Re: Titan A318 Lands on St. Helena

Minimum requirement would be for ATC, ground based navaid, airport operations, fire and rescue, customs, quarantine, and terminal/cargo security. It’s a weird requirement. I’m a center controller. We have plenty of airports with no towers that get dozens of IFR flights a day And how many of those I...

Re: The saga of AA431

They are landing runway 1 at DCA, with an approximately 9 knot tailwind on a wet runway. Landing an A321 with those conditions probably isn't the most prudent decision given the short runways.

Re: United proposes purchasing the a321lr for trasnatlantic flights

Let’s see, first, you need 6 crew, possibly 7 if third pilot. Second, substract about 450 nm for international reserves, then subtract about the same or more for westbound headwinds and high temp devs. Realistically, a 3800 nm plane. Plenty for DUB, SNN, LIS, MAD, KEF, OSL, but not BER, MUC, STR, N...

Re: British Airways kicks 20 passengers off flight because heat wave made plane too heavy

Not quite right - the assumption you've made there is that the 'typical business flight' load to IBZ has no checked luggage, so even if it's only 10 pax more than a normal load, you can assume that the normal business load's worth of pax would also be checking luggage on this trip, so the extra wei...

The American Aircraft may not be overwater equipped, and the Delta aircraft is. There is a pretty decent size chunk of the gulf that is not within 162nm of the shore. Going south from MSY will put you right inside that area.
