I don't understand why Boeing continue to pump out MAX's that can't fly and end up gathering dust in some corner of an airport or parking lot, instead of just admitting defeat for now, stopping building the MAX or at least slowing production way, way down (talking 1 or 2 a month) and just focussing...Jump to post

Someone with more airliner knowledge than me- why did they remove the cap over the nose once it was parked? Or was it covered? I wonder if that’s not a different aircraft. The one taxiing in had an orange radome, the last shot being one with a black radome. I believe you are right. Beyond the nose ...Jump to post
Still curious what AC's plan is for the 330 fleet. So now they'll have 19 333s in their mainline fleet and will add another 4 from TS. It remains to be seen whether the 4 from TS will be kept and for how long. And if so, will they be used as today or dedicated to something, like domestic transcon?Jump to post
From an internal source, AC has acquired a further 6 A330-300s, to bring the total fleet to 19 aircraft. I don't have any further information, as far as I gather, this is a very recent development, so very much subject to change. No word on delivery timeline, though I would not be surprised to see ...Jump to post

When AIFs help fund indoor forests, waterfalls, sculptures and fish tanks that’s when it bothers me. They are all unnecessary.

"AIFs are among the fees that get folded into airfares and combine to help make Canadian airfares substantially more than counterparts in the U.S., he explained.

Although summer months are not yet accounted for, so far the YTD decrease is already twice as high as what Isavia was expecting for the whole year in January.
How about DC-10s? I know none were ever delivered w/ RR either, but was it ever an option? I'm inclined to think not, but one never knows. . . It never was an option, however, during the '80s, it was considered with the DC-10-30R for BA, I believe. Airbus choose the CF6-50 engine on its A300 for co...Jump to post

Any thoughts on where the youngest of the fleet might go after? To be used for flights, I'd say Western Global. For parts, any of the current operators.

The three L1011s were resurrected from the desert to cover for delays in the deliveries of the A340s. This required shuffling of wide-body aircraft.
