Re: ANA converts some A321neo order to A321LR

I am confused. I thought the A321NEO was the A321LR. And the A321XLR was just an A321LR with extra fuel tanks.

Re: United Globe Livery "Evolution" coming in "April-ish"

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

If I were to guess, I would say the 777-9 would be the more efficient. Simply because it is the newer model.

The A321 picture, from the website, looks like the NEO version, so maybe that is why? I'm just guessing. I'm as perplexed as you are.

Are the requirements for relief pilots the same for flights which exceed 12 hours? An example would be like Air India's flight from Bombay to Newark.

The reason here seems to be that the mother did not return her child to the seat, no that she was breastfeeding the child. Isn't that the same reason in reality?

Please correct me if I am wrong but I have a similar memory. AA had opted out of the stall stick shaker option for the first officer seat (UA and CO opted to have that option). The first officer was at the controls and so didn't know the plane was in a stall, hence pulling back on the throttles. If...
