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?

LH418 diversion to YUL

Noticed an unfamiliar outline on approach from work and saw that lh418 diverted to yul today.

Do we know why?

Medical emergency?

Re: 737-8200?

Even if they get rid of the “max” designation they are still stuck with “Boeing” which is after all, the source of this mess.

That seems to be a problem-plagued aircraft type.


Ah so you know that it was the aircraft the issue already and not external factors?

Re: Why did AC retire their 747-400?

Wasn't it because the 744s that they got from Canadian didn't have the same engines as the 744s in the Air Canada fleet and that the maintenance costs were too high

Any pics of the new interior? I don't have any of my own. However, this article contains some MAX interior photos. https://www.skiesmag.com/press-releases/air-canadas-new-boeing-737-max-enters-regular-service/ You can find some WB cabin pictures in the a-net database too.

Re: Air Canada and Jazz (Chorus) Extend Agreement to 2035

Oh great news for my fellow Canadians, more CRJs! With the much more comfortable and fuel efficient E-275 available, we still insist on buying these turds. Thanks for your "valuable" comment! By the way (@76 seats) the CRJ900 is more fuel efficient (and has lower CASM) than what you call ...

Hopefully they will at least improve their regional product in these "new" planes...

Re: Austrian Airlines Fleet Renewal

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...

Austrian Airlines Fleet Renewal

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...

Re: A350 Sharklets

I'm not too sure that I've noticed a difference in wingtips between different A350s, could someone perhaps show the two types for clarity?

Re: Pushing E175 to 4 hours 41 minutes block time

I recently took a flight on a E175 with Air Canada from YUL to IAH and we blocked in at 4h 45. I think it responds to a specific market similar to the 787 city to city instead of going through a hub.

Re: AN-148 with 71 people gone missing

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 ...
