Not sure if this is being talked about already but looks like some carriers are moving to cargo ops

I used to love this USAir one because of the 757 coming out of nowhere
Also anyone know where this was filmed?
Speaking as a former ramp agent, I did this because a lot of times bags with wheels would have a tendency to want to roll back down the belt loader. Putting them upside down prevented the wheels from rolling on the conveyor beltJump to post

Indeed it does, comes from the 787. The 787 doesn't have double-blinking strobes: https://youtu.be/H5YwQHJ8KLE?t=129 I think sure he is talking about the strobe lights on the tailcone, which the 787 does have. Well they are LED now so I guess technically not strobe lights. I was referring to the wi...Jump to post
Everyone at WN is trained and the a/c is flying without restrictions system-wide (there may be a few airports not permitting the MAX however - BUR?). MAX has definitely visited BUR already. https://youtu.be/X2GTZAh--L8 Good to see. I heard initially that it may not be going through BUR for some rea...Jump to post
https://www.simbrief.com/home/ It is a virtual flight planner for flight simulating. I use it as well and have always left the fuel factor at P0 (since I'm not sure what it does). Anyway, the fuel load it gives me, for the pmdg 737 has always been good. I'll fuel up with what the release gives me an...Jump to post

What is wrong with people?
Is trex8 correct about the 10 across? My first SY flight was DC-10 LAS-MSP, and my hazy recollection was a 2-5-2, but then again, it was Vegas...... ;) Oh wow!!! That is going to require some digging in my brain!! I am pretty sure it was 2, 5, 2. Of course I worked for United later in life, and spe...Jump to post

Despite DL's ever-growing presence in SEA, this kind of took me by surprise. I know WN is going seasonal on the route, but wonder if AS will upgrade to mainline or wait and see how it pans out.

Anyone know which tail number it is?
Guys is it me or is the 777-300ER a real struggler for high altitude cruising? Isn't it's service ceiling 43,000 ft? Yet on long haul trips I barely see it go above 35,000 feet even on low fuel! I mean even the 747-400 cruises higher and it's 30 years old! A B744 usually cruises at what, FL360, FL3...Jump to post
