. Just my experience...security was fast, though.Jump to post
Did CHS have a flight kitchen prior to the BA flight? No, they didn't. The kitchen was built out of the former Porsche warehouse at the end of....Porsche Blvd. It's the building to the right of the chevrons/threshhold of Rwy 3. The news said about 25 employees and 1000ish meals for the 2 flights pe...Jump to post
My money is on 808, etc because of how a certain part of the world falsely believes 8 is a lucky number. HA would be all over that one. Also, typical booking code for disturbing the peace and also the name of a synth drum. There was a song..."boom like an 808" Would be the awesome designa...Jump to post

The domestic 763s started leaving when the 321s arrived, right?
I have taken N140LL to and from LAX many times. My namesake aircraft ended up on timber at MZJ over the summer. Wondering if she has been completely cut up yet. I'd love a keychain out of the skin. Cmon, Delta...

I've stared at this piece of the wreckage for a good 10 clock minutes trying to figure out what part of the airplane it is from. Which 767 driver here can shed some light?
I live in Beaufort, and I fly CHS moreso now than SAV because the prices are competitively lower. However, parking is expensive in CHS and travel time is 75+ mins. SAV is 45 and if I time it right, I can make it in 35 minutes without traffic. They have a $5 parking lot. Granted, I fly AS nonstop CHS...Jump to post
Two of them were the last 757's built. Surely they have a value for further use... The last 757 built, LN 1050, is an ex-Shanghai aircraft now operating with Delta as ship 6823. The last two 757's built, LN 1049/1050, were both for FM and are both with DL now. MF had the 3rd/4th to last 757's built...Jump to post

Unless I lived on island, I’d use SAV. Getting on or off the island is a nightmare. I live in Beaufort and can be door to door at SAV in 37 minutes. It would take me a solid 50 to get to HHH, even though it’s closer.Jump to post
I just heard that the storm system is going to stall and linger for days. How bad would that be for the affected areas ? The continental shelf is shallow in the Carolinas so storm surge will be a major problem with a strong hurricane which has been strong for days by the time it reaches shore. Its ...Jump to post
Wondering what Gulfstream will be doing at SAV in preparation since the storm is supposed to now slide down the coast and sit there.Jump to post
Dear fellow nutters, I am flying FRA-ATL on LH444 this Sunday. Or could it be that I‘m not? That’s exactly when whatever’s left of Florence could be there. Is there a rule, when will major airports seize operations due to weather? You should be fine. ATL is far enough out of the way. CLT, on the ot...Jump to post
Too early to say. Would say no decision would be made until Wednesday at the earliest when a tighter projection cone is available. Right now projections show the cone could move far enough north that CHS would be unaffected. Of bigger concern is Spirit's facility in North Carolina at Kinston There ...Jump to post
I've had to take a back seat from photographing the 787 operations at Boeing South Carolina. They really hate photographers. Been stopped too many times. But I'd like your opinions of what Boeing might do with the aircraft that are flight worthy. Would they fly them out? What about the aircraft tha...Jump to post
ILM and to a lesser extent, MYR, are in the crosshairs as of right now. Largest major airport that may be affected by lots of rain and some wind would probably be BWI, but I don't have a map in front of me as I play armchair meteorologist today (:Jump to post
The 744, DC95, and 757 fleets are there, including the 757 that were not painted into DL livery. Someone correct me but I also think the cargo 742s are there as well. I remember seeing pics of the DC93 and DC94 flwet without engines at SFB. No idea about M80s. Where did the just retired M90 and 320s...Jump to post
Looks like one of these aircraft N649DL used to have winglets installed and doesn't anymore. I wonder what's the reason for this. 649 is a 75C, used for charter. They had a mix of winglet and non-winglet frames and all were removed for consistency according to a previous thread. Not sure of the tru...Jump to post
Deltas been bringing their 737-700 and MD-88s down there lately that services ATL for a bit. Or at least couple of months when I first found out that they did. Do you mean SAV regarding the 737-700's and MD-88's? Yes. I actually thought that HHH was another abbreviation for SAV, It was too late bef...Jump to post
AA gave up the US gates - 12 & 14 to consolidate at 4, 6, and 8?
DL had 11, 13, and 15, and took over 14. Who uses 12? SY?
B6 has 7 & 9?
UA has 3 & 5?
AC has 10
Gate 1 isn't used because security extends through it, right? How about Gate 2?
What gate is F9 getting?
DL has labels inside the bins for F and Y+ that say they are reserved for those passengers only. They have had them for at least a year. They also tell you that you will not be getting bin space in the final boarding group and offer to gate check it, but that defeats the purpose.Jump to post
DL285 from LHR diverting to CVG DL296 from NRT diverting to DTW DL75 from AMS diverting to DTW 763 Flight from DUS, 764 from FCO, and the 763 From LHR appears to be continuing to ATL.

This is not unheard of. Definitely a positioning flight. Happens with all the majors. DL has a daily 77L flight from ATL-LAX which serves as a positioning flight but at the same time accepts passengers. Though where is the ATL 77L coming from? JNB? I typically have crack-of-dawn departures out of m...Jump to post
I used to fly often from EWR to IAH on CO 762 in the mid 2000s. I loved the aircraft but remember that they didnt carry a lot of passengers. I believe the 757s had more seats. 757-300 has common pilot type rating, similar number of seats & burns a lot less fuel. Delta got 16 757-300 in the NW p...Jump to post
And those Dash-8s are weight restricted to about 23-25 pax. In the time it takes me to get to the island (45 mins) I can be in Pooler (35-40 mins) and have regional jet service on UA/AA and mainline service on DL, B6, G4, etc. Unless I lived on the island, I wouldn't see the appeal. When did AA/Pied...Jump to post
Did the DL DC-9-50s get chopped or are they still sitting out in the desert mostly intact? They are at MZJ taped up and stored. One of the -MCs was scrapped and N401EA was scrapped, according to overfly photos I saw recently. The horizontal stab of N401EA is the reception desk at DeltaOne check in ...Jump to post
