Re: E-170/175 Motion Sickness Question

One thing I noticed about myself when flying is I am more prone to motion sickness when I "fly on an empty stomach". If you must fly again on the E-170/175, make sure you're fed and then see if you're feeling the same.

Flightaware does not have an estimated calculation anymore. It is just showing the tracked route (green trace) and that's it.

My deepest condolences to the families of those on board.

As the idea sounds ideal, I highly doubt anything passed a re-engine can happen. How can you invest into a stretch option if you have not yet broken even in the original option? Investors will see it as too risky. Especially with upcoming aircraft (A350, B787, and B77X) being so efficient. The A380 ...
