Dude! This looks amazing! Those silver cowlings and the huge silver SAS. A stunning livery, finally!Jump to post

I can't really understand hating an airplane.
I've been a frequent flyer for years like most of you, having flown the 737 Classic/NG hundreds of times and always enjoyed it. But I sincerely hope (knowing this probably won't be the case) the MAX never flies again. Reading all these posts, learning about issue upon issue, all I can think about is...Jump to post
Moderators, I did a search for this topic but nothing came up. If duplicate, please delete. I found this video on YouTube tonight filmed by one of the passengers on board a BA A321 attempting to land at Gibraltar in heavy winds. Have a look from 5:30 min and onwards. What would cause such oscillati...Jump to post
I have to disagree with the opening post. I've read topics on this site for 15 years and I greatly appreciate everything I've learned on A.net. Some like Boeing. Some like Airbus. Some of us like both. And as for point 3 on your list: 3. All american companies are great and infallible. Allegiant?Jump to post
Turns out watchmaker Bremont has made a new limited edition watch called "Supersonic" incorporating a ring of aluminium from G-BOAB, the Concorde at LHR. I'd certainly buy one if I had GBP9495 to spend on it... Beautiful video about Concorde and the watchmaking process here: https://www.yo...Jump to post
Thanks for sharing your story. The BBC article was really something, too. The starboard wing of the DC10 looked remarkably intact even after a crash such as this one. Hopefully the sand won't cover the memorial site completely - it's astonishing to look at.Jump to post
I was on LH A320 D-AIPL recently and wasn't able to tell the airframe was over 28 years old. The cabin was in immaculate condition - almost like brand new. Not bad for a plane that first flew when I was three years old (1989).Jump to post

After trying out a bit of photoshopping on the current livery (and the one posted above) - I ended up really liking the new one. It's minimalistic, classy and smart. Adding a large crane feature in either silver or yellow, whether just parts of it or the entire one stretched beyond the tail onto the...Jump to post
I was looking at FR24 and saw A6-EEF, an A388 from DXB to JFK divert over Norway, attempt two landings at OSL before flying at FL120 to CPH where it circled what looked like an endless amount of times before finally landing. A short while later the same aircraft departed for JFK and is currently ove...Jump to post

That's Leirin Airport in Valdres! Very beautiful! And very quiet these days after the only scheduled flight they had stopped flying there.Jump to post
How is this done, exactly? Any airport may enter the competition and an equal amount of surveys are carried out with travellers at each airport?Jump to post

Looking at FR24, QF64 appeared as a lonely, little dot in in the southern Indian Ocean on its journey from JHB to SYD. Tracking the flightpath, focusing on the halfway point, there doesn't seem to be any diversion points anywhere close by; they'd either have to turn back towards Madagascar or north ...Jump to post
Good morning, everyone. Last night a particular memory came to mind of when I was flying DXB - LHR on a BA 744 back in June 2007. I remember this flight well as something unusual occurred during take-off, causing a few people to get visibly worried. It was a 2 a.m. departure from DXB, a fully loaded...Jump to post
I sometimes pull up FR24 to get a look at flights overhead, and I notice that unlike the packed airspaces of Europe, US and the Middle East, Africa seems almost devoid of flights in comparison. I'm guessing many flights don't show up as the aircrafts aren't equipped with ADS-B receivers, but then ag...Jump to post
Although WOW and FI fly their A321s and 757s from KEF as well as other carriers who operate their 757s TATL, I thought it was worth mentioning the beginning of a new era with scheduled 737s going across the North Atlantic too on a regular basis. (Not counting the daily SK B737 CPH-BOS). 3 B738 and 2...Jump to post
This is the flight history from FR24. I agree - I haven't seen "spiralling" like that before: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/qf9/#d97f62cJump to post
You may already have seen it, but if not - this is recommended to all AV-fans out there. I came across this 2-hour video from the last revenue flight with the BA Concorde, showing us what the experience was like from a passenger's point of view. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLkemu8rK8Q As many, I...Jump to post
A while back I posted a story on one of the oldest 747s stil flying: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=563543 I thought it would be fun to see what other oldies are still out there, starting with the B767 YA-KAM, a 34 year old B762 originally delivered to UA, currently flying fo...Jump to post
NB doing 8-9 hour trips? How many of those are out there? That would be cruel to the passengers in regular economy seats; come to think it, anyone on a NB. I rather enjoyed the UA 752 Y cabin on a 8 1/2 hour flight OSL-EWR - no remarkable difference from flying 767s or A340s TATL. But, each to his ...Jump to post
This was amazing. I was able to find 2 BA B772's and 1 B744 that I flew on a few years ago thanks to the LHR-archives. To see G-BNLT stored at VCV was a bit of a blow - she's the only 744 I've flown on, DXB-LHR back in 2007. Still, thanks for the tip!Jump to post
According to Bloomberg News, citing communications director Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen at DY, Norwegian is set to cut back on short haul routes at LGW and increase trans-Atlantic routes.

I recently flew on D-AIND with LH, a brand new A320Neo and the cabin crew working the back told me it is too cramped -- they're not fans of the new design. I'm not a big guy either, and I found the lavatory shoved into the very back extremely small - more like being inside a tiny closet than a tiny ...Jump to post
I would think a BBJ (Boom Business Jet) version might be attractive to some corporations, well to do individuals, and possibly some of the fractional outfits. But aren't there still limitations as to where you would be able to operate a commercial supersonic jet? The Concorde was limited to mostly ...Jump to post

I flew the BAe146 with Swiss a couple of weeks ago on FLR-ZRH. Quite a fun plane to fly on, actually.
I'm pretty sure you flew the Avro RJ 100. There are quite a few of those in Europe, but not many B146s.
I'm almost certainly going to get a 30 day suspension, or worse, from ANet for this post, but here goes: I agree with your story and feel that if you take up more than one seat, you should buy two. I had a similar experience to yours a few months back flying SK's CRJ900 TXL-CPH, but in all fairness...Jump to post
Ready for a treat? It looks like it's been a while since one of these posts, so I'll give it a go.
