Serious lack of competition on trans Atlantic flights, between all the JVs there is a cartelization of airlines and hence air fares ...which is often repeated here, but never backed up with numerical evidence. There's at least 43 airlines that operate transatlantic by my rough count... I think what...Jump to post

No, no and no. No hypersonic passenger planes, no blended wing airliners, no rocket planes straight out of The Man in the High Castle. Like it or not, we're stuck with tubes with two ever-more-efficient fanjets for as far as anyone can see. Development costs are just going to be too high to spread ...Jump to post

Man, NYC-BOM is going to have a lot of capacity now, especially if DL's plan is to fly JFK-BOM and not ATL-BOM (believe it is still undecided, but could be wrong). It could be 2x EWR-BOM and ~1.5x JFK-BOM. I think there's a clear sense that the ME3 foothold can be broken into quite a bit by overfly...Jump to post

So what’s the deal with the names, do we know this guys actual name yet? In the audio the guy refers to the name Andrew, but obviously ATC is calling him Rich. His name was Richard "Beebo" Russell.

I agree with 1%.. or less each year. TBH the ME3 don't work for USA travelers. Wanna go to euro... can't. wanna go to South America? Cant. Wanna spend twice as long in a plane to Asia? Sure...

yea, wow that's too much energy for me. Kids would love it. But these briefings aren't directed at 10 and under children.

This is not confirmed, but this is word from a flight attendant that knows what they're talking about Mr Cooley and his travel partner were not booked together. One in premium, one not in premium.

“Alaska Airlines has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind,” - This is an excerpt from their public statement.
Ok if you really do have a zero tolerance. Then fire the involved employee. If you say zero then mean zero. Zero = Zero.

How will Delta not have to pay tariffs now? The 220% tariff is on the product, not the manufacturer.Jump to post
Yo 80% on any bombardier plane..... 300% on C series. geez.
Is this a trump thing? I don't want to hear trump administration, or branch of gov't led by trump. His words, his mouth. Is this him?
Has there been a precedent? It sorta sounds like out of nowhere.
Bravo. The nationalization of the C-series program stunk to no end, but then to use that financial lifeline as a crutch to dump product in a foreign market was one step too far. Totally agree. But what happens to the delta order? Do they still get it at the previously agreed upon price? Does bombar...Jump to post

I have 0 in-depth knowledge, but 10 must be type maximum. 757s are regularly pushing 9ish westbound.
757s fully loaded must be slower than their wide-body counterparts; they are doing westbounds quicker at a rate of 1-2 hours less.
I'm not going to lie though, getting a wheelchair out of the bin of a 737, particularly the 739 is relatively difficult. I'm not sure what plane they used but if it was a 737 I could possibly understand why it was destroyed. Dude seriously? No it wasn't a 737. They were flying from Euro to Newark.....Jump to post
Besides, they are trying to play catch up with the other blue chip players out there.

Good luck talking yourself out of this one. What need is there for "luck" when the answers are straightforward? Here, since you insist, let's examine. (P.S. learn to use the quotes function. It's not difficult, even for you. Would make this so much less cumbersome). "Actually, it's q...Jump to post
