[ I finally realized that I was putting in about 3000-3500 calories a day, and all my running wasn't keeping up with the calories. I reduced my caloric intake to 2000-2200 net calories, along with the exercise, and started dropping weight. I went from 210 to 160 in a period of about 6 months, or 1 ...Jump to post
The MAX winglets actually look very different to the scimitar winglets on the NG. The only thing that is the same is that one part goes up and the other down.

Disney would basically have to start a submajor airline with hubs at HNL (for the Aolani resort), SAN, MCO, and MIA/FLL. Interesting. Most of those destinations make sense.

Sorry to see these pretty blue TN birds go, I remember seeing them at LAX and thinking they were quite nice in contrast to all the UA battleship gray planes.

Interesting, I guess no point fixing up a busted engine if able if you're just flying it to its graveyard. Very unlikely for the engines.

What would be even better is an order for the 777-9. Great way to go Korean Air. No doubt. But with a lot of newer 77Ws, 748i & 388s they have left to cycle out, it will probably be a little while before they get to that point. But they will. May even end up being a fairly large tranche of 779s.Jump to post

I thought the -200 was simply an “ER” version of the -100. The -200B was the type that besides the extra range had also a longer upper deck to house more passengers.
