Per planespotters.net a 737-700 was delivered to LO on June 20th. I had no idea they had plans to add the 73G. It was stored since March of 2019, and just returned to service. Is this a short term lease or do they intend to keep this plane for a while? Hopefully it gets painted in the LOT colors soo...Jump to post
I apologize, maybe I'm not reading your response correctly, but I'm talking about the ERJ-145 with 50 seats, not the E175 with 76 seats. To your point though, most markets won't do well with 45 out of 76 seats filled, but with 45 out of 50 seats filled that could be quite the successful route if th...Jump to post
I don't know the answers to any of your questions, but I'm a big fan of the aircraft vs CR2s at least. They may be smaller (narrower), but they are more comfortable and the large windows are great IMO. In no way is a 145 a more comfortable airplane. The overhead bins are even more worthless than th...Jump to post
Yes they can still all be ordered … They will even build the EMB 120 Brasilia if anyone wants them. The real question is can an airline turn a profit filling only 45 seats on a 76 seat airliner … a lot of markets will not be able to handle a 76 seat aircraft and if that is all that is on the table,...Jump to post
I don't remember seeing anything posted about this recently... I was on Embraer's website and they still have the ERJ-135/140/145 all listed as currently produced aircraft. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the newest ERJ-145 was delivered only a few years back in 2016. Can we expect any more ...Jump to post

Some will say it shouldn't matter and that the family isn't telling the whole story, but I give these people the benefit of the doubt. I guarantee that this happens more often than we hear about it.

Well that's a poor job. The idea behind the colors I can understand: blue for the sky, turquoise for the sea and sand color representing the beach. But why the grey for the upper part of the tailfin and winglets? The execution could have far more elegant. https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2019/05/06/...Jump to post

I’ve wondered for a while why Delta breaks out the -400 into its own category when it doesn’t require a separate type rating. I don’t believe united does this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but last time I checked UA's pay scale, their 73Gs are in a different bracket than the 738s and 739s. Not sure abo...Jump to post
They clearly lucked out with the landing gears not collapsing. How long would an aircraft in such an incident like this be out of service? It's still flyable, but I imagine they must examine the tires and landing gears in some way to ensure they weren't damaged or compromised.Jump to post
I really enjoy these types of videos. Thanks for sharing!
So cool to see such a complex process sped up right in front of your eyes. I always wish they would show the interior being installed though - cockpit, seats, lavatories, crew rests, galleys, etc.

Hi all - I've known for a while that Piedmont flies to Boston from Harrisburg, Rochester, and Syracuse. I didn't think much of it, but today I started wondering why these routes are still served.

Since DL has the A220 now and SBY is expanding the runway why not add SBY and fly NS to DTW and ATL. SBY is my hometown airport, so I feel obligated to post a response here.

Not sure if they do it anymore, but a few years ago at PHL I boarded a bus to go from terminal F to A/B.

Piedmont is close to receiving the final and 60th delivery of the "new" ERJ-145s. However, these aircraft are nowhere near young or new. Their current fleet has ages between about 14 - 21 years.

the best thing I can think of is that they are looking at updating/refurbishing their existing fleet and maybe retro-fitting them with those new winglets...

What may be happening is simply the death of WOW’s second bank structure. It was creating a lot of problems with the midnight arrivals in the USA for CBP.

Did their model ever work to begin with? When airlines start adding routes like WW did, there is a period of success because adding these flights can often stimulate market demand that would otherwise not have been there.

It makes sense and would be easy of course to do it with one leg at a time - like let's say a BWI-BNA leg isn't entirely full, so they downguage it from a 738 to a 73G to better utilize the 738. But unlike the majors, WN's planes don't normally turn around to go right back to the same airport it arr...Jump to post
American's new livery sometimes has subtle differences on the tail. Many have pointed out that the red/orange/scarlet coloring on the tailfins is not always painted the same on every jet. I believe this was also mainly on the regional jets, not mainline aircraft.Jump to post

So we all know that airlines book hotels for crew members when they stay the night away from their home-base.

This test might have been done on a small prop-plane wing, causing people to say the results might look exaggerated.

This is true. Although I understood the OP asking why all aircraft aren't ETOPS capable, even if the airline and program aren't planning to certify or use it.

ETOPS is not something that you just buy from the factory- ETOPS is also an ongoing maintenance program that essentially has higher standards than a normal program.
