3. I don't include TK in the above as by most accounts there are a lot of politics surrounding TK's flight to CCS. I'm curious now. What's going on with TK and CCS? You are aware that Turkey, Russia and China are the main supporters of the regime. Word in the industry is that the flight is more a s...Jump to post
Martinique; Iberia at Santo Domingo, Air Europa at Punta Cana and TAP at Curacao. I don't know why those airlines insist on flying to CCS, for sure is because yields are high, I don't know. But with all those security issues, adding one stop to the flight, which increases their operational costs. W...Jump to post

Obviously they'll arrive in the new livery
Well in all honesty it's not bad, for UA keeping the globe that is. Definitely looks more fresh over the older design of the globe. Overall you can put me in the "it's not bad and will grow on me" camp. I have the same sentiment as you. Decent but not incredible. Just glad that they didn’...Jump to post
Forgive me if this has been asked already, but I don't want to read the previous 5800+ posts: Has Boeing given an estimated time s to when they expect to resolve the problem and get the planes back in the air?

You can see the 'walkway' here in this photo of a 1950s 'open house' at LAX. Look like it went under an access point for GSE https://i.pinimg.com/736x/3c/f1/7c/3cf17cae4838e54278e344ac5982a138.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/736x/3c/f1/7c/3cf17cae4838e54278e344ac5982a138.jpgJump to post
"All runways have been resurfaced with concrete, a more durable material than the previous asphalt. In April 2016, 8L/26R became the last runway to be resurfaced.

It looks like ATL doesn't have any dual bridges. Do they use a single bridge even for A380s? Google maps shows no dual bridges at ATL. The image shows two 747s, both using and having only single bridges. Gate F3 at the International Terminal has dual bridges. Google maps is not always current, whic...Jump to post
FedEx is moving to ONT. Why would these new terminals affect cargo carriers? Their ops are on the south side of the runways, way from all the construction.

747-8I, N894BA, flew directly from the Southern California Logistics Airport to Lackland AFB's Kelly Field Annex, Texas—the place where depot-level maintenance and modification occurs on the Air Force's 747-based VC-25A and E-4B fleets. It has been set for years that both aircraft would be transfor...Jump to post
Highly doubt it. Based on what people said the freight it was carrying is relatively light and even if there was a shift it’s nothing that a 767 couldn’t handle. Most shifts occur on takeoff and not mostly level flight. On top of that I thought I read that those airplanes are completely filled with...Jump to post

For those of us who have followed the airline industry in the long term, yes, the livery is a mixture of United and Continental. But it's been nine years since the merger and I would say that, to the general public, by this time, it is the United globe.Jump to post

I am willing to bet money that 28" will become the standard pitch in narrowbody Y on the US legacies in 10 years' time.

Yes, but there's no demand. Allegiant used to fly the MD-82 here. Air Force Two (a 757) has visited a few times along with a private 767. Of course, those latter two were carrying a lot less passengers/weight. In fact, you can find some 747s in the database back when SBA at a service center here. 02...Jump to post
