This makes sense that it'll be Boeing. Boeing's headquarters is in Everett which is closer to the Vancouver Metro Area than Downtown Seattle. I went by car from Abbotsford to Seattle and the drive from Abbotsford to Everett takes about 2 hours. Which company wouldn't want to be close to their corpo...Jump to post
Fact is Boeings initial response was arrogant and heartless. My family and I flew 2 flights on a WN Max between Lion Air and Ethiopian. Not sure how I can best characterize it, but arrogant doesn't come to mind. After the first crash, I'm searching for an antonym for "alacrity," (apathy?)...Jump to post
I believe it was farcical, hypothetical situation. A joke.
Lots of people inferring get-home-itis here.

It is a disturbing trend (B6 is doing it now too) to get a completion factor metric. As someone flying 15 years, the negative effects of cancelling and rebooking are better than the negative effects of making people wait 22 hrs in the airport. The DOT, needs to break out a new category titled “exce...Jump to post
Maybe for production it's rail shipped? Fan separate from core? I assume that's how the GE90 gets there. Once again, they are brought by antonov.

From a quick glance at the plans in the video, looks like the new TSA checkpoint will be added to the right portion of the terminal that is currently part of the apron. Then BTV will be able to remove the temporary container connector I agree, they'll push the walls to the right, build a new perman...Jump to post
30 sec explanation over the gate PA would have taken away a good portion of the poor customer experience. Why is it so difficult to inform customers (not just this incident)? You're living in a dream world. Most people pay no attention to the PA announcements at the gate or onboard the aircraft. Ri...Jump to post
The Lion Air flight which survived had an extra pilot in the cockpit. It was the pilot not involved with flying the aircraft who saved it. That's the difference between the two. Without him being in the jumpseat there would probably have been two Lion Air MAX crashes in quick succession. I'm not su...Jump to post
BTV is going to have the unusual distinction today of seeing all three of B6's current aircraft models today. B6 34 arrived early this morning with an A320 and B6 1634 is currently en-route with an A321 (Mint even!) I assume this is for recovery from the recent weather problems. It's good to know t...Jump to post
I think Boof's pedantic point about Envoy is to make it clear that if an *Envoy* flight attendant loses a hand, AA will only replace 3 of 5 fingers because the CONTRACT is DIFFERENT. So, totally on topic and contributing a lot to the discussion.Jump to post
Here’s a schematic of the new walkway to connect the North and South terminals at BTV. So it looks like the walkway will in fact go right through the 2nd floor offices, then punch a hole through the wall at one of United’s mainline gates. Is anyone familiar with the layout of BTV’s administrative o...Jump to post

Why would Amazon plan to build their 1.5 Billion facility adjacent to the DHL CVG hub ?

It would be far cheaper for the US gov to use the proceeds of taxed Chinese goods to subsidize Boeing and other industries impacted by reduced Chinese imports. The US citizens paying Boeing for not delivering planes to China because of Trump's policies. Makes sense I guess. Or how about addressing ...Jump to post
AOA disagree is present on WN NGs, and was absent from the WN MAX until it dawned on someone after the Lion Air crash that it wasn't part of the WN package? Sheesh. I can see how that would be disturbing to, well, everyone. Or is it not on the NGs? Business Insider sort of implies that it is.Jump to post
Personally, it wouldn't surprise me if this is nothing but more PR response from Foeing (FAA/Boeing). "Hey look, Boeing's not the only one with AOA sensor issues, not the only one with systems that push the nose down." The FAA is conspiring with Boeing to do it's job? Does that dovetail i...Jump to post

You said “There is simply no way that the people putting it together were not aware they were making serious (and multiple) violations of FAR25 and DO-178b.” That’s what I said sounded like conjecture.

Southwest uses dual jetway boarding at Albany Intl. in NY That’s what I thought this thread was going to be about as well.

United is prohibiting basic economy customers from having carryons that don't fit under the seat, and charging to check carryon sized bags.

More a symptom than a cause of why big US companies strangle themselves. They kill their own experienced workforces because they're expensive when viewed in the light of being extremely reluctant to invest in any capital-intensive project without huge guaranteed upside. But China is willing to inves...Jump to post
The great tragedy in the MCAS debacle is that it's a system that was designed to increase safety after the airframe reconfiguration increased the likelihood of stalls. I see this as #1, there's the assumption (cert. requirement?) that the plane must automate its way out of that situation, rather tha...Jump to post

Knowing nothing about automation in the 767, I could be convinced that the NTSB meant it was human input, or I could be convinced that they mean it's an input from another source. Not as clear as it could be. They are clear that the heading of 270 came from input to the ADS-B, and they are not clear...Jump to post
500 planes of domestic flying produce about 1500 roundtrips. That's three new 500 departure hubs added to their network because many of their existing hubs can't grow much more (MDW/DAL/LAX/FLL). Where could they put three 500 departure hubs absent a merger? This is an honest question, not passive ...Jump to post
It's kind of like the Edsel, or New Coke. It transcends talking about airplanes (it is a neat airplane after all) and jumps into the pantheon of spectacular business failures. And so does the 787 supply chain.Jump to post
