I fly on Azul Brazilian Airlines a couple of times a year and I have noticed that their flight attendants are always relatively young as compared to their counterparts with American, Delta and United Airlines. Does Azul have an upper age restriction for their flight attendants such as when an attend...Jump to post
Is there a reason Azul doesn't operate long haul out of GRU? I know they operate out of VCP for their main long haul routes.. But I think they are missing out on GRU. LATAM isn't the strongest competitor at the moment and Azul offers a very competitive product.. VCP is a nice airport but not really...Jump to post

Does anyone know what equipment United used initially in its Hawaii service? I have seen old pictures of Boeing 377 Stratocruisers at SFO bound for Honolulu, so that’s my guess. ... The UA launch aircraft on May 1, 1947 was the DC-6 SFO-HNL and was then the longest over-water commercial airline rou...Jump to post
I flew out on Azul Brazilian Airlines a couple of weeks ago on a Monday morning and my flight departed using 10R instead of 10L which is the usual runway of choice for Azul. The A330 got off the ground with plenty of room to spare which was impressive considering that the plane was fully loaded with...Jump to post
I was just reviewing Azul's route map within Brazil and I noticed AD flies to many small cities some of which are only served by AD.
Does AD recieve subsidies from the Brazilian government to fly to smaller cities that may lack commercial air service otherwise? Or is the flying done on their dime?
Yesterday (Tuesday) I flew on AD's FLL - VCP daytime flight. First time flying in the daytime as I have always flown this route utilizing the red eye. Interesting thing is that there were alot of families with children onboard the daytime flight compared to the red eye flights I have done. The dayt...Jump to post
Because Lima isn't really far enough away from North America or high yield enough to warrant red eyes both ways with an aircraft on the ground all day long. Sao Paulo (GRU) is the only city in South America economically important enough to warrant the cost of an aircraft on the ground all day to de...Jump to post
On every AA flight that I have been on the last several years one of the flight attendants makes a sales pitch for signing for up an AA Citibank card. Do AA flight attendants make a commission for each customer that signs up and is approved for a Citibank card?Jump to post
A Piper and Cessna collided while in the pattern, apparently for Runway 30R. My "home" airport when and where I learned to fly, very familiar with the pattern and will await the NTSB report for cause.

DEN wants to attract more international service so how about trying to get flights to and from Brazil, Chile, Argentina...etc Great idea! Why not flights to Tahiti, Australia and Egypt too! Just thought it would be a consideration since United is already flying to deep South America from other airp...Jump to post
In real life would an airstrike even be feasible against such a heavily defended target surrounded by high mountains? Seems to me that a barrage of submarine and/or land based missles would do the job. That "defended target" did not have even one access road... go, figure... what do you w...Jump to post

The report I read said after this a-hole shot up the place, he put the gun to his chin but the cops talked him out of doing himself in.

My vote goes for Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International (FLL), my hometown airport. The terminals are close to the main taxiways and runways so for one of the busier airports in the United States the taxi times for both departures and arrivals are minimal. Flew out of FLL on Azul a couple of months...Jump to post
The approval is more related to the airline, not the aircraft. Airlines are approved by regulators (CASA in terms of QF) to conduct ETOPS, not specific aircraft tails. It is that regulatory approval which limits the times and routes they can operate. Yes this is true, but different aircraft types a...Jump to post

Queen Elizabeth is 95, and Charles is 73. I think at this point a "dry-run" of the handoff is definitely being rehearsed every few years, but I doubt Queen Elizabeth would ever abdicate. What is known, is that Charles will serve a far shorter tenure as King than Elizabeth did. In addition...Jump to post
Not really that interested in what the US foreign office is suggesting their citizens do, to be honest.

I get why they turned back. The UK would have potentially deported her and they'd have to pay to bring her back, or they'd be obligated to somehow get her back to the US if she continued her trip. Also, they couldn't risk the liability of her having COVID and spreading it to other passengers. You c...Jump to post
I get the feeling that Putin is not too fearful of economic sanctions at this point. Perhaps if the United States and its NATO allies had inserted ground troops and aircraft in Ukraine last year Russia would have backed off.Jump to post
