Hi, not sure if this has already been mentioned but it seems when sorting a photo search by year ascending the approximately-dated photos appear before those with more-precise dates.

All inbound passengers to the US clear customs and immigration at their first US or pre-clearance port.
Note as well, though it's not overly important, that it's technically a connection in LAX (QF15 to QF11) as the direct QF11 service is SYD-LAX-JFK.
Why ICAO codes, which is the aviation, as opposed to airline, standard.

How is Haneda suddenly a Las Vegas airport?
It's not. Henderson is though.
Cube dwellers don't think much about that 10% like they used to, so we get performance turds. The closest a recent aircraft has come to a 757 in terms of airfield performance was the 787-3. It was 6,400-feet of runway sea level/hot day at MTOW (7,200' at altitude). Man that would have been a ride. ...Jump to post
Can you quit putting periods in US numerals you post cause otherwise you just show us the slowest plane ever. I doubt the Q400 flying 1.037 miles =2:15 min. Now I can can see the Q400 flying 1037 miles =2:15. In German, we always divide the numbers into blocks of three in a row to improve the reada...Jump to post
Wasn't the 787 originally called the 7E7? So it's possible Boeing move to using middle letters once they run out of numbers e.g. 7A7, 7B7 Except that they'll overlap on more than just that - 7E7 was indeed the project name for what became the 787, but they've also used 7N7 for the concept study tha...Jump to post
Heard that it was doing very well. They were forced to stop. Why? The grant of fifth-freedom rights to NW for service between OSA and SYD limited them to no more than 50% non-connecting capacity - the other 50% had to be connecting traffic between the US and Australia, or empty. Since nobody really...Jump to post
You hear a lot about how crummy US carriers are but I think they're leaps and bounds ahead of intra European, including th AFs, LHs and BAs of the world. Having come to Europe from a long and happy relationship with QF I similarly found that Euro short-haul can be a bit weak on service - but at lea...Jump to post
I think it's rather telling that a great deal of the support for this livery seems to be based not on its aesthetic merits but rather on the fact that it looks "less Continental". In my mind it's a major step backwards. Billboard titles can work but they need to be larger - this design is ...Jump to post

For the benefit of people who can't follow links: Unique, fixed customer codes were used by Boeing Commercial Airplanes to denote the original customer for airframes produced as part of Boeing's 7x7 family of commercial aircraft between 1956, with the introduction of the 707, and 2016. ...

So what you are saying is that they were delivered as non ER's, and then converted to a ER spec. ER and ETOPS are not the same. ER (and LR, for the 772) is Boeing's way of indicating e xtended r ange (co-inciding with higher MTOW), but it has nothing to do with where that range takes it. It is poss...Jump to post

The other prefixes they use are D-AExx for the (Cityline) Embraer fleet which could technically be expanded to 676 frames, just as the D-ACxx Cityline CRJ fleet. Looking back, the fleets of Augsburg Airways and Contact Air, who did most flying for Lufthansa, also followed that scheme with D-ADxx fo...Jump to post
Guys, if y’all look at the top of the reference image, it seems like the title of it starts with “CON.” I have a feeling this is stock footage when Continental first started painting their aircraft.

It did NOT require power to open, though it was electrically powered. Ah, sorry mate, I misunderstood you - yeah the doors could be manually operated, but the air tank was there to blow it open in an emergency. By contrast, the 767's doors used the counterweight both for manual ops and emergencies.Jump to post

Actually, the door is "unplugged" manually by the action of using the Emergency Open handle, after which the air is discharged. If by some freak chance the aircraft was still pressurised, it wouldn't be possible for the person operating the handle to overcome the difference. You may be int...Jump to post

Does anyone have more news about the VOA granted to 60ish countries including the 28-European Union state, the Portuguese-speaking countries bloc along with Argentina, Canada, Chile and the US?

Also, I think the states only regulates the first letter of the reg right? Because AB used to have D-ABxx on their fleets, regardless of the aircraft type.

I always thought it was similar with the 3 letters registration format (first letter shows the airline, second letter represents the type, and third one is individual ID). How true this is ?

Wonder if a LCC would be able to run 4/4 single aisle on something like that for high density?

Outdated how, exactly? Simple: you install a wonderful fancy-pants top-of-the-line seatback IFE system tomorrow.

Why get rid of seatback TV screens, Channel 9, and in-flight audio systems? To save money. Not offering in-seat IFE reduces weight, reduces maintenance requirements (both planned and unplanned), and eliminates the problem of the in-seat system becoming outdated. It's a trend being seen for the most...Jump to post
Amusingly, there are two main approaches to avoiding this in future: * Modernised GPS uses a 13-bit week counter, allowing for just shy of 158 years between roll-overs.

I thought it was interesting that the A319 does not have a no-smoking sign with the buckle-up sign and wi-fi sign. Instead there is a sticker above the tray table.
