Delivery flight in progress. https://www.flightradar24.com/SIA8895/1df55a7a That’s an extremely northerly route they’re doing here. TLS-SIN isn’t even a polar route. Are they trying to stretch the delivery flight upwards of 18 hours? Yeah where the hell are they going? Above Norway now, they must b...Jump to post

Reports from June was the requested thrust in the RFP is 45K, the CF6-80 is at 60.6K thrust, the 757 RB211 at 43.5K , and the LEAP at 28K. The 797 thrust puts it closer to the 757 in capability vs the 767. There are a lot of routes that the 737-10/A321neo are near the limits for payload on, and a g...Jump to post
So is the fuse going to be metal or carbon? Jon's intelligence back up the thread seems to point towards carbon, but I thought metal was the favourite? The 757 / 767 - style cockpit windows also seem to point towards metal... Remember aspects like 757/767 style cockpit are just place holders. The a...Jump to post
In today's ceremony of the arrival of B737 Max 9, they showed the interior of the new B737 Max 9 and it looks like they will be a 3 class aircraft. Business Class will have 16 lie flat seats, Economy Extra with 24 seats with 10 inch displays and Economy will only get streaming (no individual screen...Jump to post
This may be a stupid question but I thought the new ACF configuration had a dual overwing exit. I didn't think this was LR related but is it? Or is it just an option for those who don't need it certified for 220/240 passengers? Thanks It does, you can see it on the aircraft but it’s not outlined be...Jump to post

The only thing that matters is ...are there customers willing to pay real $$ for enough aircraft to start the program? I still have my doubts. Who especially, are the launch customers? I'll set down my marker here, so I can be embarrassed by it later. This is my guess for NMA launch (both carriers ...Jump to post

Referring to klm617, I would say hubs such as United’s IAH hasn’t grown at all, the passenger numbers there are actually been negative over the last two years. But there again other carriers are picking up the slack. But yes IAH is down a bit but they still have vast amount of options as far as cus...Jump to post

Preliminary findings regarding the accident as reported by AVherald: On Sep 5th 2018 Mexico's DGAC reported in a press conference first results into the investigation. There were three flight crew on the flight deck, a first officer in training was pilot flying in the right hand seat. The takeoff r...Jump to post
US birds are the aircraft within First Class, while the Australian ones most likely don’t feature F. I wanna say that isn’t right though because I feel like CX would operate F to Australia.Jump to post

Also the last 2 pages of this thread clears things up. The aircraft went up to FL410, no way it can do that on 3 engines. Even if empty.
Why are the 747-8 series not certified for 3 engine ferry ? AFAIK all other quads (DC8 series, CV880-990,707,747-100/200/300/SP/400, A340 series and A380 series are certified for N-1 ferry. And the 727 was certified for 2 engine ferry. But getting back to your question -- IMHO Boeing and their cust...Jump to post

I’d assume LATAM’s SCL-MEL would be up there. I tried finding much longer flights. 6,581nm is the longest I found. GE: PER-LHR=7,829nm (I know, flying winds...)

Who knows if they ever will, fleet plans can change very quickly and that is a large gap between them. It’s not like EasyJet is sending them out the door very quickly. Heck, didn’t they just bring back 2 aircraft for a short period?Jump to post
I just landed at EWR, I had to walk the length of the entire 3rd Y shaped concourse and saw one 764 after another boarding for European destinations. I know this has been discussed many times before but I’m not sure I ever read about a final decision. What is UA going to do with these rare birds th...Jump to post
737s are slow and bumpy by design and size. A 777 travels at about .85 mach routinely. I also find them a bit claustraphobic. Any flight over 2-3 hours is too long in a 737. Just my opinion, but I avoid them when possible. Utterly ridiculous post. ....not the least of which being that 7hr50min is t...Jump to post

Different airlines different thinking. Can't all be the same.
I've never encountered a w/s that created a noseover like that - very strange. W/S almost always creates a loss of lift which invariable causes the nose to pitch up. One commenter said it looked like a control input - either manual or A/P. I've seen the A/P do some crazy things trying to follow a b...Jump to post
I think due to deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) issues, QF may end up ordering a 778 with slightly higher MTOW to accommodate more fuel and seating limited to 240 passengers in roomier Economy and Business class seating for their Project Sunrise jet. It will have the range to fly between SYD and LHR non-...Jump to post

I wish to disagree, but I cannot. 787 and A320 with freighters is so much more rational. Lightsaber Indeed it is but with the 0800-0900 departures to USA, EY suffers a small payload penalty using the B789 to IAD which means operating it to ORD and LAX won’t be viable.
