I'm sorry if this has been answered already, but will Boeing's fix require separate certification of the MAX aircraft from the NGs? Thank you Yes, that is what they have been working on since the grounding. In my opinion, this severely damages the value of the 737, since single-aircraft airlines (S...Jump to post

forced its developer out of the commercial aircraft business The CSeries program didn't do this, poor management decisions through the medium term at BBD led to a severely weakened stock price and massive borrowing costs. The Cseries burned a hole in a pocket that should have been able to refill it...Jump to post
It seems to me that the A220 is not that a perfect flawless aircraft as widely advertised. Loads of tech and glitches. I hope they solve this sooner rather than later... I think it has to do with all of the new tech in the A220, it is a brand new design so it's not surprising. I'm just glad that th...Jump to post
I highly doubt Austrians would agree to that especially now when they got their conditions accepted. Seems like national pride isn't letting them. Remember the mess that erupted when that was supposed to happen in Belgium? The LH brand isn't so nation-specific however. If anything it's still quite ...Jump to post
This appears to be incredibly poor airmanship, with this kind of accident occurring I'm surprised that countries aren't banning PIA from their airspace and Pakistan isn't reviewing its training practices. The only reason I could see this happening is that the crew would have pulled a breaker to turn...Jump to post
Good news, looking forward to still having an airbus option in Canada!Jump to post
Quebecers are also sensitive to names that are unilingual for domestic carriers. Air Transat and Air Canada both work in both official languages. It was the reason that Trans-Canada Airlines changed its name to Air Canada back in the mid-60s. "WestJet" sounds too much like a foreign carri...Jump to post
It does really make me shake my head at the unacceptability of any rescue of Bombardier, especially after it was directly targeted by the U.S. government. Of course, the U.S. would never be so foolish as to let its biggest high-tech exporter go under. As a Canadian, it makes my blood boil and hope ...Jump to post
Hello forum, I noticed that Delta flight 8841 was operated on a 757, which is a lot larger equipment than we're used to coming from the states. I was wondering if there was a reason for this. I thought maybe the Bruins were playing tonight but that doesn't seem to be the case. So is this a regular o...Jump to post
If it was really terrible as you're saying, what is the FAA doing? They should have raided that facility a long time ago then. The FAA should have done a lot of things long time ago... So I guess by your logic anything produced in the South is crap. Does that go for all the Airbus planes made in Mo...Jump to post
jwjsamster You say that the FAA would have picked this up. Is that the same FAA that signed off the MAX. That's what I'm saying, the FAA isn't known now for being a trustworthy or moving quickly when it came to grounding these aircraft. They will wait until at least 2 787 to crash in similar crashe...Jump to post
You all are dismissing this as a union hit piece. Has anyone actually experienced the quality of the labor force in Charleston? It's terrible.

If by Chinese competition they mean the A320-sized C919 and the 787-sized CR929 I don't think the definition of Middle Of the Market changes at all. Them starting again seems to imply that this may be a 737 and nma (the smaller end of it) sort of airplane. That's why they are concerned about the C9...Jump to post

Pentagon believes that it was a missile.
I really don't understand the hatred some people have for the MD-80/90/717. They along with the 757 are the only jets left with any sort of character. A world full of bland 737's and A320's is extraordinarily boring. Anyone who champions that goal is not an aviation enthusiast. But aside from that,...Jump to post

Don't know if this had already been posted but it looks like Boeing is compensating Icelandair for the MAX groundings, can we expect something similar for other MAX operators?

Hopefully they will at least improve their regional product in these "new" planes...
Sorry to come back to this conversation a little late. After speaking to my friend, who is Austrian, she said that the Austrian brand is still held in quite high regard within the country and that people will not be happy to see the brand disappear. I for one would also be sad to say goodbye to Aust...Jump to post
Hi forum, My friend recently traveled back to Vienna for Christmas and ended up flying on Austrian 71/72 on a Boeing 767-300er. As any avgeek I decided to do some research onto the aircraft that they were flying on. I noticed that Austrian's 767 fleet is getting on in age ( with their oldest being 2...Jump to post

If it wasn't a mid air collision then the pitot tubes probably iced, but if they did, why the speed fluctuations? Speed didn't fluctuate like that if we take a pitot tube related incident like AF447 iirc. Isn't the FR24 speed the Ground Speed which is calculated by the aircraft's navigation system ...Jump to post
