Is this for sure what route the aircraft will take or just what similar aircraft usually take ? What is the situation with crewing ? Does one crew fly the whole flight, and how long does a journey like this usually take ? I assume that the crew would then be flown back to Europe after having droppe...Jump to post
Cobham's first Q400 has just ferried to SNN for painting, expect it to arrive in PER before the end of the month. Three year old frame, ex D-ABQS of LGW/Air Berlin. What kind of a routing would that take on it's way to Perth ? Would seem like quite a long journey with quite a few stops en-route. Sa...Jump to post
Here's the first Cobham Q400, now painted in full livery. To become VH-IYJ.

Door/slide is supposed to disarm when the outside handle is opened. Either this was a failure or it was opened from the inside (most likely the case) and the person forgot to disarm, or didn't know how to Or, somehow, the cabin crew forgot to disarm/crosscheck that particular door.

The majority of aircraft door mechanisms take quite a determined shove to move the handle or lever, so you do have to wonder how the passenger didn’t wonder why it was so difficult to open a toilet door. Exactly. And the power assist feature that most doors have doesn't take over as quickly as some...Jump to post
Certainly goes against the conventional wisdom that pax don't know what aircraft they're travelling on. Remember, there's a tendency for people to evaluate the kind of aircraft they fly on thanks to incidents like this. It's relatively accurate that most people wouldn't know, nor care, if they're o...Jump to post
The main problem with SST's wasn't economics or reliability in my opinion, but ecological impact and the sonic boom throughout the whole flight where you are above Mach 1. This isn't adressed here . There's nothing to be addressed in regards to the sonic boom. It's all to do with an object travelin...Jump to post

Odd, since airfleets.net states it's still active. Not at all, really. It's not as if FedEx has to report the plane's impending retirement/storage to Airfleets.net before taking action. *snip* "Hey, a plane moved to VCV yesterday. I wonder why it did that." "I think it has been retir...Jump to post
VH-ZPT still remains in JetGo colours, but has had the Cobham titles painted onto both sides of the fuselage. It makes me wonder whether this aircraft is here temporarily. It's on an initial six month lease. Unlike the previous E190, this one isn't contracted to a specific client so Cobham is tryin...Jump to post
Cobham Aviation Embraer ERJ-190 VH-ZPT (ex VA and JetGo) is currently on it's way to Perth from Cairns. It arrived into Cairns wearing the JetGo livery (minus titles) on 15th May flying Nashville (BNA) - Van Nuys (VNY) - Hilo (ITO) - Cairns (CNS). Close - the routing is BNA-VNY-ITO- MAJ -CNS- ASP -...Jump to post
Someone please find the specs - as others indicated a smaller jet in the western world does not have the ability to dump, the 737 and A320 cannot, did the Russians incorporate it into the 100 ? No. It's been mentioned numerous times, the SSJ does not have dump capabilities. I always laugh at the au...Jump to post

Is it the same E190 they had back in the boom days?
Cobham Perth E190 arrives on Saturday with 2 new dash 8 Q400 arriving mid year. E190 will be used exclusively for chevron (BWB) while the Q400 will replace the aging BAe 146.

Seriously, though, vomit happens all the time on airplanes. I'd like to hear from other flight attendants what standard procedure is when a passenger-contact location like a seat is covered in spew. It has to be reported, right? Was that the case here? Or did the flight crew before not notice? Or c...Jump to post
As many people have stated, it's the customer code. For example, Continental's 737-800's are 737-824's, Southwest's 737's are 737-7H4's and 737-8H4's, Delta's 737's are 737-832's and 932ER's, and so on and so on. So, what was the point in repeating it yet again since you've already admitted that ma...Jump to post

Another question I have is why AA didn't chose a more metalic paint instead of that sickening grey?

But the "focus on customer service" as a main factor of profit is a good joke. When I think of CX "customer service", I think to my flight with them in the not-too-distant-past where a FA very clearly had a cold and was coughing both on her hands and onto the cart when undertaki...Jump to post

Gang, in looking at Delta's A350 fleet, it seems some have the curved winglet and some have the straighter, thinner winglet. But I'm not led to believe any are the XWB version.

This design will have an issue common to all high-wing passenger aircraft: where do you store carry-ons for passengers sitting directly under the wing box?

There are rumours swirling of Q400's by mid-year, plus the introduction (or rather, RE-introduction - hint, hint) of Ejets at one of the regional airlines. This has got me intrigued.

Is “The Spirit of Canada” and the proudly Canadian flag new with 787 or do they use it in all their marketing? I like those additions to the livery.
