Re: Ryanair starts flying to Georgia

Stalin is pleased from his grave, jokes apart, is there such a large Georgian diaspora that specifically originates from Kutaisi and it's adjoining areas for such routes to be feasible?

Japanese 777-200/300 MTOW's?

I was a bit curious as to whether like the 747SR and 747-400D, do the Japanese derate their 777-200's and 777-300's which fly domestic and regional International routes as well? If so, what are the exact values specific to both JAL and ANA?

Assuming this new limit has already been certified and considering Cathay and it's Dragon subsidiary's mission profiles, I'm assuming they can still fly about 5-7 years more

Re: Cathay Dragon's A330 Prototypes

Given the fact that these have much higher useful lives than their predecessor Aircraft i.e- DC10/L1011 and that despite being nearly 27 years, are technically not old technology, I expect them to last a few more years into the next decade until finally they're dumped in a Scrap Yard. Unlike the Bru...

Re: Airbus A330neo Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

I wonder will it's performance match that of the 787-9 if the MTOW is bumped up again to 254tons instead of 251tons currently.

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - July 2019

Pakistan airspace is open to all commercial traffic. So, did India back down and give into Pak’s Demand that India withdraw its fighters from the forward operating base (in exchanging for opening its airspace)? And, was it a secret agreement so the Indian Government won’t be embarrassed? Nothing in...

they are trying to shake of the stain of the MAX but 8200 is very lame and uninspiring.

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - July 2019

Second? No way. Third largest is a realistic possibility. I'd have agreed with you if it was 2014 There's no way Indian aviation sector gets bigger than China's or US' by 2030. By 2030, both China and India will overtake that of the US, it's simple demographics, when a large portion of about 2.5 Bi...

Re: Operating Weights of Emirates 777-300ER's

They may well be and they may well not be. CIs GECAS leased 77Ws have higher MTOW than the ones they ordered directly from Boeing. I suspect GECAS orders the highest weight variants as future lessors may need it, CI for their own direct orders ordered the lowest they needed for their route network ...

Re: Operating Weights of Emirates 777-300ER's

In that case what would the MTOW for these "redux" versions be? Should be 775,000lbs out of Boeing. Anything less becomes a paper exercise. The comments about late production versions have nothing to do with the MTOW. It will impact OEW weight but there is so much variation in cabin equip...

Re: Operating Weights of Emirates 777-300ER's

The 1H is the Boeing customer code for Emirates, while 6N is GECAS. The weights should be the same. They may well be and they may well not be.

Operating Weights of Emirates 777-300ER's

Hello All, I had a query on the operating weights of EK's 77W fleet. I understand that EK has a fleet both 777-31H(ER) as well as 777-36N(ER), hence I was wondering was there any specific difference in the operating weights of the two versions and as well as any difference between the very first 77W...

Re: LOT News Thread - 2019

Ok, a bit specific about LOT. Does anybody know the exact BOW, ZFW, MTOW of their 787-8 and 787-9 and Cost Indexes used by them. I know that they have their own fleet page with some of the stats, but seeing them, they look rather heavily padded to the point of being inaccurate. Hence I needed some i...
