MSN 243 (PR#4) new engine run Thanks. The A350 Production List shows this frame had its first flight on 9/11/2018. Any issue which might have necessitated the " new " engine run? A swap from Airbus owned engines to the final customer engines? This sort of practice has been mentioned a few...Jump to post

Im one of the only local photographers here, check my bio. I was just at the airport and heard ATC ask one of the Boeing pilots what their plans were.

IMO sitting in the front of the Y cabin is overrated. I've now started trying to pick seats in the back with the greater chance of getting an empty seat next to me. So far, I have a pretty good track record — better than when I bought or had access to E+. Exactly, the front seats aren't any better,...Jump to post
I didn’t think that civilian operators do touch and gos for training with civil airplanes. Boeing does them during test flights sometimes. I've done touch and goes in a CRJ for training before. Its not common much anymore but it is done. It's something that's very common for locos here in Europe wh...Jump to post

Yeah as a Brit who's done the Mickey Mouse run a few times, we've always made a point to stay a week somewhere along the Gulf Coast prior to our return home. We've never just visited solely for the theme parks etc. Same. We do a week around Orlando and a week on the Gulf coast. I have a friend at w...Jump to post
Main deck PE is entirely between doors 1&2, it would be difficult and inefficient I guess to partition the already relatively small space. It’s probably easier to partition the upper deck. Why does Virgin Atlantic split the upper deck on the 747 between coach and premium? From a passengers persp...Jump to post

With Trump in office? Never. And remember the US does what Israel says so probably will not happen for quite a while. No need to bring politics into this, regardless of if or how true that statement is. JFK has non-stop flights to AUH, DOH, DXB, KWI, JED and RUH so BEY should not be any different f...Jump to post

That's all that happened? That's all? :rotfl: Evacuating an entire terminal at one of the largest hubs in the World and forcing everyone to get re-screened at the expense of countless delayed flights is no small inconvenience.

I think we need a dedicated HiFly A380 operations thread.

I see this as an excellent idea. Builds on the existing process at many airports with aircraft under <19 seats that don't have screening. Simply raise this limit to include 50-seaters now. This would allow TSA to concentrate and fund resources at large airports. Because it's ok to murder only 50 pe...Jump to post

If it does turn out to be the result of a RTO after V1, the captain is going to have to justify why he aborted the takeoff when he did. It has to be something pretty serious or extreme post V1 for a pilot to abort instead of continuing the takeoff when you get to that speed due to the risk of an ov...Jump to post
This video seems to show a flattened trail leading back towards the runway and the aircraft sitting perpendicular to that trail.

I was appalled to see the way they kind of dragged that poor man who had to jump for dear life. I hope he didn't sustain serious injuries because of that "help".

I can tell you as a resident of the UK that it's big bad Boeing/the USA who has been getting a trashing over here about all of this. I imagine there will be some warplane cancellations but that's about it. It's not like the government can instruct BA not to buy Boeing next time to teach them a lesson.Jump to post
The article suggests they may go to Australia. Quite the difference between 9 abreast 777s and 787sJump to post
TS's A330s are 9 abreast though right? Doesn't exactly fit with the newer, more mainline experience that TCX are promoting on their long haul ops. I sort of suspect the TS 330 will be a short haul tourist bomber?Jump to post
Wow. I can't believe it, despite all the last minute reprieves I didn't actually think they would end like this. I've enjoyed many flights on Monarch over the years, and flown on almost all of their post 1990 fleet.

Agreed. The fact this was a freight flight and the FO was completely on his own and unable to help the Captain is traumatizing to imagine. To clarify, I'm not referring to the ability of the FO to get the A/C safely on the ground - they do that every day. But to helplessly watch as your co-worker p...Jump to post
I'm kind of surprised the A330neo did not win. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain, lots of trained pilots around, lots of spare parts, etc. Good range, good capacity, good economy.

Thanks Sir Tim. Totally captain obvious stuff, but maybe it doesn't seem that way from inside the US?Jump to post
The reason? EI says it is sticking with 330s, which is a fine aircraft no doubt, but with its hub at Dublin growing, it doesn't seem to make sense to stay with an aircraft of the same capacity they've had for the last 20 years. My guess: the case made by IB for these aircraft was better than that m...Jump to post
