Is this the longest scheduled 757 flight? According to wiki, the longest was RDU-CDG on Delta at 3522 nm. If we're counting routes that are no longer in service, Delta operated ATL-BSB with a 757, which is 3,623 nm Great Circle distance. Not sure when it ended, but here's an article from when the r...Jump to post
It would be cool to see! Since BA announced LHR-CHS, anything is possible, I suppose. I feel like as far as international service goes, AC on GSP-YYZ or maybe YUL is more likely to happen first. A flight to MUC or FRA would require something to be done about the customs facilities. IIRC, they are lo...Jump to post
I assume they would stay on board the original plane until a second plane comes to "rescue" them.Jump to post
See your point, but the 787 is a vastly different machine to the 747. And that doesn’t seem to stop airlines using the 787 as a replacement (Qantas, BA etc) Qantas is about the only airline who publicly said they're replacing 747 with 787. BA IIRC said so for A35K but I believe not for 789. Michael...Jump to post
Looks like Clemson brought the whole Upstate to the National Championship game. Lots of traffic into GSP from the Bay Area today: Delta 8914 (757-200) & 8902 (767-300), which I am pretty sure are the team charters. Delta 8814 (737-900ER) SJC-GSP Southwest 7217 & 8218 (737-700) OAK-GSP Allegi...Jump to post
It's crazy but South Carolina, and Charleston in particular, is a hot bed for European manufacturing operations - BMW, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz Vans, Michellen. True, but BMW and Michelin are in the Upstate, near GSP. Much closer to the nonstop flights at CLT than CHS. There is also a Michelin manufact...Jump to post
Interestingly this week marks the opening of the World Equestrian Games for 2018, located in Tryon, NC. Most horses have already arrived via intl. charters. But some may still be enroute (particularly domestic animals). Any major rain fall will surely impact the games. And sadly this atmospheric se...Jump to post

Culturally difference aside, I just don't see how this product can be appealing. A 'bed' about 140 cm long and 67 cm wide with 2 adults (with or without a child) means almost no adults can sleep comfortably in any way. You have to curl all the way up and you can hardly move.

Just got back to live tracking and doing about the same speed as all other aircraft on a similar fly path.. ;) Indeed, and EI137 did not overtake it.

Could it possibly be a viable stopover point between Europe and Australia/NZ?
The Great Circle distance of LHR-HNL-AKL is 300 miles shorter than LHR-LAX-AKL. Although I'm sure the stopover point being LAX helps the passenger numbers for NZ on that route.
Can't say it's surprising news, since almost everyone has a wifi enabled device these days. The need for faster wifi may decrease as Netflix adds more titles to be viewable offline. The only thing I will miss about IFE is the ability to view airspeed, a map of your location, your altitude, etc. for ...Jump to post
Delta Learned and now has a dedicated charter fleet of A319/20 now going to B757 for Charters. Using a line aircraft with short ground time for a revenue flight after the charter, requires a lot of logistics to get the airplane clean and stocked.

With all other things equal (style of the interior, cabin service), there's no difference between an A380 and any other aircraft from a passenger's perspective.

There are no flights between DXB and AUH. They are around 1h30 to drive - not even 90 miles apart from city center to city center.

Yes, CO went IAH-SEA-ANC. I believe to link two oil related destinations. Of course this was the case. At one time I think it was just Alaska with their many flights and CO with their single flight. As recently as 2004, CO flew both IAH-SEA-ANC on a 757 and EWR-SEA-ANC on a 738. In November 04', I ...Jump to post

I checked out some of the posts on here from 1998. Man, A-Net really liked the A340 back then. I was just reading one where everyone thought Boeing should build a 777-sized aircraft with 4 engines to compete with the A340 (in addition to the already-in-profuction 777).Jump to post
