WN Lands At Wrong Airport (Part 1)

It was probably the same chimp that took over the controls from the FO last year and landed nose first. At least this time its able to fly away. Just Kidding Southwest fans dont report me.  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/stirthepot.gif" width="25" height...

That is what is known as carrying a big stick. It's not like Airbus has no ties to the EU and the governments of countries it manufactu...

RE: UA & DL Have 767-400's, Do They Like Them?

There is a simple answer to this question, the 764 does what it was built and designed exactly for very well. However due to its fairly decent size, I feel most people look at it and say well it should be able to fly with the 332 or 333 some even say it should have similair performance to the 77E. W...

RE: DFW-BOG - AA On A319

Its not the same type of service but our 319s also have 3 rows/18 seats of main cabin extra, which is 6 inches more leg room. Not a whole lot but on 2+ hour flights it helps.

RE: Lion Air 737 Overruns Runway

If you look at Lion Air's track record you can clearly tell its their pilots not their aircraft that are the problem. Responsibility also falls back onto the Indonesian Directorate General of Civil Aviation for not keeping tabs on saftey and training.

RE: Why Doesn't Boeing Or Airbus Make A Regional Jet?

Bombardier will go up to 108 and 130 pax with the CSeries program, someday. Also not to forget the good ole props, Q400 in the low 70's se...

RE: Clean Wing Policy - How Clean?

This is not a term taken lightly, however it is taken out of context. The term has nothing to do with cleanliness from dirt and grease. Just means clean from ice,snow, and even frost sometimes. Deicing fluid is generally heated and then pressure sprayed, the heat helps it to be applied and helps wit...
